Default Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro Lens

Release Date June 28th 2011:

The updated 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro lens now features Sigmaís own proprietary Optical Stabilizer (OS) technology. Sigmaís Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) feature ensures quiet and high-speed autofocus as well as full-time manual focus capability. This lens also has a rounded nine-blade diaphragm that creates an attractive blur to the out-of-focus areas of the image.

If you have this lens, post samples from it here.

I am thinking of picking one up. The price is enticing with the $200 rebate.


Update: Ordered one today. Should be here in a week or so.

Iíve only had it for just over a day now, but so far, itís been a winner for me..! The 1:1 true macro is amazing, and the AF mechanism is near silent. The colors, contrast, and the sharpness - very, very happy with Ďem all.

And the $200 current rebate isnít bad, either. The focus ring isnít nearly as smooth as the one on Zeiss 100 that it replaced, but itís not bad.

All in all, very happy with the choice.

The only knock that I can think of is its regular price. When it almost costs as much as its major brand competitor, i.e., Canon 100L, it is not going to win that market segment, letís face it.

At its current promotional price, around $770, it is an attractive option, however.
