Feeding off the popularity of the 150-600mm lens, Sigma now offers the lens with their TC-1401 1.4x teleconverter in a money-saving kit.
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.
