The Sigma Macro 150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is a high performance macro lens designed for full frame cameras but may also be used with smaller APS-C size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 225mm with most cameras.
The Sigma Macro 150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is a high performance macro lens designed for full frame cameras but may also be used with smaller APS-C size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 225mm with most cameras. This highly optimized lens has an ideal focal length and is equipped with Sigma technology including an Optical Stabilizer (OS), Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) and Super Multi-Layer Coating. The HSM ensures accurate, quiet, high speed autofocusing while the OS compensates for camera shake.
The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting. The 150mm F2.8 macro focuses down to 1:1 magnification ratio at its minimum focusing distance of 15 inches. The focal length for this lens can be increased due to its compatibility with Sigma APO Tele Converters.
|This large aperture telephoto macro lens incorporates Sigma's original Optical Stabilizer function. SLD glass elements provide excellent correction of all types of aberrations. Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and a floating inner focusing system provides high optical performance from infinity to 1:1 macro. The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures quiet and high speed autofocus as well as full-time manual focusing capability. Attaching Sigma's optional Tele Converters enables photographers to shoot large than 1:1 magnification.|
This telephoto macro lens has a longer working distance than traditional macro lenses. It is perfect when distance between the subject and photographer is important such as when taking pictures of small animals or insects. The long focusing distance and narrow depth-of-field allows selective focusing and less distracting backgrounds. This lens can be used as normal telephoto lens as well.
The lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), ensuring high speed and quiet AF as we as full time manual focus capability.
Three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide correction of various aberrations. This lens has superior peripheral brightness and its distortion is corrected effectively. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides sharp and high contrast images even at the maximum aperture.
This lens has a rounded 9 blade diaphragm which creates an attractive blur to the out of focus area of the image.
