Showing 1-10 of 205
Lens to be used for the purpose for which it was designed
2 January 2013
Summary: I bought the lens for yourself. The lens is in exсellent condition. Auto focus works flawlessly. Pictures in the "macro" get great. I tried to do the usual shooting, the result was normal, but such surveys would recommend using a long-focus lenses and do not forget that lens is "macro". As the saying goes: "Do not shoot sparrows with a cannon".
Summary: The Sigma 50mm DG Macro is quite possibly one of the neatest lenses I have owned. It offers far more than a standard 50mm lens, in that you also have the Macro features to work with, offering a wide range of shooting options. For the portrait photographer, this is the lens you will want to carry in your collection. For the Macro enthusiast, you will also want this one in your bag.
Great all around lens. Perfect for the macro photographer.

Summary: The Sigma 50mm macro is one, sharp lens! It is just the lens I was looking for to take the walk-around shots I need and to take macro shots. It's focus is quick and precise. Even in macro mode the lens focuses fast and right to the point. The optics are clear and bright. In manual mode the lens is easy and smooth to focus. Sigma 50mm macro is top of the line and half the price.
Summary: As an amateur photographer, I am going to give this macro lens a great rating, because of its inexpensiveness! Who knew that affordable and quality were two words that could collide into something so, so wonderful? The inventors at Sigma! This lens sells, on average, for $250 or something of the like on eBay. For its price, it definitely does a great, great job! And as Canon lenses are so expensive, this has got to be your best bet for a macro lens!
Summary: As with the Pentax and Sigma mounts, this lens does NOT disappoint on the EOS mount either! Simply amazing! This lens is just stunning all around! Pros: ·Sharp as a razor blade, in some cases, too sharp! ·Resolves finer details superbly ·CA/PF, what is that!? ;) ·AF locks on quickly and accurately ·Contrast is outstanding ·Superb color reproduction ·Excellent build quality Cons: ·Not HSM focusing This lens is an excellent and cheap way to get into the world of true macro...
Summary: I use this product ...for close up shots of non moving object, but this lens can be use for portrait photography, or even landscape...take it as a essential prime lens with very good macro capability....
