GFX + Sigma Art 85f1.4
5

Last weekend I tried the Sigma Art 85f1.4 via Steels adapter on my GFX 50s at a children's birthday. I tested various AF options like S-AF and C-AF with single point or zone, mostly with face (sometimes eye) detection. All options are a kind of 'slow' on that camera which is demanding with kids. But I was very positively surprised that when the camera with the adapter catched focus the focus accuracy was generally very good, mostly perfect, sometimes slight back focus.

I used nearly exclusively f1.4 ... f2, enclosed a few samples with 100% crops. No cropping, no vignetting compensation applied in ACR, only standard sharpening. The lens is very sharp and has very little LOCA which is great for portraits.

The lens also works great against light sources.

Btw., the last two pics were so dark in the EVF and underexposed that I saw nothing, just trusted the AF. Auto focus worked well and the GFX 50 files have so much DR, allow great shadow recovery.

Nice pictures. Sigma should make GF lenses.
