hey folks,
looking at a macro lens... i have read the photozone reviews for both of the above mentioned lenses.. just wondering what the main difference i will see between the 2 would be...i know the main one is minimum focusing distance. is there any other advantages or disadvantages between have a shorter or longer focal length??

105mm vs 150mm is not sooo much geometry-wise.
But the 150mm just seems to be the better/newer/sharper lens. I'd get that one!

Hi Supervillain,

How are you getting on with the Sigma 150mm? I'm planning on getting it too. Are you having success with hand-held shots?

Thanks,
Mark

well mark,
i have not gotten this lens yet! i was thinking about it the other day and was weighing the benefits of VR on the nikon lens. i just finishedreading thomas's review on them both, andthey both have very good results. but i do find i do most of my macro photos laying on the ground with the camera handheld! so i think the VR would be beneficial. unless i can get my paws on one of those tripods that can lower right to the ground or have the articulating center column!!

supervillain! If you can wait another day I might have some preliminary shake-statistics to make your decision easier.
I'll either get them out by this friday or only after mid of September. Let's see...
