Sigma Apo Macro 180mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Review

What Digital Camera
8 April 2013
  • 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 image quality and beautiful pictures. This is not merely one of the best lenses to have been tested in WDC's reviews, it could even be THE best lens tested so far.
  • Pros: Fast f/2.8 aperture, Excellent sharpness, No colour fringing, Optical stabilisation, Padded carrying case, Removable tripod collar
  • Cons: Fiddly lens hood, Rather bulky

Sigma APO Macro 180mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: The 180mm focal length of this Sigma optic provides both the best and worst of lens qualities. Such a focal length gives a good working distance from the subject and a great narrow field of view, but it also means the lens is bulky and heavy. To an extent, this is offset by the inclusion of image stabilisation, but in practice it provides a benefit of only around 1EV when shooting macro images.

  • 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.
  • Pros: bardzo dobra jakość wykonania,, świetna rozdzielczość w centrum kadru,, rewelacyjna rozdzielczość na brzegu kadru także na pełnej klatce,, bardzo dobrze korygowana aberracja chromatyczna,, niewielka aberracja sferyczna,, znikoma dystorsja,, niezauważalna koma,, mały astygmatyzm,, winietowanie mało uciążliwe na mniejszej matrycy,, cichy i celny autofokus,, bogate wyposażenie standardowe,, trzyletnia gwarancja z możliwością dodatkowego przedłużenia.
  • Cons: praca pod ostre światło mogłaby być lepsza.
