I swore to myself when I started collecting lenses that I'd only use those of my camera's manufacturer but the Sigma changed that. I was lucky enough to get my hands on the lens before purchasing it and immediately noticed how sturdy this lens is. That in itself implied reliability and in the years i've been using the lens this has held true. The build quality is excellent. It feels rugged and unbreakable, but some may find it slightly on the heavy side if holding it for extended periods of time. The coating on the lens body ensures constant grip and the zoom/focussing rings are well proportioned for ease of use. This is a reasonably fast lens ... Read the complete review

Sigma is a world leader in lenses and they are proving that they can actively compete with Cannon and Nikon This Sigma 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro Interchangeable Lens is a great lense, I was suprised just how good infact, I have several Macro lenses, by cannon and nikon and this is easily as good if not better. The build quality is superb, the lens feels very robust and the manual focus ring is nicely it feels very sturdy and looks like a very expensive Nikon lense as apposed to a cheaper alternative. The opticals on this lense are very good, I compared them from f/2.8 through to f/11 and f/16, noticed there was a little colour reproduction ... Read the complete review
