A good macro lens is one of the most versatile optics a photographer can own, enabling you to take highly detailed shots, but also being a great option for sharp portraits and more. This fantastic video review takes a look at the new Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro Art lens and features a lot of helpful sample images.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this excellent video review takes a look at the new Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro Art lens. The new lens comes with an array of features, including:

  • One Special Low Dispersion (SLD) element for reduced chromatic aberrations and increased clarity

  • 1:1 maximum magnification with 5.5-inch minimum working distance 
  • Hyper Sonic Motor with full-time manual focus override
  • Focus limiter switch with three zones for increased autofocus speed
  • De-clickable aperture ring for video work with lock switch
  • Customizable autofocus lock button
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • Weather-resistant design

No doubt, the new Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro Art looks to be another winner for the company, and at $799, it is rather affordable. Check out this video above for the full rundown from Frost.
