  • Sigma 180mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharpness, effective OS, flare resistance, colours

    The lens design is without compromise. There are no optical defects, only biting sharpness at all apertures. The optical stabilization (OS) is extremely effective. I think of this lens as a 180mm focal length prime that happens to focus close. I chose this lens over any of the 70-200 variants. Despite being a prime, I find this lens exceedingly versatile and use it for landscape, portraiture, street photography and macro. I would buy it again and highly recommend it.
