Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC APO OS HSM User Reviews

Professional grade lens from Sigma (50-150mm, f/2.8)
“Okay, my testing, well, it was a very solid feeling lens with a very quick autofocus (comparable to Canon’s USM lens focus speeds), good image stabilization (I can attest to at least 3 stops of effective anti-shake as I have blur-free shots at full telephoto at 1/8 second, hand held), and complete compatibility with the Canon bodies.” – By Michael A. Duvernois

Must have
“The extra few inches, weight and 300$-400$ vs the front focusing (though fixable) and non OS version is well worth it. The focal range is also great. I used to think that in small spaces the 17-50 2.8 would be a better range to work with but the 50-150 is able to isolate the background much more so I’d give a tie there. I do have the Fuji X100 to cover that focal range anyway – which doesn’t require me to change lens” – By 2005 Astoria user

Blown away
“I previously owned the original 50-150 2.8 and, although it was small and light weight, the focus and performance was unpredictable. This lens on my 7D is sweet. Perfect focal range for portraits and the focus is right on with tack sharp results. The OS works well too. Overall contract and quality of the pictures blew me away with the first use. Very happy!” – By Tim

Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC APO OS HSM Specifications

The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the new Sigma APO 50-150mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM, designed especially for APS-C size image sensors.

Sigma’s proprietary OS (Optical Stabilizer) system offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible, enabling hand held tele-photography. Six SLD glass elements compensate for chromatic aberrations and provide high image quality throughout the zoom range.

The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and ensures sharp and high contrast images even at the maximum apertures. The lens design adopts an inner focusing and inner zooming system to provide convenient handling and the HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures quiet and high speed autofocus while allowing full-time manual focus override.

This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 80cm (31.5”) and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:6.3. The rounded 9 blade diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out of focus areas of the image. The addition of Sigma’s TELE CONVERTER 1.4x EX DG APO or 2x EX DG APO produces a 70-210 F4 AF telephoto zoom lens or 100-300 F5.6 AF telephoto zoom respectively.

    the previous version (non OS) was more appropriate in size and weight as an APS-C Lens.

  2. Flaxoo says:

    This can be a very nice lens. I love the 50-150mm especially for the beautifull boheh and the weight. I the weight of the new lens is about the same I will upgrade. If he is heavier I prefer the old one.
