Lenstip review of the Sigma A 105mm F1.4 HSM.
#49
1. 105mm is a lovely portrait focal length. That is one purpose. There is a reason both 85mm and 135mm "exist", some like it short and some like it long. It totally makes sense that there is a compromise between the two, and it gives about the same subject separation as a 85mm f1.2. Since there are 3 manufacturers offering 85mm f1.2, there clearly is demand for shallow DOF (see also 200mm f1.8/2 lenses).

2. You might have odd ideas about photography. OF COURSE good wedding photographers also use big aperture primes. What do you think Canon and Nikon and Sony and Zeiss make big aperture primes for? And then why would Sigma need different rules? Artists don't follow narrow rules, they go where their creativity leads them. So they may use big apertures, small apertures, wide or narrow FOV for whatever subject or purpose. Don't judge things from your own little world, try to understand that other people have other sensitivities/ideas/needs.

PS: Can you show some of the results of that shoot?
