  By Ryley Smith

 

Sigma has announced a new sports lens with outstanding levels of performance, functionality, and build quality! Welcome the Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Sports! This ultra-telephoto lens delivers ultra-sharp results even on the highest resolution cameras. Fast and accurate autofocus, beautiful bokeh throughout its zoom range, Dual Action Zoom system, dust and splash resistant structure, customizable switches and more, the Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Sports is ready to jump into action and take on any challenge!

The Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Sports offers outstanding optical performance throughout its zoom range and at all apertures. The 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS consists of 25 elements in 15 groups, including special types of high-performance glass that ensures precise control of different types of aberrations. This gives images the resolution and clearest detail not only at the telephoto end (around 600mm) but also throughout its entire zoom range. 

The 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS was designed with image quality in the out-of-focus areas in mind. With attractive compression and beautiful bokeh for creating eye-catching images. Through improvements to the optical and mechanical designs, the lens has achieved high resistance to ghosting and flare. This ensures sharp and high-contrast images even in strong sunlight or in backlit conditions.

At the wide end of 150mm, the Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Sports has an impressive minimum focusing distance of 58 cm. On the L-Mount, the use of two dedicated teleconverters will allow you to shoot with AF up to 1200mm. With these features, this new ultra-telephoto lens is the perfect tool for tackling a broad range of shooting situations, giving you greater freedom in your choice of composition.

With an AF actuator controlled by a stepping motor, the Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Sports combines fast and quiet autofocus with excellent tracking of moving objects. A high-precision magnetic sensor enables highly accurate positioning for fast and high-precision AF. This is particularly impressive on an ultra-telephoto lens where the focus lens has to move a significant distance. The OS function delivers effective image stabilization that offers an advantage of approximately four stops, which is ideal for hand-held shooting at slower shutter speeds. The lens also has three AFL buttons to which you can assign various functions on the camera side depending on the camera. This ensures that key settings can be customized to suit your shooting style and be accessed easily so that you can adapt quickly to changing conditions.

The 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS combines the build quality that upholds the Sigma Sports line standards with excellent operability, taking into account the different shooting environments and modes of operation expected with an ultra-telephoto lens. A dust and splash-resistant construction, combined with a water and oil repellent coating applied to the front element, gives you peace of mind even in a harsh shooting environment. 

The lens features a Dual Action Zoom, which supports both straight zoom and ring zoom, allowing you to change the angle of view quickly and intuitively. There is also a newly incorporated Zoom Torque switch, with which you can change the resistance of the zoom ring and lock it at the wide end, ensuring ease of zoom operation and the elimination of zoom creep.
