Sigma Macro 70mm f/2.8 EX DG
A versatile lens with a fast aperture and popular focal length for D-SLRs
The Sigma performed very well in the field. It’s well balanced and has a nice finish that's comfortable to hold. In addition, images taken with this lens look great. It includes three low-dispersion glass elements in the lens, which are used to correct many lens aberrations, and that’s certainly evident here. I can’t give you the optical bench qualities of the lens (we don’t have that capability), but frankly, what matters to me is how a lens works on real subjects. I found this lens to be a very capable macro lens with excellent sharpness and color rendition. While designed to optimize digital macro photography, the Sigma 70mm macro works just fine on film and full-frame digital cameras, too. Estimated Street Price: $480.
