Beautiful Lens for Macro Photography on Nikon Cameras

  • Summary: I LOVE this lens. It takes amazing photos on my Nikon D800. For whatever reason, on the D800, to get proper exposure with this lens, manually set exposure to -1.0 Stop. Otherwise pictures are overexposed. Macro photos with this lens are amazing.

Absolutely awesome macro lens

J Silverman, Amazon

  • Summary: Since I've been wanting to do more nature/outdoor photography, I decided that I could use a good macro lens that would work with my Canon Rebel T2i to take some nice shots of small insects, flowers, etc. After going through my options for macros, I went with this lens because of all the positive reviews. Here's my experience with it: Focal Length: This lens is of course a prime lens meaning that you can't zoom.

Helped me take the next step

  • Excerpt: I use it mostly outdoors for insects, small flowers, dew drops, frost etc. Coming from the "old school" I always used tripod. Until I tried the Sigma with two levels of image stabilization and focus limits. I have great results handheld at 1/50s. Of course Sony's focus peaking function is very helpful as well. Outstanding colors, bokeh and sharpness. Heavy.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Great lens at a great price

  • Excerpt: Relatively lightweight and super accurate. Tried it shooting flowers and small insects. Tack sharp. I own the 120-300 Sigma sports lens and this one is so much easier to handle, especially on the D4. I own 3 of the newer Sigma lenses and feel that they really stepped up their game in the last couple of years. Super satisfied will all of them. Thanks Sigma!
