The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the new SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary. The same focal ranges for different purposes. The first hyper-telephoto zoom lens from our Contemporary line for better usability.
On the one hand, the product concept of the SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports is to achieve the best optical and action-capture performance to meet the requirements of professional photographers. On the other hand, that of the SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary is to achieve a lightweight and compact construction for higher usability with similar specifications. It has put a special emphasis on its optical performance by incorporation of 1 FLD and 3 SLD glass elements, optimization of lens power distribution and minimized chromatic aberration of magnification. An issue for hyper-telephoto lenses in particular at the telephoto end, optical aberrations have been minimized throughout the zoom range. Dust- and splash-proof to facilitate photography in the field and featuring a detachable tripod socket for more convenient handheld photography, this lens is a lightweight high-performance model offering outstanding usability.
Dust-proof and splash-proof mount.
As with the SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM?Sports from the Sports line, the lens mount incorporates rubber sealing to protect the mount from dust and water drops.
Water and oil-repellent coating helps ensure performance in all conditions.
The foremost lens elements feature a water- and oil-repellent coating that allows water to be wiped away easily and prevents oil and fat from sticking to the surface, even in challenging shooting conditions. This coating also makes maintenance of the lens surface easier.
Zoom lock switch that can be set at any focal length.
The new zoom lock switch enables the zoom ring to be locked at any focal length. It can be fixed at the photographer’s desired focal length, which allows stable shooting even when the lens is positioned upward or downward. This feature is also useful during long-exposure photography.
TSC (Thermally Stable Composite)
Conventionally it is considered essential to leverage the qualities of metal and polycarbonate in camera and lens layout design. A first for the industry, the barrel of the new series of SIGMA lenses features a new TSC (Thermally Stable Composite)* that offers minimal thermal shrinkage combined with exceptional hardness. It also offers 25% greater elasticity than polycarbonate. Since its thermal shrinkage is low, TSC matches well with metal parts, further contributing to the high-precision construction of the lens.
*TSC (Thermally Stable Composite) offers thermal expansion characteristics similar to those of aluminum. Parts made with TSC deform less, making possible lens construction of extremely high precision. As compared to polycarbonate containing 20% glass, a commonly used material, TSC offers approximately 70% higher elasticity. As compared to polycarbonate containing 30% glass, it offers 25% higher elasticity. (Comparison is between SIGMA-produced components.)
Intelligent OS featuring updated algorithm.
The OS (Optical Stabilizer) function features an acceleration sensor to ensure even higher precision. Two OS modes are available: Mode 1 for general photography and Mode 2 for motor sports and other applications requiring panning. In Mode 2, the acceleration sensor teams up with the Intelligent OS and its updated stabilization algorithm to deliver effective stabilization while you move the camera horizontally, vertically, or diagonally—regardless of the position of the lens. This feature helps ensure effective panning and outstanding capture of moving subjects.
Note: This lens is incompatible with film SLR cameras with the exception of the Nikon F6 and Canon EOS-1V.
Two full-time manual modes available,
including manual override.
In addition to AF and MF, MO (Manual Override) is available as an option via the focus mode switch. When the switch is set in the MO position, the lens may be switched to manual focus simply by rotating the focus ring—even during continuous AF. In the AF position, standard full-time manual focus remains available. With the SIGMA USB DOCK (sold separately), you can easily customize the degree of twist sensitivity in MO mode.
Quieter and faster optimized AF
The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures high speed and quiet AF. Enhancing the drive algorithm applied in previous models, SIGMA has enhanced focus accuracy in autofocus continuous (AF-C) mode by 5 percent.
High-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount
The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.
