60mm sigma lens

I heard some good things about the sigma 60mm lens; especially at the price [AU$200]. I would also like to know if anyone has used one with an achromatic type close up lens [canon d250] or with extension tubes to some close up to macro photos

any general thoughts/ideas/other options/negatives when used with an EM1 would be appreciated

Re: 60mm sigma lens

I had one with my E-M10 and was amazed how sharp it was...no kidding when I say it was sharper than the Olympus 60mm macro I owned at the same time. I used it to a degree of success with extension rings too. For the price, it's definitely worth a shot IMO.

Re: 60mm sigma lens

I've got one as well. Lovely lens, very sharp. I use it with a set of close-up filters of varying strengths (depending on the subject either a +4 or +6 factor) for macro and I'm pleased with it.

Re: 60mm sigma lens

thanks fellas; will certainly consider one although I hate the thought of breaking my nice simple one lens photography. Luckily the place I will get it from is out of stock lol
