Product Description

Product Description

The Sigma 257-306 105mm F2.8 EX DG Macro lens for Nikon SLR mount is very suitable for taking pictures in nature, while it uses natural light conditions or flash. The greater working distance of this lens is very advantageous when taking the picture of a flower among the branches or an insect. The narrow angle of view is a great aid for simplifying backgrounds and shallow depth of field makes it easier to handle the composition. This lens would have an equivalent field of view of a 178mm telephoto macro lens on a digital SLR camera. This new medium telephoto macro lens employs a new design concept for digital SLR cameras. Its power layout produces an excellent optical performance and also reduces flare and ghost. This lens is designed to reduce the influence of harmful light caused by reflections from the digital image sensor. A screw-in hood is included, for convenient use of circular polarizing filters. It is possible to attach a 77mm filter in front of the lens hood. This lens also incorporates a Dual Focus (DF) system that is designed to make the lens easy to hold during auto focusing. The large focus ring offers smooth and positive action whilst focusing manually. Weight - 16.1 ounces (457 grams)

Optimized for Nikon digital SLR cameras but also compatible with film SLR cameras, the Sigma 105mm f/2.8 medium telephoto lens allows a greater working distance between the lens and the subject, helping it excel in all shooting ranges. The increased working distance of the lens is ideal when taking the picture of a flower among several branches, or an insect on a leaf. The narrow angle of view helps simplify the background, while the shallow depth of field makes it easier to handle the composition. The lens also offers a super multi coating that reduces the flare and ghosting that tends to occur when using digital SLR cameras, helping create crisper, sharper photos. And thanks to the Dual Focus (DF) system, the lens is easy to hold during autofocusing, but also offers smooth and positive action should you choose to focus manually on images. Other features include a minimum aperture of f/32, a screw-in lens hood that supports the use of circular polarizing filters, and a minimum focusing distance of 12.3 inches. Offering a 35mm equivalent field of view of 178mm on a digital SLR camera, the lens carries a one-year warranty.

Originally I didn't want to stray from Nikon products, but Sigma definitely has my attention. This is an excellent lens in both build quality and function. It works flawlessly on my Nikon D40, metering perfectly and in addition, even though it's manual focus on my camera, it is spot on with the auto-focus indicator light (lower left corner of view finder). I highly recommend this lens to anyone who is looking to get into macro! Don't be scared if you're a Nikon D40 user, I was at first, and now I'm hooked on this lens! Do yourself a favor and buy one!

I have had this lens for more than a year so I know all the Pros and Cons; I did not just buy it and I am not writing a spur of the moment review. If you are debating between this lens and the Nikon one, I would go with this one. I am not saying this one in better than the Nikon because I haven't used the Nikon, but I don't imagine it is $350 better.

Now there are reviews that complain about the auto-focusing on this lens. It is a Macro lens meaning its field of focus is very small at 2.8 so it will tend to go back and forth at times, especially if there is a lot of things in the viewfinder. If you know how to use a DSLR then should be able to Manual Focus it. When shooting portrait style photos I have no problem with the autofocus, now with nature it doesn't always want to focus perfectly no, but like I said above it is a Macro lens and focuses very tight. Also a one person said to go to Manual Focus you have to flip the switch on the camera, one the lens, and move the focusing ring. Which is not true. The switch on the lens is a focus limiting switch. Which locks the camera in full minimum focus ratio, meaning it will focus closer up, or you can limit it.

I personally don't like the lens hood because it screws on, instead of twist and lock, which also means you can't put a filter on the lens directly while using the lens hood. Instead you have to put the filter on the hood itself.
Also it fits the Nikon but doesn't lock in the camera body as easy or smoothly, again it still fits and works fine.

I personally love my sigma lens and will definitely buy my next lens through Sigma. Most likely will be the 50mm Macro.

I debated between this and the 105 Nikkor but at $ 350 versus $750, I decided to try the Sigma and return it if it was not satisfactory. The build seems good with a very solid feel and, while the autofucus is a bit slower than the AF-s Nikkors, it is fine for all but the macro shots which need manual focus anyway. Comparing sharpness at f8, it is about as sharp as my 18-135 at the center and much, much sharper as you move from the center. Overall, I'm very happy I saved the $450.

I previously owned the sigma 150 macro. It was super sharp and awesome in any way, just kind of big and heavy. So I decided to get the 105mm because it's cheaper and lighter, more likely to stay in my bag. The 105 lacks HSM but that's not really a problem for macro where you use manual focus, or for portraits where you don't need fast focusing. The min focus distance is about the same.

I didn't get the 60-70mm macros because I also want to use the lens for portraits and 105 is better.

I researched the tokina & tamron equivalents but I choose sigma cause it was cheaper. The reviews say they're all about the same. I agree the Tamron 90 macro is better but it's a lot more expensive. Plus I think 105 is better for portraits.

Overall I highly recommend this lens for nikons. For canon bodies, the sigmas typically front focus and I would only buy canon lenses (canon has a good 100mm macro).

I recently bought this lens for a Nikon D90 camera. I am new to Macro Photography and chose this lens over the Nikon 85mm. At first I had trouble taking macro pictures with the lens. I know you are supposed to use a tripod, but right now that's just not my style. Finding a way to put a tripod in front of a flower and trying to catch the bee in the act just doesn't appeal to me. My pictures at first were blurry. My shutter speed was too low to hand hold the shots. After giving the shutter more speed I solved that problem. Now my pictures are just as nice and clear. The lens works well with my Nikon D90. It doesn't make any noise at all and is very snappy to lock in when I use auto focus. It doesn't hunt at all. I did find that in taking pictures of things close up it is easier to take the pictures in manual focus. Focusing in manual is real easy with this lens. The picture quality is fabulous! I just love this lens!!!!! I posted a link to some of my pictures in the comments section.

The Sigma 105mm macro lens is an exceptional performer both in the non macro auto focus area, and the manual macro position. Excellent glass and ease of operation has contributed to some amazing detailed photos of insects with my Nikon D80. Locked in at F32, the DOF is tremendous, extending the entire length of the "bugs". With its iTTL in the camera's flash mode, portraits are correctly exposed at various distances. Married to extension rings, or magnifying filter attachments, allows clean images. With the 1:1 aspect ratio, small subjects are captured life size with a working distances of 5 inches. Significantly cheaper than the Nikon version, it provides outstanding performance with no spherical aberrations....
