>> REVIEWS (last updated: 07.12.06)

SLRgear have reviewed the Sigma APO MACRO 150mm F2.8 EX DG HSM where they conclude;
“At the end of the day, the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro seems to offer the best bang of just about anything in its focal length/aperture range. If you’re interested in shooting really close-up macro, yet with a reasonable working range, the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 looks to be a really excellent choice.”

ePhotozine have reviewed the Sigma APO MACRO 150mm F2.8 EX DG HSM where they conclude;
“A well made and thought out macro lens with enough focal length to enable skittish insect photography without putting them to flight. Quiet and faster focusing with the ability to restrict the focusing to the area you are working in improves the experience also. Good balance on the excellent tripod collar makes for easy tripod work. Good, but not outstanding picture quality. A nice lens.”

Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce of the world’s first High Speed Tele Macro MACRO 150mm F2.8 EX DG HSM lens.

This large aperture telephoto macro lens enables you to shoot up to 1:1 life size close-ups. Its large F2.8 aperture makes it an ideal lens for digital SLR as well as film SLR cameras. The new lens power layout provides the ultimate correction against lateral chromatic aberration to which digital cameras are prone.
