Re: Canon 100mm macro or sigma 105mm macro?


Well, the OP did ask about 2 specific lenses

Another important difference between the Canon 100mm L and the Sigma 105mm is the Canon will accept an accessory tripod ring, and the Sigma has no such part available.

However, the Sigma 150mm macro does have a tripod ring, and it is currently available refurbished from Sigma USA for $829.00 in Canon mount (new is 1099.00). The 105mm macro in Canon mount is currently on sale at Sigma USA (and possibly elsewhere) for $569.00.

The Canon 100mm L is currently on sale for $799.00, but the tripod ring is an extra cost (Canon ring is $172.00, Vello is $49.95).

It is bigger and weighs more (and these could be issues), but I think that the Sigma 150mm is the better buy compared to the Canon 100mm.

Hard to beat the cost on the Sigma 105, but no tripod ring.
