Sigma 180mm HSM Marcro for Nikon

S. Klett, Amazon
6 February 2009
  • Summary: Very strange, I ordered this lens off Amazon about 10 days ago for much, much less. I just got it and it does look to be a gray market lens -- meaning it is meant for sale in another country (I am in the U.S.). The only difference between it and a U.S. lens is the length of the warranty and where you send it for service. I do wish they did say it up front that it was gray market but I did get it for just over $500 so I may keep it and roll the dice.

100mm macro is just as sharp

  • Summary: This lens is great for its purpose but you can achieve results just as sharp with the canon 100mm macro which is not an L series lens. The advantage of this lens compared to the 100mm is a greater working distance from subject and It blurs the background a little better. Disadvantage compared to 100mm is that it is heavier and the subject tends to be a little more difficult to focus. If your not a serious nature photographer save your money and purchase the 100mm.

Tamron 3,5 / 180 mm Makro

fotoman1959, eBay.de
10 March 2010
  • Summary: Das Tamron 3,5 / 180 mm Objektiv ist ein feines Teil, daß einen großen Abstand zu den Motiven hält. Gerade bei kleinen Tieren ist es optimal. Die Abbildungsleistung ist bei offener Blende schon sehr gut. Fast keine chromatische Aberation und gute Randschärfe. Die Fassung ist von guter Qualität, es liegt gut in der Hand, obwohl manchmal ein Stativ zu empfehlen ist. Die Schärfentiefe ist bei geringen Abständen doch recht gering, besonders bei Vollformatkameras.
