This new 70mm f2.8 macro lens is suitable for both digital and film cameras. The macro function is excellent, taking photographs down to 1:1 magnification. At its closest focus the lens barrel extends about 5.5cm but it doesn’t rotate which means th...
Good The optical qualities of this lens are superb. It is sharp with no distortion and contrast and colour are excellent.
Bad The focus motor is noisy and autofocus is slow. In close-up mode we preferred to use the manual focus ring because it was faster and more accurate. Compared with a Nikon or Canon prime the Sigma is mechanically a bit uncouth.
Bottom line The thing to keep in mind here is the price and what you get for it. Optically the Sigma is excellent, and not just in value-for-money terms. It feels and looks good. A good prime lens of this focal length and with macro ability is a joy to use because...

Instruments of focal length from 90 to 150 mm, f/2.8 aperture and the minimum focus distance of about 30 cm are considered classic macro lenses. The term ‘classic' concerns analogue and digital photography on a 35 mm sensor. With the introduction of APS-C...
