Does the new Sigma APO 50-150mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM work with a 1.3 crop body, Like the 1DIII?
If you have used it in that combination, how do you like the results?

I believe the "DC" designation in Sigma's name means APSc only. I don't own the lens or an APSh body.


Dedicated APS-c shooter. Gripped 60D, 60 2.8, 10-22, 15-85, Σ70-200 OS and a big white something or other! Plus a 5D w/28-75.

While it is true that DC means "for APSC", you can mount it on any EF mout camera. The problem you will get to is the amount of vigneting. You can live with it and crop the picture afterwards but that doesn't make much sense.
Seriously, why would you use this lens with a 1D body? If you can afford a 1D Mark III, you might as well get a 70-200 that will do the jo much better than 50-150.

The 50-150 OS is a great lens on APS-C bodies but I think it will have vignetting on an APS-H body

I don't have a 1D body to test it on though so I can't be 100% positive. Hopefully someone will have tried it as I'm curious about this as well.

I used my Sigma 70-200/2.8 HSM OS wit hth e1DIII and it is fantastic. Check the forum in few days, I will be selling the 70-200 because of moving to Leica.

Thanks for the replies.
I am just curious since the Sigma website talks about DC for APS-C sensors, or DG for the full-frame sensors. There is no mention of APS-H sensors.

It will likely work through out most of it's with heavy vignetting toward the wide end.

I still have a couple old Sigma DC lens on hand, that I just tried. The 18-200 can be used on my 1.3 from about 24mm+ and only toward long end on FF. The 17-70 can be used from about 20mm+ on my 1.3 and still heavily vignettes at 70 on FF.

I know a lot of people have been using the new 18-35 on 1.3 crops from 2Xmm+ and on FF at 35mm.

Sigma 70-200 OS does not equal Sigma 50-150 OS. One is made to work with FF (and because of that can also work with APS-H and APS-C) The other is made to work with just APS-C

Any lens made to work with FF will work with APS-H and APS-C sensors as well. As far as I know there have been no lenses made to specifically fit the image circle of an APS-H camera. They are either made to fit a FF sensor or an APS-C sensor.
