Latest Review Posted Sigma Macro 28-80mm F3.5-5.6
I used this lense in a PF challenge (SiS), and found it to be an excellent macro lense, but for normal portrait use, very difficult to use. There is little room for error when focusing, as there is only ... say, 15 degrees to play with, which in lower apertures led to some "not pretty stuff!". However Macro mode was quite crisp, and produced fine results. The lense I'm reviewing here is almost identical to this in every respect, except that the rubber focusing ring has shorter grips (S/N 3429160) , not the wider version shown here. In short, a good lense close up, but not a good general purpose I would think. If you want a Macro with other abilities, it's OK, but otherwise, buy a purpose built lense! Cheers Paddy
