Sigma 150mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

The Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro Lens (For Nikon) 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 Nikon) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good. This is some hunk of glass. So far seems nice. More to follow when the flowers are in bloom. I bought this lens over the Nikon 105mm. All of the reviews could not give me any reason to buy the Nikon over the Sigma. I even called Sigma to ask some questions and amazingly someone answered the phone. The Tripod collar is easily removed if you need to. The packaging is great with a nice case. while taking pics I was able to see the Bokeh immediately. the subject is sharp as a tack and the fore and backround are creamy. so far I am not nor do I expect to be disappointed with this piece. Nice job Sigma.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens I had the older Sigma 150mm macro til I dropped it off a cliff to the rocks below and liked that lens very much. I looked at replacing that lens with a 200mm Nikon for my Nikon D5000, but again, price. Sigma has a great job upgrading this lens with the OS system. I am able to hand hold shots were a tripod was need before. I had to see if the OS worked as advertised and it does. When shooting macro the AF still hunts to find the focus,but I seldom use auto focus with macro work. The A/M focus switch is more convenient then the manual over ride. The exterior finish has been inproved as well. It is alittle heavier than the old lens, but again, for macro work I use a tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hefty lens Waited about six months for the Nikon version to come out. Purchased it first day to use with my Nikon D90. Produces excellent sharp photos when used with a tripod or your arms are supported in some way. The insect photos I have taken of 1/4 inch spiders, the hearts of flowers, dragon flies, flies,etc. are superbly sharp. You can get within 9 inches of object you want to shoot. Lens comes with 2 hoods--one for full frame cameras and the other for DX type cameras. It is heavy (about 40 oz.), feels very solid, and I am very happy with it so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would highly recommend this lens After receiving the lens, I went out and photographed a lot of bees and any other insects I could find. Everything looked great. Couldn't expect any more from a lens. Smooth silent operation and exceptional detail in the photographs...I could count every hair on the bee.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Image quality with schizoid personality This lens is great for wild life macro photography, it produces fantastic images but the autofocus is completely schizofrenic. It goes quickly to that almost in focus, slows down to fine tune and then, when it finds that sweet spot it gives you one sort of YES! I GOT IT! shake (yes, it's like a little jump) and for 60% of the time it ends off focus due to that celebrating jump... Why doesn't it just stop when it finds the sweet focus spot is a mistery... I don't know if SIGMA fixed this meanwhile(I got it in 2008) and I hope so because they absolutelly succeeded in terms optical/image quality. This is undoubtelly one of the best macrolenses in the market but the autofocus issues put it one step behind other alternatives. I'd still recomend it for it's image quality but hope SIGMA repairs this lens autofocus issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money Sharp lens for macro work. 150mm focal length gives long working distance - reduces chances of spooking subjects such as dragonflies, butterflies, frogs, and other small animals. Autofocus a little slow, but I normally use manual focus and move camera relative to subject to focus. Chose this lens over Nikon 200mm f/4 micro because of Optical Stabilization feature and wider maximum apeture (f/2.8); also $600 lower price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens I use the lens mostly for macro work. Construction-wise I have two minor gripes: the switch to select the image stabilization (OS) mode is a little hard to move, making it a little difficult to go from disabling the OS to activating the OS in normal mode: the switch often ends up at the next position. The other small issue is with the provided hood. It comes in two pieces. The 2nd piece is an extension of the 1st one to be used only for DX camera. With both pieces on, the hood is about as long as the lens. I would have preferred instead of an extension to get a 2nd very short hood which would still offer some protection to the front element yet does not protrude much to scare the little bugs. This would make more since considering what the lens is for. Otherwise the hood attaches well to the lens and inspire confidence. The lens is very solidly built. Too solidly built even if that's possible as it is a heavy for a 150 mm lens macro For many the weight won't not be an issue as most won't use the lens without support, but if you are considering using this lens a lot hand held you better handle it out first, just to ensure you like what you carry. Rotating the focusing ring is very smooth, and requires a perfect amount of strength, neither too much or too little. The provided foot is very solid. Optically wise the lens amazes me. It is very sharp, as expected, from corner to corner (on DX). More surprising, try as hard as I may I can't get any CA even wide opened (f2.8, non macro situations) and when shooting very contrasted scenes (such as the usual tree branch against a very bright background). On my copy bokeh is excellent, and shows no sign of mis-centering whatsoever. This is my first Sigma lens, and optically I'll rank it among the very best I've used (and I do use high end glass). Note that as magnification decreases the maximum aperture drops as expected, it is f5.6 at 1:1 magnification. I have made little use of the optical stabilization system and won't comment on that. Focusing is very fast, as fast as any of the Pro level Nikkor lens I've used, but the lens does trend to go hunting a bit more than I expected. Accuracy wise, in non-macro situations it is right on on my D300 without the need for any adjustment. It definitely starts to front focus a very little bit when the magnification gets close to 1:1. Very little but enough to require correction considering how shallow the DOF can be in macro situations. Still the AF provides a useful starting point. All in all this is a great lens, but why did Sigma decided to update this lens with OS does not make much sense to me. Considering the intended application for macro (the lens is too long for portraits unless it's a very tight framing) ,the same lens without OS, and less expensive, would meet most user needs just as well.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I'm a pro photographer and do a lot of macro work. This lens had problems with the focusing ring. It stuck or skipped repeatedly. When I tightened down the tripod collar it stuck the focusing ring at that point. I didn't over tighten the collar. The lens is not as sharp as depicted. I have another lens from another manufacturer that is A LOT sharper. I had high hopes for this lens, but they didn't come through.
