Having gone from a cropped sensor to 5D IV full frame I wish to replace my trusty 50mm 1.4 with an 85mm 1.4. Primary usage will remain studio, with secondary usage theatrical photography -
the same as before.
The choice has come down to the Sigma ART and the new Canon equivalent. With both having superb optical performance, my natural preference is the Canon - both for future-proofing and to gain 4 stop image stabilisation.
My challenge is the price; I can buy the Sigma from a grey market source that I trust for £750 whereas I can only find the Canon for £1,300+. The £550+ difference is an awful lot for the two additional benefits I seek and I cannot justify it.
Comments, please from anyone with experience of both or either lens? Sigma today or hold out until the Canon reaches reputable grey market sources and dips below £1,000 - the maximum price I am prepared to pay?
