Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro Overview

A medium-length telephoto prime optimized for close-up shooting, the Canon EF-mount APO Macro 150mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM from Sigma is a unique lens, characterized by its bright f/2.8 maximum aperture, apochromatic designation, and close-focusing capability. The optical design employs three SLD elements to virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the focusing range for improved clarity and color rendering. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied for greater contrast when working in strong lighting conditions.

Making use of the strong optical assets, this macro lens is of course distinguished by its 1.25' minimum focusing distance and life-size 1:1 maximum magnification ratio, as well as a floating internal focus design that maintains consistent performance throughout the focusing range. A Hyper Sonic Motor affords quick and quiet autofocus performance while an Optical Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Additionally, a removable, rotating tripod collar is included to better support working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.

Telephoto prime is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 240mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2.8 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in available light conditions and also provides greater control over the focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
Ideal for macro shooting, this lens offers a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 1.25' to suit working with close-up subjects.
Apochromatic optical design utilizes three Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements to significantly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for increased clarity and color fidelity.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM), along with an internal focusing design, realizes quick and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
Floating elements system helps to maintain consistent image quality throughout the entire focusing range.
Optical Stabilizer system minimizes the appearance of camera shake to benefit making sharper imagery when shooting handheld.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
A removable, rotating tripod collar offers well-balanced support for photographing atop a tripod or monopod with either vertical or horizontal shooting orientations.
Compatible with optional APO 1.4x EX DG and APO 2x EX DG teleconverters.

A Pleasure to Use

The photos are clear with the macro. The Optical Image Stabilization is a bit louder than my Nikon VR but I can live with it. Overall, this is a very nice lens to use and I am very happy I added to my everyday usage.

An absolutely amazing lens

An absolutely amazing lens. Allows you to photograph insects, frogs, lizards all from a distance that won't scare away the subject of your photo.

I would recommend to everyone.

Great lens, especially for subjects that are shy. The extra distance over 105mm macro can be beneficial. Good feel and not too heavy, and weight isn't a problem, if you use on tripod, like I always do.

Crystal clear lens

The Macro photos with this lens are crystal clear. The long minimum focus length is great for not crowding your subject and still getting the 1:1 magnification!!!

Fun To Use!

Its a nice lens for close-ups of flowers. If you are going to be photographing frogs, bugs, and butterflies youll definitely want a 200mm lens. This lens will work for the above, but the bug will only fill 50% of the sensor at a distance from the bug that wont scare it off. Therefore, you will have to do major post edit cropping. For the price difference between this lens and a 200mm, Ill do post process editing.

Extremely well built & sharp as a tack

This is my third Sigma lens, and I am just as impressed with the quality of this lens as I was with my other two. The focus is very quick and extremely sharp. I am most happy with this lens.

Very sharp

I am very impressed with the sharpness and build quality. It doesn't focus quite as fast as my S-series Nikkor lenses but it is close. I would buy another one immediately if mine was broken or lost.

Already sending in for service.

I don't think my problem has anything to do with B&H. but it doesn't keep focus on AF, the focus goes in and out then will not find item to focus on. Missed many shoots while I was getting to know the lens. For the cost not very happy that I'm already sending it in.

Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO AF Telephoto Macro Lens for Nikon AF. I hear the hypersonic motor when autofocusing. It is to be quiet. Does anyone else have this problem? Called Sigma and stated nothing is wrong. Need to know if I should send for repair?
Asked by: PATRICIA
The focusing on a lens like this will never be silent and if it performs optically, there is probably nothing to be fixed--there's always some variability between copies of a lens.

question

Besides being slightly more telephoto does the180mm sigma macro offer any benefits.
Asked by: Anonymous
If you are comparing the Sigma 150mm and 180mm macro lenses, the big difference is just the focal lengths. They both provide 1:1 macro reproduction rates, with image stabilization. The 150mm is a newer model, however, and may have a slightly faster autofocusing speed.
