    Default New addition to my gear

    I ordered a Sigma APO Macro 150mm f2.8 EX DG HSM from Amazon last week. It arrived today, haven't had time to put lens thru it's paces yet. I'll post a review when I do. So far it is compatible with my EC 14 and it's focus is really sharp.

    That's one of the lenses on my Canadian wish list! Please, please, please post pics and feelings... like how the HSM performs in speed and accuracy.

    Cheers!

    I'm still in process of field testing the lens, I've been using the EC14 with it so far. I heard people say the HSM was noisy, but from what i've experienced so far it's a quiet and smooth operation. The speed is a little slower then the 50-200. Accuracy is right on
    Here a few pics:




    I will post more comments and pics in the review section
    of forum later.... ;-)

    SLOWER than the 50-200.... ouch. I guess I am not sure what I should compare it too, but the 50-200 does not seem all that fast to me...

    I wonder if the battery grip helps the focus speed of the Sigma?

    Congrats nonetheless -- it looks like a very nice lens (and I am not sure IF the focus speed matters that much for macro shots).
