Sigma 85/1.4 Art comparison with Canon 85/1.2 L II

As an astrophotographer I produced a short vignetting and corner sharpness comparison between the new Sigma 85/1.4 Art (SA) with the Canon 85/1.2 L II (C). In short the SA has maybe a little bit more vignetting BUT a much much better corner-sharpness (all pics are uncorrected and unsharpened and exposed to the same level (e.g. 1.4/4s/ISO800) under urban sky to show the vignetting! camera was a eos 5d III)

Upper: C1.4, C2.0, C2.8; lower: SA1.4, SA2.0, SA2.8

C 1.4: extreme corners
