Last Chance to save $300 on the Sigma 105mm Macro, Deal Ends Today.

By Anthony Thurston on May 31st 2014

The Sigma 105mm Macro lens is one of my favorite macros lenses out there. It may not be one of their new Global Vision lenses, but it is incredibly sharp and built very well. I also happen to like the style. Overall, it’s a great lens.

For a limited time, basically the rest of today (until 11:59pm EST), it is also one of the best deals that you can find on a macro lens like this. After an awesome $300 savings, you can grab this bad boy for a mere $669 from B&H. That is a CRAZY good deal on a stellar lens by all accounts.

    Would love to see a review, the macro lens is one that i might not use very often so a 3rd party lens might be a great option for me.

    How does it compare to canon’s version?

      I have not compared them directly side by side, so I can’t say for sure, but I feel that that it holds up well against the Canon.

      The lenses are virtually identical in sharpness and CA, but Canon’s AF is faster.
      Canon is weather-sealed; Sigma is not.
      Canon has a(n optional) tripod collar; Sigma does not.
      Canon’s front filter thread is 67mm; Sigma’s is 62mm.
      Canon closes to f/32; Sigma closes to f/22.
      Canon is $899 until July 5; Sigma is $669 until midnight.

      It is a really, really, sharp lens that I do think works as a great alternative to Canon’s. It does focus slower than the Canon, though.

      Pretty much all of what Paul says is spot on.
