The Sigma 85mm f1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Sony E joins the already well-known Sigma Art Series and introduces the popular 85mm focal length with enhanced optical performance to a range of lenses widely used by professional photographers. Combining a 9 bladed diaphragm with a super wide f/1.4 aperture ensure the lens has an ultra-shallow depth of field with stunning bokeh and incredible low light performance.
Picture Perfect Portraits
85mm focal length lenses have always been highly regarded for portraiture work, because of their strong background compression and exaggeration of bokeh. This technique is perfect for visual storytellers to fine tune their shots and to ultimately create compelling imagery. Not just limited to portraits though the lens can be used for close-ups, casual snaps, and is excellent for video work as well.
Wide f1.4 Aperture
The large f1.4 aperture easily creates a shallow depth of field combining smooth out of focus backgrounds with razor sharp detail where the camera is focused. This feature allows you to choose what your audience notice first by using focus as an expressive tool.
9 Bladed Gorgeous Bokeh
Utilising 9 blades to create a circular aperture enables the lens to render beautiful out of focus areas to allow you to create stunning photographs and videos.
Advanced Lens Construction
Combining a series of Extra-Low Dispersion (ELD) lens elements with Special Low Dispersion Glass (SLD) and “F” Low Dispersion (FLD) elements grant the lens ultra-high resolution resolving capabilities perfect for high resolution cameras like the Canon 5DS or Canon 5D Mark IV. The lens consists of 14 lens elements in total and these are arranged in 12 groups.
Minimised Flare and Ghosting
The sophisticated glass element arrangement is enhanced with a Super Multi-Layer Coating to reduce flaring and ghosting to ensure optimum optical performance. The coating helps you to capture sharp images with high-contrast in a range of situations even in strongly backlight conditions like when shooting into the sun.
Hyper Sonic Autofocus
With 1.3 times more torque in its autofocus motor than previous models the Sigma 85mm f1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Sony E has a revised Hyper Sonic Autofocus drive motor that offers exceptional stable performance, at all speeds. The lens has a new software algorithm to drive the autofocus and the lens can be manually focused at any time just by simply rotating the focus ring, without the need to touch the focus mode switch.
