Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Lens Review
From The-Digital-Picture review:
The Sigma 150-600mm OS Sports Lens’ eye-catching focal length range is complemented by a beautiful design, solid build quality and overall excellent functionality. Though rather large and heavy and though not inexpensive, the opportunities this lens gives the photographer definitely help justify the downsides.
This is a big and heavy lens. It can be handheld, but it is most comfortably used with support.
Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Lens sets the bar high for build quality, performance and for range of features among the 150-600mm lenses available at review time. With optical performance just a bit shy of the most elite zoom lenses, and with an incredible range of very long focal lengths available, sports and especially wildlife photographers along with many others will find this lens to be a very useful tool in their kits. This lens can bring home imagery that many others cannot.
