As usual, my test subject for a new lens, is the one and only Samson the Great. I caught him sun bathing in morning window light. All shots were with the Nikon D800 body and the fantastic Sigma 135mm f/1.8 Art lens.

Hi Scott!

Great to see you. I thought the art lenses were all cropped frame. The images have really nice bokeh.

Nope, they're full frame lenses. And they're fantastic! Actually, most of my lenses are now either Sigma Art or Sigma Sports lenses. They've really upped their game in the past few years.

Thanks, Scott. That is exciting. LOL, I have not purchased a new lens since my Sigma 120-300 F2.8, and I am excited about a few new offerings - when the cash is available. For example, I am really looking hard at the 45mm TS. Maybe I can get a 'new used' for less too...as the old lenses were also excellent.

Anyway, back to Sigma, I only have the 120-300 f2.8, and outside of the fact that the focus motor has died twice in 7 years, it is a great piece of glass.

If your 120-300 is 7 years old, it's more than likely the version before the Sports version, right? While the optical formula is similar, the build quality and QA inspection process are vastly improved. I absolutely love both my Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 Sport and my Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.5 Sport. And while it may sound like it, I'm not actually sponsored by Sigma. wink
