Sigma 150mm F2.8 EX DG Macro HSM User Reviews

Telephoto macro prime lens | Canon EF, Nikon F (FX), Four Thirds, Sigma SA Bayonet

This Sigma lens is the longest focal length true macro available in the now discontinued Olympus/Panasonic 4/3 mount.  By adding an adapter, it works perfectly with PDAF capable Olympus micro FT bodies giving one excellent, sharp results while achieving sufficient shooting distances to skittish subjects. Focus is fast and quiet.  It is easily handholdable and the build quality is outstanding. The lens is hard to find but worth the search! CDC

Its useless, when in non macro usually it locks on, not the best, but you have endless grinding and noise as it does it. You still have the imige juddering as it does lock on. One ...

If you're ever looking for a macro lens with good reach and you spot one of these for sale, grab it as fast as you can. Those who own one usually don't want to let it go, so it is hard to find a used copy. This is one of the sharpest lenses out there. It's one of my favorite lenses in my bag and it is excellent for shooting shy insects due to extended reach. It has very good clarity and accurate focus. The new version of this lens is not any sharper, but it does have vibration reduction (OS). ...
