Reviews of the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports from around the web. »

The Sigma 150-600mm f5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sport is a super-telephoto zoom lens, available in Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts, and corrected for full-frame use. Announced in September 2014, it replaces the earlier 150-500mm f5-6.3, extending its reach while also offering higher performance and tougher build. It also now allows Sigma to compete on range with the existing Tamron 150-600mm f5-6.3.

My need for telephoto started at age fourteen when I would stalk tigers in the jungles of India with a Nikon FE and a 300mm Nikkor with a roll of 36 exposures Kodachrome 64 in the camera and if lucky, another roll in my pocket. All Manual Focus, no Image Stabilization, no LCD to check ‘playback’, no post processing to sharpen, adjust Chroma or contrast. No luxury of shooting in a burst mode, always being afraid of finishing the roll of film prematurely. Leopard with a cub on the tree feeding on a gazelle? Get exposure, focus, framing and press the shutter only when the moment seemed perfect as later cropping or even horizon straightening would be difficult.
