Summary: This lens is amazing. I've read that people complain about not being able to get a good shot with this lens, but I think that may be more user error than anything else. I enjoy this lens and its ability to capture great macro shots of insects, my main focus.
Excerpt: Received this lens, from my wife, as a Christmas gift. Lens is very well constructed and works very well on my Canon 6D. The photos are very sharp with good detail, its everything I wanted in a macro lens. Have used it now for just over a week and love it. The only con that I have found with this lens, is that it does not focus as quick as my L lenses, but considering the difference in price it is forgiveable.
Excerpt: Let me start off with I am not a pixel peeper. This lens is quick, responsive an renders great color. I've seen no signs of chromatic aberration or haloing. Very impressive performance, out performs the nikon at f/16 and up, key apertures for macro.
Excerpt: I've owned this lens for about 10 months, purchased new from a brick & mortar store during a Sigma demo. I've since taken some amazing shots of that look incredibly sharp and without any cropping, my favorite being a close-up of a female praying mantis that showed the separation of the individual segments on her antennae. Bokeh is stellar for a f2.8, suitable enough for portraits.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Cons: Heavy, Is And Autofocus Noise, Noisy Os Autofocus
