The lens is an excellent lens for close-up photos. I am not a professional photographer but I try really hard to get good sharp photos. This lens will do the job.
Since it is also also a 50mm lens I have used it as a normal lens. The only problem with that is that over the years many of us have been spoiled with zoom lenses. With a zoom lens you can stand in one spot and zoom the lens in or out to get closer or father from your subject. With just the 50mm capability of this lens you have to physically move in or out to get a closer shot or a wider shot. This is not necessarily a criticism, just a comment about how we have been spoiled by zoom lenses.
I do not believe you will be disappointed with this lens. The price is great for the quality.
I chose the Sigma 50mm F/2.8 EX DG Macro and have found that I made a very good choice. I don't know all the technical in's and out's of a camera lens so I can't really discuss that topic.
But... the day I got my lens I mounted it up, put my camera on a tripod and took some killer macro shots of small plants. I may not know the tech stuff but I do know a great picture and this lens is helping me get them.
I'd highly recommend this lens.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
This lens is relatively small and light, which makes it great as a walk-around lens, although it does extend to about twice its length for 1:1 macro work. The build quality is very nice and Sigma's speckled matte black with gold ring is handsome, but the extending front element has just enough play to be able to feel it wiggling in my grip when I grab it, so not Canon L build standards. Auto-focusing is a little noisy, but quick and accurate. Manual focusing is quite pleasant, as the focusing ring is well dampened. The ring has about 180 degrees of turn for its macro range, but only about 1/2" of that travel is for 2 m to infinity.
The minimum working distance for 1:1 magnification (the distance between your lens and what you're focusing on) is about 1 3/4", and for 1:2 magnification, it's about 3 1/4". In reality, most of my macro shots are somewhere between there, but 1:1 will not be practical with this lens for most insects.
There are two main drawbacks. The main problem that bugs me is that there is no full-time manual focusing in AF mode, which I have come to expect in modern lenses. If you're auto-focusing, and the lens just isn't hitting the mark, you should be able to just grab the focus ring and manually fine tune it.Read more ›

It doesn't come with any manual. So, if you are a beginner, good luck. It shoots in Automatic mode but the bokeh is just too much. Read morePublished 3 months ago by jbar2000
