I’ve owned this lens for just over a year now and thought I’d write a short review which you can find here (external link).

TLDR: This is a great lens that offers something unique that most other 85mm primes don’t in the form of a very short minimum focusing distance. It offers great image quality with average autofocus in a decent sized package.

When looking at native RF options it’s great value but once 3rd party lenses like the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DN Art comes to RF mount then it may lose a lot do it’s appeal.

Here are a few images taken with the lens.


Sony Alpha A7 Mark IV - Sony FE PZ 16-35mm f/4 G - Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 GM - Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DN Art
FujiFilm X-S10 - Fujifilm XF 33mm f/1.4 R LM WR - Sigma 56mm f/1.4
