Is it the IS version?  Optically, they are both excellent, I like to handhold my camera, even for most close focus shots, so the IS on my 100L is nice for that.  If you are using a tripod, IS is unnecessary.

ecka:
No, it is the non-IS Sigma 150/2.8 Macro. No tripod either. None of those would help much while catching something "dancing in the wind" :). I used 1/320 SS.

Yes, I try to use as high of a shutter speed as possible. A wide open aperture makes it easy, but if I need real depth of field, then at f/16 it gets tougher.

Yes, I agree, but for moving subjects IS wouldn't help much. Maybe for framing.
