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: Robustness, quality of materials and shutter speed

Cons: Lack of tropicalization

Opinion: I've been using it for almost 2 years and I'm really satisfied. I had purchased it to take the macro with the Canon 550d, since my Panasonic FZ1000 in macros does not do wonders in the rendering of images. I have always been very satisfied with this goal. Only thing I noticed that mounted on the Canon 5d MARKIII, at focal 2.8 tends to make a white circle when the light is too intense. Has anyone happened?

Pros: I took it precisely because of its optical qualities, which from the price: the half of the original

Cons: The stabilizer too delicate

Opinion: Bought and used very little, then at some point the stabilizer no longer works, contacted the mtrading and tell me that a possible failure to the stabilizer is due to my negligence that I placed in the backpack with the stabilizer still on. Then they told me that even if it was off the stabilizzatoree and put back in the backpack a trivial displacement of the backpack (ultra padded) in the car or a bumpy road is enough to break the internal mechanisms, and as they said, even if it is still under warranty the Guarantee does not cover that fault, because a fault with the stabilizer is attributable exclusively to the negligence of the owner. But the stabilizer can not spoil on its own? Total paid 430 euros. The repair to my load is more than 250 euros although and still under warranty at this point if I bought the original NIKON 105 macro cost you the double about, or the Tamron 90mm but without a defect so serious design that if you also repair it then most likely It will spoil again. I have 6 other lenses of which 4 stabilized but no one has ever failed. On this lens I have already read on several forums of this flaw I'm not the only one. Indeed place a link to see (and it is not my goal), to confirm the defect. Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EULjSE6k6fY the end of the story. Bitter experience and delusoooooooooooooooo

Pros: Sharpness, stabilizer, construction, accessories, colors, blurred, AF, price

Cons: Noisy stabilizer, tropicalization (but at this price you can not ask for more)

Opinion: After kit lenses It was my first serious fix. Purchased during an offer on Amazon at an exceptional price, the best money spent in the photographic field (and not only), it is worth them all and even more. A vision that I use with extreme satisfaction in portraits and clearly in macro. Scary sharpness even at TA and very pleasing bokeh. With the passage to the FF (D600) I appreciated more the surrender in portraiture and the focal, which on D3300 was a bit ' long, in the full format has taken a new dimension. Stabiliser efficient Although a little noisy but in macro (manual) No need, ergo.. Excellent equipment and quality construction. Stra-Recommended, at this price then...

Pros: light, crisp, well built, comes with bag and two lens hood, stabilized.

Cons: stabilizer a little noisy tends to underexpose with relationship 1:1

Opinion: I had a nikon 105 2.8 micro vr is a Zeiss makro planar 2 which I then sold for other purchases, I was undecided whether to go back to nikon or not, for Zeiss I don't think manual focusing is not for me. But then I noticed this sigma and reading various reviews I decided to buy it. . What bothers me most is the noise of the stabilizer, the rest who say I saved and I have good optics. I give him 9 as vote if it was art series I think 10 e lode, I have both the 50 mm that the 35 gorgeous art is little more than Zeiss.
