Although I don’t get to do it as much as I’d like, I’m a big fan of close up photography. It is great fun to see the details of small insects, and their tiny world up close.

Look what I found!
Its the 24mm f1.4 Art lens! A highly awaited lens, and so far I’m one of the lucky few to get one. Sigma is struggling to keep up with demand, and many shops run out as soon as they arrive. I got this from Digidirect in Melbourne, they only had two left, and had sold six in two days.
This lens is great for my style of photography, and I look forward to testing it more! A great lens for travel photography.
I hope to complete a full review of the lens soon, once I test it thoroughly. For now though, it feels much like the other Art lenses, which Sigma have released. So far the AF seems pretty good at default settings.
Anyways, more to come.
Here are a few quick snaps from yesterday, all wide open at f1.4:

I’ve just done simple review of the Sigma 180mm 2.8 Macro lens. I’ve owned the lens for about three months now and thought I’d share my thoughts on this great macro lens.
Went to Melbourne zoo with it on the weekend, here’s a couple of shots from the day.
Snake Eye, shot at f3.5 iso 10,000
Butterfly, shot at f5 iso 1600.

Guys I just posted my first lens review!
The Sigma 35mm 1.4 DG HSM Art lens was the first lens Sigma made with their new Global Vision philosophy. The Art range is supposed to consist of premium lenses aimed at photography enthusiasts and professionals. Sigma is one of the more well known 3rd party lens manufacturers, and have provided decent lenses at good prices. This particular lens retails for about 600 bucks less than the Canon EF 35mm 1.4L lens. Unfortunately, Sigma lenses of the past have been flawed by poor AF accuracy, and other QA problems. The Global Vision program vowed to address this problem.
This review is more a field test than a hard-core technical review, there are other websites that will do that much better than here. This review is based on personal experience, having owned the lens for more than two years….
