Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro Art Overview

Optical excellence with close-focusing capabilities, the Sony E-mount 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro Art Lens, from Sigma, is a short-telephoto prime optimized for macro use. With a minimum focusing distance of 11.6", and a 5.5" working distance, this lens offers a life-size, 1:1 reproduction ratio for accurate rendering of close-up subjects. Its optical design incorporates one SLD element, which also helps to realize high clarity and color accuracy by suppressing various aberrations and color fringing. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied, which controls flare and ghosting for greater contrast.

Benefitting handling, this lens sports a Hyper-Sonic Motor for quick and quiet AF performance and intuitive full-time manual focus control. A focus limiter switch also helps to boost focusing speed and precision, and there is also a customizable AFL button and dedicated focus mode switch. Additionally, the lens features a nine-blade rounded diaphragm for smooth bokeh quality and the lens housing is also weather-sealed to suit working in inclement conditions.

As part of the Art line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.
Short-telephoto prime is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras but can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 157.5mm equivalent focal length.
One Special Low Dispersion (SLD) element markedly reduces chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
True macro design affords a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification along with an 11.6" minimum focusing distance, and a 5.5" minimum working distance, to suit working with close-up subjects.
The integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) realizes quick and quiet autofocus performance, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. The HSM also permits full-time manual focus control simply by rotating the focus ring at any time.
Focus limiter switch can be used to constrain the focusing range within three zones for faster, more responsive performance: 11.6" to 1.6', 1.6' to infinity, and 11.6" to infinity.
Manual aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications. Additionally, a dedicated aperture ring lock switch can also be employed to prevent accidental shifting of the aperture setting.
Built-in Autofocus-Lock (AFL) button which can be assigned additional functions widens the range of operations available on the lens.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
Weather-resistant construction with a brass bayonet that affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.

Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro Art Reviews

Finicky focus

By Jason

I picked this up because I missed having a macro lens, but I didn't appreciate at the time just how much of a pain trying to focus with this thing would be. I don't think I've ever used one that had as much trouble working out what I was trying to get it to focus on - or not losing it - even when using single point focus. I can probably count on one hand the number of times I've ended up pulling this out to try and use it, which is a shame considering the potential and the price point.

One of the Sharpest lenses I have used.

I got this late in the season - winter's upon us - and the flowers I'd been working with are all past tense. So - I've started using it for landscapes - I live on the edge of a valley in Toronto - the other side are all new shapes and types of condos and office towers - about 2-4km away. Using on my SL2, it's the sharpest lens I've got - likely because it's a prime designed for macro - but I just wanted to point out the specifics. I have a dozen Sigma, about half that Panasonic, and few Vario-Elmarits. Autofocus on distant trees and towers is fast and reliable. I haven't yet used it for macro, but will once the snow starts landing. Photo is a huge crop on a 2.8km distant crane.

I needed a true 1:1 macro lens with a flat focus field to digitize or scan film negatives with my Sony A7R. The first lens I tried as Sony's own 90mm OSS macro and the edges of my scans were on a soft side, while the corners were downright awful. This was disappointing to say the least. So I decided to try this cheaper lens and I am blown away. Absolutely flat focus field, impeccable performance at f/5.6. This lens is in a different league vs the Sony. The auto-focus speed is on a slow side, typically for macro lenses, and it hunts a bit more than Sony's own macro, but it is accurate and it's all that matters.

Very solid build. Easy focusing. I am teaching myself macro photography and it is simple enough for a novice to use.

I had a hard time deciding between the Sigma and the Sony. All the reviews that I read and saw they seemed to be equal in every way that I was interested. The lens is very sharp and auto focuses rather quickly. I'm still testing it but so far so good.

Great macro

Great details, really sharp lens, love how the photo looks. Only downside, I used a Sony A6300 and focus breathing is really bad, not a big issue because I normally go mf, I preorder a sony a7IV I will update later on

At this price I was skeptical, until my first job with it.

This lens is small and easy to carry for a 105/2.8 Macro. I like it because I often shoot straight downward to capture automotive fabrics with subtile and intricate patterns and color designs. I use it on a Sony A7R-IV and it is the only AF Macro able to fully resolve that camera's 61 meg FF sensor. After doing my first job, this kit replaced a Medium Format kit I'd used up until then. It's a keeper!
