Sigma 400mm F5.6 APO telemacro A-mount lens review by RobY
|RobY#1172 date: Sep-5-2006|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I have experience with this lens|
|compared to:||400 APO (Non-macro)|
|price paid:||350 USD (s/h)|
+ Close focus ability
+ Large focus ring
+ Detachable tripod collar
|negative:||- Weight, but to be expected|
- focus in poor light
|comment:||I bought this used (77mm) example after the earlier APO (72mm) version, and for a time had both so I could compare directly. The earlier version suffered more from CA (although it was never bad) but probably was a touch sharper. Focusing was better with this version. |
It is best used on a tripod or monopod (that I use) for the best results.
What options are there if you don't want a zoom?
