Has anyone compared this to the Leica R 100mm?

I can't imagine the Sigma to be even sharper than the Leica R 100mm. But the lenses are not comparable. The Leica has a max magnification of 1:2 while the Sigma can do 1:1. The Sigma has autofocus, the Leica does not (how much that matters for macro I don't know...). 

I own the Leica and it's fantastic. But due to AF and me sometimes being lazy I often wonder whether I should also get the Sigma...

I have both lenses. IMO the Leica 100mm is probably one of the best R lenses ever made. The Sigma's possibly very slightly sharper due to the fact that it's designed for mirrorless & possibly some in-camera corrections. There's really nothing in it. 

As for AF, I think you're better off using MF for macro photography anyway.

comparing Apo Elmarit with Sigma 105mm. Both images were stacked in Photoshop. I could use the Elmarit some time ago and are using the 105mm Macro now so different images from different orchids....

Did you find it easier to take a set of images to stack using the APO macro r as compared to the sigma?
