150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | S
High action-capture performance
Designed and executed for the most demanding types of photography, the Sigma 150-600mm 5-6.3 DG HSM OS Sports lens is the new standard for telephoto zooms. Boasting 2 FLD glass elements (performance equal to fluorite) and 3 SLD glass elements, the new Sigma 150-600mm Sport produces incredibly sharp images y through the entire zoom range. Chromatic aberration is controlled at the long end of the focal length through the optimized design of the glass elements and a dust and splash proof construction ensures a high degree of durability.
An updated optical stabilizer (OS) features an accelerometer for improved panning photography both horizontally and vertically, essential for birding, wildlife and motorsports photography. The Sigma 150-600 Sports also touts a new zoom lock switch that can be locked at any focal length and a new manual override (MO) switch is incorporated as an option which is activated by rotating the focus ring while using the autofocus. This state-of-the-art lens is equipped with advanced Sigma technology including an optimized, quieter AF, water/oil repellent coating on front and rear elements and Mount Conversion service compatibility. As with all Sport line lenses, the Sigma 150-600 works with the Sigma USB dock for maximum customization allowing for firmware updates and adjustments to the focus limiter, AF speed and OS view.
Accelerator sensor enables panning photography both in vertical and horizontal position.
The OS (Optical Stabilizer) function using an accelerator sensor has been incorporated to ensure high accuracy. OS Mode 1 is suitable for general photography, and Mode 2 is ideal for panning shooting for motor sports etc. With Mode 2, the accelerator sensor works effectively to minimize blur while shooting by detecting whether the camera is positioned vertically or horizontally.
*This lens cannot be used on film SLR cameras with the exception of the Nikon F6, Canon EOS-1V.
*Effect of Mode 2 is limited to panning shooting in horizontal direction.
USB Dock Compatibility
Sigma has developed special software (SIGMA Optimization Pro) that can update the lens firmware and adjust parameters such as focus. In addition, the lenses from our Sports line have customizable AF speed, focus limiter and OS function. The “Custom Mode Switch” is the device for further customization on the dedicated lenses.

SIGMA 150-600MM LENS CANON 5-6.3 SPORTS DG LENS
Top customer reviews
First let me say, I originally didn't think I was going to purchase it. I thought that renting a 500mm Canon F4 would suffice in situations where I'd be photographing birds and other long distance subjects. But when I thought about it, renting a prime like that for more than a week or so can be really expensive. And when you have an enormously expensive lens like a 500mm F4 or 600mm F4 on loan, you can never really relax (or at least I can't) because images of the lens smacking into the concrete haunt you.
Also, the Sigma 150-600mm looked like it might be very useful for daytime sports events like those I sometimes photograph. I use a Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 for a lot of that but sometimes, I have felt myself yearning for more range.
04-11-2015: Maiden voyage with the lens at the National Zoo in Washington DC
My initial impressions of the lens have been very favorable. The lens feels a lot more "professional" than the Sigma 50-500mm (aka "Bigma") that I used to have. I hate using cliches but the all-metal (or is it almost all-metal body) comes across as "built like a tank."
With that solid construction comes weight. The lens is not a light one to shoot with (carrying it in a backpack is fine). I was able to handhold it some at the Zoo (the day was nice and bright so I could ratchet up the shutter speed enough to do that without having to move the ISO up to ruinous levels. Nevertheless, I found myself tiring enough over two hours that I found it much easier to prop up the lens on the fences enclosing the animal exhibits. I am pretty certain that most people will want to use the lens with a monopod or tripod. I'm definitely planning to use the lens with a tripod on my upcoming trip to Svalbard.
I'll let the images I've included with this review speak for the sort of pictures the lens is capable of capturing (I used it with a Canon EOS 7D Mark II). I selected as the samples ones where the focal length was over 500mm. By and large I was pleased with what I captured.
One feature that I thought was pretty useful was a focus limitation switch that would allow you to specify the ranges at which the autofocus would work and when it would not. This helped ward off some of the "hunting phenomenon."
So to wrap up this installment of my review, I am pleased with the lens and I look forward to my next outing with it.
For those who may wonder, I purchased this lens (at list price) from Roberts Cameras a couple of weeks ago.
Update (photos from my trip to Svalbard in June 2015)
Just a few thoughts ... I had a great time up in Svalbard (the Norwegian Arctic island complex). The Sigma 150-600mm played a key role in helping me do that by getting what I think are some pretty good shots of Polar Bears walking near my ship (but not really near).
This said, the lens was a bit heavy lugging around on hikes on the coast...but not much worse I think than what it would be like lugging a Canon 500/600/800mm instead.
I'm sure that you know this lens is heavy. I really wouldn't recommend using it for a long day if you are planning on hand holding it. The lens hood is very sturdy and I feel like this lens can take some abuse without any worries. If you need a long range lens and don't want to spend a fortune look no further.

Optically great. I'd rather have 600mm fix lens with faster aperture however.Read more
