Overview

WATCH THE VIDEOS

The Sigma 70mm F2.8 DG Macro is the first prime macro lens to be adorned with the Art badge. Fully redesigned to deliver exceptional 1:1 (life-sized) magnification, the 70mm F2.8 DG Macro lens features a new coreless DC motor for extremely smooth autofocus performance. Prioritizing optical performance, the lens features an extending, floating, two-group focus mechanism. This configuration minimizes aberration to produce optimal results at any focus distance.

The Canon EF mount version of the lens is compatible with Canon's Lens Aberration Correction which performs in-camera corrections of peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations, distortion, and more, to further enhance image quality.

Small Fly on Leaf

Stunning shot with new Sigma Art 70mm f2.8 Macro in E-mount. I am blown away by its sharpness and overall image quality. It is solidly built, yet lightweight. Easy to focus in autofocus or manual focus. Focus limiting settings on this lens make quick work of rapid micro autofocusing of moving small subjects . Just a complete pleasure to use. The images are stunning. It is all I could have hoped for at an incredible price. True ART lens IQ.

Amazing, stunning image quality
By gerald w.
I am a pro of over 40 years in the business. I have used excellent macro lenses from Nikon, Canon and Sony. I got this lens just a few days ago and have been test shooting it with both my Sony A7RIII and A7III and am blown away by its sharpness and overall image quality. It is solidly built, yet lightweight. Easy to focus in autofocus or manual focus. Focus limiting settings on this lens make quick work of rapid micro autofocusing of moving small subjects . Just a complete pleasure to use. The images are stunning. It is all I could have hoped for at an incredible price. True ART lens IQ. Highly recommend this in whatever your camera mount is. Cheers
