IMO The Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro is not a substitute for the ZD 150mm f/2. The Sigma is what it is and that is an excellent macro lens. Even with the focus limiter it is a slow focusing lens.

You're wrong - it's a very slow focusing lens!

Mine is glacially slow on both my E3 and E5. I tried it the other day with the grip and 2 freshly charged batteries, hoping that the extra 'oomf' would wake it up, but it didn't make any difference. It also dithers a lot.

It is a good way to test the fastest autofocus: take a third party lens and test how fast it focuses on each competing system. Fastest may not be the fastest after all.
