    Hi All,

    I have no idea what is the different Sigma 24-70mm Macro f/2.8 EX DG Macro and Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM? I mean in term of the WORD Macro.

    Can i use Sigma Macro lens like Canon lens? Any diffrent between this 2 besides Price?

    I really hope can received some advice from Si Fu here. Many thank in advance

    MACRO is being used very very loosly by Sigma.

    The min focusing distance is almost the same as the EF version.

    Means they use the term macro quite frequently on their lenses. As long as they deem the focusing distance as close enough, they'll end the name with a macro designation.

    Treat it like a normal lens with some extended capabilities, like being able to perform closeups ie Macro. It is not a true Macro lens per se but unless you have specific needs for a Macro lens, it serves a more general purpose. Treat it as a bonus that may come in handy at times.

    may or may not be, depending on how you shoot.. some would find 24mm on 1.6x bodies (assuming you are using one..) not wide enough..
