Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO Lens for Canon Cameras

B&H # SI5015028CA Mfr # 692-101

Product Highlights
  • 80-240mm (equivalent) Lens for APS-C
  • Fast Maximum Aperture of f/2.8
  • Optical Image Stabilization
  • Multi-Layer Coating Reduces Flare
  • Quiet, High-Speed Autofocus
  • Inner Focusing and Inner Zooming System
  • SLD Glass Elements Reduce Aberrations
  • 9-Blade Diaphragm For Good Bokeh

The 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO Lens for Canon Cameras from Sigma is a fast f/2.8 telephoto zoom lens with a 50-150mm focal length (80-240mm equivalent in 35mm format) designed for cameras with a Canon EF mount. This long autofocus telephoto gets you close to the action, and it has an optical image stabilization system that makes it possible to hand-hold the lens at up to four shutter speeds slower than usual, while maintaining sharp, shake-free images. The Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) gives you quiet, high-speed autofocus, and also allows full-time manual focus override.

Six SLD glass elements help prevent chromatic aberrations, and provide excellent image quality throughout the zoom range. Super Multi Coating on the glass surfaces reduces flare and ghosting, and helps ensure high-contrast images. The 9-blade diaphragm gives a very pleasing quality to the out-of-focus areas of your photos (generally known as bokeh). A built-in tripod collar provides a solid mount when it's placed on a tripod.

      Comments about Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO Lens for Canon Cameras:

      This lens is everything and all that the good reviews promise! Tack sharp, fast focusing and large. I bought this a year ago as a compliment to my 17-55 Canon 2.8 and couldn't be happier. I am now set thru 17-150 on my crop 7D. I have since purchased the Canon 85mm 1.8 for portraits and can honestly say this autofocuses better (quicker and sharper!). Seriously sharp pics from a great telephoto! When manually focusing the 85 blows the Sigma away, but I suspect this is due more to the speed (1.8 v 2.8) of the lens than the quality of optics. I love this lens...if you are not worried about the weather sealing then buy this lens NOW! The Canon 70-200 MII is great...but this lens is definetlly just as great at half the cost...all it lacks is the weather sealing. I've attached a couple of pics taken today that show how crisp this lens is with auto focus enabled. Planes flying over a thousand feet up over 500mph and this is what this lens can do on auto!

      Comments about Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO Lens for Canon Cameras:

      This has been a great addition to my Sigma 18-35 f1.8 lens. With these two lenses I can cover news, corporate and many TVC's. It is very sharp throughout the range and has a very smooth manual zoom ring for video use. The weight and size are no issue for me. I was all Nikon but have now switched most lenses to Sigma. I like the way Sigma's focus in the "right" direction.

      One thing; when shooting into the sun or bright lights the flaring is terrible. For that reason I have kept my Nikon 80-200 which blows the Sigma away in high flare conditions. But for 90% of work the Sigma 50-150 is a great great lens.

      Comments about Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO Lens for Canon Cameras:

      I have a Sigma 17-50 f2.8, Canon 100mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 10-20mm, Sigma 150-500mm, and Rokinon fisheye 8mm. So needed a lens between 50mm and 100mm or a little more. This lens is the right one, specially for the f2.8 aperture. I'm not interested in others lenses like Canon 18-135mm, i want a luminous lens.
      With this lens i can take beautiful portraits shots, and general shots when you need longs focal lengths. I like the results, the sharpness, the AF, etc. I think i will have good results for events, weddings, etc.
      The only cons i found is this size.

      Comments about Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO Lens for Canon Cameras:

      This lens is great. I use it mostly for sports and moving nature photos (bees, animals, and birds that are constantly in motion) and the occasional artsy bokeh shot. It focuses fast and the pictures come out great. It looks smooth and feels good in hand. The zoom is sufficient, and for my purposes I'm not losing anything that I would gain from a 70-200- that's fairly personal though, as the sports I shoot I'm generally close to- running, baseball.
      If I had to pick a negative about the lens I would just say the weight, but if you're buying a lens with this zoom and speed and not expecting some weight you might be in some trouble.

