Most manufacturers offer 50mm and 100mm macro lenses, usually at the top end of the range in terms of optical quality. The 100mm tends to be more commonly used, having the benefit of a longer working distance that avoids throwing shadows on the subject, but sometimes being closer can also be a...

The Sigma 70mm f2.8 DG Macro Art is a great lens. It can shoot great images, they’ll be sharp, and the photos will be crisp. There is no doubting this. But the autofocus will be fussy at times. On top of all this, I wonder why Sigma chose to go f2.8 instead of f2.

Amazing, stunning image qualityBy gerald w.I am a pro of over 40 years in the business. I have used excellent macro lenses from Nikon, Canon and Sony. I got this lens just a few days ago and have been test shooting it with both my Sony A7RIII and A7III and am blown away by its sharpness and...

I want to start out by saying that I bought this lens when it was on sale. The image quality is amazing as expected of a macro lens from Sigma's art series. The auto focus nails it most of the time for me, although, it is pretty noisy.

Used this lens for some macro beauty as soon as I received it. Super sharp and with great contrast. Comparable to the 90mm fe it you don't need the extra 20mm. Just as sharp and AF is just as quick for a macro lens. Paired with my a7rii.

Have been wanting a macro lens for my Sony camera. Finally took the plunge, great glass, also a great portrait lens. Very affordable compared to most macros!

I take photos as a hobby. I have this lens mounted to my Sony A7II and Ive had it for about two weeks. While using it for macro shots, I have it mounted on a tripod and in manual focus mode.

Fantastic Len fast and sharp a little slow to focus but that’s a given with a macro lens.

As a professional photographer, I had many different brands and types of macro lenses. This Sigma Art 70mm f2.8 is one of the bests I ever had. Nicely constructed, first grade materials and supremely sharp!

I received my Sigma 70mm Macro Art Lens for Sony E today . I absolutely love it. The bokeh is smooth and dreamy. Lens is tact sharp. Combined with the Sony A7rm2 it is a winning conbination.

Sigma ART series lenses never fail to impress me. Tack sharp focus and overall, rugged, well-engineered lens. This lens is well-reviewed online, so I'll focus on why you shouldn't get this lens. If you're an auto-focus fanatic, this isn't the lens for you.
