Sharp and easy to sue

  • Excerpt: I mostly shoot film. My SLRs, those with good pentaprisms, use film, and so I was looking for a lens that would work with an autofocus SLR. So far I have tried this lens with the single camera that happened to be just about out of Fuji Velvia -- my Rebel 2000.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction

For Macro Work

  • Excerpt: For me I think this is the perfect lens. If you're thinking of purchasing one like it the main decision you'll be making is choice of focal length. I like 105 mm but I know some photographers would prefer a length of around 50 mm.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: Right out of the box this lens was awesome. 3rd picture captured was a bumble bee on a flower - amazing detail. As with any new lens takes a bit of practice to get used to. It's a lot of fun seeing the small world up close. Also used for portraits of my animals and these show super sharp details.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Excellent Lens

  • Summary: Very sharp even at 1:1 magnification. Optical stabilization does not seem to work at 1:1 on any macro that I have been able to find. The stabilization works very well at normal distances. It makes a great medium telephoto - it is much sharper than a zoom. Used on Nikon D7100 (APS-C format).

Great Macro Lens

  • Excerpt: Since I've retired, I wanted to get back to doing macro photography of flowers and butterflies. Based on the recommendations of others, I purchased the Sigma 105 and have not regretted a thing. The lens is sharp and performs as well as my other Sigma lens (17-70).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
