- Ultimate Portrait Lens. To create a top-performing 85mm F1.4 lens
- Full-time manual focus override allows the lens to be switched
- Uses FLD glass, which is equivalent to fluorite in performance
- 7-year Canadian warranty
Designed and engineered for unparalleled image quality, the Sigma 85mm 1.4 Art employs a completely new optical design and premium components. 2 FLD (performance equal to fluorite) glass elements and 1 element boasting a high rate of anomalous partial dispersion and high refraction achieve a class leading level of performance. The highly anticipated 85mm 1.4 Art is an ideal lens for a variety of photographic subjects, particularly portrait photography, both in-studio and on-location.
Fifth Large-Diameter F1.4 Lens for Full-Frame Sensors. Among its new product lines, this is the fifth large-diameter F1.4 lens SIGMA has introduced for cameras with full-frame sensors. SIGMA is the only lens manufacturer that covers 20mm to 85mm lenses at F1.4 brightness in its lineup.
The Ultimate Portrait Lens. To create a top-performing 85mm F1.4 lens, SIGMA leveraged its latest innovations in design and materials. The result is the ultimate lens for portraits. By taking chromatic aberrations to the absolute minimum, this lens offers performance that goes beyond, including incredibly sharp resolution and a beautiful bokeh effect.
Special Low Dispersion Glass. Incorporates two elements made of SLD (Special Low Dispersion Glass) and one element with a high rate of anomalous partial dispersion and a high index of refraction. These features help ensure a clear image throughout the plane. The optical system also minimizes sagittal coma flare for outstanding image quality without streaking – even at wide-open aperture.
Bokeh Effect. Elements made of SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass and an optimized power distribution help minimize axial chromatic aberration. In the areas in front of and behind the point of focus, the optical system produces an attractive and natural bokeh effect by producing a smooth gradation of focus and minimizing streaking.
New Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) for AF Control. Newly designed Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) offers 1.3 times the torque of its predecessor. Even at low speeds, it offers exceptionally stable performance, and the updated AF algorithm helps ensure nimble autofocus performance. In addition, full-time manual focus override allows the lens to be switched to manual focus simply by rotating the focus ring—even during continuous AF. The user can quickly find the perfect focus without needing to touch the focus mode switch.
