Don’t Buy Canon or Nikon’s 85mm Portrait Lens. Buy Sigma’s Sharper, Cheaper Version Instead

Sigma’s 85mm f/1.4 is sharper and cheaper than Canon and Nikon’s options. Today, you can save even more money by picking one up for $200 off.


If you’re looking to take your portrait photography to the next level, look no further than Sigma’s 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM ART lens. It’s sharper than Canon’s L series 85mm, sharper than Nikon’s 85mm f/1.4G and is significantly cheaper than both — particularly today when you can pick one up for $200 off. Whether you’re shooting in a studio or on location, the 85mm captures enough of the frame to set your subject in context with the background, without leaving a bunch of dead space at the edges of the frame. It’s long enough that you don’t have to get uncomfortably close to your subject for a headshot, but wide enough that you don’t have to stand in the next room for a shot with perspective.
