Group Description

The Sigma APO MACRO 150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is a large aperture medium telephoto macro
lens which incorporates Sigma’s original Optical Stabilizer function. The successor to the APO
MACRO 150mm F2.8 EX DG HSM, introduced to market in October 2004, offers the latest optical
design technology and weather-resistant design throughout for use in harsh conditions. 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 and high contrast images
even at the maximum apertures. Equipped with Sigma’s own proprietary OS (Optical Stabilizer)
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
