Sigma 85mm f1.4 DG DN Art Lens First Impressions L Mount

Sigma 85mm f1.4 DG DN Art Lens First Impressions L Mount:

Sigma recently released the 85mm f1.4 DG DN Art lens but unlike their previous version, this one is designed specifically for mirrorless cameras.  In other words, it’s more manageable in terms of ergonomics and size.  I’ve been excited to give this lens a thorough test ever since I heard about it, and I was fortunate enough to get a loaner to try with my Leica SL2.  Here are my first impressions of it.

New Leica SL2 and Lens Bundles With Big Savings

New Leica SL2 and Lens Bundles With Big Savings:

As some of you know, my main camera is the Leica SL2, and I love it.  If you go to my Instagram, you’ll see that nearly all the photos there have been shot with my SL2 along with the Summilux-SL 50mm ASPH.  Well, there are two new bundles that help quite a bit in the savings department.  To top it off, whether or not you purchase the SL2 as a bundle or body only, you can get a free Oberwerth Boulevard bag.  Both bundles include two of my favorite lenses:

Leica SL2 and Summilux-SL 50mm f1.4 ASPH Bundle ($1095 savings)

Leica SL2 and Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90mm f2.8-4 ASPH Bundle ($695 savings)

The Lux is my favorite lens 50mm, and if you look through my Instagram, practically all my images have been shot with just this one lens.  The 24-90mm is my favorite zoom in this range.  I originally bought it with my SL as something temporary until the native primes were released but the quality from the zoom is so good, I ended up keeping it.  It’s a lens I still have to write a review for but you can find my Lux review here.

My site is still being updated internally but in the mean time, I have another Sigma lens that I’ve been testing lately that I want to talk about: The 16mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens for L mount.  There are currently three L mount APS-C lenses that I have in my hands, which I am reviewing with the Leica CL.  I wrote up a first impressions for the 56mm f1.4, which you can find here, and the last one I have is the 30mm f1.4, which I’ll post about shortly.  So, getting back to the 16mm f1.4, here are my first impressions of it.
