Pros: Quality of Build; Metal barrel; Sharpness; Optical Stabiliser (though was very noisy on mine); HSM AF; Value, when compared to Nikon's own version; Standard kit, which includes two lenshoods (one for FX, a longer one for DX) and a decent case.

Cons: Weight; Noisy stabiliser (on mine)

Opinion: I bought this fine quality and well respected macro lens in mint condition used - and about a year later sold it back to the same seller (online trader) for only about £50 less. It was to replace an old plastic Tamron SP macro 90mm f2.8, which was very competitive in its sharpness but had an impossibly slow and basic screw-driven AF and no stabilisation. I then found that I could not sell this Tamron (I might have been able to give it away?) in the end and ended up with two macro lenses! The new Sigma was nearly twice the weight of the old Tamron and basically, I never took it anywhere and proved that I just don't do enough macro to justify owning it. IF I could afford to buy one now though, then I'd get the Nikkor 105mm VR, as it is supposedly just a little sharper than the Sigma and would banish the risk of having a really noisy stabilisation system. Or perhaps a new Tamron 90mm VC. (lighter). I did also find the Sigma's fastish f2.8 aperture 105mm on DX (157mm equivalent) to be quite useful to have with stabilisation, for hand-held night shots and live music photography. For now, I'm back to the old plastic Tamron, which does its job, at least. (Focused manually, which is how true macro shots are usually undertaken) However, if you are a true macro user and want a top quality optic, for the money, you cannot lose. As I found out, without a current replacement from Sigma, there is a strong market should you wish or need to sell it back on again, so your risks are low. 9/10

Pros: Optical yield, price

Cons: Not compatible with Sigma Optimization Pro software, a bit plastic construction, not tropicalized, noisy stabilizer and not too effective

Opinion: Optical yield better than the Nikon 105 which costs twice as much. Otherwise better the Nikon. Being a macro lens, where what matters is the optical yield, the cost that is half of the Nikon tends to make it a good alternative purchase. It is a sharper hair than the Nikon at the edges and has fewer chromatic aberrations. The af is as precise and fast as the Nikon (not a lightning without a limiter, but it is a macro lens). It's very annoying that it's not compatible with the Sigma software to calibrate the microregulation based on the distance of maf. With Sigma tc 14 it goes well and is great for moving insects like butterflies. Overall a good product. You can see that the lower cost compared to the Nikon is not only Nital and brand, because compared to the Nikon is clearly built worse and is not tropicalized, but with the money with which you buy this, you buy half Nikon, so in the end it's fine. I sold my Nikon 105 2.8 vr used because it was sated and not recoverable with microregulation af (20 was not enough): as long as I used it on static subjects in live view no problem, but for subjects on the move it became impossible. With the Sigma, I was fine with the broken headphone because "20 compensates perfectly and with tc 14 I just need a .11.

Pros: Sharpness, blurry, double stabilization, price

Cons: Noisy stabilizer, chromatic yield, weight

Opinion: Undoubtedly an exceptional lens for sharpness and blurry, but not suitable for portraits as it needs pp to attenuate the "extreme" effect, the cost is undoubtedly low for a stabilized lens even if in macro the is is serves little, the color yield at least for my exemplary canon attack seemed too micro-contrasted and on the 6D sensor the red and orange colors appear unnatural perhaps makes it better on Nikon sensor because I see extraordinary photos. The stabilizer is effective but damn noisy and sometimes transmits microvibrations to the mirror so much that it perceives it in the crosshairs, that to say is an opticthat that complicit in the weight and what I said I have never loved more than that, at the same cost (used) I would have preferred the counterpart Canon not i.s. P.S. Incredibly my specimen is not compatible with the Sigma MC-11 adapter

Pros: I still dream about it at night

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: I had this lens for 3 years in the set first with a 700d and then with an 80d. The bodies changed her no. I was going crazy. It has no tropicalization, sometimes it produces noises like the fanfare of the targets, but the latter point for my demerits. For the rest, great. At the beginning it took a few shots to take the hand with shooting times and openings, photos that, always for my demerits, were not really beautiful. But then goodbye, used to take pictures of objects, food, flowers, portraits also street, capture small details to the right and missing. Sometimes I used to take him to bed, not my wife. I take pictures out of passion and I'm not a professional but to this day, after years, it's the most beautiful lens I've ever had. Not having her anymore, as written by pros, I still dream at night.

Pros: Sharpness.... Price....

Cons: Noisy stabilizer and opening diaphragm nn constant at 2.8

Opinion: my favorite lens ..... Color yield ... Sharpness..... Price.... does not have a flaw for me For portraits is a blade .... I'll have done nn I know how many photos coupled with the nikond7200 and nn I look forward to trying it with sensor full format Unique flaw maybe it is the stabilizer a little noisy and if nn is set to infinity nn comes to 2.8 as opening but it is only to find the hair in the egg ..... with this lens is also that ahhahahahahahah
