Sigma 180mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro review by deej2005
Review Date: 5/31/2013 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $1,700.00| Rating: 10 

Pros: Sharpness, effective OS, flare resistance, colours
Cons: weight

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.
