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

Perfect!

By Joe
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-12

My only regret is that I waited until almost autumn to purchase this. First day out and it blew my mind. I'll need to learn focus stacking to make the best of it. I did not take a flash with me but I will moving forward. Sony a7IV auto focus worked well but using manual is necessary to get details the camera doesn't know to choose. 10/10 would recommend.

Solid Investment

I have been using this lens for a few weeks now, and it was purchased largely for product and macro work. This lens has quickly become my go to portrait and general event workhorse. Sigma's art line continues to impress me, provides for a beautiful bokeh, quick focus, and is solid in lens than great lighting. Would absolutely purchase this again.

This lens is heavy

When this lens is mounted on the Sony a7 iv, the camera is quite heavy, and it's challenging to focus when hand held. The lens gets excellent reviews but may not function well if weight is an issue for the photographer.

Very Tack Sharp Lens!!

You will not be disappointed. With this lens. Great for portraits and macro photography.

Finicky focus

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.

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

Amazing sharpness!

By Tom

I bought this lens specifically for scanning film after reading other reviews. If that is what you're looking for, don't hesitate, it's sharp and the auto focus finds the film surface fast. Once it is focused on the film, I switch to manual to just hold focus where it is and quickly snap each frame of film! It's perfect for this. Sharp from center to edge as you would want. Color reproduction is spot on. The lens of course is awesome for regular macro purposes with amazing images.

Will the 105mm macro work with my 5 axis stabilization of my sony a6600?
Asked by: Robert
Yes, in camera stabilization still works, you just don't have stabilization with the lens itself like the 90mm macro from sony. Personally, I haven't noticed much difference between the two in normal use as far as stabilization goes but I tend to use brighter light and higher shutter speeds.

This lens is rather long. Will it come with a tripod collar?
Asked by: randall
FWIW, I often use the Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN on a tripod without a collar. It's roughly 400g heavier and 70mm longer than this lens. My Acratech Ultimate easily handles the torque.

Has the autofocus speed improved over that of the Sigma 70mm macro that some people complained about?
Asked by: Douglas
I own both lenses and mostly do macro photography. The autofocus on the 105 is significantly faster than the 70, but it won't set any AF speed records. The other benefit is that the 105 focuses internally. This helps when subjects are skittish & have wings.
