SIGMA 28F1.8 EX DG Macro in da house ( ﾟ ▽ ﾟ)ﾉ
It’s been few months since i last upgraded my gears. And for this particular gear, I was planning to have it in hand by the new year. Unfortunately the stock was depleted and I had to wait for a month. The wait finally paid off as i got it in hand 24hrs ago.
This is my 1st prime lens. Had played with 50F1.8 and 50F1.7 sometime ago, I felt that I too need big F-Stop Aperture that cant be offered by zooms.I chose SIGMA 28F1.8 specifically for the wide angle, FullFrame compatible and the MACRO/small MFD (min focusing distance). 30F1.4 looks tempting too and was in my consideration list, but its not FF compatible and the mfd doubles the 28F1.8.
SIGMA 28F1.8 comes with a pouch to store the lens. Unlike average under 50mm primes, SIGMA primes are somewhat large. 77mm filter thread (￣■￣;)
Below are some of sample shots on my LevanPolka Miku. On the left is a shot from my Tamron 17-50F2.8 @26mm and on the right is 28F1.8.
As you can see at almost identical focal point range of both lens, the prime can get way up close to the subject thanks to the Macro capabilities and short mfd. Yay now I can do figure portraits as well LOL.
And below are some shots of 28F1.8 at different aperture to show what you can expect from the DOF (depth of field).
Cant wait to try this prime on cosplay photography ( ﾟ ▽ ﾟ)ﾉ
