Thanks, Pratman64 :) . That snake shot won me a few contests ;) . The Sigma 180mm is an impressive lens, imo. Quick AF and awesome IQ. Built very well. Had mine for 4 years, no problems.

As well as being an excellent macro lens it's also a great performer for normal telephoto work. I had some fun tone mapping these with Photomatix:

Foxbat!

Thank you for these pics - they are great! They also show off the (great) AF of this lens.

This was my main hummingbird lens for three years. I used it with and without the 1.4x TC. So here are a few more hummers.

Nice shots. I did not know Sigma made a 180mm. Why this lens over the Sigma 150mm f2.8 Macro??

Actually,

I bought mine before the 150mm Macro came out. Glad I did. This is a stellar lens, imo. I have the 135L, so the 150 is a little too close in FL. Also, at the time I was shooting butterflies a lot so I wanted the extra working distance over, say, the 100mm f/2.8.

Those hummingbird shots are really top notch. Detail, exposure, DOF and composition are all excellent. I wish we had those birds over here.

WOW...just WOW...those might be the best Hummy pics I have seen. And now you just confused me completely. I had been planning on getting the Sigma 150mm macro AND the Canon 200mm f/2.8L along with a plan to add the 1.4x and 2x teleconverters. But now maybe I might think about the 180mm instead of the 150mm.

Wish there were more folks posting example pics in this thread. But from what is here really has me thinking things over...great more confusion in my life...just THANKS ever so much! :rolleyes:
