Report on Sigma 150mm for super macro

28 May 2014 - 08:47 AM

On my recent trip to the Philippines, only one day, at Apo Island, was the visability good enough to use the 150mm. All other days I needed to be closer to the subject. As a result I was only able to make three dives with the 150mm.


Even in clear water using the 150 limits you to small subjects. However, using the +5 Sub See yeilds an good macro shot.(see feather star shrimp). However I did not think the shots were as crisp as with a 105.


I have not given up on the 150mm but so far I am unimpressed.

Advice on the Sigma 150mm 2.8

03 April 2014 - 09:01 AM

I have plenty of experience with the 105 VR macro qnd +5 and +10 diopters but have used the Sigma lens infrequently. What can anyone tell me about how the rig handles underwater compared to the 105 and their experiences and results using it.

I am diving mostly muck stuff in Dumagette the first week Moaboal the second. I have a D-300 with dual z-240 strobes in Seatool housing.
