Comments about 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro Autofocus Lens for Sigma SLR Camera:

This lens is the only one from Sigma that I can rate it 5 stars. Not very fast focus, but it's a true macro and extremely sharp.

Comments about 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro Autofocus Lens for Sigma SLR Camera:

I bought this lens to use with nature and landscape photography. I shot under a variety of conditions and found it to perform exptremely well for both distance and macro work. It actually exceeds the claimed 1:1 magnification. It is tack sharp, contrasty and the out of focus rendering is very pleasing. Phenomenally low distortion make this a great performer for copy work or record shots such as for museum objects. One disadvantage is degree of extention of the barrel when focused on the very closest objects.
