Sigma 150mm f2.8 APO Macro DG EX HSM

Sigma_150_macro
Review Date: Sep 4, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 4 

 
Pros: reasonably sharp, good focusing ring, well dampened
Cons:
poor build quality

After having owned this lens for about a month now, the lens fell over while standing on a short tripod for macro purposes. The lens fell on the grass and broke right through the middle!
The plastic back part of the lens is fixed to a metal front frame by means of 3 really tiny screws. These screws are embedded in the plastic. This really is a very weak construction!
Take a look at these images:
