Review of Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS

A perfect entry level macro lens

Advantages: Fantastic, clean, sharp images, good build quality, almost silent AF
Disadvantages: I wish I'd have bought the 100mm!

Review of Sigma EX macro lens - 105 mm F/2.8 for Nikon F

Sigma EX macro lens - 105 mm F/2.8

Advantages: value for money (compared to pro level), build quality,
Disadvantages: makes you think your a pro, but by its nature, proves you otherwise.

This sigma lens is often a favourite starting point for digital SLR users (single lens reflex) looking to upgrade the 'kit' package they bought on impulse in the January sales. "I know, I've got a million pix of my children and cat, now I'll photograph ...
