Sigma's Art series of lenses has been a runaway hit, with the line continuing to expand to both new focal lengths and new mounts. One of the newest in the lineup is the 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art, and it has been lauded for being incredibly sharp even at its maximum aperture. Is it the right lens for you? This great video review will answer that question.
Coming to you from our friends over at SLR Lounge, this awesome video review takes a look at the Sigma 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens. The 105mm f/1.4 Art definitely represents Sigma's philosophy of tossing aside any concerns of portability in favor of high optical quality, and if you can handle the bulk, it really is a spectacular piece of glass at a very good price, especially when you consider it among its competitors. I have had mine for about a year now, and it has very quickly become my favorite portrait lens. Beyond the snappy and accurate autofocus combined with spectacular image quality, I really appreciate the balance the 105mm focal length offers between the more traditional 85mm and 135mm portrait lengths. It gives a hint more compression than the 85mm without the working distance issues of a 135mm lens. If you're looking for a premium portrait lens, I definitely recommend it. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