      Comments about Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO Lens for Canon Cameras:

      Having purchased the 17-50 2.8 Sigma lens a few months ago, I was both excited and cautious about shelling out the same money I spent on my Canon 70D body. Excited because the amazing image quality and stabilization features of the 17-50 had served me well in my video and photography work, but nervous because of some of the problems I had with the lens (namely the useless manual focus ring and the shoddy lens hood).I was pleasantly surprised to see that Sigma has stepped up their game considerably when it comes to their bundled accessories. The included lens hood clicks home with a satisfyingly firm "thunk" and the tripod color is a clever design of solid metal. Both the rings are pleasing to operate, with the wider zoom ring butter-smooth and the focus providing more resistance to keep you from casually brushing it out if focus while hand operating.The plastic used to form the lens is topnotch. The 50-150 feels like a study, quality product throughout the barrel - which it should considering its considerable three pound heft. The optics produce bright, bold colors and a creamy bokeh, and the autofocus is fast and near silent. Stabilization is apparent when it kicks in both with a dampened clunk from someone where within the lens as well as by a jarring kick through the viewfinder - while not subtle, it works well enough to give you 2 or 3 full stops.On my 70D, the lens is the equivalent of an 80-240 and I find that range almost good enough to be an all-around lens. When paired with the 17-50 2.8, I have a kit small and light enough to carry on my back all day, even with shotgun and wireless mics.And as good as the lens is for photography, it may be even better for video. The tripod collar is reassuringly secure and balances my 70D almost perfectly, making the kit a joy to use on a monopod or tripod.To sum it up: If I was given the choice among my current kit to take along only one lens, I would bring my Sigma 50-150 every time without hesitation. It is just that good.

        Comments about Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO Lens for Canon Cameras:

        My wife uses the latest Canon 70-200 on her 5D. She lent it to me to try on my 7D and I was blown away by the image quality,but the focal length was too narrow on the short end. I rented the Sigma 50-150 and found the image quality as good as the Canon, while the focal length was much more suitable for my 7D. I immediately decided to buy it. And it's half the price! It's well balanced,very sturdy, focuses quickly and produces images that are just superb. This is the perfect everyday lens for a crop sensor camera. We took pictures at an airshow, and at 150mm, I was able to crop the images so they filled the entire frame and every letter on the planes was super sharp, and this was from over 1000 feet away. I also took closeups of planes on the ground, with equally satisfying results. We took pictures under a hot sun for over two hours and I never felt the lens was too heavy. I find no fault with this lens, and feel it has improved the performance of my 7D immeasurably.

        Great L series alternative!!

        By Toddkny

        from New York

        Comments about Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO Lens for Canon Cameras:

        I originally purchased the canon L series lens without image stabilization and returned it for this one.
        Needless to say the price difference is a huge plus. Looking past the dollar savings this lens is everything you need it to be.
        I use this for sports photography. For both I for and outdoor. The 2.8,works great for those darker days and when indoor isn't perfect. The image stabilization works perfectly and helps when you are pulling in on subjects that are moving quickly. My main sporting shoots consist of men's and women's soccer teams, crew and hockey.
        I was unsettled regarding his purchase with the main concern being the client not seeing a canon lens. After my first shoot with this lens I had no more worries . My clients are more then pleased and the quality and versatility of this lens still amazes me. I will be purchasing another sigma lens very shortly due to the performance of this lens.

          Comments about Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO Lens for Canon Cameras:

          I purchased this lens last week, and although I have not had a ton of time to use it yet, I love what I've seen so far. This lens offers nearly all the benefits of much more expensive lenses like the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS for a fraction of the price. Although it does not have the same 200mm reach, I actually think this Sigma lens has greater versatility than the popular 70-200 lenses, especially at the wide end. It is perfect for crop sensors.

          The OS works VERY well, which only furthers the versatility of this lens.

          I have not had the opportunity to shoot any fast action activities, so I can't give a complete opinion on the speed and accuracy of the AF. However, in normal shooting, AF appears accurate, fast, and produces sharp images.

          My one criticism is the weight. At nearly 3 pounds, your arm will get tired (which makes the OS even more useful as your arms will start to get shakey after extended use).

          I have been skeptical of Sigma lenses in the past as their quality control seemed to be suspect at times. Reviews of equivilent Canon, Tamron, and Sigma lenses always seemed to have Sigma trailing the other two brands. HOWEVER, with the 50-150mm f/2.8 OS, Sigma seems to have found its stride.

