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: I still dream about it at night

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: I had this lens for 3 years in the set first with a 700d and then with an 80d. The bodies changed her no. I was going crazy. It has no tropicalization, sometimes it produces noises like the fanfare of the targets, but the latter point for my demerits. For the rest, great. At the beginning it took a few shots to take the hand with shooting times and openings, photos that, always for my demerits, were not really beautiful. But then goodbye, used to take pictures of objects, food, flowers, portraits also street, capture small details to the right and missing. Sometimes I used to take him to bed, not my wife. I take pictures out of passion and I'm not a professional but to this day, after years, it's the most beautiful lens I've ever had. Not having her anymore, as written by pros, I still dream at night.

Pros: Sharpness.... Price....

Cons: Noisy stabilizer and opening diaphragm nn constant at 2.8

Opinion: my favorite lens ..... Color yield ... Sharpness..... Price.... does not have a flaw for me For portraits is a blade .... I'll have done nn I know how many photos coupled with the nikond7200 and nn I look forward to trying it with sensor full format Unique flaw maybe it is the stabilizer a little noisy and if nn is set to infinity nn comes to 2.8 as opening but it is only to find the hair in the egg ..... with this lens is also that ahhahahahahahah

Pros: sharpenness, stabilizer

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: My first macro lens. Bought less than a month ago, I got to test it also in the field of portraiture. In the latter case, to be appreciated you have to be lovers of extreme sharpness, but in any case you can balance the thing by lowering the level of clarity on raw room. Going back to the primary purpose for which it was designed, my terms of comparison are with a 50 afd, to which I joined extension tubes. Of course, the comparison destroys the still valid fixed nikkor. Used on d7000, I hope I can test it on full frame as soon as possible. Fully promoted

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?
