Product Description

Style: Canon Digital SLRs

Sigma Macro 150mm F2.8 EX DG HSM (106-101) boasts Optical Stabilization (OS) which is critical to equipment sporting this focal range and is now splash-proof. Offering the latest optical design technology this lens remains a large aperture medium macro lens ideal for shooting the smaller things in world that exists virtually unseen.A macro lens is one which will focus on a subject close enough to render it "life-size" on the image plane in your camera. It also has a "flat" field" front lens element so that it can shoot images of flat objects such as artwork or postage stamps and be tack sharp all the way across the image. With HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) a quiet & high-speed auto focus is ensured. It provides extremely high optical performance from infinity to 1:1 Macro.Three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide optimum color correction and sharpness throughout the entire range and Super Multi-layer coating reduces flare and ghosting. It has superior peripheral brightness and provides sharp and high contrast images even at maximum apertures. The OS offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. It is also compatible with Sigma APO Tele Converters. Ideally suited for taking pictures of insects or other small creatures, but it is also the perfect focal length for facial portraits rendering the best perspective of the human face. This greater distance also allows the photographer more flexi

Great colors, bokeh, clarity and contrast.

I then put the camera and lens on a tripod, switched to manual focus and turned the Stabilization off.

This is a pro-quality lens that I highly recommend.

I'm a professional photographer and typically purchase Canon lenses, but this lens fills a gap in the Canon line-up that I couldn't otherwise fill. Canon does not offer (at the time of writing this review) a macro lens of this focal length that has image stabilization. I consider image stabilization essential for telephoto lenses when shooting hand-held. This lens does not disappoint. The stabilization system works as promised for telephoto shots.

I only own fast lenses (f/2.8 or wider) and this lens is a fast telephoto. Wide open at f/2.8, it is a bit soft at the edges, but needle sharp in the center. This is to be expected from this kind of lens. Stopped down to f/8 the sharpness extends to the full frame. Bokeh is creamy smooth.

I recommend turning off the image stabilization when shooting macro with this lens, and using a tripod. Macro focus is too critical at this focal length to do close-up shots hand-held. Wide open, the depth of field is razor thin. Even stopped down to f/16, there isn't much room for error.

This lens is in my bag whenever I want the versatility of a telephoto and a macro in one lens. It does both jobs competently. This is a pro-quality lens that I highly recommend.

Style Name: Nikon Digital SLRs Verified Purchase
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. Heavy, but well balanced lens (but far lighter than a f/2.8 telephoto zoom). Solidly constructed with absolutely no play. Nice smooth metallic texture, and large rubberized focus rings. Buttons and focus ring are smooth and easy to use/engage and to switch from mode to mode.
3. Quiet and fast focusing. Not as fast as the Nikon/Canon f/2.8 zooms, but still very good. Speed is drastically improved by limiting the range to macro or telephoto. Very easy to use manual focus too.
4. 100% in focus images. Close to 1000 photos later, not one image has missed focus in either the macro or the telephoto range.
5. Stabilization good - gives 2 stops improvement in telephoto (about 1/40s shutter speeds). Great lens for hand-holding.
6. Nice bokeh - smooth and rounded, with no harsh edges or aberrations.

Cons:
1. Tightening the tripod collar seems to affect focusing ability. Need to investigate this issue more with Sigma.
2. Slight focus breathing between 1:1 and 1:2 macro. After 1:2, almost no change in image size. However, this is a design limitation with all macros. In the telephoto range, it is far better than the Nikon f/2.8 zoom whose 200mm effectively becomes 135mm at close focus. The Sigma stays at 150mm at almost all focus distances.

Test notes/comments about the focal length:
1. Great perspective for telephoto shots - ideal for candids. Amazing bokeh even when shot from 20 feet away.
2. Great for telephoto landscapes/skyline shots.

Style Name: Nikon Digital SLRs Verified Purchase
This is an amazing lens and what a bargain. I purchased this after experiencing extremely bad and annoying CA on a Tokina 100mm ATX Pro macro and realizing that a little longer working distance would work better for me as well. I also looked at the Nikon 105 Micro Nikkor (now made in China) and after reading a few reviews from diverse sources decided to give this a try.
The fit and finish of the lens which is made in Japan is first class. It is a heavy lens but you can remove the well made tripod collar and save a few ounces for hand held shooting. Either way it is quite well balanced. It has all the setting I need (AF range limiter, AF/MF switch, and the option to turn off the optical stabilizer (OS in Sigma terms, or VR in Nikon speak)). Manual focus is beutifully precise and it is easy to move focus by a very small distance although I wish it focussed in the same direction as my Nikon lenses.
I'm using it on a Nikon D800E and the match to that sensor is simply stunning. I have never seen detail like this before. There is no color fringing or CA to speak of, even wide open. Bokeh is beautiful and creamy. I even took some flat art shots and there was no need for any field correction whatsoever. Light fall off is less than I expected, color is refreshingly neutral. On a crop sensor D7000 performance is stunning as well, but the lens feels heavy and the balance is a little awkward with that camera. Overall this is one of the best lenses for a Nikon camera I have owned.

Style Name: Nikon Digital SLRs Verified Purchase
Purchased lens as an upgrade to Nikon's latest 105mm Micro-Nikkor with image stabilization and Nano crystal coating when I traded my D300 for the new D800 full-frame. The professional reviewers I read unanimously reported the lens as delivering exceptional image quality with the only detractions being the hefty weight and a significant cost increase over its non-stabilized predecessor. After ordering it from Amazon one evening I was happily surprised to receive the lens around 2pm the following day by courier. It was very well packed and upon initial inspection I was impressed with the apparent quality. I sat down and read through the short instructions which was unnecessary except for the Stabilization switch as the others controlling the Focus Limit and Manual/Auto focus are clearly marked. The Stabilization switch is marked OFF, 1 and 2, so unless you have used a stabilized lens before the need for anything more than On and Off would be confusing. In use the switches are a bit stiff so it's somewhat difficult to move the Stabilization and Focus Limit switches without going past an intended mid-position. The removable tripod collar is nicely marked making it easy to swing from landscape to portrait orientation. The hood is a clever two piece design allowing use on both full-frame and DX cropped sensor cameras.

I attached the lens to the camera and found no wobble or play in the mount. Initially I used auto focus and was generally happy with the speed and accuracy while the noise level was generally unobtrusive, although I probably wouldn't use the lens when shooting video in auto focus mode. There was more focus hunting than with my prior Nikkor, but again it is only a matter of degree and not a deal breaker.
