sigma 105 macro detail

i was in jessops today and had a good look at the sigma 105mm macro and noticed that it said on the side of the lens SIGMA 1:2.8

why is this if this lens is a true 1:1 macro does it say this on the side?

thanks for the help i did ask at jessops but i got look so i said its ok and left

Re: sigma 105 macro detail

That refers to focal length, so f/2.8

If you'd extended the barrel you'd see the markings down it indicating what the magnification was when object focussed - it goes to max of 1:1

Re: sigma 105 macro detail

Ah typical Jessops. A great price for this lens though. £250 or thereabouts. My OH got one as a birthday present and loves it to bits.

Re: sigma 105 macro detail

f2.8 refers to the max aperture, the macro mag is on the extended lens barrel.

If you have to, buy it yourself - it's superb.

I have not been able to play with it yet. Stuck to front of OH's 400d. Not tried it on my 30D.
