    Cons: Heavy and awkward. Does not take distance rings or Sigma 1.4 converter. Bokeh is, for my taste, too clean.the diameter is so big, compared to the Nikon 135/2 that you can focus it as quickly. Also, I found dust in mine which doesn\'t speak for the sealing.

    Pros: Very sharp, silent and fast.

    Summary: Sold mine after only 6 months. I rather use my 150/ 2.8 Macro for portraits or the 85 1.4 OLD Sigma, which is small, as fast and nicer bokeh.

    Cons: Not that accurate autofocus when tracking someting moving fast.

    Pros: Outstanding contrast and sharpness from f/1.8 from centre to corner. Smooth bokeh at the background. Quiet and (most of the time) accurate autofocus. Not that expensive.

    Summary: An excellent lens for portrait and it works well on my Sony α7R3.

    Cons: None, except the 135 doesn\'t take Sigma TCs. Stabilization would be welcome when used on cropped sensor cameras.

    Pros: Lovely. Works with all my cameras!

    Summary: I got this a couple of months before pensioning, and I must say this lens is a stunner. Bokeh, sharpness, manual focus (should you feel the need) just so sweet, in every way. I use mine mostly as a portrait lens on my DX and FX, and as a short telephoto lens on my Nikon 1 cameras (crop factor 2.7). Totally delightful lens and I don\'t find that it renders a bit cool, like the other reviewer.

    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).
