A Review of the Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro Art Lens

Macro lenses with short telephoto focal lengths are some of the most useful and flexible optics a photographer can own, giving you access to a world of detail all around us, but also doubling as a fantastic option for tack-sharp portraits and more. The Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro Art offers that versatile combo at a relatively affordable price ($799), and this great video review takes a look at the lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it. 

Coming to you from Stefan Malloch, this excellent video review takes a look at the Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro Art lens. Made of Sony E and Leica L mount, this lens comes with a variety of great features, including: 

  • One Special Low Dispersion (SLD) element for rless chromatic aberrations and improved clarity
  • Super Multi-Layer Coating for less flares and ghosting and deeper contrast
  • 1:1 maximum magnification (5.5-inch minimum focusing distance)
  • Hyper Sonic Motor with full-time manual focus override and 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

Altogether, the 105mm f/2.8 Macro Art looks like an impressive and affordable option. Check out the video above for Malloch's full thoughts on the lens.

I own it. Nothing to claim from technical side. It is just perfect. What I hate it's weight. I am not keen on photographing with it a whole day. To heavy!
