    Cons: A quite big and heavy lens. No image stabilization. Rather \"cool\" colors - one has to like this.

    Pros: Very sharp. Stunning image Quality right from f1.8 away. Minimum focus distance of only 0.8m. Fast and (a new Sigma experience) reliable AF on my Nikon D810. Very pleasant, smooth and neutral out of focus areas.

    Summary: Without a doubt an excellent lens, but nearly all modern portrait lenses in the 85-135mm range are sharp nowadays. So you should better check out whether you like the way it renders. A 135mm needs space if you want to do more than headshots and at least a 1/250s, so this one should better be your second or third portrait lens (after a 85 and a 70-200 or so). The Zeiss 135 has the best colors of the bunch (but is manual and expensive), the Samyang 135 is nearly as sharp and cheaper (but manual as well and has the poorer build). The new Nikon 105 f1.4 has maybe the best \"look\" (but is a bit too expensive).
