Overview

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 is a "portrait" so-to-speak of a gorgeous Great Dane that I was photographing. It was extremely low light and he was moving quite a bit. The optical stabilization features of this lens allowed me to photograph hand-held with a relatively slow shutter-speed and tack-sharp results.

Spiraled Sapphires

Sigma 150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro 1/125 sec f 11 100

The SD1 coupled to the brand new 150mm f/2.8 Macro OS were exactly the right combination for making an eye stopping photograph of the two and a half inch pin crafted by designer Marie Scarpa. The eleven sapphires each in a different color or shade mounted in gold and silver wire required both extreme resolution as well as dead on color fidelity.

Goldfish, from Curious Critters

150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro 1/250 second f16 100

Fish photographed from the side are interesting. When they begin to face the camera, another dimension is added. But what happens when the fish starts talking to you? ?O-ooooh! Hello-ooooo! Ites good to see you! I do like visitors.? Thates what I imagined as I wrote the words uttered by this mouth-agape goldfish, who appears 22 inches long, spread over two pages, in my childrenes picture book, Curious Critters. You could find this goldfish swimming around the biology lab at Ashland University, where I teach. To learn more about this and other images in Curious Critters, visit www.curious-critters.com.

Cedar Waxwing, from Curious Critters

150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro 1/160 second f22 100

This is not your textbook cedar waxwing photo. Think ?bad feather day!? When I photograph animals in the Curious Critters series, I never know what they will do next, so you have to be ready. In this case, the little guy all of the sudden puffed up his feathers and began to shake. Voila!

Bush Katydid, from Curious Critters

150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro 1/250 second f16 100

No, this is not Photoshopped. She was really bubble-gum pink. I attended a naturalist workshop in western Ohio, and one group came back from the field with this rare color morph. (Besides pink, bush katydids can also be yellow or orange.) In my childrenes picture book, Curious Critters, this lady bemoans her unusual color...that is, until she realizes that her unique coloration might have its advantages. At the bookes web site, www.curious-critters.com, I offer an inside perspective on photographing for and writing Curious Critters.

Eastern Box Turtle, from Curious Critters

150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro 1/25 second f22 100

Based on this box turtlees scute rings, hees about fifty years old. Holding him in the palm of your hand, ites hard to imagine what hees seen in half-a-century. Now imagine this: one turtle on Marthaes Vineyard, MA, is over 150 years-old. Ites age life has been documented from time to time by newspaper reporters, who have used markings on its shell to verify its identity and age. Unfortunately, overcollecting and habitat destruction have placed many eastern box turtle populations on the brink of collapse.

Black Swallowtail, from Curious Critters

150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro 1/50 second f22 100

Always looking to push my photography in new directions, I decided to forego fast shutter speed and try to capture the flight of a butterfly. 1/50 of a second proved just long enough to catch blurring

Orchid

150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro 1/160 sec F22 800

This is one of the first images I took with my new Sigma 150mm macro.  This image of a store bought orchid was taken outside with the sun providing the backlighting. I used one of my printed green backgrounds as well as an LED video light, silver reflectors, and flash to illuminate the shadow side.  Using printed backgrounds behind your macro subjects can give you perfect results every time.
