It appears Sigma build another engineering masterpiece with the Sigma 135mm f/1.8 Art.

Imaging Resource posted a full technical review and a real world sample gallery. They are definitely enthusiastic about this lens, calling the Sigma an “incredible lens” and saying “this is one of the sharpest, if not *the* sharpest, lens [they have] ever tested”. From the conclusion:

The Sigma 135mm ƒ/1.8 DG HSM “Art” is one of the sharpest lenses we’ve ever tested. It’s not an inexpensive lens, but for what you get — great build quality, outstanding sharpness, little to no chromatic aberration, and almost zero distortion — the lens is worth every penny, and destined to become a modern classic.

The Sigma sells for $1,399, which I think is a more than fair price for such an outstanding lens.
