I have a deep passion for macro photography. When I got into DSLR photography, I bought the 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG Macro to multitask as my zoom and my macro lens. Lately though, I wanted a more specialized lens for macro photography. With the 70-300mm I have to zoom lens all the to the widest focal length, then switch to macro mode, etc. With the Sigma 70mm F2.8 EX DG Macro, I don’t have to do that. This is why I chose to test it out. So does it make the cut for my photography?

One thing that I have I’ve learned in photography is to always carry a zoom lens. If you shoot photos for fun or you get paid for creating compelling photographs, you will find need for a zoom lens. There are spots you just can’t reach and things you cannot get close to. A zoom lens will afford you that opportunity. Though my Nikon 35mm F1.8 remains my favorite lens and is almost always on my D90, the Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG Macro is by my side often now.
