Behind the scenes on a studio shoot
"Using the SIGMA 70mm Macro | Art lens for this type of shot was a joy, the focus ring rotates smoothly and allows for very fine adjustments when using the live view with focus peaking . It clearly showed what was in focus. To illuminate this shot I used four LED lights from the Spekular core kit and some Rosco gels. I wanted to complement the orange logo on the product and the little black aquarium stones help give the product a rugged feel." - Paul Monaghan professional photographer.
Here’s a little behind the scene image to see how it was made.
Compatible with full-frame Sony E-mount cameras
The version of this lens compatible with Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras contains the same optical system as for SLRs. SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-11 is not required, as the lens performs the same functions as the converter, including in-camera image stabilization and in-camera lens aberration correction. In addition, the lens is compatible with Sony’s Continuous AF, which is not addressed by MOUNT CONVERTER MC-11. SIGMA plans to offer over time Sony E-mount versions of every full-frame prime lens currently available in the Art line, from 14mm to 135mm.
Note: This product is developed, manufactured and sold based on the specifications of E-mount which was disclosed by Sony Corporation under the license agreement with Sony
The focus-by-wire system eliminates the direct mechanical connection between the focus ring and the focus drive system. Controlled by SIGMA’s latest algorithm, a newly developed coreless DC motor adjusts focus with optimal speed and low noise. Full-time manual focus is available even during autofocus, allowing the photographer to make minute focus adjustments simply by turning the focus ring. In addition, the focus ring’s large angle of rotation helps the photographer achieve the extremely precise focusing required for effective macro photography.

"This cropped image is straight from the camera and shows the dust inside the glass of the watch intact. The amount of detail that this lens can reproduce is tremendous!" - Paul Monaghan professional photographer.
As well as being a remarkable macro lens the 70mm F2.8 DG HSM | A is also highly versatile with a wide range of subjects and shooting conditions
Made in Japan
All Sigma products, lenses, cameras and flash units are manufactured exclusively by Sigma in Sigma’s own factory in Aizu, Japan. No Sigma Corporation product – lens, camera or flash – is manufactured outside of Japan. This is very unusual these days, as most companies have at least some of their products produced outside of Japan because of cost considerations.
There's a reason why SIGMA continues to insist on the very highest quality in its product manufacturing: our love of photography is second to none.
We deeply appreciate the photographer's desire to record and express—the passion of the photographer.
We understand the need to capture the moment that gives rise to a unique work
Top-level performance at every shooting distance
In order to realize top-level performance at every shooting distance, the lens features an extending, floating, two-group focus mechanism. This configuration minimizes aberration to produce optimal results at any focus distance. To minimize axial chromatic aberration, the optical system incorporates two FLD glass elements, two SLD glass elements, and one element with a high rate of anomalous partial dispersion and a high index of refraction. In addition, two aspherical lens elements help increase resolution at close shooting distances. This optical system makes possible a razor-sharp in-focus area contrasted with a bokeh area free of color streaking.
The mount features a special sealing to make the lens an excellent choice in a wide variety of conditions.
Smooth bokeh and minimised flare.
The 9-blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur in the out-of-focus areas of the image.
From an early stage in the lens design process, flare and ghosting have been measured to establish an optical design resistant to strong incident light sources such as backlighting. SIGMA’s Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting to help photographers produce sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions. The included lens hood can be attached to block out extraneous light, which can have a negative effect on rendering performance.
High-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount
The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.
SIGMA USB DOCK (Optional)
By connecting a SIGMA 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | Art lens to a computer with the OPTIONAL SIGMA USB DOCK, photographers can update the lens firmware and adjust focus position and other parameters. Exclusive SIGMA Optimization Pro software makes customization easy. It is possible to select the autofocus speed and adjust the focus limiter.

If you're an auto-focus fanatic, this isn't the lens for you. You can delimit focus to 0.258-0.5m or 0.5m to infinite, and this does improve the responsiveness of this lens to auto-fucus, but otherwise, it's not a fast auto-focus Macro. I knew this when I made the purchase. To achieve that gain you'll have to spend an extra $400-500 on a Sony or other lens.
The focus-by-wire gets a lot of bad press. I have no complaints about it. This lens does require quite a few rotations of the focus ring to move from infiinite to 1:1, but typically when I'm out in the meadows shooting flowers/bugs and what not, I've already got the lens extended. The focus-by-wire is definitely advantageous for micro-adjustment focus. Definitely well-suited for tripod photography.
I'm only discounting a star based upon the lack of internal image stabilization. However, I've been shooting with hit handheld using a Sony A6400 without issue. If you'll be using this lens with a tripod, it's just as good as any other Macro with internal stabilization. Again, $400-500 discount for missing this feature.
I highly recommend this lens, discounting the above. For the price, it's unbeatable.

