If anyone has a busted 150 with a good front element I'd be interested. Mine has fungus on the front element and some disassembly showed that it appears to be between the front elements (the elements are glued/cemented together etc) :(

Did you try contacting Sigma about this issue? If it's a manufacturing defect, they may repair it for free, just because they might want to learn what they did wrong.

Hi Hatch, these images are beautiful ... i'm considering buy this lens, there are two versions:

- Sigma 150mm f2.8 EX APO Macro EX DG HSM
- Sigma 150mm f2.8 EX APO Macro EX DG HSM OS

If i'm not wrong you are using the first version (without OS), is that correct?

Have you ever tried the Tamron SP AF 180mm macro f3.5 Di LD IF? In that case which you consider best?

Thank you for you feedback.

PS: sorry for my english, spanis is my natural language
