REVIEW: Sigma 150mm f/2.8 APO Macro DG

photodo

  • Conclusion: A well made and thought out macro lens with enough focal length to enable skittish insect photography without putting them to flight. Quiet and faster focusing with the ability to restrict the focusing to the area you are working in improves the experience also.
  • Pros: Quiet Focusing, quicker but not lightning., Lens does not extend, front element does not rotate., Excellent tripod collar., Ability to accept same make converters
  • Cons: Not quite as sharp as some., No belt loop on pouch

  • Excerpt: Practically every producer has a 100 mm class macro lens on their offer. What’s more, in the majority of cases, these are really well-done constructions so the competition on the market is fierce and the choice huge . When it comes to longer focal lengths, though, there is much less to choose from.
  • Cons: Average work against bright light,, Slow autofocus.

Here we deal with another case – the tested Sigma 2.8/150 is equipped with an HSM motor but still it leaves a bit to be desired because of the inconsistent...
  • Cons: low accuracy of focusing mechanism.

  • Conclusion: The Sigma AF 150mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM APO macro is one of the few third-party lenses that can play in the league up there with the big boyz. The performance figures are excellent and leave really nothing to be desired across all tested quality characteristics.
