I have a Sigma 70 macro as well as the DFA 100 (not WR). I am not sure if the optical formulations are the same or not. They both are capable of superb IQ; however, I give Sigma a very slim edge in sharpness. In normal use, I have never observed meaningful differences, especially that they were never used in overlapping conditions.

Hi Leo James,

I just bought a Sigma 70 Macro and would say the same about this lens. As you have both, I'd like to read your thoughts about both.

As I also do some portrait work with my sigma, my choice was fine for me, but maybe I need one more lens?!

Kind regards & have fun with your new toy
