Hi all , I am looking for a good 80-100mm ish lens for portraits.

Is the 85 GM a good option and would you still buy it now?

To be used on a1 and A7R4


Of the 3 85/1.4's on the mount, I've owned the two that aren't the GM.

I sorta miss my Samyang because when it hit, it really really hit, but it just had so many problems.   I've got a great picture of a sunset where the sun literally dripped down through the picture and it's everything.

The Sigma OTOH is a great lens that's tack-sharp with actually working AF.  It's also smaller than the GM for less money.
