Sigma 85mm f/1.4
Aug 12, 2009

Canon Rumors mentioned a rumored new lens from Sigma. http://64.13.226.237/2009/08/sigma-85-f1-4-hsm-cr1/

I was wondering what others thought about the idea of this rumored lens.

Ever since Sigma released the 50mm f/1.4 I had a deep interest in that lens, then decided that 50mm was a little short for most of what I want to do but 85mm would be better. Canon has the 1.2 which is way out of my price range at the moment, the 1.8 that I have used once and was not that impressed with. There was recently an offbrand manual focus manual aperture 85mm f/1.4 released under the name of several different brands that appears to be a pretty good performer. And at a great price, $350-$450

The 50mm f/1.4 seems to be a great lens if you can look past the focus issues, I wonder how well of an 85mm lens Sigma could make. Every other Sigma lens I have own/owned has been a pretty good performer.

I hope this rumor proves true personally.
