Sigma 737101 Overview

This Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM Lens is for DSLR cameras with a Canon EF lens mount. It is an ultra-telephoto zoom lens ideal for nature, wildlife, or sports photography. This lens is designed for full-frame cameras and is also compatible with APS-C format DSLRs. The zoom range translates into the approximate focal length equivalence of 225-750mm when used with APS-C cameras.

A Hyper Sonic Motor enables fast, smooth and quiet auto focus and its rear focus system prevents focus-dependent variation in aberration, provides quick, convenient manual focus and a non-rotating, non-extending front barrel during focus. Its APO apochromatic design with three Special Low Dispersion glass elements virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations and the DG-system and Super Multi-Layer coated optics reduce flare and ghosting.

The OS (Optical Stabilizer) system minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed 3-4 stops faster. This allows handheld telephoto zoom shooting even in poorly lit conditions.

For such a long telephoto zoom lens, this is a compact and lightweight option with an included rotating tripod collar. It also includes a dedicated lens hood and carrying case. It is compatible with the optional Sigma APO teleconverter.

Designed for use with full frame digital SLR cameras. May also be used with smaller APS-C size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length equivalence to about 225 to 750mm with most cameras.
The OS system uses two sensors inside the lens to detect vertical and horizontal movement of the camera. It works by moving an optical image stabilizing lens group, to effectively compensate for camera shake. It automatically detects movement of the camera and compensates for camera shake when shooting a moving subject such as motor sports.
The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) system ensures quiet and high-speed auto focusing with full time manual focus override.
Three Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements provide excellent correction for chromatic aberration.
The improved DG lens design corrects for various aberrations throughout the zoom range.
Super Multi Layer (SML) coating reduces ghost and flare.

question

can i adapt a wide angle lens to my sigma 150-500 ?
Asked by: Anonymous
To be honest, I don't know. I would not do it. This lens vignettes at the higher zoom levels. I cary 2 bodies and use the Canon 24-105 on the 2nd body to cover all the action. The focus is fast and accurate in low light as in high school night football games.

question

This lens works for Canon EOS 1200D ?
Asked by: Arun K.
Yes, this lens can work with the 1200D. Be aware that this lens is quite heavy.. The weight will create significantly more torque on the lens mount than the kit lenses. It is inadvisable to carry your camera with this lens attached to it without supporting the lens. Attaching the lens to a tripod, or monopod, is highly advisable.Also, because your camera is an APS-C body, your effective focal length will be 240-800mm. You will get best results with this lens when used in situations where there is plenty of light. The lens can be slow to focus if it is moved suddenly or very quickly from side to side. This is because the focusing and stabilization systems seem to get into a tug of war.

question

is it compatible with the Canon extender ef 2x II?
Asked by: John S.
Yes, don't forget 'it'll 1/2 f stop or shutter speed if that is a consideration, so make sure it's big enough for your application, you don't get 2x without 1/2 the light.

question

Will this lense work for canon sl1? Is there a differnce between EF mount and EOS?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, with the Canon EOS-M adapter, which also has a small extension effect so in effect it is greater than 150-500mm. The difference is a smaller flange and shorter distance between lens and photocell, but I use all my lenses on my other Canon cameras, in my opinion the adapter is way overpriced but what else can you due? Canon has you by the b****.

question

Is this a non-extending lens as specified since the pictures show a longer, extended close-up?
Asked by: Robert M.
The front of the lens extends 2.5 from 150 mm to 500 mm but the focusing does not change the overall length .I have this lens and am very happy with it and B&H . I use it with a Cannon 6D camera .

question

I plan to use this lens for mostly sports. Do you consider this the best lens for sports under 1000$?
Asked by: Anonymous
What sports are you going to shoot? I would use the Canon f-2.8 70-200 or a wide angle lens. THE 150-500IS TO HEAVY AND the refresh is slow. ( USE the Sigma for birding)
