I was browsing the Lens Sample Sticky here and noticed that the Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX DG Macro was missing. I hope to rectify this here.

Yup, really good lens. I had one but really Macro isn't my thing so I sold it. There are several other sample shots posted in various threads. i know Nitsch had one and took some great shots.

Great macro lens. Wonderful colours and bokeh. Terrible auto focus if you care about that.

Do tell more on this fox _ I've always thought about getting the Canon, mainly due to the internal focusing.

& nice photos Greg.

Most macrophotographers use manual focus and also preset the magnification and focus by moving the camera. This makes AF speed and internal focusing irrelevent. The sigma 105mm also has a very nice recessed front lens so you don't tend to get it dirty or scratch it.

My best Macro's were always MF anyway and I think that is the default. In my experience the AF hunts quite a bit but I found that if I was using it non-macro then I got it almost there by MF and then tweaked very easily and fast with the AF, or just shot MF which I am very familiar with from most of my other lenses. i think the Canon will be better from a handling point of view but for me it was not worth the significant extra when I am only concerfned with IQ.

Lovely shots Greg, especially #2 (I'm biased since Jumpers are favourites of mine). It definitely looks like a sharp lens with good contrast. I've read many good things about the lens, but I have its bigger brother (150mm) so don't need it ;)

I've got the Kenko set myself. These seem popular, probably because of the price. They are a fair bit cheaper than the Canon ones and because Ex tubes have no glass there's not a lot of difference but price. Someone a while ago had a problem with loose fit but I think this seemed a one off. If you are just starting with Macro photography this s a great place to pick up lots of tips. You should jump over to the Macro forum and read the stickies - lots of good info.
