Two important features in one

TheoImage, B&H Photo
10 January 2016
  • Excerpt: This lens fills two needs, fast aperture in a medium telephoto, and close 1: 1 macro focusing. Images I've made so far are sharp and bright. I've noticed that according to my Nikon D7100, the lens is not as fast at close focus.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Heavy, Lens Slows Close Focus, Lens Wshade Is 7" Long

Sigma 105mm f/2.8 Macro

Kim, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I'm using on D3200 crop sensor camera. I've used it for macro as well as product shots and find the lens sharp and easy to use. It does hunt for focus, but I shoot on manual focus with a tripod most of the time so this is not an issue. I find it also takes good portrait photo's with a decent bokeh.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Nice Lens

18 December 2015
  • Excerpt: I have had this lens for a few weeks now and have taken about 300 shots with it. I am using it on my Nikon D7000. So far, so good. Auto focus is not as fast as some other lenses, but this is a macro after all. It is well built and feels very sturdy.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Noisy
