Lab Test Results: Sigma 135mm f/1.8 HSM DG ART


(sample images will follow)

Excellent as always, from field test you will tell us about focus accuracy.

With MFT you were inspired and took some really good pictures, looking forward to see how this lens has will inspire you for photography.
Well, 135mm is not my thing but let's see what I can produce.


Fortunately Sydney will be helping me a little with this ...

Effin' knockout.

That was fast 😀
Triple 5, not many candidates made that so far. I'm impressed by how impressed you are  Big Grin


On one sentence in the conclusion I have difficulties to comprehend:


"However, we've rarely seen lenses that can [...?] and they were not as fast anyway."


Now I'm looking forward for pictures out of Dr. Baker's rotary disco  ^_^

Thx, JoJu. Seems as if I've the habit that my thoughts are getting too much ahead of my writing speed ...  Rolleyes

Me too. Perhaps I didn't get some latent irony, but I understood Klaus' "preview comments" as a sort of "I thought it was better". So far the only defect seems to be cat's eyes (which aren't necessarily a defect according to some tastes...).

Plus some legacy Nikkor lenses.
Well, if it has a extreme corner resolution at f/4 a lot of other lenses don't even have in center...


When I tried the 85 and 135 Art (in this order) I was quite surprised about better subjectively balance of the 135. It was a real pleasure mot only to shoot with, I eben got some manually focused shots right. To my own surprise... After all, I was biased against "boring" 135mm FL, but for this lens I'm tempted to make an exception.

MTF graphs seem ridiculously good.
