Full or crop frame digital cameras Fast aperture lens, perfect for portraiture A great lens for the wedding photographer

When you need a medium-telephoto standard lens for everything from portraiture to sports, the fast Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM Lens for Nikon Digital SLRs is a great solution. This large aperture beauty is designed with an SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element and a glass mold element which yield first-class, sharp image captures with high contrast.

The 85mm f/1.4 has Sigma's HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) which provides fast, accurate and quiet autofocusing. The exterior of this lens is EX-finished which translates to a superior build and optical quality, enhanced handling and appearance. It comes with a petal-type hood to block out extraneous light. A dedicated hood adapter for cameras with an APS-C size image sensor is also included to expand the length of the hood for blocking out extraneous light more effectively.

This fast f/1.4 lens is great for capturing fast moving images, allowing you to use faster shutter speeds, and is what you want when shooting under low lighting conditions. This highly efficient lens has a nine blade circular diaphragm for creating pleasant out-of-focus highlights (bokeh) which is a major asset to portrait and wedding photographers.

Note: This lens is designed for use with full frame digital cameras. May also be used with smaller APS-c size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 127.5mm with most cameras.

Note: Nikon mount lenses do not have an aperture ring.

Note! If the camera body does not support HSM, autofocus will not be available.

Warranty - 1 year America Warranty + 3 year USA extended warranty on manufacturing and workmanship for a total of 4 years of coverage from date of purchase.

4 out of 5 stars   nice lens

Review submitted for Sigma 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM Lens for Nikon AF (SG85F14NA)
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Consistent Output, Durable, Strong Construction, Rugged
Cons: Slow Focus
Other Comments: I bought the lens primarily for stage productions and concerts where lighting is poor. It's fine if the distances are perfect, but I usually can't change my position to improve framing. Sometimes I prefer to change to a slower zoom lens and boost the ISO into the stratosphere where I have to put up with more noise in my images. Focus is slow in low light, so it's not practical for me to use shooting action. I plan to try using manual focus next time to see if that helps.

Review submitted for Sigma 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM Lens for Nikon AF (SG85F14NA)
Pros: Nice Bokeh, Focus is precise rapid, Extremely sharp lens
Cons: Color differs from Nikkor, Not weather sealed
Other Comments: Sharp lens, esp in the center. I was concerned about focus, however, this lens focuses rapidly and precisely on D700. Great lens for portraiture, with narrow depth of field. Useful in low-light situations.
