assuming it does work with various TC and performs at an exceptional level, it would be the closest thing we can come up to an A* 135/1.8, faster than the 150/4, and a perfect focal length at 170mm for candid portraits.
Im still in doubt with the whole TC thing. I've never been impressed by the results when a lens is used with one.

Popphoto took the Sigma 85/1.4 for a ride. Quote "Sigma's newest prime proves to be more than just a portrait lens.".

Here are some sample images (from a Canon 7D).

EDIT: These pre-production samples might be more useful.

The lens seems to be mighty sharp and retains a lot of resolution at f/1.4. Given that the sample images are unprocessed they look quite impressive. Not sure about the bokeh. Seems very good but can it rival the likes of an FA 85/1.4?
