The long-awaited Sigma 85mm 1.4 DG HSM Art was announced at Photokina in September 2016. This highly anticipated lens is the most requested Art lens to date and we are pleased to announce it is now shipping in both Canon and Nikon mounts!
Worldwide demand is very high for this newly redesigned fast prime, and based on the hands-on feedback from fans at PhotoPlus, where it made its US show debut just a few weeks back; our fans are going to be very pleased with the sharpness and total performance this portrait lens delivers!
To celebrate the release of this outstanding optic, we are hosting dealer Demo Days from coast to coast in November and December, where fans will be able to check out the new 85mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art lens as well as the 12-24mm F4 DG HSM | Art ultrawide zoom lens!
