REVIEW: Sigma 180mm f/2.8 APO EX DG OS HSM Macro Lens Review
6 July 2014
Excerpt: Handling and features This telephoto macro lens from Sigma is the first 180mm macro lens capable of life size magnification with a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture. This lens also sports optical image stabilisation and silent HSM focusing, with full time manual override.
Summary: In summary, Sigma’s 180mm f/2.8 lens is a costly choice for everyday use but a bargain for macro-photography. But there is more to any lens than its price-tag alone and Sigma has produced here a lens of exquisite quality that is not only feature-packed but also capable of yielding both impeccable...
Pros: Fast f/2.8 aperture, Excellent sharpness, No colour fringing, Optical stabilisation, Padded carrying case, Removable tripod collar

Cons: work against bright light could have been better.
Summary: Podsumowując, gdybym miał obecnie kupować obiektyw makro klasy 180 mm, Sigma ma sporo argumentów, którymi mogłaby mnie skusić i spowodować, że zrezygnowałbym z zakupu obiektywów firmowych.
