Blunty3000 covers the basics of Macro Lenses and puts the “Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM” Macro lens through it’s review paces on a Canon 60D to see how well it performs.
(Sigma lenses are also available in mounts compatible with Nikon and Sigma’s own lens system of course)
Sample photos and video was shot on location by Blunty in the Royal Botanical gardens in Hobart Tasmania on a recent trip.

This isn’t a “How-to”, but more “what can a Macro do that a standard prime can’t” thing. Frankly, I’m not anywhere near accomplished or experienced enough in macro photography to presume to tell others “how to do macro Photography”.
The sigma 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro, is designed for use with full frame digital SLR cameras but can also be used with with APS-c size sensors or “crop sensors” too.
