Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art Review
Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art Sharpness at 70mm
For these sharpness tests the Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art lens was attached to a Canon EOS 5DS R body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session.
The full frame at 70mm
The centre is very sharp, even wide-open at f/2.8, with peak performance achieved in the f/4-f/11 range. Diffraction is only really noticeable at f/22.
The edges are slightly soft at f/2.8, sharpening up sufficiently at f/4, with f/5.6-f/11 the optimum aperture range.
