Opinion:I bought it on Ferorake's advice, because I was uncertain among many others. Even a chicken like me, looking at the photos that churns out this sigma, knows how to understand on the fly the difference between a super and a normal lens. The photos are fantastic, they leave you speechless by how sharp and detailed they are... The blur then is gorgeous. It's probably the lens that makes the most "beautiful" photos I've ever had. More than for macros it entices me to use it for portraits of people and animals or environmental macros The only weak aspect is the autofocus, really slow and noisy... but on the other hand I already knew it at the time of the purchase and for what he has to do the lens is not a problem
Pros:Optical quality, definition and color rendering, robust construction, excellent finishes
Cons:Autofocus sometimes a little slow, weight and footprint not indifferent
Opinion:It is an excellent goal, sharp in detail and with a very good bokeh. Combined with high-performance full frame sensors with results that have nothing to envy to more embodying optics. On aps c you get a 105 mm focus, which is great for macros. The 70 mm are sometimes a bit narrow for a macro, but with a suitable sensor the crop can provide an optimal choice of the final frame. Also great for portraits, with selective focus and appropriate diaphragm. The value for money is also almost unbeatable.
Cons:Maybe on Sony E-mount is unbalanced, but besides all Sigma art for Sony are tremendous in terms of ergonomics
Opinion:Magnificent lens in every Respect. Mind-blowing Bokeh, sharpness higher than any existing lens (staying on full frame), really small size. Allows it to be used anywhere, and lack of stabilization frankly does not feel given the lightness. Horrendous the fact that arriving at ratios of 1:1 the lens will stretch enormously, which the Sony 90 G does not do. It has, however, a greater lightness, a better sharpness, and probably a general rendering of the best image. Unfortunately the construction compared to the Sony is unparalleled... But it costs half. Lens paid €450 New MT Trading, the only lens in my life that has bought new (or that you remember frankly). It is not advisable for very susceptible insects (it is only a 70mm), so it is better to operate it for static Subjects. At the level of optical quality does not exist any better, it really does not have a single flaw about the IQ. All I can do is advise her with her eyes closed.
