Sigma 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro 35mm Primes 


Sigma’s Macro 70mm f/2.8 EX DG is a large aperture medium macro lens suitable for shooting the smaller things in our world that exist virtually unseen. A macro lens is one which will focus on a subject close enough to render it “life-size” on the image plane in your camera. It also has a “flat” field” front lens element so that it can shoot images of flat objects such as artwork or postage stamps and be tack sharp all the way across the image. This Sigma Macro 70mm f/2.8 is ideally suited for taking pictures of insects or other small creature where a closer approach to the subject would scare them away. This greater distance also allows the photographer more flexibility in lighting the subject with natural light reflectors. Three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide optimum color correction and sharpness throughout the entire zoom range and Super Multi-layer coating reduces flare & ghosting. A floating internal focus system enables a minimum shooting distance of 7.4 inches enabling ability to shoot with critical sharpness regardless of distance. So don’t miss the tiny insects, flowers of the world or the details in a stamp or coin collection or a piece of embroidery all of which are seldom noticed but offer a fascinating world if you look closely enough. Capture them with the Sigma Macro 70mm f/2.8 EX DG.

Very sharp!
Nice focal length on APS sensor (105 mm)
solid construction, nice feel on the body


Screw-on lens hood, makes the use of filters somewhat awkward

A compact and very sharp lens. AF is quite fast, when using the focus limit function. Great for portraits.
