Sigma AM5900 reviews

AML72-01 Close-Up Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from don't hesitate Nikon doesn't love you the way EPOI did. That's why you can't get your hands on a 5T. Lucky for me this close up lens would be a 7T if Nikon made it. The next sunny day after I received it, I measured its focal length. It appears almost 600mm making it something like a 1.7 diopter achromatic doublet. Its well made except it doesn't have front threads. I have a 72-62 reducing ring and put it on my 70-300 Nikkor zoom et voila: instant close up rig and auto focus to boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I bought this close up lens as an add on to my 55- 300 telephoto/macro lens and have been very pleased with the result. The macro capabilities with this lens attached give me incredible detail in the pics I take. I mostly like flowers and with this I can just about count beads of pollen on the anther. If you're more than a foot or so away the lens will not focus but get close up and it's magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy accessory This is a handy accessory dedicated for the Sigma 18-300mm zoom lens. For the price its usefulness should be handy for any advanced amateur photo enthusiast.;

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Little closer The quality of the image is not affected by this close up lens. It make possible to shoot a little closer image and add a little extra bokeh. I feel it is not a very necessary accessory, but It does a good job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Addition I Bought this with the Sigma 18-300mm lens. I enjoy wildlife, landscape and macro photography and adding the close-up lens is a great way to get better macro photos. I am very happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does A Good Job I bought this with Sigma's 18-300mm lens for using on a Nikon D200. I am very happy with the results I get when shooting macro with this lens on the front of the main lens. My wife and I go hiking a lot and rather than carry a second dedicated macro lens along, I can just bring this. It's a lot smaller and lighter and does a good job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact solution to macro while travelling Sigma Contemporary 18-300 mm lens is an ideal travel zoom. Add AML72-01 and you have a 1:2 macro without any additional weight or space. Highly recommended for enthusiasts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great close-up lens for the Sigma 18-300mm K-mount lens This close-up lens is a great addition to the Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC MACRO HSM Contemporary Lens. Its quality matches that of the lens itself. Do note that this lens was specifically designed for the aforementioned lens, and I cannot vouch for its performance when paired with any other lens. #sweepstakes
