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

By B&H Photo's

Offering an impressively versatile range with a portable form factor, the Canon EF-mount 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM from Sigma is a Contemporary-series telephoto zoom characterized by its sophisticated optics and flexible handling. One FLD element and three SLD elements are used to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and a Super Multi-Coating also helps to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.

Balancing the optical design, this lens also features a Hyper Sonic Motor, which 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 removable, rotating tripod collar is included to suit working atop a tripod or monopod.

As part of the Contemporary line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve a balance between convenience and performance, and meshes a compact, lightweight build and versatile handling with notable optical attributes.
Telephoto zoom is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 240-960mm equivalent focal length range.
One 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 element 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.
Compatible with optional Sigma TC-1401 1.4x and TC-2001 2x teleconverters.
A removable, 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.

Fairly fast and sharp, with little struggle in focus; if you are in telephotography than this is better cost effective choice. Works well without any issue with Teleconverter 1.4, Camera body Z6, and D7100. Overall a very good purchase. I enjoy using it!

Pleasantly surprised!

I own and use mostly Canon L series telephoto primes with a few of their L series zooms but I thought I would give this fairly light and versatile Sigma lens a chance since I am growing tired of carrying several heavy lenses on long mountain hikes. It arrived this morning via Fed Ex a day before B&H stated and I took a few test shots before even calibrating it to my camera bodies. I don't expect this lens, which costs only slightly more than a lens hood for my EF 800 f5.6, to perform like my great white Canon primes but it will be more than adequate for hiking. I went with the contemporary rather than the sports version because light weight was a key concern and I have fast primes I use for sports. I will give it a better workout with more careful technique over the next few days but I am very happy what it produced with some casual test shots. First attached image was with the Sigma at full 600mm focal length, f6.3, 1/1250, ISO 6,400 cropped from about 65% of the 1DX Mark III's sensor area.

Exceeded my expectations

This lens takes sharp, clear and quality photos and the focal length is great to have. This is my go to wildlife lens and I couldn't be happier. It also comes with a case to store it in which is awesome.

I was pleasantly surprised with the clarity and quality of this lens for the price! Bottom line, I can't afford the Nikon equivalent. Great lens for birding and all wildlife!

Finally able to capture beautiful birds!

Great build quality, as is the norm with recent Sigma lenses. Haven't yet been able to take it on a trip, but I'm already capturing some nice snapshots in my backyard. Happy with my purchase!

Should I get Teleconverter with sigma 150-600
Asked by: Pam
Whether or not you “should” depends entirely on what kind of shooting you want to do, whether the potential loss of sharpness and/or contrast, and the real loss of a stop or two, is worth being able to reach that far. Plus, you have to consider what body you’ll be using and it’s ability to autofocus at stops lower that f8.

What's the difference between the sport and the contemporary
Asked by: Geoffrey
Basically it's the materials and the build of the lens ... the sport is more durable, water and dust resistant. The sport is definitely built for long outdoor exposure to the elements. All that being said I shoot surfing with the Contemporary model all the time and have had no issues. I just limit it's exposure on high wind (dusty) or rainy days. I'm very happy with mine.

Metabones does not list that lens as compatible.Best is to use the Sigma lens converter. And at this time they have this one, Sigma MC-11 Mount Converter/Lens Adapter (Sigma EF-Mount Lenses to Sony E) B&H # SIMC11C MFR # 89E965.
