Pros: Quality of Build; Metal barrel; Sharpness; Optical Stabiliser (though was very noisy on mine); HSM AF; Value, when compared to Nikon's own version; Standard kit, which includes two lenshoods (one for FX, a longer one for DX) and a decent case.

Cons: Weight; Noisy stabiliser (on mine)

Opinion: I bought this fine quality and well respected macro lens in mint condition used - and about a year later sold it back to the same seller (online trader) for only about £50 less. It was to replace an old plastic Tamron SP macro 90mm f2.8, which was very competitive in its sharpness but had an impossibly slow and basic screw-driven AF and no stabilisation. I then found that I could not sell this Tamron (I might have been able to give it away?) in the end and ended up with two macro lenses! The new Sigma was nearly twice the weight of the old Tamron and basically, I never took it anywhere and proved that I just don't do enough macro to justify owning it. IF I could afford to buy one now though, then I'd get the Nikkor 105mm VR, as it is supposedly just a little sharper than the Sigma and would banish the risk of having a really noisy stabilisation system. Or perhaps a new Tamron 90mm VC. (lighter). I did also find the Sigma's fastish f2.8 aperture 105mm on DX (157mm equivalent) to be quite useful to have with stabilisation, for hand-held night shots and live music photography. For now, I'm back to the old plastic Tamron, which does its job, at least. (Focused manually, which is how true macro shots are usually undertaken) However, if you are a true macro user and want a top quality optic, for the money, you cannot lose. As I found out, without a current replacement from Sigma, there is a strong market should you wish or need to sell it back on again, so your risks are low. 9/10

Pros: Sharpness, colors, blurry, detail

Cons: Chromatic aberrations, focus breathing(?), noisy and sometimes inaccurate stabilizer.

Opinion: So, after 1 year of using this lens I think it's time to review it. I had the opportunity to try this lens in many respects and in many types of shots: Macro, urban, portrait, details. It's a really sharp optics and the colors it manages to get are very very satisfying. The only problem that I have unfortunately encountered are the excessive chromatic aberrations at the edges of each subject, which have colors that are difficult to remove with a simple click (purple, blue and green). Another problem I have encountered (I have not tried other models) is a focus breathing when using the focus ring. I also noticed that at the minimum focusing distance (ie 31cm) the aperture closes automatically at about f5.6, while if you turn the focus ring by setting it to infinity the aperture opens at 2.8, very useful in portraits and / or in some particular photo. The autofocus is quite noisy and in case of very close and small subjects it is difficult to use the AF. No problem, you turn the focus ring and the problem is solved, however, why not be able to fully use an included system? All in all the optics are good and once you know these small problems you adjust.

Pros: Niitidezza, blurred, colors

Cons: Stabilizer a little noisy, sometimes very "dark", not tropicalized

Opinion: I approached the macro genre a year ago, and I immediately bought this lens after reading reviews around. Initially I did not have great results, but simply because macro photo requires a great use of technique. Having acquired that and learning to master this sigma, it gave me enormous satisfaction. Fantastic sharpness, exceptional colors and wonderful backgrounds. Very difficult to use freehand, it is at its best on a tripod. Also exceptional for portraits. Be careful because it is not tropicalized. Using it often on damp mornings, one fine day it gave me communication error with the camera. I opened it (I'm a technician, you don't do it) and I found oxide on many connecting flats. Clean those is back to work. Great lens!

Pros: sharpness, colors, stabilizer

Cons: nobody

Opinion: I honestly didn't expect it, it was given to me for my twenty-fifth birthday, and it was immediately a great emotion to use it. I used to own the Tamron 90, but this lens in my opinion is of another category, in addition to the sharpness that distinguishes all macro optics, it has a fantastic bokeh, the background looks almost like a stained glass slab! Being a 105mm it is also great for portraits, although I prefer other types of photos. It is not tropicalized, but I do not see it too much as a con, in the end being a macro, you have to study the subjects and the scene well and you can hardly find one's photographing in prohibitive situations.

Pros: Quality, feeling and feeling

Cons: None apart from the delicacy of the stabilizer (turn it off before switching off)

Opinion: Many believe that the focal aperture is variable but what is variable is the f/stop on Nikon machines. I use it both on APSC and FF with excellent results both in macros and portraits and in other areas. In my opinion it is very performing and the stabilizer is very effective. I give 10 because there is no 9.6.
