When you choose a Sigma Art lens, you can trust that it will feature excellent optics for high performance, the latest lens technologies and premium components so you can capture stunning images you’ll be proud to share with family, friends and clients. The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens is a superior portrait prime lens in the Art Series.
Equipped with nine circular aperture blades and a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, this Sigma 85mm prime was built to deliver gorgeous portraits with professional-level bokeh. Relish the chance to gain greater control over depth of field to create contrast between crisp subjects and smooth, out-of-focus surrounds. Beyond portraits, gorgeous bokeh can also be highly effective in nature photography and other creative compositions – and the f/1.4 aperture is perfect for low light conditions.
The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens features a recently updated Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) that enables a 1.3x improvement in torque over previous generations. It also features an optimised AF algorithm. Combined, these factors ensure fast and efficient autofocusing. Better yet, it’s also quiet, and a full-time manual focus ring allows override control by simply rotating the focus ring at any time.
Expect to notice the outstanding image quality with this Sigma Art lens, thanks to its superior-quality optical construction. With two SLD elements, one anomalous partial dispersion/high-refractive index element, and one aspherical element, the lens is designed to combat aberrations and deliver images flaunting sharpness, clarity and contrast. The lens elements also have a Super Multi-Layer Coating to offset flare and ghosting and further improve image quality.
The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens is compatible with the Sigma USB Dock, so you can always connect to fine-tine your lens characteristics and update the firmware as you wish.
