This lens has been designed to work with mirrorless cameras in the Panasonic/Leica/Sigma L Mount and Sony E Mount.

Large Diameter Aperture
The large wide-open aperture of f1.4 creates rich bokeh effects for gorgeous images. Combined with the 85mm focal length, the 1.4 aperture will render the background in a soft tone. Your subjects will stand out beautifully with foreground to background separation.
The unparalleled optical performance provides excellent quality at all apertures, even at the wide aperture of f1.4. Both professionals and advanced amateurs and photo enthusiasts will be amazed by the quality of the photos that come from this lens.
The 11-blade rounded diaphragm provides an attractive blur in out of focus areas at all of the wider apertures.
Fast & Consistent Autofocus
The high speed AF system uses a stepping motor which has been optimised to work with both phase detection Autofocus and Contrast Autofocus. This makes for a smooth and consistent shooting experience, made possible when using a mirrorless camera ,and also enables the physical size of the lens to be smaller, with a smaller focus element designed to better suit the motor. This design works wonderfully with face and eye detection AF on the mirrorless camera bodies.
Compact & Lightweight
In addition to the smaller focus lens element that contributes to the smaller form factor, the Sigma Art 85mm f1.4 DG DN lens has also been designed specifically to suit mirrorless cameras. The smaller and more compact form factor has been created without compromise on quality with the lens being packed with a whole host of functionality including dust and splash proofing.
The high quality and compact size defies convention, coming in at just 630g and 9.4cm in length. The standard filter thread size of 77mm ensures a wide compatibility of filters and attachments.
