The 85mm f/1.4 has Sigma's HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) which provides fast, accurate and quiet autofocusing. The exterior of this lens is EX-finished which translates to a superior build and optical quality, enhanced handling and appearance. It comes with a petal-type hood to block out extraneous light.

This fast f/1.4 lens is great for capturing fast moving images, allowing you to use faster shutter speeds, and is what you want when shooting under low lighting conditions. This highly efficient lens has a nine blade circular diaphragm for creating pleasant out-of-focus highlights (bokeh) which is a major asset to portrait and wedding photographers.

Note: This lens is designed for use with full frame digital cameras. May also be used with smaller APS-c size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 127.5mm with most cameras.

Note:
If the camera body does not support HSM, autofocus will not be available.

question

Does this lens perform significantly better than the Canon 85mm 1.8, or is the difference so minimal that it is not worth the extra $400? Thank you.
Asked by: Felix M.
I dont have a 85mm canon. But I have a 100mm one and there is a night and day difference between the Canon and Sigma. I absolutely love the Sigma.

question

Does the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM also incorporate the inner focusing system? Or, does the lens extend outwardly while focusing?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM Lens will feature a rear-focusing design. This means that the moving elements of the lens are located behind the diaphragm. It will not change length as you focus.
