Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC Macro Samples

Sigma 18-50 mm F2.8 EX DC Macro

Not too long ago, we mentioned Sigma’s update to their popular 18-50 f/2.8, the Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC Macro. Still with the very useful constant f/2.8 aperture, this new lens sports the “macro” designation which I suspect is inherited from the just as good Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC Macro, a lens I’ve been shooting with for several months now.

We were able to find a good gallery of photos taken with the Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC Macro over at PBase and I must say I’m very impressed. The constant f/2.8 is something I’d love though swapping the 17-70 for this would also mean a significant loss in zoom reach. If only Sigma had better QA and build their lenses consistently, this lens should be another popular model. We should see as it reaches more early buyers.
