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: Pros: 1. Amazing sharpness - can easily resolve to the full potential of the D800's 36MP. Great colors, bokeh, clarity and contrast. ZERO distortion - absolutely none. Straight lines are razor sharp. Almost no chromatic aberration even shot wide open on contrasty subjects. 2.
Summary: Just received the lens today; the order was placed on 4/14; pay $16 for two day shipping, received on 4/18, very good. Try out 50~70 pictures: both portraits and close-ups. My immediate reacts are: 1)This is not a bad lens when shoot at distance of 3ft~10++ft outdoor: sharp image,grate color(all...
Summary: This lens is very sharp. I usually buy Canon L but I made the exception for this one after reading other reviews. This lens is on par with L sharpness and gives you some good working distance if you are shooting something that scares easy.
Summary: This lens is fast and extremely sharp. I am using it on a D200 and it is great. I am deployed in Iraq and this lens is one I can feel comfortable about walking around with. It's built like a tank. It accepts the teleconverters which makes it even better. Buy this lens from 47th St Photo.
Summary: I have numerous Canon L lens, the 135L, the 200L, 24-70L, the 70-40L, additionally the canon 60 mm macro lens, the 50mm f/1.4, and the 85 f/1.8, lens; this lens and the Tamron 200-500 zoom are the only non Canon lens that I own. This lens stays on my camera more then any of the above lenses.
Summary: I have the Nikon 60 Micro lens and wanted something with more working distance. In the Photozone.de test, it was amazing. Very high resolution, even at f/2.8. And very low CA's(chromatic abberations). So I bought it and does it deliver that kind of performance? Yes it does!
Summary: I recently bought the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM APO HSM IF Macro lens, and used it on my Panasonic DMC-L1 DSLR, and I couldn't be more satisfied! (THE FOLLOWING REVIEW IS BASED ON USING THIS LENS ON PANASONIC DMC-L1 DSLR, AND SOME FUNCIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO OTHER CAMERAS, SO PLEASE VISIT SIGMA'S...
Summary: After reading almost only good things about the Sigma 150mm Macro i decided to buy one myself. I am very satisfied with the product. The images the lens products are very good. The only thing i can think of what bothers me a little bit is that the focus is a bit slow, but thats not really a problem.
