Competing in the ring of ultimate portrait primes, Sigma 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM | Art is up against pro-grade favourites, including the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM, Nikon AF-S 105mm f/1.4E ED and Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 G Master. The Sigma overshadows them all, if only in physical size and weight: it’s heavier than most 70-200mm f/2.8 telephoto zooms.

 

The optical design is based on 17 elements, laid out in 12 groups. These include three top-performance FLD (Fluorite-grade Low Dispersion) elements, two SLD (Special Low Dispersion) elements, and one aspherical element. Multi-layer coatings are applied and a fluorine coating is added to the front element, to repel moisture and fingerprints. Unlike many of Sigma’s older Art lenses, this one has weather seals, including a rubber gasket on the mounting plate.

As well as concentrating on sharpness and contrast, in conjunction with smooth bokeh, the optical design aims to minimise sagittal coma and astigmatism across the entire frame, so that points of light are reproduced naturally with, as far as possible, a circular shape. The well-rounded nine-blade diaphragm helps to retain this, and to maximise the overall quality of bokeh.
