Pros: Sharp, light compared to the new version, good AF

Cons: None at this moment, quid future compatibility ?

Opinion: I wanted to buy a new one when they went on sale before the release of the f:2.8 version with OS, but was offered a second hand (non-DG),so I could upgrade from the Canon 100mm (non-IS) for 100 EUR. AF is as good as the Canon, and with the longer subject distance I can photograph butterflies and dragonflies handheld. On tripod useable with 1.4 and even 2.0 extenders (no more AF). Ironically it is reported in the EXIF as a Canon EF180 f:3.5 macro.

Pros: excellent build quality and optical

Cons: high price

Opinion: I purchased it again after that had risen in price (I think a little over 800 euro) to watch them replaced by the model with the stabilizer. However I must say that it is a view that is a credit to the manufacturer, because of a massive building and cared for and, last but not least, a superb optical quality, from the center to the edges, already af: 4. I use it a lot in the landscape, and also having the 70-200 f: 4 Canon, I must admit that this Sigma is even higher than this but great Canon optics. Very useful for the collar stand.

Pros: Extreme sharpness even seeds / duplicate, focal length, very low cost for the class of optics.

Cons: Covering a little delicate discontinued.

Opinion: And 'perspective razor sharp, to the point that I use with Sigma 1.4x TC mounted on always getting a 252mm crystal clear that I can shoot sure you do not drive out the people who rebuke and at an angle of the field that further blur the background, so pulling more on the subject. When used in areas other than the macro (where the more you use the manual focus), has an AF a bit slow despite limiter has, but to me that I use for the purpose for which it was born, (macro photography) , it is not a problem. Given that it is a series of "EX" (the series "Luxury" Sigma) and costs (or better than "cost") half homologous series "L" Canon, while producing virtually the same results, you do not understand really why Sigma have decided in the output of production, the dark mysteries of marketing. If you're lucky enough to find used but in good condition, it is "likely" to even an affable even better. Recommended!
