Sigma 85/1.4 on 5DmkII

Thank you for making me miss my sigma 85:(

Great shot. Do you have a problem with inconsistent sharpness?

Hi Joey. I've only just got the Sigma but a side-by-side trest with my 85/1.2 (which I have always struggled with) suggests that the Sigma didn't hit focus as reliably. Inconsistency with both lenses seems to depend on the focus distance - the further away the subject, the more likely and the larger are the errors. But I suspect user-error might be a big factor. When they do hit focus though, both these lenses are capable of stunning shots. I've always liked a fast 85mm lens, from my early days shooting Minolta through the Canon and Sigma ranges. That focal length just suits my style perfectly.
