Re: Sigma 150mm f2.8 Macro

If it wasn't for the credit crunch and the fact we have another addition to the family in around 8 weeks I would have snapped this up without a doubt.

This lens is on my "wanted" list but its more than my lifes worth at the moment

Good luck with the sale though

Still up for sale.


C'mon guys & Girls, this is a very difficult lens to get hold of in 4/3rds mount and does not dissapoint either as a fantastic macro or as a 300mm F2.8 Equiv telephoto.

Re: Sigma 150mm f2.8 Macro

Every time I spot this I lust after it - the lens has a very good reputation! I don't think I'd use it though, as I have a Zuiko 50-200mm with an EX-25.
