Sigma 150mm f2.8 APO Macro DG EX HSM

Sigma_150_macro
Review Date: Oct 4, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $569.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Tack sharp Flexible and hand-holdable Tripod ring *is* removeable (on mine at least.)
Cons:
none that I can see

Using this primarily for insect macro. Compares favorable to the microNikkor 60 on sharpness with, as expected, much better working distance. Hand-holdable with flash bracket mounted to the tripod socket - makes a very flexible rig.

I've had great results as a modest telephoto as well - sharp pictures, good bokeh. Excellent color and contrast.

Does start to lose sharpness up close at apertures smaller than f/11.
