The Sigma 180mm f/2.8 APO Macro EX DG OS HSM Lens (for Nikon) is a high-speed macro lens offering a magnification ratio of 1:1 and a focal length of 180mm. This lens is compatible with the Nikon F mount for use on full-frame and APS-C DSLRs.

This lens incorporates 3 FLD glass elements for color aberration corrections, as well as a floating inner focusing system to reduce other aberrations such as field curvature and distortion, resulting in accurate scene rendition from 1:1 magnification to infinity. A Super Multi-Layer coating helps to eliminate ghosting and flare as well as produce images with more contrast and sharpness. The rounded 9 blade diaphragm also provides an appealing bokeh, especially when photographing at the maximum aperture or at 1:1 magnification.

The integrated OS (Optical Stabilizer) system permits users to photograph handheld with shutter speeds up to 4 stops lower than usually possible. An HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) is also incorporated into the design, ensuring quiet and quick auto focusing and manual focus capabilities.

    Sigma 180mm f/2.8 reviews

    180mm f/2.8 APO Macro EX DG OS HSM Lens (for Nikon) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive lens with its own set of possibilities I have owned this lens for 2 weeks and have used it only for shooting flowers. IMHO, this is a great lens for its specialized purpose of shooting small objects from a distance, and its use may be awkward in confined areas. The long reach produces great background compression. The focus is very sharp from wide open to about f/22, and the transition from selective focus to background blur at f/2.8 is very nice. Even with OS, its heft (slightly greater in diameter and weight than a Nikon 70-200mm lens) makes it difficult for me to take hand-held shots, but others may have steadier hands than me. I look forward to exploring many new possibilities with this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a must for macro work I bought this for three reasons. 1) outdoor macro photo of local flowers and wildlife-works great, good sharp focus,great bokeh. 2) Photo's of pets and poeple again sharp and great bokeh 3)I wanted a fixed focal lenght lens in this focal lenght for general low light and outdoor photography since I had multilpe zooms. I was going for extra shapness and this len met the specalso I wantes image stabilization which nikon did not offer. The lens is heavy(its a beast) but is well built and does focus smoothy. It meets my needs with my nikon d800e which requires a super sharp lens nd optica image stabilization for best results

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing lens for macro photography I purchased this lens mainly for flower macro photography. I'd Sigma 105mm macro lens before, and wanted to upgrade to this lens. It is a beast. In the sense, sturdy lens, sharp, and what I loved is the range of 180mm. Which serves the telephoto need too. I did handheld flower macro shots outside with this lens using my D800, and I was amazed with the results. It is heavy, so kinda hard to lug in, but with monopod or tripod, and Kirk's LP1 lens plate, works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Build quality feels very nice! Sigma seems to have really done a nice job with this. When they say APO I think they mean it!this far outperforms my Nikon 105 in the areas of contrast and color fringing plus the 180mm gives you much more releif at 1:1. The background out of focus is also very pleasing on this lens even close up ( not busy at all ) so much so that I dont seem to want to take it off of my D700.Sigma has put a very nice finish on this lens and thankfully so as I was not a fan of their old finishes.This lens is big so be prepaired! if you don't want a big lens get the 150mm instead as it's very similar and much smaller and cheaper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I'm a Nikon shooter and have always been a bit picky with my lenses. I've used only Nikon glass both fast primes and fast zooms. I've used the 105mm 2.8 macro for several years with great results but often want a little more reach. I've been hoping for a reboot of Nikon's 200mm macro lens as I'm hesitant to spend that much on a 20 year old lens with no VR. Tired of waiting and tempted by numerous excellent on-line reviews of this Sigma 180mm macro I decided to take the plunge. I've been nothing but impressed. The sharpness on my D800 is comparable to all my high end Nikon glass. The autofocus is extremely quick and accurate and works fairly well even at 1:1. I find I don't use manual focus any where near as often as on the Nikon 105mm macro. The optical stabilization is outstanding and greatly helps with hand holding when you're not able to use a tripod. The only negative is that the front element is so large(86mm) that ring flashes and Nikon's own macro flash system won't fit. Guess I'll have to spend more money on Really Right Stuff macro adapters. Overall this is a great lens and may make me a little more open to off brand lenses in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Lens I was skeptical about the quality of a Sigma Lens...I usually buy Nikon. Nevertheless, since the Nikon 200mm Macro was not available, I decided to give this lens a try. It produces sharp, colorful, images. The focus is as fast or faster than the Nikon 105 macro (which I also own). But, the most delightful aspect of this lens is the gorgeous Bokeh it produces. It is heavy, however...feels like the 70-200 2.8 when it's hanging around your neck.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Quality I use the Sigma f/2.8 APO Macro on my Nikon D800e mainly for Macro photography, but sometimes will use it for landscapes and for taking outdoor portraits. This lens has superb sharpness and top of the line contrast with great colors ! I cannot say enough good about this lens and have found absolutely nothing negative to say about it !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lenszilla! As other reviewers have mentioned, I too got tired of waiting for Nikon to upgrade the venerable 200mm f/4.0D ED-IF AF Micro-Nikkor. But when Photokina 2014 came and went without Nikons announcing a succsessor; and with it still back-ordered at B&H, I decided to purchase the Sigma 180mm f/2.8 APO Macro EX DG OS HSM. This is a big bruiser of a lens, even for a telemacro. It weighs a little over 3.5 lbs and with my D800 attached, that's around 5 lb of equipment hanging around your neck; a little less with my D610. Even so, hand-held shots are still feasible. So far, my results have actually been more satisfying than with my f/2.8 105mm G micronikkor. Sigma's image stabilizer is quite effective and gives me at least 2 stops of leeway, maybe a little more; but the best results will be obtained by using a monopod or preferably a tripod.The lens is very sharp between F/8 and F/16. I was concerned about chromatic aberration as, according to test reviews, CA is almost non-existant in the 200mm f/4.0D ED-IF AF Micro-Nikkor, whereas in the Sigm 180 2.8 CA is merely well controlled. Nevertheless, I have not noticed any CA in the centers, edges or corners of any the several hundred shots I have taken so far; but then again, I was not going out of my way to induce it.I found that the focusing rate is quite good for a lens of this type and size. Remember, this is a MACRO lens; it's not going to be good for fast-moving sports action. There is a tendency to hunt if the focus limiter is not engaged. But not more so than any other modern macro lens I've used. And it takes a full 1.5-2 seconds to focus from 1:1 about 10.5 subject to front lens distance to infinity. I thought about taking off one star for the weight and the large 86mm filter requirement which can restrict the use of macroflash attachments. Even Sigma has not issued so far an 86mm adapter for it's own Sigma EM-140 DG macroflash unit. It may not even be feasible, the largest available adapter is 77mm. So, if macro flash photography is your thing, you better think about getting some macro flash brackets from Novoflex or RRS.But the lens is what it is, a great big, sharp, bright beautiful macro lens with exquisite bokeh, which is best appreciated between f/2.8 to f/5.6.
