Sigma 105mm OS Macro - Is Canon in the Target Market?
Jun 28, 2011

Given that the Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro is ~2/3rds of the price, what would be the justification to get the new Sigma macro for us? Does it resolve better than the "L" or something?

Yes, Sigma does make these lenses in a Canon mount, but I get the feeling that the real target market is Nikon or their own bodies. (Or Sony soon, I bet.)
