Is the New Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG DN Art Lens Even Better Than the Original?

Home Gear

The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art was one of the most hotly anticipated lenses in recent years, and now, we have an updated version specifically for mirrorless cameras that is both smaller and with lots of improvements. This great video review shows what you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this great video review takes a look at the new Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG DN Art lens. Available for Sony E and Leica L mounts, the new version features the following specs: 

  • Five Special Low Dispersion elements for reduced chromatic aberrations and improved clarity and color accuracy
  • One aspherical element and four high refractive index glass elements for reduced distortion and increased sharpness
  • Super Multi-Layer Coating for reduced flares and increased contrast
  • AF stepping motor
  • Declickable aperture for video work
  • Rounded 11-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • Weather-resistant construction with brass bayonet for increased durability in a variety of shooting scenarios

Altogether, the new version looks like a fantastic update to its wildly popular predecessor and one that should make a great alternative compared to more expensive first-party options for everyone from portrait to wedding shooters. Check out the video above for Frost’s full thoughts.
