Sigma 85 f/1.4 for D800?
Jun 15, 2012

I'm seriously thinking about buying this lens for my D800 for interiors and nightlife.

I already have a nice set of lenses, including Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VRII and think the step to f/1.8 lense isn't enough to justify $$$. So, I'm thinking more about f/1.4 lenses (I have an excellent Sigma 50 mm f/1.4 sample) such as 85 and 24 but the Nikon ones are too expensive for their planned usage while Sigma 85 is considered on par if not better. For the 24 mm I'll wait for an improved Samyang model or a new Sigma (I have the 14 f/2.8 Samyang and it is slightly better than Nikon 14-24).

So, for those who have the Sigma 85 f/1.4 on D800, how do you like it? Have you had the sometimes reported diminution of AF precision over time?

Thanks,

Nikon D800
