Sigma 150mm f2.8 APO Macro DG EX HSM

Review Date: Dec 29, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Very Sharp, easy to use, great build quality.
slow auto focus but image quality makes up for this for sure

I've always wanted to try macro and never got the results I wanted from any of my zoom lenses with various attachments..(ie 100-400L with 77mm close up lense) After reading both FM reveiws and DP reviews on every macro I could find I decided to give the 150mm f2.8 sigma a go and the reveiws were spot on, This has to be the sharpest lense I've used, I was also going to purchase a dedicated macro light but have got some great results from using my 580ex off camera hand held, im no expert so I've put in a link below to help you judge for your self if your trying to make a decicion on this one!!