          Solid build
          Nice focus (although I shoot mainly manual focus)
          Great optics...very sharp.
          Color/contrast better than Canon models IMO.
          Bokeh... excellent!

          Nice for portraits as well.

          If you are in the market for a great macro lens... do hesitate to give the Sigma 150mm a try. I've owned the Canon 100mm macro and the Sigma 180mm macro version 1. The Sigma 150mm is a great fit right between the two. Better color/contrast/bokeh and the the Canon 100mm macro IMO. Right on par with the Sig 180.

          Well worth the investment.

                I am basically trading my Canon 70-200 F/4 for this f/2.8 lens, being as I can ebay it for the same price. I shot the two lenses wide open and the Sigma looks as sharp and the 2.8 really brightens indoor shots at the same ISO. The lens is very heavy, but balances nicely. You really hold the lens and the camera hangs off the back.It feels very steady even zoomed to 150mm. I think this zoom range will be handier on my APS-C sensor cameras.

                Comments about Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO Lens for Canon Cameras:

                I rarely write product reviews but am truly impressed with this lens and its value. I don't get paid to shoot so the Cannon L is a rational purchase for me. This however is exactly what I need and at a price that is very reasonable for the quality. I have no doubt I would love the construction (weather sealing especially), performance, feel and IQ of the Cannon, but it's just too dear a price. The Sigma image quality is really outstanding, as is the focus speed and accuracy; especially with OS in the off position. I shoot a lot of bike racing with riders come at me at high closing speeds and the focus performance of this lens when used with my Canon 60D in servo and 5fps is very good (approx. 80%). Really my only niggle is the location of the zoom ring, it's fairly far outboard compared to the Canon and other lens I've either used or considered and while this is in no way a deal breaker, it does take some getting used to and changes the system balance in hand. In short this is a very sharp lens with outstanding IQ and a price that makes it a no brainer for those that don't get paid to shoot.

                My friend bought the same exact one for Nikon and his had some back focusing issues. Mine was perfect from the start. Used it to cover a couple of events and it has been great!

                  The only con I have for this lens is the size but the IQ more then makes up it :)
                  It took me a long time to decide get this lens, I have the older 50-150 hsm II that I have used for a few years and though it was a good lens. I was not sure about the increased size but after more then a few very good reviews I pulled the trigger and very glad I did.

                  I find the focus on this lens to be very good, it works great every time. This was not the case with the older version.

                  I picked up the Sigma EX DG 2x extender at the same time and I find that at 150mm the the new lens with the 2x is sharper then the old lens with out an extender.

                  I am very happy with this lens :)

                        This lens is heavy but built well and the pictures turn out nice!

                          I use this lens for my wedding, portrait and night shootings. This is a wonderful lens. I put my all other lenses aside since I bought this lens. I go every where with it. I don't have any negativity about it so far!

                            Comments about Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM APO Lens for Canon Cameras:

                            I've been studying photography for while and have just started getting into it in a serious manner. I have decided to stick to crop sensors, mainly for the weight difference and to not start from scratch (as most of my gear is suited to my Canon 60D. which I love). Also, for more range in my frame I'll just use my Canon 17-55mm 2.8.That being said, I find this to be the perfect lens for this range. The image quality is tack sharp even at 2.8. It is pretty awesome to have a quality zoom lens with f2.8.. let me tell you. It's extremely silent, quick to focus, and comfortable. While the build is predominantly plastic, it is extremely well built. The zoom ring is smooth and large, and the focus ring is well placed. I tested out this lens, as well as the Sigma 70-200 and the Tamron 70-200. The fact is that this one outperformed the other Sigma significantly. The Tamron, while slightly more solid, cost $500 more... did I mention this lens is f2.8! For that price, you might as well empty your pockets and bring out the big guns for the Canon lens.All-in-all, this lens is fantastic. I could see that people might opt for the 70-200 for the greater range, but if you are sporting a crop sensor camera and do not plan on "going full frame" any time soon, this is the closest you'll get to that actual focal length (70-200).The only critique is that its a bit heavy, but that's expected.

                            Was a little hesitant to purchase this lens over a Canon lens but I already have the Sigma 17-50 2.8 lens so the 50-150 is the perfect compliment to it. Seems very sharp from 50-150 and it is nice to have the fast lens. It is a little heavy but that was expected. Perfect for my Canon 60D.
