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.

is this an art lens for sure?

because sigma teased somehow that they're working on a new telephoto DC DN lens a few days ago..

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.
