Sigma 150mm macro vs Tamron 180mm macro
Apr 14, 2011

Which one is better? I have the Tamron 90mm and like it a lot but
I want a more powerful macro lens, so I can get shots of skittish insects.
I have read a ton of awesome reviews about the Sigma. What sounds

good about the Tamron is the extra 30mm of focal strength. The bigger aperture sounds better with the Sigma. I am kinda leaning towards the Sigma but just wanted to hear what others had to say. Any feedback from people who own either of these lens would be greatly appreciated.
