Retail S$668.00

This medium telephoto macro lens offers a high level of optical performance and is ideal for both digital SLR and 35mm film SLR cameras.

The advent of digital SLR's requires optimum lens performance and therefore the very latest optical technology has been incorporated in the production of the new medium telephoto macro lens.
The 70mm focal length gives an equivalent field of view to our popular 105mm macro lens when used on digital SLR cameras with an APS-C size image sensor. The design of this lens makes it suitable for taking pictures in all situations both with natural light conditions or flash.

An easy to use 70mm medium telephoto macro lens

This lens has an equivalent field of view of a 105mm telephoto macro lens when used on digital SLR cameras with an APS-C size image sensor. The narrow angle of view is a great aid for simplifying backgrounds and the shallow depth of field aids composition. The greater working distance of this lens is very advantageous when taking pictures of flowers (sentence duplicated) among moving branches or highly sensitive insects.

Compensate for color aberration

A Special Low Dispersion (SLD) lens and two high refractive index SLD lenses provide excellent correction for all types of aberration- and produce an exceptional level of optical performance.

No Super Multi-Layer Coating

Sigma's super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting, and helps create a natural color balance.

Floating Focus System

The floating focus system provides extremely high optical performance from infinity to 1:1 Macro.

Focus Limiter Switch

A 'Focus Limiter Switch' is incorporated in the lens, improving the speed and accuracy of autofocus by limiting the focus range between 25.7cm to 48cm and 55cm to infinity.

A screw-in lens hood

A screw-in lens hood is included for convenient use of circular polarizing filters. A screw-in lens hood (LH620-01) is included and is designed to accept a 77mm lens front cap.

MACRO 70mm F2.8 EX DG lens is awarded TIPA 2007 Best Expert Lens

tipa awards

The Sigma Macro 70mm F2.8 EX DG lens has been awarded the prestigious title of TIPA 2007 Best Expert Lens. TIPA said of the lens 'Sigma has used a very simple optical design, but has developed and included two decisive ingredients - a group of floating elements and the new SML multiple surface coating. The result is an excellent macro lens that's purpose-built for D-SLRs with APS-C sized sensors. And there's more: chromatic aberration is absent, distortion and vignetting are invisible, and the optics achieve a 1:1 reproduction ratio at the minimum focusing distance of 25cm. A great reference lens at an affordable price.'

EISA EUROPEAN MACRO LENS 2007-2008 AWARD

The Sigma Macro 70mm F2.8 EX DG lens was awarded this prestigious title because it is suitable for both macro and portraiture photography, Sigma's 70mm F/2.8 EX DG Macro displays an unusual level of optical quality, whether used at maximum magnification (1:1) or at normal distances. Despite a highly affordable price it combines outstanding sharpness with low distortion and minimal vignetting. It is an excellent choice for the connoisseur, as well as for the eager amateur seeking good value for money.

* The EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) awards are chosen annually by panels representing nearly 50 prominent Photo, Video, Audio, Home Theater and Mobile Electronics magazines from over 18 European countries. All Panels work separately, but are under contract to the European Imaging & Sound Association.

The new DG UV filters benefit from a super multi-layer lens coating developed to counteract the highly reflective characteristics of digital image sensors reducing both flare and ghosting. Black rimmed glass eliminate unnecessary internal reflections. The Sigma EX DG range comprises UV filters, which not only reduce ultraviolet light but are ideal for protecting the lens during general photography.

SIGMA DG WIDE CIRCULAR PL 62mm

UPC Code : 00-85126-92383-9

The new Circular PL filters benefit from a super multi-layer lens coating developed to counteract the highly reflective characteristics of digital image sensors reducing both flare and ghosting. Black rimmed glass eliminate unnecessary internal reflections. Circular Polarizing (CP) filters which eliminate reflections from subject such as glass and water and deepen the intensity of blue skies. The range of CP filters, with the exception of 86mm, 95mm and 105mm, is encased within ultra-thin metal ring that does not cause vignetting with wide-angle lenses. Each of these Sigma EX DG filters is designed to accept the front cap of the lens.
