No, sorry, I don't have this lens, but I have heard good things about it.

If it's anywhere as good, or even better, then I would think it's a great lens to go for.

Keep the fun real.

Thanks for your advice. Here is the review link :


At high ISO and 100% crop, Sigma 85 is better than Nikon 85G, from f/1.4 to f/2, you could see some purple color on 85G, and the sharpness is not as good as Sigma 85 either. ( move the cursor on the arrow on top of the image )

And at f/2.8, the sharpness of Sigma 85 is better than 85G. Also, on photozone, Sigma 85 has better resolution than 85G from f/1.4 to f/4 (at f/4, 85G is a little bit better ). Of course, from f/4, 85G is better than Sigma, but I think most of people care much more from f/1.4 to f/4, and that's why people buy "fast" lenses.
