Would there be a market for a Sigma/Tamron 85mm f/1.8?
3 weeks ago

The Nikkor AF-S 85mm f/1.8 is a fine lens, like its AF-D older sibling. Sigma have given us the very good 85mm f/1.4. I was wondering, would there be a market for a Sigma (or third party in general) cheaper portrait lens?

The Nikkor AF-S 85mm f/1.8 is somewhere south of $500. If Sigma made a comparable lens for about $400, I think it'd be a serious competitor.

Opinions?
