Name of Award : TIPA Awards 2007 Best Expert Lens
Product : SIGMA MACRO 70mm F2.8 EX DG
The Sigma Macro 70mm F2.8 EX DG lens has been awarded the prestigious title of TIPA 2007 Best Expert Lens. TIPA said of the lens ‘Sigma has used a very simple optical design, but has developed and included two decisive ingredients – a group of floating elements and the new SML multiple surface coating. The result is an excellent macro lens that’s purpose-built for D-SLRs with APS-C sized sensors. And there’s more: chromatic aberration is absent, distortion and vignetting are invisible, and the optics achieve a 1:1 reproduction ratio at the minimum focusing distance of 25cm. A great reference lens at an affordable price.’
