    So, I was wondering what others thought of this lens? Particularly the brand?
    HKSupplies - Sigma 50mm f/2.8 EX DG Auto Focus Macro Lens

    My dream lens is a Nikon 85mm lens that is a macro lens. It's $529. But I can't really afford this lens.
    AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR from Nikon

    The above lens (the sigma) is $299.

    It's "ok" and it gets a pretty good rating here:
    FM Reviews - 50mm f2.8 EX Macro 1:1 Lens

    which is usually a very good indicator.

    My problem with it is as a 50mm, the nikon 50mm 1.8 would be cheaper and better IMHO and as a macro, it's only good not excellent. Certainly I'd prefer the nikon 105mm macro if possible.

    Nit picking really, I think for the price it's a good bet

    Thanks for the link!

    And you know, for this kind of money, I think it's important to look at the small things. I would rather make a wise investment.
