This is a superb lens, that matches the optical quality of the equivalent offerings by Nikon and Canon, but at a much lower price. The lens is well built and comes complete with a detachable tripod collar. I have had mine for just over a year, and it has performed excellently to the point where it is the lens I leave on the camera unless I really need to use something else. Downsides? It is a little large and heavy, and sometimes the autofocus can be a little slow. However, if you want f2.8 in a 150mm lens, a bit of weight is something you have to accept, and autofocus is not always useful in extreme close ups anyway. To sum up, as good as the competition, but without the competition's prices

If you're looking for a macro or medium telephoto, you could do a lot worse than get one of these.

I've had this for quite a while now, and my impression is;

Weight:
Yes, this is quite a heavy lens, but when you see the size of the glass that makes it f2.8 you can see why. If you're doing macro photography this can work against you if your tripod isn't very sturdy, but getting a lighter but slower lens wouldn't really be much of a gain.

Construction:
Very well built, sturdy and generally a lovely finish, like other Sigma EX lenses. The tripod mount opens up (unlike the Sigma 150-500) so you can detatch the camera/lens from the mount with the twist of a screw. (The Sigma 150-500 slides off the lens mount end, so you need to detatch it from the camera if you want to remove the tripod mount).

Performance:
Very bright indeed, which is ideal for close-ups where manual focussing is generally the order of the day. It's very sharp too, so generally if you zoom into an image you'll see the limitations of the camera before that of the lens. It's a nice medium-telephoto too, although you need be prepared to walk a bit, as with all prime lenses you're generally either too close to too far away.

Focussing is actually very good (on my D90) when doing macro work and is near-silent.

I'd suggest the 150mm over say the 105mm, because you can get much further away from the subject for the same magnification. That may sound obvious when using as a telephoto, but for macro work you can sit a good couple of feet further from the subject than when using the 105mm (I've tried both). Makes a difference when you don't want to disturb insects or crawl into undergrowth!

In all a fantastic choice for macro.
