Great second lens
4 Star Review   By member michrony - Jan 27, 2008   

Strengths: Sharp

Weakness: autofocusing issues

I have used the lens for about a month on Rebel XTi, and I really like it. It works great for portraits and I used it for street photography as well. Understandably, in the street it is quite useful as secondary lens to get pictures which would not be possible with wide angle glass, while for portraits it is more of a major tool. I am impressed with its macro performance, it passes the cat shooting test OK. Yes, this Sigma can be used as a scanner among other things. In complicated situations with poor lighting, etc, one needs to be ready to focus manually and be ready for out of focus situations.

5 Star Review   By member persch - Apr 2, 2005   

Strengths: Lightweight, small, good resolution

Weakness: deep throat, could be smaller

My previous macro lens was a Vivitar 90 MM Series One. this one is both smaller and lighter and does not require an adapter for 1:1. God Bless computer optics. The throat of the lens is rather tall, perhaps because it is a digital design. I have used it with my Canon film camera and it is a winner. Great clarity corner to corner.
