Sigma 150mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

The Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro Lens (For Sony) 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 Sony) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing lens just heavy I use my copy on a a7r with Sony's adapter with AF motor. Crazy sharp even wide open and the added stabilization is just lovely. Being the only 150mm macro lens in the world, this lens is truely underated. This lens has faster AF then any 180mm macro lens and it's lighter. I use it for portraits, macro, range, candids, product, food, bokeh and so much more. Construction is great but not sure about weather proofing. Glass is excellent and MTF charts show that. Up to par with the a7r's resolution. Just wish it was lighter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Sharp! I actually bought this for use with my Sony NEX 7 via LA-EA2 adapter which makes for an awkward and heavy combo. The resolution and sharpness is beyond excellent from f2.8 downward. There are no aberrations that I could see although the bokeh is just average. Although billed as a macro lens, this also makes a great telephoto lens and the optical stabilization is quite effective which makes it great for video. The autofocus is accurate and speedy but not as fast as sports-oriented telephoto lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens I am an semi-pro photographer who has been shooting for the past 35 years wildlife and scenic shots. This is an excellent macro lens. It allows me to capture close ups of flowers, animals, and insects without disturbing them. Very sharp images, quiet, and excellent clarity! I would have and would recommend this lens to a friend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens I bought this lens to serve two main functions; macro photography and available light shooting. The lens is extremely sharp from f3.5 and beyond, but still very sharp at f2.8. I love using the focus limiter, because this lens hunts a little at nightie in fairly dark rooms.This is probably the only real problem with the lens. It is a great sports lens at close range and overall image quality is fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Macro I have ever used This is my first lens with a hypersonic motor, It is so quiet, at first I thought there was something wrong with it, then pops up a perfect rendition of your subjecct, Truly Amazing. I use it on an APS C sensor and get a bonus of 1:1 magnification at over 200MM. So far, I dont have any negatives. Beautiful Construction

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a good lens. It could have been my 1st macro lens but it didn't worked out. I don't know if it's just me or der is really something wrong with d lens. Either way I returned it 4a refund which I did get after 3 long days. 2days would have been acceptable. 3 days is just dem trying 2 make u sweat it out. But like I said I did get a full refund so it's all good. I'm still in d market 4a long telephoto lens & macro lens & still planning on buying diz lenses at B&H. Just working on w / c lens 2 buy.
