Pros: Working distance, sharpness, OS

Cons: For me none, a lot of people complain about the weight of the lens but for me it has not been a problem at all, but I have owned 2 180mm macro lenses before so I guess I knew what to expect.

Opinion: This is the best macro lens I have ever used, I have owned several macro lenses over the years beginning with the old 90's version all metal Canon 100mm f/2.8 that elongated as you focused closer to your subject, then the Canon 100mm 2.8 USM followed by the Sigma 180mm f/3.5 then the Sigma 150 OS and also the Canon 180L and the Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS.... None of them compare to this lens. This lens is sharp and bright. In the past I have done a lot of reversed lens macro which is very rewarding, shooting up to 4:1 with a 28mm lens reversed on a full set of tubes, but it is also very challenging and requires an elaborate flash setup, you don't just grab your camera and go. I bought this lens to have a good telephoto prime in the 200mm range that also has macro capabilities, when it arrived I was stoked, it is a beautiful lens, truly striking. It replaces my Sigma 150mm macro that also has OS, which I feel is a better lens than either of the Canon lenses I have owned, but this lens is on a different level than even the 150. I have never thought that OS was important on a macro lens because honestly I didn't think that it worked for macro, but I can tell you that after shooting with both the older Sigma 180 and the Canon 180L that the OS on this lens actually works, you can use this lens in the field without the aid of a tripod or flash and get excellent results, something that was difficult at best with my other two 180's. For the inexperienced in macro, the longer the focal length the more difficult it is to control motion blur when shooting at or near full macro, the 180mms on Canons and the 200mms on Nikon were almost useless for handheld macro in the field without either a good flash solution or a tripod and as far as I am concerned tripods themselves are pretty much useless unless you are in a macro studio or shooting flowers on a very still day, everything seems to move in nature and your DOF is so very thin, for me handheld macro is the only way I want to shoot in the field, you have the freedom to move with your subject while not lugging a tripod all around the field. Anyway, to summarize, the build quality of this lens is excellent, the focus is slow for a big prime lens but that is always to be expected on a macro lens, Sigma made a big leap forward in the finish and styling of this lens, it is a big gorgeous lens, and most importantly it has the best IQ of any macro lens out that that I have seen and I have owned quite a few, and lastly and very important for a macro lens of this focal length, it is easy to use albeit heavy for some. Also, one last note.... this lens absolutely and in no uncertain terms smokes the Canon 180L

Pros: Excellent in everything

Cons: Non-egregious construction and pielamp

Opinion: Really important lens, from the cost probably consistent to the offer: unique 180 2.8 macro 1:1 on the market. It is heavy, but the freehand use for macros is practically unthinkable, so I do not consider it a flaw. It has a really fast AF, I was amazed the first time. It can be serenely used as super canvases, and I throw it there, multiplied to become a 400 f4 of excellent quality does not disfigure. The only flaw is the construction that does not excel, and the lampshade that really sucks. A plastic that when it turns on the dial makes "cra cra". The optical side can't be told anything, it's really a magnificent lens. The Canonists or the Sonari have no alternative, this is the best lens there is to make macros to insects that are not stunned or dead. Nikonists have the 200 f4, but in addition to being rare, it is practically a manual lens (and f4 ). It has no AC (at least not very visible ), it is hyper sharp, I do not know what to tell her wrong. It can also be used for portraits, with magnificent results given the focal length and opening. The price by the way seems to me in line with the offer, 1000 euros for such a multipurpose lens seem honestly more than justified.

Pros: Sharpness, brightness

Cons: Kinda heavy, but it is getting used to an inability to find a ring flash diameter 86; you have to use a gearbox.

Opinion: I have used it for years on Canon 100 macro 2.8 L, great lens for which I am extremely happy with it. Lightness is certainly one of his best qualities. The Sigmone I picked it up because the bugs don't like too much the closeness of the photographer and the Canon is a bit short. Overall I am very satisfied of the quality of the files; wonderful blur. It seems a little slow in focusing when you set AF for use as a medium telephoto.

Pros: Stabilization, brightness, great definition, perfect balance if used with reflex equipped with battery grip. I feel great both with D810 and with 5DS R.

Cons: A bit 'heavy for those who are not used to optics of this type, of course, the cost and not easy to find in used if you are looking for the Nikon attack.

Opinion: I purchased the Sigma 180 Apo Macro f: 2.8 EX DG OS HSM after having used for years its non-stabilized predecessor and with maximum aperture f: 3.5. rnMi I expected a lot of new Sigma stabilized ef: 2.8 and expectations have not been betrayed: it is an exceptional lens that can offer resolution and color rendering really remarkable.rnEnthusiasted by the results on Canon 5DS R, I also bought with Nikon attack and I use it on D810 with great satisfaction.rnE 'a lens that lends itself to the use of macro as well as medium-telephoto: I used it for panoramas, architectural details and, of course, for macro photography. Together with Nikon AF 200mm f / 4 D ED IF Micro is my favorite long focal lens for macro.rnrnQui outputs some shots made with Sigma optics, including the 180 / 2.8 Apo Macro object of the review: rnrnhttps: // www. flickr.com/photos/henry62/albums/72157670323095324

Pros: Good Af, fast precise no calibration ... !!!! ??? and good as well with Nikon 1.4

Cons: weight! weight! weight! mmm ... then every time the stabilizer is turned on ...

Opinion: there is not 70 200 to hold ... kind of optical aberrations to look for with 200 300%, now used only for portraits, very blurry good engraving throughout the frame, great stabilizer but ... for me it would be pretty much perfect if it was not a whalebone nearly 2 kg !!! To say the old nikon 180 2.8 is not so evolved, it's not macro, it's not stabilized, weighs less than half ... 760 grams, though, here's my heretic part .... better or the like? 200 f 2 vr ??? for some could be a viable alternative (to the King 200 F2) cheap and even light ... gulp .. I said ... indeed .. I also wrote it !!!
