Summary: This is and old version of the Sigma Macro 105mm. I looked for it in several second hand stores and finally found the only one here. It works perfectly and the shipment was quick and secure. Thats important when you are purchasing expensive and delicate camera equipment.
Summary: This lens is used on my D700 Nikon. Unit functions as well as a Nikkor lens at a lower price. Picture quality in all modes is excellent, color rendition is excellent, all functions work as if it were a Nikkor lens. Very satisfied with the lens.
Excerpt: I purchased this lens to shoot wedding rings with great detail. It will certainly do the job. The image stabilization will keep from from bring a tripod. I am very pleased with this lens and consider a good lens for the price (under $700).
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro review by RJNaylor
13 January 2014
Summary: I've been shooting this lens for a few weeks and have pretty much left it on my second body (I was using a 50-200 or a 70-300 on it). Most people use it for macro but I really got it to extend the range of my Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 OS and it fills in beautifully for most things.
Excerpt: I am a Hobby photographer and have wanted a Macro lens for a long time. B&H's price and Sigma's great lens allowed me to obtain one. It is proving to be one of my best lens. Very sharp and clear photos. The only minus to it is that it is under rated.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: The only reason that I have given this lens a four star rating is due to the fact that this is the older model of this lens and I purchased it used from a seller on Amazon.com. Had some trepidations about buying something of this nature used and unseen.
Summary: I purchased this lens used from a seller on Amazon.com. This being my very first used lens purchase I can tell you that I was filled with doubts about it's quality. After it's receipt all doubts were washed away.
