Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Overview

Versatile with its reach, the Nikon F-mount 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM from Sigma is a Sports-series lens offering a flexible telephoto zoom range, along with an advanced optical and physical design. A series of low dispersion elements are used to greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range and contribute to greater clarity and color accuracy. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been employed to control ghosting and flare for improved contrast when working in strong lighting conditions.

Complementing the optics is a Hyper Sonic Motor that provides especially fast and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override. An Optical Stabilizer also works to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Additionally, a rotating tripod collar is integrated into the lens's design to suit working atop a tripod or monopod.

As part of the Sports line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to offer excellent optical performance, speed, and other customizable features that make it an ideal choice for wildlife, sports, action, and other fast-moving subjects.
Telephoto zoom is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 225-900mm equivalent focal length range.
Two F Low Dispersion (FLD) and three Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements are featured in the optical design and help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
Integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), along with a rear focus system, realizes quick and quiet autofocus, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. The HSM also permits full-time manual focus control simply by rotating the focus ring at any time.
Optical Stabilizer system minimizes the appearance of camera shake to benefit making sharper imagery when shooting handheld.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
Dust- and splash-resistant design suits this lens's use in inclement weather conditions and a water- and oil-repellent coating has also been applied to the front and rear elements to aid in cleaning.
Constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations. Additionally, a brass bayonet affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.
Zoom lock switch can be activated at any focal length to prevent accidental and unwanted zoom adjustment.
A fixed, rotating tripod collar offers well-balanced support for photographing atop a tripod or monopod with either vertical or horizontal shooting orientations.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.
Compatible with optional Sigma TC-1401 1.4x and TC-2001 2x teleconverters.

Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Reviews

High Quality Lens

By Michael

Images from this lens appear to be fantastic so far after a few weeks of shooting. Sometimes the lens has trouble focusing precisely, however this is my first telephoto lens so I am still getting used to it.

If you enjoy outdoor/wildlife photography this is a must have. Admittedly I am a amateur, but this lens makes me feel like a pro. Took some time getting used to it and highly recommend shooting from a tripod. I am loving everything about this purchase.

I have run this lens thru the ringer in 30 days. It bounced down a cliff with me, has been in the rain and even took a short unexpected swim with me. The pictures are sharp! Is it as sharp as 13k 600 mm prime lens? no but for under 2k it is a great lens. I use it on a D750 and a D780.

So far So good

I am new to photography and still learning a lot. This lens has been fun so far and has been easy to use and learn. I have it on a very sturdy tripod as it is big and heavy. It does make a weird humming type sound at times which is annoying as well.

should really be a 4.9999 star review

Images are sharp on all settings from 150,200, 300, etc.up to 600. Super impressed and waited for the price on the daily deal and got it for 1499. Coming from a canon 70-200 some will say its backwards the zoom vs focus rings. The zoom ring does take effort to turn it---- I did see that the USB dock can adjust the zoom strength, but now I have to get the dock to make this adjustment. Will probably call in tech support and see how much of a difference it will make. But images are super sharp and worth every penny. You can shoot handheld but not for very long the lens is 7lbs. I shoot with a monopod and now in the market for a gimbal for the monopod.

Incredible With My R5

I've wanted to try this lens for some time. When B & H offered me the chance and I chose to take it, I had no idea I would receive the super lens that arrived. (I've owned many long telephoto zoom lens and many super telephoto prime lens. Zooms have included the Canon EF 100-400mm L, EF 100-400mm L II, EF 70-300mm L, Tamron 150-600mm II, Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 Sports, and numerous 70-200mm models by Canon and Tamron. I have owned eight Canon super telephotos (one diffractive optics and seven L series.) I also own Canon's RF 600mm and 800mm diffractive optics lens. I own and have owned numerous 1.4 and 2x teleconverters made by Canon, Sigma, and Tamron. Thus, I've had broad experience with which to compare my Sigma 150-600 mm Sports lens for Canon EF. While I expected the Sigma 150-600 mm EF to be sturdy and sharp, I could not have imagined the quality of images it would produce, coupled with my Canon R5 and its EF lens adapter. Images from the Sigma compare favorably with ones produced by my Canon 600 mm f/4 L II, both without tele-conversion and with a 1.4 teleconverter. (The R5's ability to autofocus well above f/8 and its relatively low noise levels at high ISOs enable me to combine reasonably fast shutter speeds with the lens stopped down at least a stop for shooting birds and creatures. Reviewing my captures on the R5's super high definition LCD view finder, I can zoom them in as far as it will allow and still see incredibly detailed super-sharp images. (While the combination allows for stopping down, the lens produces incredible images even wide open.) No other zoom I have owned is capable of capturing such fine detail at 840mm on a full frame sensor of 45 megapixels. The only arguable negative about this Sigma is its weight, but its extreme durability, reliability, and weather resistance easily offset that factor. Zoomed in with the hood reversed it takes up much less space than a 600mm f/4; yet it can take the place of several telephoto primes while producing images comparable to such an assortment. For years I have felt that one must accept the bulk and weight of such primes to obtain the quality of images they produce. All of a sudden I am forced to revisit and consider revising that opinion. I really hit the jackpot when I received my Deal Zone special!

Loving it so far

I have had the Sigma 150-600mm Sport for about 2 weeks. I have only gotten to shoot with it 2 days and did a couple shots of the moon at night. I like to shoot birds in flight and a lot of water foul. The lens seems to focus fast and smooth. I was able to track and follow birds easily keeping them in focus in servo mode. I even got a few good shots of Belted Kigngfishers in flight, they are little speed demons. The last day out a Bald Eagle showed up to finish the day and I was able to get some decent shots of him. The shots I did of the moon were nice and crispy. The lens is very heavy, I almost always shoot with a Gimbal. I have not tried shooting any hand held shots. I did add the extender the first day out for a few shots. I was able to focus and track on a vulture circling at about 100 yards. I don't think I would ever use the extender for birds in flight but I think it would do well for large wildlife. So far I am very happy with the lens and I am looking forward to shooting with it some more in the near future.

I am trying to decide between this lens and the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens for my Nikon D5300 body. I see where the Sigma is about 1 1/4 lb heavier, but does anyone have experience with both and have a suggestion on which one would be best for bird photography and little league sports?
Asked by: Carl
I have both the Nikon and Sigma. I would go with the Nikon 200-500.Almost impossible to hand hold the Sigma. And the focus on the Nikon is way way better too.
