Sigma 180mm f2.8 APO MACRO

 

I purchased this older Sigma on a whim because I had a need for a good low light macro lens. Most users talk about the Nikon mount version, but I have one of the rarer Canon EOS models.

Nightime portraits and close-ups* (In video mode) ; Color cuts well with Zeiss Ze's

Needs a Rechip to work for still photos because any recent Canon body will say "Error Code xxxx" however, I did put some tape on the electronic contacts and was able to take stills with it, but that's not why I purchased it ; Also it's fairly heavy so...

The first thing you notice about the lens is that it has Sigma's black Zen finish. The Zen finish was intended to give a nice texture to the lens when holding it. And for the most part it succeeds. However, with the nice feel comes a price - it's hard...

Beautifull solid build quality. Excellent optical performance

Imcompabilty. I hate sigma USA''s simple answer and their lack of responsbility on the imcompabilty issue. Tokina can upgrade their discontinued lens(such as Tokian 100 f2.8 macro), why not sigma

The lens build quality and optics is definitely superior than the competition. Although this model is now discontinued it still is far more superior(and still costlier if you can find one used or brand new) than the Nikkor 180mm f2.8 and Sigma AF180mm...

Super sharp and super fast apochromatic design professional telephoto lens, sharper than the Nikkor 180mm f2.8 I had before

A bit heavy at 1350g and quite expensive at US $800
