Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Tested on EOS 1Ds III, 7D II

As promised yesterday, image quality results from the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III and Canon EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Review page. This addition makes many more direct comparisons available. I’ll get you started.
Sigma’s previous 85mm f/1.4 was a good performer, but the Art model takes the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 lens comparison.
Zeiss also has a pair of excellent 85mm lenses. In the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art Lens vs. Zeiss Milvus 85mm f/1.4 lens comparison, the Sigma has the advantage. Even the venerable Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 is strongly challenged by the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art Lens.
At a 2/3 stop wider aperture, the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art Lens is sharper than the Tamron 85mm f/1.8 VC lens. The Sigma of course gives up image stabilization in this comparison.
Put one of these lenses in your kit: B&H has this lens in stock (Nikon) and “coming soon” (Canon mount available for preorder).
Adorama only has the Sigma mount lens in stock, but at this moment is offering a free Sigma Dock with preorders.
