Reviews and Problems with Sigma MACRO 70mm F2.8 EX DG

Summary: A great lens for those working on a budget. I've used it in many different situations, out in the sun at f/8 and in extremely low light at f/2.8 higher iso. The pictures always turn out very well. Of course when compared to the nikkor, it has slower AF function in low light and misses the proper focus points sometimes, and is a little on the loud side with the AF motor, but overall it's a great lens to have especially given its price.
Summary: Lovely sharp lens, well built but a little slow and noisy (down to using the camera inbuilt drive).The stupid screw on lens hood was a bad design choice (drives me mad every time I use it), why did they not use the method everyone else uses.
Summary: Surprised at the sheer detail captured by this relatively inexpensive lens. Bought to use on professional macro high detail product shots and filled the gap between 50mm and 85mm primes. Very useful focal length on APS-C sensors (105mm) for portraiture. No distortion, sharp wide open - razor sharp at f5.6/f8. Very pleased and so is my client.
Pros: Absolutely no distortion, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
Sigma 70mm F/2.8 EX DG Macro Lens: Good addition to anyones SLR

Summary: I never realised there were lens up for review on dooyoo. I've reviewed a few cameras, I thought I'd add my two cents to a few of the lens I have. Sigma make a good range of lenses, this is a macro lens. It works with a 1:1 ratio and measures at around 70mm (7cm). used for taking pictures of smallish subjects at a close range, say 5inches to 20 inches.
Summary: I have to agree with everything that Photo Answers say about this lens (have only just got it so things may change but on the first use....) The focus ring is smooth, the build quality is great. 62mm filter thread means it will match a lot of other Sigma lenses, I have their 18-200mm, so previously bought filters can be used. The Matt finish wont be to everybodys taste but if this is the only fault, so what.
