Stunning Performer!

  • Summary: My first Sigma lens since purchasing a SD1 Merrill and glad I did. This lens was purchased for studio use regarding product and still life photography and the results have been excellent. I would purchase this lens again. The sharpness and color results while shooting products/still life under studio lights at f/8 are stunning!

Sweet lens

  • Summary: I didn't expect the clarity that this lens has. I have taken a close up picture of my wife's eye (with a tripod) and the image was so clear I could clearly see the iris with great detail. I am very happy with this lens and recommend it!

Sigma 70mm F/2.8 EX DG Macro Lens for Sony Digital SLR Cameras

John L. Summers, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this to use with a NEX-7. The 70mm Sigma is tops. The macro function is superb. The lens is quick to focus and very precise. I reviewed several newer 85mm with brighter lens. This older 70mm was rated higher in reviews and by those who purchased it. I like the 70mm as it converts to a 105mm on my NEX. Sigma is on a real roll producing quality lens.

Amazing!

Philip Dresser, Amazon

  • Summary: I borrowed a friend's last year to do some 1:1 copies of old 35 mm slides. Very sharp corner to corner, very little distortion. Yes as others have said a bit noisy and slow on focusing but for my purposes that is no problem.

Very Sharp

SurferBud1, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this lens for a Pentax K mount camera. It works exceptionally well, is solidly built and quiet when focusing. The IQ is brilliant. Bokeh smooth & pleasing. Sharpness is incredible. This lens really brings out the stupid in my cat's face.

Great Macro Lens

M. Gunderson "Electronics geek", Amazon

  • Summary: I'm still testing this out, have only had about 3 to 4 weeks now but so far I am impressed. Very sharp and clear macro images. It doesn't seem to hunt as bad as some were stating in reviews and I have not really had to put it on Limit. So far I think it was an excellent buy for the price.

Five star lens without the five star price

Phil Poffenberger, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: This lens works well for portraits as well as close-up or macro photography. The f/2.8 is a large enough aperture for most all macro work. While a larger aperture might allow for slightly faster shutter speed it would still be necessary to use a tripod to insure the sharpest possible photo when shooting this close which more than offsets the small gain in shutter speed. The lens is sharp and crisp from edge to edge.

Razor sharp and super accurate

Ralph A. Jones, Amazon
13 November 2013
  • Summary: Yes it's slow, noisy, and then there's the lens hood issue, (lens hood doesn't fit when the lens cap is attached). That's the bad news, the good news is this lens is razor sharp and super accurate. I use it on a full frame Canon body to produce beautifully clear images. Because of this lenses sharpness and precision I suggest using a tripod when doing any 1 to 1 macro work.
