The Sigma 85mm f1.4 EX DG HSM lens is a large aperture medium telephoto lens and features the natural perspective that an 85mm focal length provides. The f1.4 aperture makes this length perfect for portraits and low-light photography - the one SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element and the one glass mold element gives excellent correction for all types of aberrations. On an APS-C size image sensor, the Sigma 85mm f1.4 EX DG HSM lens is effectively a 127.5mm f1.4 lens. This lens also features a rear focus system that ensures little fluctuation in aberration when focussing the lens. A Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghost even in backlit photography and the HSM ensures quiet, fast auto-focus and full-time manual focus capability. The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 85cm and a maximum magnification of 1:8.6.

Comments about Sigma 85mm f1.4 EX DG HSM - Canon Fit:
I own several canon L lenses but this sigma version locks on faster than canon's own f1.2. Got fed up with all the hunting and out of focus shots with the canon that it had to go. I love 85 mm as a focal length, so thought I would take a punt on the sigma. Not only does it look better mounted, it also comes with a proper lens hood and is easier to attach to a camera body. The canon is quite fat in comparison and a small point I know, but it wasn't the easiest to attach to my 5D. Very impressed with initial test shots, accurate focus and lovely bokeh. Is even excellent at f1.4 and sharpens up as you step down. As the price of original brand continues to rocket I will definitely consider sigma for future purchases.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Always been a firm believer that brand lenses outweigh independents - not any more! This is sharper than the Canon 85 1.2, its robust as hell and its half the price. If you really need that extra fifth of a stop then nothing else will do, go for the Canon, but if you don't this is a far better option.
