Sigma Macro lenses

 

Having recently purchased some Macro lenses here at Clickasnap and taking some amazing pictures, such as this spider cocooning a fly in it’s web:

The picture above was taken using a Canon 100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM lens & Canon Flash 600ex rt ii

We’ve now discovered we definitely want some bigger ones! There are a vast amount of Macro lenses out there from a vast amount of suppliers, so we scoured the net to see if we could find a good set of reviews from what we would consider to be a good manufacturer. Whilst not the best, Sigma lenses are very good quality for the cost, and are certainly more than ample for the vast majority of photographers who use this platform.

Do you take macro photo’s? What lens do you use?

  1. Hi
    I bought a sigma 105mm macro lens a while ago and love it. The cost was half of what I would have paid for the canon 100mm. I’m on a budget but really enjoy macro so after reading reviews on the lens I bought one.
    The image quality is excellent (for my amateur needs) and the bonus is image stabilisation. While I do use tripods, I often use it handheld so IS comes in really handy. Also the 105mm is about 168mm on my 70d so gives a good working distance.
    I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend sigma lenses as an alternative to their more expensive native brand counterparts.

    1. I’ve got the older version of this lens which is also good. Recently had to archive some old family jewellery rings and stuff and was able to include the inscriptions in each ring made the job easy

  2. Hi after watching the Angry Photographer on you tube saying the Tokina 100mm 2.8 Macro Lens was a must buy, I thought I would look into it and It is a very good Lens for the price only had it a few days and was able to grab this shot on a whim, cant wait to use it properly when I get time in between my day job.
    I highly recommend this Lens because I do think its under priced.
