Sigma 150-600mm Sport Lens First Impressions Roundup

The first impressions of Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sport Lens have been posted on several review sites. And the testers on Sigma 150-600mm are all enthusiastic so far.

Sigma announced two new 150-600mm F/5-6.3 DG OS HSM telephoto zoom lenses along with the Sigma 18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM lens. Available for Canon EF, Nikon F (FX), Sigma SA Bayonet mount, the sports version is dust and splash-proof (only the mount is sealed on the ‘C’ version). And the 150-600mm F/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports delivers enhanced, professional-grade optics and greater durability for challenging, high-action photographic situations.

Here is a sum up of what is said about Sigma 150-600mm Sport Lens.

Usability and build quality

  • With an all-metal casing, the 150-600mm Sports feels very well built.
  • Zoom creep does occur, especially with the heavy hood on − the lock switch is essential.
  • Zoom and focus rings have a sturdy feel to them.
  • As expected, the lens is unwieldy.
  • The base of the tripod collar is adequately long and can be easily used as a handle when needed.

Image quality

  • Images are very sharp at both ends of the range, and exhibit a nice clarity.
  • The bokeh is very pleasing.
  • Some amount of vignetting is present over the zoom range (somewhat stronger at 600mm).
  • Chromatic aberrations and flare are very well controlled, which probably contributes to the aforementioned clarity.


  • Quick and silent. No inaccuracies have been reported so far.
  • The lens teams up well with the follow-focus mode (AI-Servo) of the Canon EOS-1D X. Fast-moving subjects are tracked without problems.
