Sigma launches 150-600mm F5-6.3 lens for mirrorless
Sigma has announced the 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Sport lens, a mirrorless equivalent to the company's existing 150-600mm lens for Canon, Nikon and Sigma, and a lens that Sigma says has been developed from the ground up specifically for full-frame mirrorless cameras. The lens will be available in Sony E-Mount and Leica L Mount.
The new lens is 760g and 26.6mm shorter than it's DSLR compatible equivalent, and boasts 25 elements in 15 groups. Nine aperture blades will offer 'pleasing defocus and bokeh', and the lens has a minimum focusing distance of 58cm at the wide end and 280cm at the telephoto end.
The new lens has a dust and splash-resistant build as well as a water and oil repellant coating applied to the front element. The lens features a Sigma's Dual Action Zoom, which allows users to change the angle of view with either the traditional ring or by pulling the front of the lens forward. There's also three customisable switches, and the lens is compatible with the Sigma USB Dock.
In addition, the 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Sport lens boasts optical stabilisation for an effective four shutter stops of shake compensation. All in, the lens weighs 2,100g (including the tripod socket with removable foot) and measuring 109.4mm x 263.6mm.
The Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports lens is expected to go on sale globally on 27 August.
No local pricing or availability for that matter has been announced yet, but you can keep an eye on the website of local Sigma distributor C.R Kennedy for more info, or if you're really keen, watch the 40 minute launch video below.
