Have neither but I would get Sigma. I hear lot of Sony one having issues so that's why I didn't buy one. Maybe it is just internet stuff you hear.

I owned the 90 previously and liked it, only sold it as I also had a fast 85. Gene still has the 90 I think. I’ve never seen a bad report about it, I thought it was a solid performer. Not the fastest AF but you wouldn’t expect that from a macro. Having said that what I have saw of the sigma is good too. Probably can’t go wrong either way

Let me say this

SIGMA 105mm

Ive had both but for me the sigma is miles better

Let me add too....... Its even better than my old canon 100L


TRhoads wrote in post #19184804 (external link)
Are you planning strictly to use it for macro? I have used both...and it is a really tough call. I remember liking the color out of the Sony better...the Sigma focuses a tad faster but not fast, they are macro lenses after all. The background rendering of the Sigma is a bit more harsh and nervous IMO. I preferred the background rendering of the Sony when shooting something not a macro.

Sony 90mm

Thanks for all the great input ! I was leaning towards the Sigma anyway, so that solidifies it.

Cheers ! :-)

Oh yeah, good point, I forgot about that. It’s been so long since I had it

Yeah I feel for those who actually shoot macro and at MFD or products at f/8 and that then it's a great lens, it's just the bokeh I could never like on that lens.

Seeing your image of Death Valley dunes reminds me, I haven't seen a post by Alfredo in about a month. Has anyone been in contact with him lately? Here's hoping all is well with him and his family.

I was thinking about him yesterday and again today while working that image...I know Colorado has been bit pretty hard...

I'm trying to figure out why the larger (5' tall, 7' wingspan) whooping crane looks smaller than the great blue heron. Or at least the same size. Any thoughts?

It's caused by lens compression. From the photofocus (external link) website: "As the focal length increases, the image “compresses” and the background objects appear closer and larger to the subject and foreground elements."

Documenting my weight loss on a dreary January day, I'm now down to 169 lbs. So far, I've lost 36 lbs and I'm just about where I want to be.

Looks like I need to trim up the beard soon though. :lol:
