Does anyone know if a good side-by-side comparison has been done between this lens and the new Canon 85mm f1.2L II ?  If so, where can I find it?
These days, I sometimes expect to see Rod Serling step out of the shadows and point to a signpost up ahead!

Different lenses, but you can't go wrong with either actually.
It's not a scientific comparison or chart shooting, but more based on real life - nothing will give you the 1.2 look except of an f/1.2 lens :)  But the Sigma is amazing nevertheless. The AF is faster, it's weather resistant (the 1.2 loves to get some nice dust!), and the sharpness wide open is outstanding. @ f/2.8 I don't see much difference in sharpness though. If you have budget and like 85mm focal length - get both.

Sigma 85 F1.4 Art in controlled light situation. dimly lit room with a single Godox AD600BM into 120cm Octa box and 1x1.5m white reflector to the left of the talent all in a hurry. Lens focussed swiftly and consistently for me.

As an astrophotographer I produced a short vignetting and corner sharpness comparison (1.4-2.8) between the new Sigma 85/1.4 Art (S) with the Canon 85/1.2 L II (C). In short the S has maybe a little bit more vignetting BUT a much much better corner-sharpness (all pics are uncorrected and unsharpened and exposed to the same level (e.g. 1.4/4s/ISO800) under urban sky to show the vignetting! camera was a eos 5d III)

Pretty good comparison: http://lenswork.tistory.com/entry/Sigma-85mm-f14-ART-vs-Canon-EF-85mm-f12Resolution-and-Bokeh.

nubu: ^ seems like the Art would be a better choice for you?

Great portrait Alex!
