Comments about Sigma Sigma 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Auto Focus Macro Lens for Canon EOS Cameras:

This lense is on my camera most of the time and is an old reliable fave. Excellent color rendition and bokeh. May not work well in tight spaces since you have to stand 12' away to get morr in the frame. Macro shots let you get real close @1:1. [...]

Comments about Sigma Sigma 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Auto Focus Macro Lens for Canon EOS Cameras:

This is an excellent mid-length lens at a fantastic price that works beautifully on my Canon film and digital bodies. Having the optics of a macro and clarity of a non-zoom it is great for macro work (obviously) but also for a general purpose/portrait lens. It has great colour rendition and really well handled depth-of field.

It's an easy lens to handle, with the Limit/Full and AF/MF switches in easy reach and a nice sized barrel that sits well in the hand.

The only gripes are that the the lens hood is a strange beast that screws into the front element but is a larger diameter than the lens cap so when it's on, you can't put on the cap. Also, the Auto focus in macro mode is quite slow ... but then again, do you really want to be using AF in Macro mode?

Overall, this is an excellent lens that is useful for a wide range of macro subjects as well as general purpose and portrait work.
