Sigma 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM Lens Available in US

The new Sigma 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM lens is now available in the US at an MSRP of $1400, with street pricing for as low as $900.

The new fast lens is optimized for full frame sensors like those in the Nikon D3s or Canon EOS 5D. On APS-C cameras it will give a fixed focal length of 127mm for the likes of Nikon D90 or D300s, and 136mm for Canon DSLRs like the EOS 550D and 60D. The built-in HSM features means it can autofocus with entry level cameras from the old Nikon D40 series to the latest D5000 or D7000 DSLRs.

“This lens is an excellent addition to our prime lens line-up and is a great performer for a variety of photographers. For the sports or photojournalist photographer, the Hyper Sonic Motor will keep up with fast-paced action sequences; the 1.4 maximum aperture provides the ability to work at high shutter speeds under low existing light conditions,” said Mark Amir-Hamzeh, general manager of Sigma Corporation of America. ‘That same high-speed aperture is great for a portrait photographer who is looking to isolate details in their subject, with a pleasant, out-of-focus background. One-touch, full-time manual focus is perfect for the critical, professional photographer.”
