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: Bright as hell, fast and silent autofocus, fabulous boken, bold colors, a real super macro and good for most cases.. Apart from the views clearly, exceptional stabilization perhaps one of the most successful Sigma..

Cons: Maybe it's a bit delicate. You immediately understand that if you fall it's doomed. it must be treated with care. They say to turn off the stabilization before turning off the machine. I never remember to do it and so far he hasn't complained. but apart from this other defects it has none..

Opinion: A real macro from details and it is one of those lenses that you regret not having on the camera when you get the shot of the day, the focus is precise and fast, it hesitates a bit at minimum distances but you just have to move the frame and find the maf.. and fabulous stabilization.. The colors are saturated and the contours are sharp, great optics ! Used can be found at good figures.. New costs a lot..

Pros: Everything, easy to use, sharp, convenient to use with the stabilizer, even in macro, with the eos R7, with electronic shutter, gives great satisfaction, entertaining, a real pleasure to have it, to buy both new and used, like mine

Cons: Nothing!

Opinion: Complaining about this lens would perhaps mean not admitting that you do not know how to photograph. Those who have worked their way up the ladder know what I am talking about. In the macro it is excellent, much easier to use than the non-stabilized sigma 150mm 2.8 and the unstabilized tamron 90mm 2.8, which I got to use. Useful for portraits, with excellent sharpness

Pros: Price

Cons: Worth what it costs

Opinion: I have owned it for too little time to make a real review, I found it used in a friend's photography shop and it practically cost me 150 euros so I took it home. It is not a lens that excites me, even if real defects for the moment there is no I found them, since complaining about the autofocus of a macro lens, since in macro the autofocus is not used, seems trivial to me. The sharpness as far as I'm concerned is not a problem, modern lenses are all very sharp, maybe even too much, so much so that sometimes it almost disturbs so much sharpness ..... but looking at the photos there is something missing in this perspective, I have not yet understood what, but for the moment I do not feel satisfied with the yield .... I'll have to try it better.

Pros: price

Cons: focus

Opinion: there is better around at the same price, poor resolution, bad focus species macro, I'm very disappointed I went back to using an old Nikkor 105 2.5 of 1978 that even if I have to use it in manual and does not read the light if not in stop down is much better. I had read excellent reviews and I also read here and for this reason I am very surprised by the not good yield and the difficulty of focusing
