  • Focusing distance of 47cm/18.5-Inch
  • Equipped with Sigma's own propriety OS (Optical Stabilizer) system, this lens offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible, enabling handheld close-up photography.
  • This lens incorporates Sigma's floating inner focusing system. This minimizes aberrations which occur as shooting distances change, and enables stable rendering of the image from infinity to 1:1 magnification.

Fast, sharp and accurate!
Ken Luikart
For dragonflies and damselflies manual focusing is essential, and the Sigma lens makes this very difficult by having a stiff focusing ring.

Optical stabilization seems very impressive.

Fast, sharp and accurate! The image stabilizer is fantastic. My first one did have a defect but Adorama and Amazon got a new one to me within two days! I think it is the best fast 180 macro you can buy. Look at my facebook to see some images.

This is a macro lense, so of course I use it for nature close-ups. I shoot 20,000+ snaps a year of butterflies and dragonflies. For dragonflies and damselflies manual focusing is essential, and the Sigma lens makes this very difficult by having a stiff focusing ring. It is very hard to rotate the ring just the micro-millimeter required, so that one keeps rotating the ring back and forth hoping to achieve focus before the subject flies away. My Canon 100mm macro and 300mm EF lenses do not have this problem. I considered the Canon 180mm macro but it is an old lens and I had read good things about the Sigma. For AF shots of butterflies I do get sharp results and am happy with that aspect. Wish there was a way to lubricate the focusing ring though.

I have been a professional photographer for over 40 years. I now have only the best equipment available. Before this lens I had the Sigma 150/2.8 Macro OS lens. Great, but this one is better. The 150 OS only gives you about 1.5 to 2 stops of help with the OS. This 180 has a full 4 stops of help - at any distance. Very fast AF though, to be honest, I only use MF. I have owned about 15 different macro lenses over the years. This is the best one if you need modern features, AF, etc. The only other contender that I own is the Leica APO 100/2. macro lens - legendary. A 100 and a 180 macro make a great combination. Anything less than 100mm gives poor perspective, small working distance and other issues. Well worth the high price. Comes with hood, removeable rotating tripod collar - both are must haves in my book.

This lens is super sharp. The internal stabilization works very well allowing available light shots handheld. It is very rugged and much larger and heavier than my previous macro lens (Sigma 150 f2.8). It focuses fairly fast but it is not a not a match to the other lens that I frequently use for macro photography: a Nikon 300 f4 with a 1.4 X teleconverter.

This lens is great for insects since you can keep your distance a bit. It is also good for other macro shots as well since you don't have to get as close. Saves your knees and back since you don't have to get right on top of your subject and the extra distance helps get more light on your subject which can be a challenge in macro.

This lens really surprised me. I have other SIGMA lens and they normally are very good, so my expectation was set to a very good lens. However, this lens is a super performer. If you visit my truetoad site, Portfolio (macro and flowers) you will see a few examples.
In the macro section you will find a "morning Life" image taken hand held in natural sunlight. In the flower section "my easter flower collection" you will find some examples.

The build quality is top notch and feels solid with a good quality touch to it.
- Performance of this lens for both Macro, portraiture is outstanding, super sharp and contrasty images; I own other Brand Name Macros and this lens is as good or better.

SIGMA knocked it out of the park with this lens.
