Sigma 150mm f2.8 EX DG OS APO Macro for Canon

Available August 7, 2014

The predecessor to this lens was probably our favorite Macro: superbly sharp, great working distance, and just a super Macro lens that was also an excellent mid-range telephoto lens. The 150mm range allows more working distance when shooting Macro. The OS system adds about 3 stops of image stabilization, allowing it to be used without a tripod for a lot of macro work. As with all updated OS lenses, the optical formula has been changed a bit, and the lens is a bit larger and heavier.

150mm is probably my favorite macro focal length: you get a nice working distance so you can be further from the object than with a 100mm lens, yet the 150mm is not too large to handhold. The OS system in the Sigma 150mm OS encourages hand-held shots, too, although you’ll still want a tripod and focusing rail for really critical macro work and the lens comes with a tripod collar for just that purpose.

The Sigma 150mm macro is just as sharp as any 100mm macro made. The OS system isn’t quite as good as the Canon 100mm f/2.8 IS L lens, but it’s still quite good.
