WOW now I really have to get a macro lens. And it's nice to see result made with a canon 40d since I have the same camera ! That lens is really sharp I never had a look at sigma before all my lens are canon but after seeing those result I will have a look for sure at sigma ! Thx again for the great photo ! Now it's going cost me money again ! LOL

Thanks for commenting JDArt and Canon40D,, yes the Sigma makes a great macro lens, so does the Canon though too, there are things I like about the Canon to consider, the Canon doesnt extend when focusing, the Sigma does, however its not a major issue since your closest working distance is around 10-12", with the Canon you can push the shutter halfway to focus then manually focus from there with the focus ring, with the Sigma you have a switch to go between manual/auto focus, again not a major issue since 99% of the time I manual focus anyway, one point in Sigma's corner is it was about $100.00 cheaper than the Canon, which is why I bought the Sigma, optically they are about the same, just some things to consider when choosing a new macro lens,, Thanks again for commenting
