Hands-On Review: Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens

You have to give it to Sigma, the company is making some superb, unique lens options for all types of cameras. The 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art for Nikon F, Canon EF, and Sigma SA APS-C cameras is one of the oddest, with a fast constant aperture and a short telephoto to medium telephoto range equivalent to 75-150mm.

Macro Lens Buying Guide

It is probably safe to say that many of us photographers have, either with our cameras or smartphones, tried to capture a close-up image of an insect, flower, toy, or other object. We have an idea of what we want this photograph to look like as we prepare to capture the image. We have seen and admired beautiful close-up images before but, when we nose the camera lens up to the object, the camera balks—it cannot focus close enough to create the image we want to capture.

5 Recommended APS-C Lenses for Travel Photography

After our earlier piece recommending five full-frame DSLR lenses for travel photography, we would be remiss not to also suggest five lenses for APS-C-format cameras. DSLRs with APS-C-size sensors are normally more compact and lighter than full-frame DSLRs and, therefore, advantageous when traveling. Remember, however, that the lightweight design often indicates a design containing less metal that may be less prepared for the rigors of unmerciful use. Also, be sure to calculate the crop factor of the APS-C sensor and focal-length equivalency when considering your lens.
