A few years back I had heard about the Sigma Art lenses from my buddy Tom Harmon and when he started speaking really highly of the lens he had just got, I began to have some faith in them. After that, a lot of my photography buddy's and other sources started raving about the Sigma Art lenses and now here they are for the Sony E mount.
When I switched from Nikon to Sony, I knew what I was in for. Sony lenses are definitely pricier than most and there aren't anywhere near as many options as Canon or Nikon. The main reason I switched was because I am doing a lot more video work and the capabilities and color profiles you get from a Sony a7R III outweigh the capabilities of something like the Nikon D850 (at least for what I am using it for). I've had my Sony for a few months now and I love everything about it but buying more lenses. I am always looking around to make sure any lens I buy will be worth it for me in the long run and just as I was looking into the Sony 85mm f/1.4, the Sigma line for E mount was released. This opened my eyes to a lot more options for lenses.
Above is a video of the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 on a Sony a7R III in low light. From a first glance, I am fairly impressed with the low light performance and autofocus speed. If this line is able to focus quickly and produce a sharp image at night, I can only imagine what they can do in good light. Looks like the decision will lie between Sony lenses or Sigma lenses but I am really looking forward to seeing more about this lineup soon. So to anybody out there using Sony E-mount, check out B&H Photo to see Sigma's new lenses.
