Until about a month ago, the 135GM was at the very top of my list of "wow" lenses. The thing is just so sharp... That was until the Sigma 85mm DN made it's way into our hands. Now it's the Sigma 85mm that sits very comfortably at the top of my wow list. It's the sharpest lens I've ever seen, seeming to edge-out even the 135GM in most real-world results. Though it's very close, the Sigma just seems to resolve more fine details, like texture and pours on faces. Shooting wide-open already basically maxes-out any Sony sensor with both lenses. The AF is perfect; swift, silent, and accurate. To be honest, both of these lenses are absolutely in a class of their own in all aspects, but it's the size, weight, and cost that make the Sigma an absolute superhero.
