Sigma 28mm f1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro

28_f1_8_1_
Review Date: Dec 7, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: sharp, sharp, sharp Fast 1.8. Macro distance of about 0.04 meter. Comes with hood and carrying belt pouch. A bit heavy (pro or con as you want it!)
Cons:
Bulky, Auto focusing sometimes off. A bit heavy (pro or con as you want it!)

Had it for few weeks now and it is very sharp at any opening.
Fast at 1.8. Great value for the price. Of course comes with hood and carrying belt pouch.
A bit heavy (pro or con as you want it!)
Sigma claims that the macro focusing distance of 0.20 meter, forget it, you can click an object as close as about 4cm close with surprisingly good results.
A nice addition to a collection.

A bit bulky, but understandable for a 1.8 lens, focusing is a bit slow not beeing a USM, seems to have an issue to get the correct focus sometimes. Using manual focusing gives A1 results.
A bit heavy (pro or con as you want it!)
Auto/manual focus is a 2 step job, but you get used to it quickly.
