Sigma 135 1.8 ART + D850
7

So far, so good....

DOF at 1.8 at closer range is insanely thin, probably much like the 70-200 2.8 FL wide open at 200mm. Optically this lens is great. The lack of VR will absolutely be a problem for some, so consider that prior to buying. Takes really careful technique to nail focus when it's so shallow. Bokeh is beautiful. Sharpness is on par with my (no joke) Tamron 90 Macro and the build feels above a Nikon, but below a Zeiss. It's a heavy lens.

The flowers are crops...the smaller flower is a fairly extreme crop.
