The photography world is (im)patiently waiting for Sigma to release the 85mm f/1.4 Art series, but it looks like Tamron could beat them to it with an 85mm f/1.4 of their own, along with the added bonus of vibration control. A patent for such an optical formula from Tamron has appeared.

Patent Publication No. 2016-12082 (Google Translated)

  • Published 2016.1.21
  • Filing date 2014.6.30
  • f = 87.5187
  • Fno = 1.4578
  • ω = 13.8585 °

We haven’t heard anything about a 85mm f/1.4 Art series lens being announced by Sigma any time soon. We think such a lens would be perfect for introduction at Photokina in September 2016.
