Sigma 150mm f2.8 APO Macro DG EX HSM

Sigma_150_macro
Review Date: Mar 12, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $569.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Build quality, sharp, HSM (AF-S), Internal Focus, Constant aperture & focal length, did I say SHARP
Cons:
Focus twist is backward from Nikkor lenses - not a big deal.

I am a Nikkor chauvinist. With that said I feel this lens blows the Nikkor 105 Micro out of the water. I have absolutely no regrets selling mine and replacing it with the Sigma.

It was like getting out of a '70s car and into a 21st century model. Gone is the annoying mechanical AF, the aperture constantly changing as you focus, the actual focal length changing... all gone and replaced with a sleek, albeit a bit funky finished, speedster.

Sharpness, contrast - everything is top shelf all the way.
