Sigma 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Overview

By B&H Photo's

A single zoom covering a huge 10x range, the Canon EF-mount Sigma 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Lens is a versatile optic well-suited for a variety of subjects, including portraiture, sports, and wildlife. Its advanced optical design incorporates one SLD element and three FLD elements, which help to greatly suppress chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range for improved clarity and color accuracy. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied to individual elements to control flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions.

Complementing the optical performance is a Hyper Sonic Motor that provides quick and a quiet autofocus performance, along with an Intelligent OS system that minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to four stops. The physical design of the lens also incorporates several seals to guard against dust and moisture, and a water- and oil-repellent coating has been applied to the exposed elements to prevent moisture, fingerprints, or smudges from sticking to the surface.

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.
Wide-ranging super telephoto zoom is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount cameras, however is also suitable for APS-C models where it provides a 96-960mm equivalent focal length range.
One Special Low Dispersion (SLD) element and three F Low Dispersion (FLD) elements are featured in the optical design and help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy, as well as spherical aberrations for reduced distortion and improved sharpness throughout the zoom range.
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.
Front and rear lens elements have been treated with a water- and oil-repellent coating to benefit working in harsh environmental conditions.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
The integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) realizes quick and quiet autofocusing, 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.
An Intelligent Optical Stabilizer system minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to four stops to benefit making sharper imagery when shooting handheld.
The lens is constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material, along with traditional metals, for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations.
The bayonet mount is constructed from brass for ensured accuracy and durability. Additionally, rubber sealing is incorporated in the mount design to render it dust- and splash-resistant.
Tripod collar has a rotating design and the replaceable foot is Arca-type compatible for easy mounting.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.
Compatible with optional Sigma 1.4x and 2x teleconverters.

Sigma 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Reviews

Regarding my previous review about the zoom lock-up Issue.

By DOUGLAS
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-17

Sent back to Sigma and got it back within a week. They replaced the zoom mechanism under warranty. Have used the lens all summer on several jobs, and all is well. It's heavy, but still preferable for me over my Canon 100-400 Mk II zoom, which keeps losing its lens hood every time I have taken it out. This is still my must-carry lens, along with the Canon 24-70 to cover the whole focal range.

The Best Lens

I have been using this lens for a year. I took it to Kamchatka 2 times, Brazil (Pantanal) and so on. I am really sure it is the best lens with a brilliant price. More useful than 150-600. The short side of 60mm is very helpful when the object is too close to you. I used 60-600 in different temperature 35-40C in Brazil and -35C in Mountain Altay. Need a proof? Look at my attached pictures. A picture is worth a thousand words)

Initially delighted with this lens, but recently it let me down. Was shooting at a WTA tournament last week, and had already taken 4000+ images with it, when the zoom mechanism locked up at 300mm. Had been getting outstanding images up to that point. Efforts to free up the zoom were fruitless. Have sent the lens back to Sigma for evaluation and hopefully warranty service. Kudos to B&H for immediately resending me my invoice/receipt to prove to Sigma the purchase date. Will update again once after hearing back from Sigma.

Great lens, but f-stop sensitive

By DOUGLAS

Have used this lens for long distance bird photography with the Canon D5 Mk IV and the Canon R5, with adapter. Results at 600mm wide open were spotty, needing strong lighting, and definitely unusable with the Sigma 1.4 extender. However, stopped down to f/8, which I admit is my go-to aperture for most shooting, it produced outstanding results whatever the zoom setting. and even, if to a slightly lesser degree, with the 1.4 extender. My best shots in this 100 yd+ shooting setting are still with the Canon 300 L Mk II + 1.4 extender, but that's at a huge financial penalty, and of course I lose the zoom flexibility so vital for many outdoor and sports challenges. Fast autofocus with either camera, but especially with the R5's eye-identification focus feature. I have the Canon 100-400 L Mk II, but it's packed away since I got used to this Sigma. Heavy yes, but at my age (73) I use a monopod for most mobile location shooting anyway. With the Wimberly MH-100 mono-head on a sturdy monopod, easy to carry and lock onto elusive prey.

Amazing Lens

This is an incredible lens. It is my new favorite super telephoto.

Good combination with the Z9 for birds and wildlife!

By Chad

The Short - its a great lens and I do recommend it for use on the Z9 for birds and wildlife. I love shooting variable zoom and this is almost perfect. The Long - I own the Z70-200 f2.8 and it is incredible - sharp, fast and virtually every shot turns out, literally PERFECT! However it is not long enough for the majority of wildlife and bird photo opportunities I encounter around home and I did not want to wait any longer for the new fixed Z lens to ship or the desired Z200-600 to go into production. The Good - In bright light its fantastic, works great with the Z9 focus system and the images are sharp. I am a pixel peeking perfectionist who does not edit and the low light photos are good and getting better. Only owned the lens for a week and am rapidly improving the low light photos since the Z9 higher ISO is incredible. The Bad - Comparing it to the 70-200 and my F mount 300mm f2.8 the Sigma lens is a little softer during golden hour and soft at twilight. I am confident they could easily sharpened in editing to be crystal clear. The focus is as fast as the F mount but slower the the Z mount, but all are really fast in my opinion and stick to the subject the same. The slight dip in performance should not be a shocking revelation for anyone as I'm comparing it to a Nikkor S line f2.8 lens. Also, It is every bit as heavy as advertised. I shoot RAW photos that I couldn't upload so unfortunately the examples are screenshots relay what is I just explained. The Ugly - I already own the Tamron 150-600's. The G1 version has been fantastic for me and my go to lens on the D500 the last five years but does not work with the Z9 autofocus. That being said I would give the Sigma the edge in comparison. The G2 version images have only been ok and not up to my standards on several other camera bodies and did not improve with the Z9.

Can this lens be used for motor racing events?? I currently use a prime 300 2.8 is i need to add tele converter to make it longer and remove it when i do not need it. or what do you suggest for 2nd option lens??
Asked by: John
Yes this 60-600 would work well for motor racing if you currently use 300mm 2.8 and want a longer or wider lens where you easily zoom. The downside is the aperture it narrower on the 60-600 so not as good in low light. Motor racing during the day shouldn't be a problem though. Another option would be a Sigma 150-600 Sports if you don't need to go as wide as 60mm. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1082152-REG/sigma_150_600mm_f_5_6_3_dg_os.html

It has two holes as commented earlier. However, the foot is designed for a quick release mount. Why would you not put a QR clamp on your tripod or monopod for interchangeability or convenience?

Does this work with part # Sigma TC-2001 2x Teleconverter for Canon EF?
Asked by: Eddie
Yes, the Sigma TC-2001 2x Teleconverter for Canon EF may connect to the Sigma 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports for your usage needs. However, do note that you will have to focus the lens manually as autofocus would not be compatible with this setup. The lens would become the equivalent of a 120-1200mm f/9-13 lens.
