I celebrated my birthday this weekend. I was a very lucky girl and my family – knowing how much time I spend with my camera gifted me money to go towards the Sigma 105mm 2.8 Macro.
I had wanted this lens since first getting a DSLR so today was a big day 🙂
We had planned to go on an outing to Wymondham but the with the rain being so on/off we decided to stay in. But with a macro lens rainy days in can mean endless fun and creativity!
I’m certainly looking forward to the next rainy day! And getting outside to explore the world of texture.
I chose the 105mm 2.8 specifically because it’s also a great portrait lens. I have an idea for a portrait project but not the confidence yet. So a bit more research and practical exercises are in order.
Once I’ve had a decent amount of time with the lens I will do a review post. But I will quickly say, to anyone considering a macro, give Sigma serious consideration, these lenses are epic!
