The Sigma 50mm F2.8 EX DG Macro camera lens is Sigma's smallest and most affordable option within its macro line. Focusing down to a 1 to 1 ratio of magnification at its closest working distance of 7.4 inches, the lens has been designed for use with full frame digital SLR cameras. It also features a super multi-layer lens coating which reduces both flare and ghosting. Comes with a lens hood as well as front and back lens caps.
