Is purchasing this lens worth it if I can sell and consolidate both Sigma 85 1.4 Art & Sigma 135 1.8?

For video, absolutely worth it. Strictly for stills, probably not necessary.

I have made up my mind. Canon 85 L 1.4 over the Sigma 85 Art.

Does anyone have any problems with this lens not catching autofocus? It will hunt and struggle and then never catch focus. I usually have to turn off my camera and when I turn it on again it usually works.

I'm updating my firmware on my 5Ds R, but I have no idea if it's related to that. Anyone else have similar issues?

I wish I had a 5Dsr to test it on but I'm stuck with a 1Dx2 for a while now.

All I can say is that my 7D2 and 1dx2 both nail focus every time. That said, both cameras work best with the center spot af set. I found it would wander to other focus points using area af.

Yes, she is undergoing treatment for breast cancer. She's finished chemo and about half way through radiation. Prayers and best wishes for you and your wife.

A while back I regretably sold my 50L with the intent to move to a 35/85 combo. The Air Force decided to throw a PCS in out of nowhere, which delayed following through with the master plan. Well, this week the plan finally came to fruition and I now have a 35L II and 85 L IS. I still need to run it through Focal for microadjustment, but so far I’m pretty impressed!!!

Both images SOOC and posted from my iPhone via WiFI transfer.
