Sigma 70mm F2.8 EX DG MACRO

Review Date: Jun 19, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $389.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Really sharp at 2.8 and it just goes up from there. Excellent build quality, good colors and contrast and the manual focusing ring is very smooth.
Cons:
My only gripe is the fact that the supplied 62mm lens cap will not work when the lens hood is on. A 77mm cap has to be used on the front of the lens hood. I was lucky that I had a spare cap.

The lens is mostly used for product shooting in a small studio and manual focus is a must in that environment. The lens is on occasion used outside the studio, so, here is my 2 cents on the Auto Focus. The AF is a little noisier and a little slower compared to my Canon 100 macro. With that being said though, I have no complaints. Oh yeah, the focus accuracy is dead on. All in all, a super lens.

Pros: 9 point focus system works very well. Focus is fast and accurate. Camera is light compared to others, it's good to carry all day. The status screen on the back is great. it's very bright and easy to read.
Cons:
none
