Sigma 50-150mm F2.8 EX DC HSM APO

Review Date: Aug 25, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp Lens, F2.8, Lightweight
Cons:
No tripod collar

I picked up this lens about three months ago. This lens is together with my 18-70 always in my bag. I use them about evenly.

I bought this lens at first for making portraits, which it does perfectly well, but also for other subjects it's very well useable. The images are very sharp, focussing is very fast and very nice bokeh. Also the weight is very low which makes that I can keep it in my hands for a very long time.

The only thing I miss is a tripod collar, especially when using it with my 2x converter. But this is the only problem I'm having with it. I recommend it to everybody who is looking for a lens in this range.
