Macro with the Sigma 60 F2.8
Apr 13, 2014

Just testing out some macro with controlled conditions at home tonight. I found trying this in daylight handheld proved troublesome as i didn't want to stop my lens down so far and i couldn't kill the light otherwise. Perhaps some filters may help.

Sigma 60 with 26mm tubes. Not quite closest focusing range, used tripod + wifi control, Di466 bounce flash. Im very happy with the pixel level performance of this lens and macro is one reason that is important to me. Enjoy and feel free to share. In case anybody is looking for an alternative to a dedicated macro lens, this is a $300 combination and is a great performer.

100% crop.
