Can this lens be used on Canon APS-C (smaller sensor) bodies? If so what would the effective focal length be?
Asked by: Cecil
Yes, it can be used on APS-C sensor cameras. The focal length will not change, the angle of view will be similar to that of a 280mm lens. It will be cropped but the magnification will not change.

question

Lens is 8 long and has a mfd of 18.5 . The sensor to lens mount should be roughly 1.5 . That must leave a working distance of 9 when not using the lens hood. Is something in my calculation off or the working distance is truly 9 ?
Asked by: Ramin
The subject can be no closer than 1.54' from the sensor of the camera.

Hi, I know this lens is optimized for macro. Would there be any drawbacks to shooting other distant subjects, such as birds in flight? I am using the Nikon D850 and D500.
Asked by: Ray
I use a Nikon 200-500 for birds. I bought the Sigma Macro 180 for butterflies, bugs, flowers, etc. But the 200-500 is on my camera so much that I end up trying to use it for butterflies. The 180 is a great macro lens, but I when I have tried to use it for birds, I am always left wanting the 200-500.

I have a sony camera 9A is this lens compatible for this camera?
Asked by: Carlotta
This lens is not compatible with the Sony A9; this lens is an A mount battery (for Sony dslr) and the Sony A9 is an E mount camera. It can be used with the Sony adapter: https://bhpho.to/2bxLTPa

Can a Canon MT-26EX-RT Twin Lite be attached and work with a Sigma 180mm f/2.8 APO Macro attached to either a Canon 7D MII or Canon 5D MIV?
Asked by: LaNette
Sadly the Canon Twin-Lite does not attach to the Sigma 180mm. But the Sigma 180 is a great lens.

Any drawbacks or trade offs in using this lens on an APS-C camera body? Any potential advantages?
Asked by: Cecil
The Sigma 180mm f/2.8 APO Macro EX DG OS HSM Lens (for Canon), B&H # SI18028AMEOC, would be compatible for use on both Canon full-frame cameras and Canon APS-C sensor cameras. Do note that, as with all Canon APS-C sensor cameras, when comparing the angle of view of the lens on a full-frame camera to that of the same lens used on an APS-C sensor camera, there would have a 1.6x crop factor. As such, the Sigma 180mm f/2.8 APO Macro EX DG OS HSM Lens would have the equivalent angle of view of a 288mm lens on the APS-C sensor camera.
