i wish i have this lens.
doing research first before buy lah...
think 105mm may not give me enough working distance.. so wonder if can use a 1.4x tc.
focusing is slow? Is it with HSM or not?

according to the brocher, this lens got no HSM version.
Anyway, for macro and portraits, I think you don't need USM type of speed right?
Reviews in the web is very good. It is said that this is one of the sharpest portrait/macro lens around --- as with all Sigma EX lenses, the value is hard to beat.
Why not enough range? you shooting insect?
If you want range, they got a 180mm macro but I can't remember if it is a f/2.8.
PM me when you have bought either one of them. Good luck
