Who knew this column of ants you've been documenting was so touchy? One caterpillar strays into the path and the next thing you know it's being carried off with the stream. Better to get the dramatic close-ups from a little distance. This Sigma Photo 150mm f/2.8 macro telephoto is an excellent choice for getting great nature shots without spooking your subjects. With a nearly silent Hyper-Sonic Motor powering the precise autofocus, it'll almost be like you're not there.
It belongs in your camera bag too
While this macro lens is optimized for full-frame cameras, APS-C cameras can benefit as well. The focal length will increase by a factor of 1.5X on most APS-C cameras (1.6X on Canon's APS-C models), so this 150mm lens will have a 225mm equivalent length on many non-full-frame cameras. With three separate mountings to choose from, this lens has the versatility to find a home in almost any photographer's bag.
Carefully machined low-dispersion optical elements and proprietary coatings yield a lens that is sharp, clear, and free of artifacts like color fringing, ghosting, flaring, and distortion. And built-in optical stabilization reduces the effect of shaky hands on pictures with slower shutter speeds.

Features and Specs

Overview: The Sigma Macro 150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is designed for full frame cameras, but can also be used with smaller APS-C size image sensors (equivalent focal length: 225mm). The lens is recommended for photographing weddings and events, portraits, nature and wildlife, and Macro photography. This lens has the Canon EF-mount.
Sigma Technology: The lens has the following Sigma technology built-in:
- Low-Dispersion Glass: Sigma uses selected low-dispersion glass to correct chromatic aberration. Sigma uses Extra-Low Dispersion (ELD), Special Low Dispersion (SLD), and "F" Low Dispersion glass elements.
- Aspherical Lens: Aspherical lenses are used for outstanding optical performance and to keep the lenses compact.
- Super Multi-layer Coating: Sigma's own Super Multi-layer Coating suppresses lens flare and ghosting by preventing reflections within the lens.
- Optical Stabilizer (OS): Sigma's Optical Stabilizer technology uses two sensors to detect and compensate for camera shake. There are two OS modes: Mode 1 detects and corrects unwanted vertical and horizontal motion, and is ideal for shooting with the camera in a fixed position. Mode 2 is recommended for use when panning, detecting and correcting vertical motion only.
- Rounded Diaphragm: Using a rounded diaphragm instead of a polygonal shaped one produces pleasingly rounded out-of-focus light points when opened to near maximum aperture.
- Inner and Rear Focus: Sigma uses a focusing system that only moves elements within the lens barrel to avoid a changing barrel length as you focus.
- Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM): The Hyper Sonic Motor uses ultrasonic waves to drive the autofocus mechanism. This extremely quiet operation helps avoid disturbing photographic subjects, and isn't picked up by the microphone while recording video.
