Review: Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 HSM APO II

After a long time and several Art and Contemporary lenses, the 50-150mm f2.8is the first of the older EX product series that I purchased and used intensively. As it already has a successor, the distinctly bigger OS version with incorporated image stabilizer and enhanced optical formula, I was able to get hold of it fairly ...

The bokeh of the 50-150mm f2.8 (and other lenses) can be further improved

The Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 has a very nice bokeh already, but when I edited the photos from the last two photo tours in SPP tonight I noticed that you can further improve the bokeh with just a few clicks. I’m too tired now to explain the simple work flow in detail, but I can tell ...

Unlike the list posted at the beginning of July, this one doesn’t seem to be based on rumors and insider information, but rather on speculation by the SR admin. Some of the mentioned lenses (50-150/2.8 Sports, 70-200/2.8 Sports, 70-300/4-5.6 ...

What Do You Use Short Tele Lenses For?

I’ve had the Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 for a few weeks now and shoot the same subjects I would shoot with my shorter focal lengths. That is to say: cats, dogs, flowers, plants, insects, etc. Maybe the 50-150mm is not quite the right lens or focal length for me. Maybe I just don’t know how to shoot ...