I am a pro of over 40 years in the business. I have used excellent macro lenses from Nikon, Canon and Sony. I got this lens just a few days ago and have been test shooting it with both my Sony A7RIII and A7III and am blown away by its sharpness and overall image quality. It is solidly built, yet lightweight. Easy to focus in autofocus or manual focus. Focus limiting settings on this lens make quick work of rapid micro autofocusing of moving small subjects . Just a complete pleasure to use. The images are stunning. It is all I could have hoped for at an incredible price. True ART lens IQ. Highly recommend this in whatever your camera mount is. Cheers

The slow auto-focus becomes a nuisance when using the lens for 'normal' subjects. It is a very good macro lens and a decent lens for general photography too. That makes it a useful lens to have on your camera for a walk where you may want to capture scenery AND close-ups.
It is a fairly heavy lens but for macro, especially, that is a good thing. It enables you to hand-hold with less camera shake. Image stabilisation can't work miracles, especially with macro. The attached photos of a damaged watch were hand-held in ordinary room lighting - auto ISO. 100% CROP 1 shows the damaged crystal and 100% CROP 2 shows oil on the hands. Neither can be seen with the naked eye.
Last point, this is the second time I am having a second hand lens from Amazon. The box was opened and lens mount had scratches. Probably, Amazon sent me a returned item again. Anyways, I will keep it, I higly recommend.
mit 70mm angenehme Makro-Brennweite
der Autofokus ist viel zu langsam und unsicher (pumpt sekundenlang), wohl durch die Art der Fokussierung: Tubus fährt aus.
an meiner A6500 zu wuchtig und schwer.
Das Objektiv war als Alternative zu meinem Sony SEL-50M28 Makro Objektiv gedacht, abgesehen von der Brennweite sind beide ebenbürtig in guter Bildqualität und mässiger Autofokus-Perfomance, auch eine Bildstabi haben beide nicht. Ich muss mich wohl mit Sonys 90mm Makro anfreunden.
The lens is everything I hoped for and more... difficult to learn and takes some experimentation, but extremely rewarding.
As others have mentioned AF is slow but that Is not much of an obstacle if like most you go manual for macro.
Brilliant value for money and highly recommended.
Ich bin ein Hobby Fotograf.
.... fang mal mit dem Negativen an: der AF bei Sigma Objektiv, pumpt etwa 2-3 sec. hin und her bis er Scharfstellt (Nachstellung) und laut ist er auch noch.
Sony Objektiv, ist zwar leise 🤫 aber AF ist genau so langsam vie bei Sigma.
Positiv: Alles außer AF Geschwindigkeit
Die Bilder von Sigma haben mich umgehauen, SCHARF und DETAILLIERT!!!! Als beim Sony.
Sony Ob. ist doppelt so teuer 😉
Bei Manuellen Einstellungen fand ich Bilder Tick Schärfe, bei Beiden.
Mein Favorit ist der Sigma Objektiv!!!
Das Bokeh ist sehr ruhig und ausgeglichen.
Die Bedienung ist sehr einfach von diesem Objektiv.
Das das Objektiv keinen Stabilisator hat macht mir nichts aus weil mein Sensor der Kamera Stabilisiert ist.
Die Gegenlichtblende ist eigentlich recht ordentlich gemacht, ist aber für mich zu lang, so dass das Objektiv nicht mehr ohne Umstecken der Blende hochkant in die Fototasche passt. Ich habe sie deshalb durch eine 20mm lange Gegenlichtblende ersetzt. Mit den umgerechnet 105mm Brennweite an meiner Sony ist das Objektiv mit seiner 2,8er Öffnung gut als Portraitobjektiv nutzbar. Nur für Pilz- u. ä. Makroaufnahmen werde ich mein Sony 3,5 30mm vermissen, weil man mit 105mm ewig Grashalme und anderes im Aufnahmeweg hat. Da werde ich wohl häufiger das Samyang12mm einsetzen, das mit 18cm Minimalabstand auch für Nahaufnahmen gut geeignet ist und bei Blende 8 eine tolle Tiefenschärfe hat.
Das Objektiv hat leider kein Stabilisator, was an der Sony 6500 mit eingebauten 5-Achs-Stabi kein größeres Problem ist. Mit Stabi wäre das Sigma wohl noch schwerer geworden. Mit den genannten Einschränkungen kann ich das Sigma 70mm 1:2,8 DG Macro sehr empfehlen.
Einziger Malus. Der Autofokus ist nicht so der bringen. Andererseits bin ich eh der Meinung das man als "echter Fotograf" mehr den MF nutzen sollte. Aber darüber lässt sich streiten.
The AF works fantastically at close and father ranges. It the AF settings also helps for quicker accuracy when necessary
the image quality is absolutely stellar - this is the far better value deal over the Sony in my opinion
oh yeah, and the external focusing reach is completely negligible, it's a still a beautiful lens that will get the job done beyond your expectations - for a fraction of the cost.
The images are clear and sharp.
The autofocus could be quicker but that is important for those shooting insects etc
I focus on flora and fauna itself.
Therefore I highly rate the price-quality of this lens in combination with the a6400.
