The current Sigma 85 f1.4 continually amazes me, it is tack sharp wide open, and jaw dropping stopped down to 2.8. I don't see that they could improve much on the sharpness, I guess it does have minor CA (less than Canon's seemingly) so I am surprised they are redoing it. Perhaps it is just to bring it into USB configuration?
I don't feel the need to sell mine to upgrade, I guess those without an 85 will be interested though.
I totally agree. The current 85mm is very sharp wide open so I wonder what a tweaked and more expensive version will do. I don't see the need for current owners to upgrade.
