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
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. Professional photographers may feel the need to buy the more expensive brands but this one is perfect for me.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
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. It is a beautiful macro lens and it's abilities for taking those very close up and personal photos are the proof. This lens is the older model of the two that are available thru Amazon.com.
Summary: This lens is great for 1:1 macro, it's true macro pretty much. You'll most likely have to get a tripod for real close up shots, but wow! It's sharp at around f4 and f5.6. I have also been using this a portrait lens and the photos are coming out great as well! Definite not regretting this purchase, even though it wasn't from Amazon.
Summary: This one is a slightly older model. It works perfectly on my Canon 50D however. Picture quality is razor sharp at all apertures. Auto focus is slightly slower than hypersonic drives but still gets it done quite quickly. Excellent lens for the money.
