Overview

Description by Sigma:

LENS DISCONTINUED

  • Designed for use with full frame digital SLR cameras.  May also be used with smaller APS-c size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 225mm with most cameras
  • Focuses down to 1:1 magnification ratio at its closest working distance of 15 inches
  • A lens hood, tripod socket TS-21, front & rear lens caps and carrying case are included with the lens.

This Sigma Macro 150mm F2.8 EX DG HSM is a large aperture medium macro lens ideal shooting the smaller things in our world that exist 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.  Two 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 is also compatible with Sigma APO Tele Converters.
Ideally suited for taking pictures 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 flexibility in lighting the subject with natural light reflectors.  So don’t miss the tiny insects, flowers of the world or  the details in a stamp or coin collection or a piece of embroidery all of which are seldom noticed but offer a fascinating world if you look closely enough.  Capture them with the Sigma Macro 150mm F2.8 EX DG

Reviews

"The build of this lens is excellent. Everything has been put together to extremely fine tolerances and the lens is finished in a matt powder coating that looks very smart indeed. A gold stripe around the front of the lens barrel signifies that this is one of Sigma's top-line EX lenses.

"The lens comes supplied in a well padded zip-topped case complete with shoulder strap and, being an EX lens, an extended two year warranty making three years warranty in all. The lens is also supplied with a dedicated lens hood of the bayonet type that has a click-stop to ensure it stays in place. The whole thing is finished in the EX matt finish which is both smart and hardwearing.

Also included with the lens is Sigma’s quick-release
