Sigma 150mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

The Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro Lens (For Canon) is a super compact and lightweight large aperture telephoto lens, with life-size (1:1) macro capability.

To maintain high optical performance from infinity to close-up 1:1 macro photos without accessories, this 150mm lens incorporates a "Floating Internal Focusing" (FIF) system. As a result, the lens also features a non-rotating front lens group which makes it easier to work with polarizing filters. The HSM feature provides ultra quiet high-speed autofocusing as well as full-time manual focus override. Optical image stabilization (OS) allows you to use shutter speeds 4 stops slower than would be possible without OS.

The improved DG lens design corrects for various aberrations, using 3 Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements. This macro lens is specially coated to get the best color balance while cutting down on ghosting caused by reflections from the digital image sensor. The lens provides the utmost correction against lateral chromatic aberration which is a serious problem for digital SLR cameras.

Close focus capability of 15" (38 cm), with 1:1 magnification.
Three Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements control various color aberrations and assure high image quality.
Offers Sigma's OS System (Optical Stabilization) allowing handheld photography even in low-light situations.
Hyper Sonic Motor HSM provides ultra quiet high-speed autofocusing as well as full-time manual focus override.
Designed for use with full frame digital SLR cameras. May also be used with smaller APS-c size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 225mm with most cameras.

    Sigma 150mm f/2.8 reviews

    150mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro Lens (For Canon) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice lens! I enjoy underwater photography, and wanted a macro lens with a long reach. Canon makes a 180mm macro, but I found the AF to be far too slow. I owned the Canon 100mm (both L and non-L) versions. While they performed great, this lens fills the niche of a longer reaching macro lens. I really like the finish on the newer Sigma lenses - it's much higher quality than they've used in the past. Also note that, unlike other premium macro lenses, the Sigma includes the tripod mount. So far, this lens has worked out well - very sharp and very rich colors. Auto focus is a little slow, but that seems to be true with most 100+mm macro lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Wonderful Macro Lens After owning the 150 mm Sigma Macro for just under a year, I would highly highly recommend this lens to anyone who is looking for a macro with a true 1:1 ratio. The minimum focus distance, the magnification ratio and the OS are all as advertised and the images the lens has helped produce have far exceeded my expectations (the sharpness and the bokeh are extremely impressive), providing you little excuse for not getting the macro shot you are after. Also, the construction of the lens is very solid (the weight seems well worth it to me) and the focusing system is very quick (assuming you have it on the right focus settings).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from An almost perfect macro lens I use the product to take close-ups of nature such as plants, flowers and bugs with a Canon 5D2. I also like to use it hand held. I will sometimes open the aperture to 2.8 or 4 to limit the DOF. I try to use blur creatively. Optically, this lens is wonderful. Very very sharp, great bokah and contrast; well built; front end does not move. Two small issues are 1) the focus is a little slow and also has some trouble locking onto anything if the subject is in motion, and 2) I expected the OS (stabilization) to work just a little better than advertised. The lens was also a little heavy,but at 150mm, I'm not sure this can be avoided. Also, weather sealing would have been nice. I should emphasize that these points are minor. If you work on a tripod and manual focus then most are non-issues. I took off one star (4/5) for these small negatives. The cost is very good for this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Lens! I've had the lens for about 8 months now. I used to own the older Sigma 180mm macro and I wanted to give the OS on the 150mm a try. It does a very nice job! Image quality is superb, super sharp, color/contrast is great and the bokeh is wonderful. The lens isn't all that heavy so shooting hand-held isn't a chore. all in all... very pleased with the build and performance of the lens. Still a Sigma fan.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens! I debated whether this lens, the Canon 180 and the Tamron 180. I'm glad I got the Sigma. I do mostly flowers and insects and the results are superb. It works well with my Canon 1.4x extender, a definite plus. Also fast AF and image stabilization are very much appreciated. Yes, it is heavy, but I use it mainly on a tripod or monopod. It can be hand-held. The AF and VC buttons could be better, I have a tendency to overshoot the setting I want. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens for macro studieo I'm completely satisfied that I bought the best macro lens for my needs which is mostly macro work in a studio environment. Canon lost out by not having a lens of this caliber. I was plesently surprised that my Canon 1.4X and 2X extenders work with this lens, something that Canon nor Sigma will advertise.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lens Designed for Macro Photography I purchased this lens with intention to use for a very closely photographed portrait's project. I found that quality of construction is very solid. Lens is very sharp when is focused. The lens motor works very quietly and responds quickly to a highly defined and contrast-rich subjects. In my case I used indoor natural light which is not always highly defined. In situations like that I found myself only able to use this lens in manual mode, otherwise it was hunting for focus indefinitely. I was working with 5D Mark II. For macro shots it delivered amazing color reproduction and delicate contrast gradation. The Image Stabilizer makes noticeable difference in sharpness allowing to take sharp images at 1/30 handheld. Lens is built with a lot of glass therefore it's heavy. Overall it is an amazingly bright lens for macro, art reproduction photography and forensics.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Solid Lens For The Price! This lens has a fantastic quality to price ration. Not as expensive as its Canon version, but with a fantastic quality. For what I'm using it, I'm very happy with the quality. I used a LensAlign MKII Focus Calibration System to adjust the sharpness (I do this for all my lenses,) and the correction was minimal, less than my expensive L-series Canons! Its a bit heavy, so handle with care. I can't say any more about the construction of this lens. It reminds me of the old lenses from the 50s & 60s, SOLID!
