Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM

Successor to the 6-year old APO MACRO 150mm F2.8 EX DG HSM, this new lens features an OS design offering the latest optical technology and the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. The Sigma 150mm’s HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures quiet and high speed autofocus as well as full-time manual focus capability.

150mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM

Medium telephoto macro lens incorporating Sigma’s Optical Stabiliser

The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the Sigma APO MACRO 150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM, a large aperture medium telephoto macro lens which incorporates Sigma’s original Optical Stabilizer function.

Successor to the APO MACRO 150mm F2.8 EX DG HSM, introduced to market in October 2004, this new OS design offers the latest optical technology. A floating focusing system moves two different lens groups in the optical path to different positions. This system compensates for astigmatic aberration and spherical aberration and provides extremely high optical performance from infinity to 1:1 Macro.

Three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction of all types of aberrations and the Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting. This lens has superior peripheral brightness and provides sharp, high contrast images even at the maximum apertures.

Equipped with Sigma’s proprietary OS (Optical Stabiliser) function, this lens offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures quiet and high speed autofocus as well as full-time manual focus capability.

This lens has a rounded 9 blade diaphragm creating a smooth blur to the out of focus areas of the image. It is also possible to use this lens with Sigma’s optional APO Tele Converters.

THE SPECIFICATIONS
Minimum Aperture F22 Minimum Focusing Distance 38cm
Lens Construction 19 Elements in 13 Groups Maximum Magnification 1:1
Angle of View 16.4° Filter Size 72mm
No. of Diaphragm Blades 9 pcs Lens Hood Bayonet-type
Weight TBA SRP TBA
Dimensions Diameter 79.6mm x Length 150mm

  2. Dear Sirs. I bought an used Sigma 150mm f/2.8 apo hsm for Nikon. My camera is D5100. Since this lens has no focus switch...how can I set it for auto focus? Do you have an user guide for this lens? Please, some help. Thanks.
