This Sigma Macro 50mm F2.8 EX DG is a standard macro lens that is ideal for shooting the “small world’ around us that exists virtually unseen. A macro lens is one which will focus on a subject close enough to render it “life-size” on the image plane in your camera. It also has a “flat” field” front lens element so that it can shoot images of flat objects such as artwork or postage stamps and be tack sharp all the way across the image. So don’t miss the tiny insects, flowers of the world or the details in a stamp or coin collection or a piece of embroidery all of which are seldom noticed but offer a fascinating world if you look closely enough. Capture them with the Sigma Macro 50mm F2.8 EX DG

*Nikon Mount: NO built in motor lens: NOT compatible with D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D5000

Reviews

"Weighing only 320g, this is a lightweight lens that could be easily carried around all day ready for when it's needed and at only 66.5mm long, it is quite compact too. The lens barrel is constructed from high quality plastics finished in a smart looking powder coated finish. During use this finish tends to show rub marks easier than other lens finishes, so care may need to be taken to preserve its looks.

"This lens is one of Sigmas EX range, built to withstand much tougher handling than the average and it achieves this well. The matt finish of the range sits well on this simple, uncomplicated lens. On the left, as the lens sits on the camera, is a standard AF/MF switch and forward of this is a focus-limiting switch. This works either side of the 0.25m mark to improve AF times or can be switched off to enable the full focus
