    About The Sigma 150-600mm + 1.4x Converter – Canon EF

    A lightweight hyper-telephoto zoom lens featuring high usability and outstanding optical performance

    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, optimisation of lens power distribution and minimised chromatic aberration of magnification. An issue for hyper-telephoto lenses in particular at the telephoto end, optical aberrations have been minimised 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.

    High image quality and a compact construction based on the product concept of our Contemporary line

    By incorporating excellent optical glass elements, it minimises chromatic aberration and achieves class leading image qualityThis lens incorporates 1 FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite, and 3 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements, and compensates for color 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.

    * FLD glass is the highest level low dispersion glass available with extremely high light transmission. This optical glass has a performance equal to fluorite glass which has a low refractive index and low dispersion compared to current optical glass. It also benefits from high anomalous dispersion. These characteristics give excellent correction for residual chromatic aberration (secondary spectrum) which cannot be corrected by ordinary optical glass and ensures high definition and high contrast images.

    Lightweight and compact construction for higher usability

    Compared to the SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports, it is more compact and lightweight, enabling easy handling and making it possible to do handheld photography for a longer period of time. The tripod socket is detachable so that the lens can be carried by itself. Without the tripod socket, it also fits well into limited space for storage. Moreover, the tripod socket is made of magnesium which is light and strong at the same time. The tripod socket may be detached and replaced with a rubber protective cover PT-11 to further reduce weight and make handheld photography an even more lightweight and convenient experience. This lens is the optimal choice for photographers who desire hyper-telephoto functionality while staying light on their feet.

    2. Enhanced functionality for better portability and usability

    Intelligent OS featuring updated algorithmThe OS (Optical Stabiliser) 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 stabilisation algorithm to deliver effective stabilisation 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.

    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 ensures pleasant photography experience

    Forefront and rear lenses incorporate 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. At the same time, the maintenance of the lens surface becomes easier.

    Dust-proof and splash-proof mount

    As with the SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM from the Sports line, the lens mount incorporates rubber sealing to protect the mount part from dust and water drops.

    Quiet and Fast AF

    The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures high speed and quiet AF as well as full-time manual focus override by rotation of the focus ring. With the enhanced AF algorithm, smoother AF is achieved. The full time manual, which offers further adjustment after focusing with AF mode, is possible. By using USB Dock, you can change and adjust the AF speed at your convenience.

    Customisation and flexible adjustment for convenience or a specific purpose is possible

    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. With AF position, standard full-time manual focus is available. Using the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, it is possible to adjust the MO position’s sensitivity to switch to manual focus.

    Compatible with the newly developed tele converters

    AF is effective up to F8

    Tele Converters that are newly designed to match the new lens line-ups (optional, planned to be released in 2014) can be attached. The addition of SIGMA’s TELE CONVERTER TC-1401 or TELE CONVERTER TC-2001 produces a MF 210-840mm F7-9 hyper-telephoto zoom lens or a MF 300-1200mm F10-12.6 hyper-telephoto zoom lens respectively. In addition, when SIGMA TELE CONVERTER TC-1401 is attached to cameras that are compatible with AF at F8, it is possible to shoot with AF.

    * When shooting subjects with low contrast or luminosity value, focus may not be spot on the subject

    New product lines from SGV concepts are setting new benchmarks for image quality

    Sports

    Sophisticated optical performance and expressiveness. High action-capture performance, enabling photographers to get the exact shots they want

    SIGMA is organising all its interchangeable lenses into three product lines; Contemporary, Art, and Sports. While offering sophisticated optical performance and expressiveness, our Sports line lenses deliver high action-capture performance, enabling photographers to get the exact shots they want. With these lenses, fast-moving subjects even at distance can be well captured. This high-performance line also offers a variety of functions to aid the photographer in challenging conditions and scenarios. Besides sports photography, these lenses are also perfect for nature shots featuring birds and wildlife, as well as aero photography, trains, motor sports photography and portraits. Another major feature of our Sports line lenses is their wide range of customisation options: using the dedicated software, all sorts of settings can be tailored to the personal preferences of the photographer.

    Sigma Global Vision

    SIGMA is working on its full renewal of the products, and the new lens lines share all the following elements.

    Evaluation with Sigma’s own MTF measuring system “A1”

    We used to measure lens performance with an MTF measuring system using conventional sensors. However, we’ve now developed our own proprietary MTF (modulation transfer function) measuring system (A1) using 46-megapixel Foveon direct image sensors. Even previously undetectable high-frequency details are now within the scope of our quality control inspections. The SIGMA 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM will all be checked using this “A1” before they are shipped.
