Summary: ok i was really wanting to start shoot macro. i was looking at all the macro lenses. i had bought the extension tude to use on my 50mm prime len. tubs did a good job but not what i was looking to get out of macro.so i narrowed it down to three lens, 1.
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).
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.
Summary: Excellent lens, I usually using it for macro very sharp when use tripod or subject not moving, I happy with it and make great macro , It's fine lens to me sometime I using tele-converter with it like x1.4 or x2.0 I get large and sharp macro I use it with Nikon D7100
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.
