Sigma 150mm F2.8 APO Macro DG For Sale
 
This lens has had hardly any use and is now hopefully going towards funding a 7-14mm F4 Lens.

The lens comes complete with caps bag and boxed. There are a few minor scuff marks on the hood which is mainly due to the textured matt finish, the lens itself is unmarked. There has been a filter fitted since the day of purchase and the optics are clean and the lens works perfectly. Since these lenses are hard to come by and quite sort after I am really unsure of the asking price as I have not seen one for sale for quite some time so I am open to all sensible offers. Postage to be agreed.

Images of the lens can be viewed at the link below.

Thanks for the heads up. We're they four thirds fit?

Having tried all the macro lenses for both FT and MFT I find this is far and away the best. It's one of only two FT lenses I have retained. Well worth buying!

Condition is very important,some of these lenses recently sold on eBay were not in great condition.One of them was an absolute dog.I would be asking more for a lens in great condition.
I recently bought one and I am delighted with it.

Hi there xp1

I bought my 150mm sigma in November last year for £301 plus postage. In my view that was a bargain as it was complete with case, tripod mount, UV filter and both caps. Certainly you would not be able to get me to part with it for that price! A couple of people here on the forum have expressed interest in getting one - hopefully they will contact you to make a deal acceptable to you.

Cheers,

Ralph.

I have the Nikon variant and the resolving power is just fantastic, better than the 105VR IMHO.

Thanks

The only Olympus mount version of this lens was 4/3's so you would need an MMF-3 or 2 for the E-M1 (AF is unreliable on other M4/3's models but can be used with MF on them OK).

Thanks - just getting confused by some eBay offerings/sales that say micro 4/3

They will say that about Canon Nikon or any old mount on some adverts then in brackets it will tell what it actually fits.

I wish someone would buy this its got me thinking and I should not be buying anything atm.
