The Sigma APO Macro 180mm F2.8 EX APO DG OS HSM is a fast telephoto macro lens with a magnification ratio of 1:1 and a large maximum aperture of f2.8. Sigma’s Optical Stabiliser (OS) function and the wide f2.8 aperture allows for faster shutter speeds and a narrow depth of field, enabling photographers to emphasize the subject. Three FLD (F Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent colour correction for colour aberrations and Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and provides sharp images with lots of contrast. The rounded 9 blade diaphragm ensures an attractive blur for parts of the photo that are out of focus. At 1:1 magnification, this lens has a focusing distance of 47cm/18.5in which is a greater working distance than shorter focal length macro lenses. More

About Me Semi-Professional
Comments about Sigma 180mm f2.8 EX APO DG OS HSM APO Macro Lens -:
I use this lens for macro wildlife, mostly rocky shores, for my marine biology research. Being able to get 1:1 images whilst being 3ft from the subject is perfect for nervous subjects. Add the APO 1401 tc and a crop bodyand you have a 375mm macro that gives 1:1 at 8 feet ! Used with a full frame body the resolution is beyond reproach. Even better the lens is absolutely stunning as a low light portrait lens. Incidentally if you use a step down ring the Nikon R1 macro flash works perfectly with just slight edge vignetting (who uses edge with macro shots) which enables me to get perfect non reflection images even in wet conditions. This lens is outstanding and well worth the money.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
