Sigma 180mm f/2.8 APO Macro DG HSM at ~1:2 (Half Life Size, Nikon D800E)

Added my review of the Sigma 180mm f/2.8 APO Macro in DAP is an aperture series at 1:2 (half life size) from f/5 (wide open) to f/32.

Color correction, micro contrast and additional sharpening for f/16 and f/22 are discussed.

Thanks so much for your testing of the new Sigma 180.

I have had the lens since December and use it (along with a Nikon 300 f4) exclusively for butterfly photography.

This morning (after viewing the comparative doll shots) I was SHOCKED to see the performance at f22 – I have been afraid (and never considered) using the lens at such a small aperture.

Your subscription price is a bargain!

DIGLLOYD: Yes, on a D800E, f/22 is best avoided for most purposes. See MTF at f/22 with the Zeiss 135mm f/2 APO-Sonnar.
