New Sigma 85mm f1.4 EX DG HSM (CMNPS)

The third of the five new Sigma lenses has a popular spec - 85mm f1.4, but unlike the Samyang/Sakar/Vivitar/etc that has been making the e-rounds, this one of course has the modern day luxury of autofocus. The formal name is Sigma 85mm f1.4 EX DG HSM.

It is available on all five traditional SLR mounts, which is a new trend for Sigma - it appears they are now less reticent to provide lenses for the Alpha and K-mounts.

This is a 35mm full frame lens, so when mounted on the more common APS-C DSLRs, you will get roughly 127mm eq (1.5x). As with most Sigma announcements, prices and availability are harder to find than the Higgs boson :)
