Nikon 200mm f4 micro vs Sigma 150 macro OS
Sep 18, 2012

I have long been a fan of the Sigma 150 macro and now have the OS version. One of my dream lenses has come up for sale use and in superb condition..... the Nikon 200mm micro. I have not used the lens, just read lots of glowing reports.

Owning both is not an option, nor is buying the 200mm now and selling on one of them at a later date. It would have to be a part-ex with the Sigma so it would be a bold step.

I only plan to use it for macro. I do like the Sigma for portrait but I have a Nikon 70~200 VR that is just as good (though a bit bigger than I'd like for portrait). In any case, I have options so we are only talking macro.
Anyone used both? Any pros and cons?

It would be nice to be able to use my Nikon extention tube, which I can't do on the Sigma. But i do like the Sigma!
