Sigma 70mm f/2.8 Macro ART Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

July 26th, 2018

Sigma’s first macro lens in the ART series has flown somewhat under the radar, overshadowed by the more flamboyant lens announcements (Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 ART, 105mm f/1.4) along with the announcement of the Sony FE retrofit of the ART series.  Sigma’s approach is a little different from the established conventions in focal length, focus method (the lens focuses externally and employs a focus-by-wire system), and eschews the image stabilization that most modern macro lenses employ.  What they have done, however, is focus on the ART series priority – optical performance – on which the Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro ART definitely excels.  It is extremely sharp at all focus distances.  It also has weather sealing, and, continuing in the delightful trend from the 14-24mm ART, it is fully compatible with Canon’s Lens Aberration Correction (only the second third party lens that this is true of).  Stay tuned for my detailed coverage of the lens and how it performs on a the native Canon mount that I have it in along with how it performs via the Sigma MC-11 adapter on my Sony a7R3 body.  Check out the dedicated Sony gallery below.  Check back often for new images!
