    Default Do anyone have the Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM?

    Would like to know how is the performance of this lens, especially in the "real world". Does anyone own a copy? Or have tried it?

    Couldn't find many reviews except for this one: http://www.ephotozine.com/equipment/...fm?test_id=479

    Hi bro, just got my copy two weeks ago.

    Using it as a walkaround len.

    The HSM really impress me. Its quiet and fast response.

    As for CA,boteh and sharpness, I think it wont disppoint you.

    Weight wise, it is only 0.77kg. Anything less than a kg to me is acceptable.

    Price wise, very subjective.

    SO far, not much for a complain for a hobbist like me.

    Hope you get your dream gem soon and happy shooting.

    tried before. pretty good lens. however i would choose a 70-200 anytime..

    personal i find more choices for pairing up without overlapping ur lens range

    Thanks all for your comments.

    I'm considering this lens mainly because of it's weight (or rather lack of weight ). The "usual" 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses all weigh a lot more than 1kg. My arm simply can't take it .

    Shocky: actually there is an advantage of overlapping focal lengths - there is less need to change lenses. So, I don't mind some overlapping.
