How does this lens compared to the Sony 85 1.8 ...

How does this lens compared to the Sony 85 1.8 lens? The 85 mm lens is my most used lens for outdoor portraits work and also for my studio shoots. I'm debating between the Sigma vs the Sony 85 mm 1.8 lens.
Asked by: RAJAN
This lens is much sharper, bokeh smoother, and overall a much better lens than the Sony 1.8. It also is very possibly superior to its brother the Sony 1.4 IMO. The Sony 85 1.8 is a high value lens in its own right for the price but after shooting with both I much prefer the Sigma 1.4.

How bad is the pin cushion distortion?

How bad is the pin cushion distortion?
Asked by: Andy
The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG DN Art Lens for Sony E has a telephoto optical design, so the lens is shorter than most 85mm lenses. This optical design does cause heavy pincushion distortion. The distortion is easily corrected in post.

Is the video AF on point; is there any focus hunting? Would this be recommended for video and photo or just photo.
Asked by: Sunil
I can also vouch for this, I have the lens, and it focuses very well for photos AND video, even in low light! Sigma has a real winner on their hands with this lens. It's magic :)

I own this lens and love it for studio work. In my opinion, the images are amazing. Does anyone know how the image quality compares to the Sigma 105mm F/1.4? I know the 105 is a beast. I don't care about the size and weight difference - only the image output and performance. Would you add the 105 if you already have this 85mm lens?
Asked by: James
I used to own the 105mm 1.4 and now own the 85 1.4. In terms of optics they're both very very sharp. The 105mm though has a very distinct look that the 85mm can't match. If weight and size isn't a big factor for you, the 105mm is definitely the way to go. I only let it go because the weight was too much for me.
