Portable, durable and of a high-standard. A masterpiece of hyper-telephoto zoom lens
Dust and splash-proof, zoom lock at every focus distance, water-repellent coating, compatibility with the new tele converters, new OS system with accelerometer, easily accessible manual over-ride switch, optimised auto focusing, telephoto shooting at 600mm, minimised chromatic aberration for higher optical performance and enhanced enjoyment with beautiful build quality. Since telephoto zoom lenses are often used under very challenging situations, this model has harnessed all the possible qualities and features to achieve the best optical and action-capture performance. While combining high portability and durability, this high-performance hyper-telephoto zoom lens from SIGMA's Sports line offers outstanding rendering capabilities. Its versatility provides better flexibility for wider shooting scenes, and the high-performance definitely stimulates photographers' artistic expression.
By incorporating excellent optical glass elements, it minimises chromatic aberration and achieves class leading image quality
This lens incorporates 2 FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite, and 3 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements, and compensates for colour aberration at the utmost. Chromatic aberration in particular, which could be visible especially towards the telephoto-end even when stopped down, is corrected by the optimised design of glass elements including FLD lenses.
Dust-proof and splash-proof construction
The SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | S is dust and splash-proof, and designed for higher durability. It is able to meet the demands that professional photographers would require in challenging shooting conditions.
Zoom lock switch 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 desirable focal length, which allows stable shooting whether the lens is positioned upward or downward. It also helps during long exposure photography.
Water and oil-repellent coating
Forefront and rear lenses incorporate a water and oil-repellent coating that allows water to be wiped away easily and prevents oil from sticking to the surface, even in challenging shooting conditions.
Manual override incorporated to make two full-time manual modes switchable
In addition to AF/MF, MO (Manual Override) is incorporated as one of the options of the focus mode switch. By setting it to the MO position, it switches to manual focus by rotating the focus ring even during continuous AF.

We have been a fan of Shaun Mills’ photography for some time now, having started following him on Twitter a while back, so we were very excited when he tagged us having hired the Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sport lens to go with his Canon EOS 5D IV!Read full article
If extremely precise autofocus is required, the Sigma calibration dock will fine-tune the relationship between the specific camera and the specific Sigma lens you are using. For ultra precision, you may also want to hire the Datacolor SpyderLENSCAL calibration chart.
The Sigma 150-600mm f5-6.3 is not fully compatible with mirrorless Canon cameras as it does not support eye tracking and AI servo. The lens would need to be used in 'One Shot AF' to avoid continuous autofocus problems.
