This page is 1 year old??! Wow.
Anyway, I'm damn happy with mine. Like a 135L that does macro.

Same here. I've bought and sold many lenses, but Sigma 150Macro has been with me since I've got my first DSLR and it is here to stay, I think :).

Looking at macro lenses and very impressed with this thread's samples.

Please confirm this is the same lens (or a newer version?): http://www.amazon.com ...S9G&coliid=I2C95TSN​63ZUAWexternal link

UPDATE: OK, nevermind. I see now that is the new version with optical stabilization. Doesn't seem to be weather sealed at all though. Too bad. Still, seems great.

Thanks.

This is for the new model with OS. It's about double the price of the old one, which according to at least one review site (SLR Gear, I think) is actually sharper. Certainly they are both fine lenses--and OS might be worth a little hit in sharpness for macro work.

Yes, it looks like a really great lens! And maybe the better choice over the Canon 100mm L for bug shots given the better reach. The price is not much more. The only loss is weather sealing, which is not a deal breaker but would've been good to have. Oh well.

EDIT: OK, so I just read that this lens DOES have dust and weather sealing! That's great.

Thanks, but I've just realized that I posted these in the wrong thread. I used the shorty-40 STM pancake :).
