The Sigma AF 50mm f/2.8 EX macro DG is an excellent lens without any significant optical flaws. Compared to the Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM macro it shows less vignetting at wide-open aperture – other than that both lenses perform quite similar. Mechanically the Canon has an edge though thanks to a fast USM AF drive combined with a true IF design (constant length). However, the Sigma is earns some points due to its lower price tag and a more future-proof full-frame design. As such it can be highly recommended. READ FULL REVIEW

As its name reveals, the Sigma50mm f/2.8 Macro stands out in this six-lens 50mm shootout as the only lens offering Macro capability. Additionally, it delivers sharp (both center and corner) photos over quite a large aperture range f/2.8-22, with little shading and almost zero distortion. It does exhibit mild chromatic aberration. If you don’t need anything more than an f/2.8 maximum aperture, this is clearly an excellent buy. READ FULL REVIEW
