Sigma APO Macro 180mm F3.5 EX DG IF HSM Lens Review

SLR Lens and Camera Reviews
6 June 2009
  • Summary: Sigma APO Macro 180mm f/3.5 EX DG HSM is a very strong contender among telephoto macro lenses. The lens combines very strong image performance on both full frame and APS-C cameras, excellent build quality, low level of distortion and good color handling, all that at very aggressive price.

  • Conclusion: With the price of this lens being half that of the Marque competition and the performance being better in some areas and almost as good in others, we can do little else but to recommend this optic as an excellent buy.
  • Pros: Good build and finish with excellent tripod bush, Three year Manufacturers warranty (UK only), Silent AF that is quick for a Macro, Excellent value for money
  • Cons: A little soft wide open.

  • Conclusion: From an expensive prime lens of high quality we expect mainly and above all very high image quality. It is one of main reasons plenty of amateur photographers give up much more universal zoom lenses. Unfortunately in this category the tested Sigma 180 mm f/3.5 Macro didn’t fare well.
  • Cons: image resolution should have been better for this price/quality segment,, slow and not very accurate autofocus.

  • Summary: Od drogiego obiektywu stałoogniskowego wysokiej klasy oczekuje się przede wszystkim bardzo wysokiej jakości obrazu. Jest to jeden z głównych powodów, dla których wielu fotoamatorów decyduje się zrezygnować ze znacznie bardziej uniwersalnych obiektywów zmiennoogniskowych.
  • Pros: dobra jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, bardzo solidna obudowa i wysoka jakość wykonania,, zadowalająca korekta aberracji chromatycznej,, zerowa dystorsja,, dobrze korygowana koma,, niewielki astygmatyzm,, bardzo dobra praca pod ostre światło,, małe winietowanie,, cichy autofokus,, bogate standardo...
  • Cons: ostrość obrazu jak na tą klasę cenowo-jakościową powinna być wyższa,, wolny i mało skuteczny autofokus.
