indeed excellent. The prices of Sigma macro lenses are reasonable

  • Summary: I have a weakness of the Sigma macro line of lenses. (I own and use four of them heavily.). Their optical and mechanical qualities are commendable, indeed excellent. The prices of Sigma macro lenses are reasonable. These lenses are easy to use and present attractive, professional quality results.

Focusing Troubles

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens hoping it could combine my "nifty 50" with a macro-both of which I use for my newborn photography. All the reviews I read online said it was hands down better than the canon lens, so I was suprised when I was unhappy with it.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

  • Summary: This lens doesn't work on my Nikon D5300. The camera says the lens is not attached. I guess now I understand why both times I ordered this, I received what was an obvious customer return. Returning.

Optically better than Nikon lenses.

J. Niemann, Amazon
11 January 2015
  • Summary: I have been taking pictures seriously for over 40 years. During this time I have used exclusively Nikon equipment, pro camera bodies and Nikkor/ Nikon lenses. When I became interested in macro photography shortly after I began, my preferred setup was a Nikon bellows with various lenses.

  • Excerpt: Excellent macro that shoots sharp close ups. Small, lightweight and fits in bag nicely. Shoots good wide open or stopped down. Works well with LED video light to provide extra light when needed.

Great "Normal" Lens, Great Macro Lens, BEST 50mm in this price range!!

Jim Richards, Amazon
22 December 2014
  • Summary: The Sigma 50mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro Lens is one of my favorite lenses. There are faster 50mm lenses, and there are macro lenses that allow longer subject-to-camera distances, but a lens that fulfills the function of a fantastic "normal" lens (I shoot full-frame on a Canon 5D) with exceptional...

Biggest Bang For The Buck

Ken, Amazon
12 December 2014
  • Summary: I have always purchased Sigma lenses over proprietary lenses. They have superb optics, sometimes even superior, at usually half of the price of Canon and 1/3 of Nikor. As a pro photographer I have learned that no two same model lenses will be of the exact same optical quality.
