The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art is the perfect full-frame portrait lens for individuals seeking the absolute best image quality. The Sigma 85mm Art utilises a complex lens construction of 14 lens elements in 12 groups with special elements and coatings to produce a lens that can capture crisp details on 50MP and higher sensors.
A fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 and telephoto focal length of 85mm makes the lens the ideal portrait lens as the focal length enables you to capture close-up's without getting uncomfortably close, while the fast maximum aperture enables you to blur your background.
This lens model features a full-frame EF mount to make it compatible with Canon's full-frame and cropped sensor DSLR cameras.
f/1.4 Maximum aperture, prime 85mm focal length, full-frame, circular 9-blade diaphragm. All these properties creates fantastic compression and bokeh
Want to have that professional close-up shot where the subject is tack sharp and the background is completely blown out with a smooth blur, and maybe even with some circular light? Then a fixed/prime telephoto lens with a fast circular bladed aperture is what you need. With a telephoto 85mm focal length, wide-open f/1.4 aperture, and circular 9-blade diaphragm, the Sigma 85mm Art will most certainly not just deliver, but amaze.
Put on the included lens hood, shoot at f/1.4 and forget about lens artifacts ruining your image

Two lens elements made of SLD (Special Low Dispersion Glass), one element with a high rate of anomalous partial dispersion and a high index of refraction, and super multi-layer coatings work together to greatly reduce any unwanted aberrations, flares, ghosting, and other unwanted artifacts.
Ready for 50+ megapixel sensors
With a complex lens construction and high quality optics the Sigma 85mm Art is future proof and ready for increased megapixel sensor DSLR's.
Newly designed HSM Autofocus motor
The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art incorporates a newly designed Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) that offers 1.3 times the torque of its predecessor with even beter AF algorithms. The autofocus motor also accepts manual focus overrides-even during continuous AF.
