Loving Sigma 85mm 1.4 on my a77
Why did I wait so long to get this lens....
Just fooling around with it and enjoying what Kai from DigitalRev TV would call the 'bokeliciousness'. My copy seems plenty sharp at f1.4. I know ultra-narrow depth of field shots are not everyone's cup of tea, especially when it comes to portraits, but hey, I just got the lens and you have to try it, right?
Click on 'original size' under each image to see more clearly what this bad boy is like at f1.4
Anyway, first some engineering porn...
and then the obligatory 'try it out on any willing family member' shots
