Overview

The APO Macro Sigma 180mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is a high performance telephoto macro lens designed for Full Frame sensors but may also be used with smaller APS-C size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 260mm with most cameras. The 180mm F2.8 has a large aperture to handle any lighting scenario and the macro capabilities allow focusing down to 1:1 magnification ratio at its closest working distance of 18.5 inches. A Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) ensures quiet, high speed, and accurate autofocusing while an Optical Stabilizer (OS) compensates for camera shake when shooting hand held. The 180mm F2.8 macro also incorporates a floating Internal Focusing system which reduces aberration during shooting working together with three FLD ("F" Low Dispersion) glass elements for superior correction of color aberration. This lens has a rounded 9 blade diaphragm creating an attractive blur to the out of focus areas of the image and is also compatible with Sigma APO teleconverters.

In the studio I shoot a lot with the 70-200mm because I can continually change my cropping without having to move back and forth. Just by zooming in and out and by using the rotating collar I can compose vertical and horizontal compositions. This image was shot at f6.3 1/125 iso100 at 180mm.

The Sigma 180mm f/2.8 macro lens did a good job in capturing this fast moving subject considering macro lenses are known to be slow in focusing thus making this lens a versatile lens. I paired this lens with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

APO Macro 180mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/160 sec F32 800

I often visit gardens on conservatories to photograph flowers.  Most of the time, they do not allow tripods, so I just use my twin flashes or a ring light as this allows me to achieve the depth of field I want and still let me hand hold.  I walked through the conservatory full of many hibiscuses and settled on the one as the petals were on the same focal plane as the stigma.  Having the flash units at the front of the lens allows me to get very tight on my subjects.

APO Macro 180mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/100 sec F29 800

Rainy days are great for macro photography and I often visit gardens on conservatories when the weather forecast calls for just such conditions.  Most of the time, they do not allow tripods, so I love using my twin flashes or a ring light so that I can hand hold.  I was photographing inside the conservatory while it was raining heavily but quickly went outside to the water lily ponds as soon as the rains subsided.  The extra reach of the 180mm really came in handy as I strained at the edge of the pond to compose this beautiful bloom in the middle of the pond.  There were many other leaves around the lily that weren’t pretty so the extra length allowed me to compose tightly on the center without falling in!

Roman Kurywczak

Rainy days are great for macro photography but on this visit to the conservatory the weatherman was very wrong!  I wasn’t going to turn back home after driving for over 2 hours so I decided to make the best of it.  After photographing inside the conservatory for a while where the light was more diffused, I went out to the water lily pools to see what I could do even with the sunny conditions.  I under exposed the ambient light by about 1 stop and  powered my twin flashes up about 1 stop creating a balance of flash and ambient light. The extra reach of the 180mm again came in handy to allowing me to isolate this beautiful bud, bloom, and leaf in the middle of the pond.  The water is black because the gardens dye the water to keep the algae bloom in check.

Review by JohnE
Posted on 6/28/2018
Outstanding
I own a number of Sigma lenses and use them on Nikon D500s and a Nikon D850. I use my gear hard and value build quality and weather sealing. The build quality and weather sealing of this lens is not the same as the 120-300 F2.8 or the 150-600 Sport. This lens while large it not overly heavy for that size and no where as heavy as the two lenses mentioned. The image quality achieved with this lens is outstanding and up to the needs of the D850. The use of a true macro lens requires a slightly different skill set than other types of photography. This lens serves well for purposes a 180mm prime would as well as its macro capability. I wish the tripod mounting foot was longer and further from the lens body. The color controls seem unique in my experience and take a little getting use to. The use of a tripod and/or monopod in macro photography is a frequent element of the process and more attention to the design of the tripod mount would have been appreciated. That and the lack of weather sealing are the only thing keeping me from giving this the fifth star. From an image quality and general quality perspective this lens is a winner. I looked at a lot or macro lenses before selecting this lens and I am very pleased with my selection and strongly recommend this lens.
