Yes I agree. The Sigma 150 is great for macro and also a superb general purpose telephoto (so long as you don't min autofocus being a bit slow). The image quality on mine is breathtaking, and f/2.8 at 150 is excellent light gathering (though of course Olympus used to make an f/2 150mm - the "little tuna" - but that was expensive and huge and heavy and not a macro lens).
