Wonderful magnification.

S. R. Payne, Amazon

  • Summary: This is an absolutely beautiful lens. When coupled with a Sigma 2x converter the magnification is amazing. You will need to use manual focus and tripod, but the pictures are really outstanding. Highly recommended for those of you who do not mind doing things by hand (manual). A good software program like Adobe Light room 5.6 will do the trick quit nicely in dressing things up a bit. I would now love to get my hands on the Sigma 180mm macro.

This lens is also great as a longer prime

  • Summary: Tack sharp within DOF.. Close focus isn't a fixed F2.8. Nikon version however correctly reports to prevent underexposure. This lens is also great as a longer prime. Bokeh is beautiful.

Just as good as most reviews say it is

  • Summary: Just as good as most reviews say it is. Wish it had image stabilization. It has been superseded by Canon and Sigma but is still an excellent lens.

Great Sigma 150mm f2.8 lens

Patricia S. Lambrecht, Amazon
27 May 2014
  • Summary: I rented this lens from lensrental before I bought on Amazon. I have a Canon 5D Mark iii with only a Canon 85mm f1.2 lens. The Sigma 150 has nice boket (not quite as great as my Canon 85mm). Might be slightly heavier than the 85 mm but the ring around it makes it easier to hold. You can get very close with the Sigma 150 (I have to be 30 inches away with the 85mm) which has NO macro and no Image Stabilization. The Sigma has two Image (called OS) stabilitzation settings.

Excellent Lens

G. Wood, Amazon
17 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this lens elsewhere, and used. The used factor made no difference in quality, but it did cost half of what is advertised here. I have been a hobbyist and did not have a prime lens to shoot barrel racing, but did use a Nikkor 18-200 DX on a Nikon D200 in the past. That lens is fine when outdoors, but you need a better lens for indoor arenas.

Great Macro Lens (Sigma 150mm f/2.8 OS lens for Nikon)

Photo Dave, Amazon
11 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this lens for use on a Nikon D300 primarily for extreme close-ups (e.g., small flowers or plants, insects, etc.) and also as a potential portrait lens. I have been using it for a couple of weeks, and it works extremely well for both applications. The OS image stabilization aspect also comes in handy for regular telephoto use or for portraits.
