Finally Sigma is updating their Macro lineup. Was waiting for Canon to launch an EF 60mm macro but now Sigma providing a good option for macro shooters. Whats worrying is that there is no focus scale and not sure if it will be weather sealed.

I'm glad to see a new macro lens but I'd have preferred a new 150mm Macro Lens.
I'm not sure what 70mm was picked.
50mm would have had a more all round use.
70mm for APS-C market?
I tend to find 70mm neither here not there as a focal length to work with.
Maybe its good for food / product photography.

The Sigma 150mm Macro with OS is a very nice lens. No need for replacement, but this new 70mm will be good for food photography and product shots.

Besides being 70mm, but what will make this special?  2X?  f/1.8?  If both, I'm interested.

Not every new Sigma lens has to be "special" in some way. This one only has to be a nice sharp competitively-priced 70mm f/2.8 1:1 macro lens.

I have to agree.  I think my desire for a sharp 2:1 macro manifested itself.

With this announcement, it is not too surprising that the 105mm macro is $400 off.

New images have been posted and that lens still has extending barrel like old model. Quite a bit of disapointment since Nikon has been offering a Af-s 60mm Macro with weather sealing and internal focus since 2008.

Please post a link or images.  My Milvus 100 extends, so I can't complain about Sigma doing the same.

No OS or HSM on the lens barrel, either...hmm.

I personally like to have lenses internally focus as there has been ingress of water drops while have used my camera in Western ghats. Its just personal prefrence based on the weather of my favourite place on earth to visit for macro photography.

Thank you!  So it does have AF.  And a 49mm filter?

at least it doesn't extend more than the hood..
and that focus limiter would be useful for normal shooting but OS would have been awesome in a macro lens

Yes looks like it, but now a days 49mm filter thread is more common as more and more manufacturers are using it unlike in old days when it was predominantly Pentax who used it.

But the old version has a 62mm filter, as does the Laowa 60mm f/2.8 2X.  If the images are accurate, then there is an implication here that I do not have the knowledge to fathom.
