Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX Macro 1:1 Lens

05_105mmEX_1_
Review Date: Apr 20, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $350.00

 
Pros: Cheaper than the Canon brand, just as sharp, great color and contrast
Cons:
Noisy, slow AF but it's macro so you should be using MF anyways.

I bought this lens last Nov for my DRebel when I was looking for a true macro lens. I love this thing, it's $100 cheaper than the cannon but has just as great color, sharpness and contrast. The only negative thing about it is that the front extends when focusing, but you should be using MF anyways and moving you're camera back and forth to get focus. It's solid built with a sexy gold strip around the barrel.

I've dropped it a few times and it doesn't even scratch. Extremely slow AF, it'll hunt forever until it just gives up. Again, should be using MF anyways. It's a macro lens, not for sports.
This len also doubles for portraits great. I love this lens.
