Sigma AF 150mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM APO Macro OS (Canon EOS) - APS-C Review / Test Report
5 March 2009
Conclusion: The Sigma AF 150mm f/2.8 EX HSM DG APO macro OS is certainly among the very best macro lenses that we've tested here at photozone. It delivered great results in our full format test already and it is not worse in the APS-C format despite the comparatively higher pixel density of our base DSLR. The lens is capable of delivering very good results at max. aperture and the center quality does even reach excellent quality between f/4 and f/8.
Sigma AF 150mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM APO Macro (FX) - Review / Test Report
25 February 2009
Conclusion: The Sigma AF 150mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM APO performs on a very high level and delivers very good to excellent sharpness in the image center and very good border and corner sharpness at any aperture from wide open down to f/11, where diffraction begins to reduce resolution. Combined with the Sigma 1.4x APO DG tele converter the resolution is a bit lower, but still on a high level, at least when stopped down a little.
Sigma AF 150mm f/2.8 APO EX HSM macro DG D - Review / Test Report
11 May 2007
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. The mechanical build quality is very good thanks to a metal body and a true IF (internal focusing) design with a constant physical length.
