Sigma’s ART series lenses offer excellent quality at affordable prices – great values when compared to the Canon and Nikon pro level lenses.  Adding to their sweet prime line up of 35mm and 50mm is now the 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens for Canon EF, Nikon F and Sigma SA mounts!screenshot-2016-09-19-11-54-25

Availability Late October – Preorder from B&H Photo $1,199.00

The Canon 85mm f/1.2 L lens cost $1,899 and Scott recently reviewed the Tamron 85mm f/1.8 for $749.00 (see his review here)
Sigma is saying  – Sigma looked to create a peak portrait prime with the 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens, and they delivered an optic with high performance, a large f/1.4 aperture, and a variety of technologies. Available here with a Canon EF mount, this lens offers a super-fast f/1.4 aperture that is great for getting images with an exceptionally shallow depth of field and smooth bokeh. It also uses two FLD elements and one anomalous partial dispersion/high-refractive index element that minimize aberrations and ensures a crisp, clear image. A Super Multi-Layer coating helps by suppressing flare and ghosting.

 #bison #snowface ~  Captured with the #Sony #a7rII and Canon 100-400 and heavily cropped because I follow the #YellowstonePledge :)
 In Yellowstone National Park the roads are paved with snow and go straight for miles. Yesterday was sweet, today was the sweetest! Captured here on our way to Hayden Valley - a #dreamyplace like no other. #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 24-105 lens
 Yesterday ended as epically as it began (see my earlier post?) As we made our way out of the park the setting sun lit up this line of trees and steam from geothermal activity - a single line of animal tracks lead the way to this scene. #iloveyellowstonenp #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 70-200 ️‍️ EXIF: Exactly the same as the morning shot posted earlier.
