Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
The Sigma 105mm f2.8 DG DN Macro Art is the first macro lens for Sigma’s DN-series of lenses designed specifically for mirrorless cameras with Sony E-mount and Leica L-mount. The lens focuses in around 0.7 sec from infinity to 1.24m (1:10 magnification), which is OK. Focus accuracy and repeatability is critical to consistently produce sharp shots.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
  • Fully automatic autofocus
  • Compatible with Sony E-mount and Leica L-mount
Cons
  • Occasional focus breathing
  • No teleconverters

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
Even on a camera with a superb autofocus system, the 105mm takes a bit of time to drive across its entire range. Close-up and distant-only settings are available, as well as a full-range option. The lens projects a life-size (1:1) image of a subject onto your camera's sensor.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
  • Excellent autofocus
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • No manual focus
  • No optical stabilization
