Product Description

This large aperture telephoto zoom lens is designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras with APS-C size sensors and its compact, lightweight body provides freedom of movement and versatility. The minimum focusing distance of 39.4 and the high-resolution power layout have improved the strength of the lens in close-up photography. This lens offers a maximum aperture of F2.8 and its large depth of field offers greater freedom of creative expression. Four SLD glass elements provide maximum correction of chromatic aberrations. The super multi-layer lens coating reduce flare and ghosting and ensure sharp images throughout the entire zoom range. The lens design incorporates an inner focusing and inner zooming system. As the overall length of the lens does not change during focusing and zooming, convenient handling is ensured. The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) system allows quiet and high-speed auto focusing with full time manual focus override by just rotating the focusing ring. The addition of the optional 1.4x EX DG APO or 2x EX DG APO Tele Converters produce a 70-210mm F4 AF tele-zoom lens and a 100-300mm F5.6 AF ultra-telephoto zoom lens respectively.

I use this lens on a Canon 50D and it works flawlessly. Focusing was fast and accurate and the images were outstanding. I also have a Canon EF 70-200 f2.8L IS, which is one of the best lenses money can buy. I use it a lot in studio and more controlled conditions, but the weight makes it very difficult for a long day of tourist-type walking and shooting. I used the Sigma lens extensively on a recent trip to Paris, indoors and out, It was great in the many museums where photos were allowed but only without flash. I highly recommend this lens for anyone who has not moved up to a full frame DSLR.

I bought it over Amazon to match my Canon 40D. Didn't realize the front focus problem is very serious. Now I sent it to Sigma service center for re-calibration.

Other than that, I like it very much: light weight, nice bokeh, and quiet and fast AF.

Update 10/07/08:

Sigma sent it back to me today and it is as sharp as it can be. I am very happy now.

With the acquisition of the 18MP Canon 60D I knew I needed to upgrade my lenses and had vowed to stick to Canon this time. Hwever, they don't make a lens like the Sigma 50-150mm - it has the zoom range I'm looking for with a constant f/2.8 aperture, without weighing a ton and the reviews are great.

BUT... The first one front-focussed so badly that I could not use it on Auto Focus unless the aperture was small enough that the discrpancy didn't matter. Since I want to use this lens in low light on moving subjects this made it unusable for me. If my lovely new 60D had the micro-adjustment feature, that would probably have sorted the problem as the lens front-focussed all the way from 50mm to 150mm and the one adjustment might well have done the trick - good news for those with 50Ds and 7Ds.

Since I had bought it from Norman Camera (through Amazon), I could take it in and try another copy. They were extemely helpful - and patient - while I put 2 more copies through their paces at their Grand Rapids store and yet a third copy at their Kalamazoo store. All of the copies of this lens had exactly the same behavior. I couldn't see one that was any better than the others. It was almost as if they had been designed for another camera. And no, it isn't my camera, as none of my other lenses have this problem including my new Canon EF 200mm f/2.8 L which would surely show it if it was there.

I know I could have returned the lens to Sigma and get them to adjust it to fit my camera but I decided instead to return it and see if I could learn to manage with a couple of primes instead.

I did a side-by-side comparison of the lens and my favorite canon lens 24mm-105mm - both on a tripod and handheld. This sigma 50-150 mm performed almost as well as my expensive canon lens at f4.5 to f22. But below f4.0 it did not focus at the correct depth. Of course the reason to buy this lens is for the wide f2.8 light-gathering ability; unfortunately this is where the lens focuses poorly. I am sending it back.
