Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art meets Vex

Vex - Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art
The Sigma 85mm with the MC-11 on the Sony A7Rii, with a vertical grip, two batteries and a strap weighs in at over 2.3kg (5lbs). After a few hours I notice the weight. Is it worth it? For portrait work I think it is.

Previously I had the Zeiss 85mm, f/1.8 Batis. It's a great lens and less than half the weight, but the Sigma is my choice.

It's rarely the case that I take the Sigma off f/1.4. It's in that extra two-thirds of a stop where the Sigma shines. It's sharp wide open, even out to the corners.
