Anyone using the Sigma 85/1.4 with a 5DIII?
Nov 7, 2012

If so, how do you find the focus accuracy/consistency? I've found the 5DIII to be remarkably better in both respects than my 7D and was wondering how well (or badly) the Sigma works with this body.

I can get the 85/1.4 locally for less than I can buy it from B&H (which is both rare and somewhat astounding living in Australia), however our returns policies are rather stone-age so I'd like to know what I'm getting into before taking the plunge (it would have to be actually defective to get an exchange and I don't want the hassle if that's what I'm potentially looking at...)

The 85L is way out of my price range for the time being as this is likely to be a lens that would not see a huge amount of use, hence my interest in the Sigma.

TIA,

Scott
