High performance, large aperture medium telephoto macro lens with OS (Optical Stabilizer)

The SIGMA MACRO 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is a large aperture medium telephoto macro lens that allows you to maintain an appropriate distance from subjects while still getting close up photos. Since the working distance at its closest focusing position is 142mm, shadows of the lens and camera will not affect photography making it suitable for taking photos of subjects, such as flowers, under natural lighting conditions. The main subjects can be defined with perfectly smooth and blurred backgrounds. It is a high-performance lens with OS (Optical Stabilizer). The SLD glass construction provides good control of aberration and the floating inner focus system ensures high rendering throughout the focusing range.  HSM ensures a quiet and high-speed AF as well as full-time manual focus override. By using Sigma’s APO Tele Converter, it is possible to take photos at greater than 1:1 magnification.
