Anyone excited about the new Sigma 105mm f1.4 ?

I have to admit that the Nikon 105mm f1.4 made me jealous of Nikon users, but this lens makes me interested in Sigma again. But...1.6kg!
Yikes!

It’s a nice focal length on full frame.

The provided samples are kind of boring. But if Sigma foes everything right I might get rid of both my 85L and 135L. Maybe...

Cool lens but not light for all the "it's too heavy" bunch. I'll pass.....Siggy should make their current crop of "wow factor" lenses with bullet-proof, accurate AF before spending more f&d dollars on new stuff. Just sayin.....

Nope. Not 1 bit

I have the 85 art and Love it
I have a 135L and love it

This is Sigmas attempt to convince everyone they need a 105 like Nikon has. The people I know that have Nikons 105 love it.

Cant have them all- well you can but for business owners..Whats the point

Um... nikon version is MUCH lighter though. This thing comes with a stupid silly tripod mount...

completely stupid. Should of looked like the 85A. I don't care about the weight. I shoot the 200/2 like most people shoot a 35. But a tripod mount????

idiots.

Funny how we are all different.

The one thing that really appealed to me with the new Sigma was the built-in tripod collar and foot.

When I use small lenses like my 24-105 and my 50-200L, lenses that have no tripod collar and foot, it is really frustrating to use them on a tripod.

I hate having to mount the camera to the tripod head instead of being able to mount the lens directly to the head. . It is very awkward and causes massive clearance and ergonomic problems when used with my Wimberley (which is almost always on my tripod because I mostly use huge telephoto lenses, and I am not going to carry two heads on my person and switch every time I switch from a huge lens to a regular one).

In order to use smaller lenses on my Wimberley tripod head I have to use a very long speed plate - 9 inches. . This is necessary in order to offset the clearance problems caused by having to mount the camera to the head.

If I could mount the lens directly to the head, then there would be no clearance problems and no need to have a 9 inch long speed plate attached to my camera. . The collar and ring on the new Sigma would completely solve this problem for me.

I like it!

"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I guess it would be easier to use a shoulder strap w/ that 105 than it is w/ the 85A and the strap mounted to camera.

hmm... Think about the A7 mounted to the 105 you would have a balanced point to anchor

ok I want it now  :p

interesting,

I was thinking it would be similar to the 85mm and the 135mm ART

Hope Canon release a 105mm f/1,4L IS USM....
Maybe with Macro....  :p

I like it :-)
I often use heavy big lenses 1 to 6kg of weight and love the unique images they sometimes give.

But I am not planning to buy it. Don´t like autofocus lenses much, and I have got a 100mm f/1.5 lense with much more character and even usable on medium format. Have to adapt it, and test it. It is for sure inferior to the Sigma from MTF, but I do not care much about this.
