Sigma 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro

How does this lens not have a thread yet? I guess I'll get it started...

I was surprised too.

Here's a macro of a candle flame at f2.8.

As I recall I had the lens on extension for this one, probably 25mm (de-glassed 2x TC). It's a thistle flower.

One of the things I like about this lens it's that it's easier to hand hold than my DA 100 and it still gets sharp photos.

This is from a windy day at the Chicago gardens.

I've had quite a few Sigma lenses, but never one as good as this......
