Simply Awesome.

  • Excerpt: This lens is the whole reason I purchased a new camera kit. It's tack sharp. Most reviewers agree, those that don't are what I like to call "wrong"! It does hunt a little when on AF in macro, but you should be using manual focus for that anyway - you're a photographer! This is a SUPERB lens. Sorry I could only give it 5 stars.
  • Pros: Beautifel Bokeh, Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast Af In Non Macro, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Some Hunting-close Macro

Fantastic Lens!

  • Excerpt: I've had the lens for about 8 months now. I used to own the older Sigma 180mm macro and I wanted to give the OS on the 150mm a try. It does a very nice job! Image quality is superb, super sharp, color/contrast is great and the bokeh is wonderful. The lens isn't all that heavy so shooting hand-held isn't a chore. all in all... very pleased with the build and performance of the lens. Still a Sigma fan.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: NONE

Sigma 140mm Macro/ B&H Service Superb

Bill, B&H Photo
23 July 2013
  • Excerpt: My most recent purchase from B&H is the newest 150mm macro lens by Sigma. As a nature photographer, I find that not only do lions, rhinos, foxes and eagles, etc., get my attention, but so do those tiny creatures in the grass -- bugs, lizards, butterflies, praying mantis and others. This new and updated macro, with its f/2.8 aperture, with optical stabilization, will permit me to get full frame, 1: 1, 1: 2, 1: 3, etc.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Magnification Indicator, Manual Focus Over-ride, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: None found

Wonderful lens!

  • Excerpt: I used this lens for a macro photography class. Wow, I can't say enough great things about it. It performs amazingly with the sharpest, clearest close-up pictures I've ever seen. It has a little bit of trouble finding it's focus at times. But the pictures I got from that class were outstanding. It has a very solid construction, if a bit on the heavy side. But then again, I'm used to using my little 40mm f/2.8 macro lens, which doesn't compare in performance.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

  • Summary: Bought this for my wife who loved her Non IS sigma version but really wanted the IS for hand holding since she didnt want to be carrying the tripod...
  • Pros: Solid, well constructed, clean bokeh, even better with IS
  • Cons: Sizeable and reasonably heavy, 2 different lens shades can get confusing
