To maintain high optical performance from infinity to close-up 1:1 (life-size) macro photos without accessories, the new Sigma 50mm f/2.8 EX incorporates a "floating" element focusing system.

Designed as a quick-focusing macro lens the AF speed of 50mm, f/2.8 EX Macro is 1.4 times faster than previous 50mm f/2.8 macros. It features a non-rotating front lens group which makes it easier to work with polarizing filters and has a focus limiter to simplify macro focusing(eg. Full Range; ? - 9.8 in.; 9.1 in. - 7.4 in.).

The Sigma 50mm f/2.8 EX Macro lens also features the new deluxe EX external finish.

A handy screw type metal sunshade makes it easier to rotate a polarizing filter.

"A top-notch 50mm macro lens at an attractive price. "
