Conclusion: Although it's not the cheapest of lenses, the Sigma 105mm macro proved to be worth its price-tag. The HyperSonic Motor provided the fastest and most accurate AF and the Optical Stabilizer was invaluable for handheld shots, but where the lens really excelled was in the image quality it produced.
Summary: If you're looking for a lens with the highest image quality for a Canon APS-C camera at an attractive price, seek no further: the Sigma performs very well. For example, distortion and vignetting are low and, important in macro, the bokeh is beautiful. Two small remarks, after a long search. The autofocus sometimes searches in low contrast. And the resistance towards flare is less compared to the current Sigma Art lenses.
Pros: High resolution, Minor difference in resolution between the center and corners, Beautiful bokeh, Very low distortion, Effective image stabilization at normal focal distance
Cons: Sensitive to flare, Tendency to hunt at low subject contrast
