Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM |S
Best supertelephoto zoom
There have been a few desirable super-telephoto zooms launched recently, including Nikon’s own 200-500mm VR, Sigma’s 150600mm ‘Contemporary’ lens, and the brand new G2 edition of Tamron’s 150-600mm. They all offer serious telephoto reach while still being manageable, each weighing in at around 2kg. But in the end we’ve gone for something more heavyweight, in the shape of the almost 3kg Sigma 150-600mm Sport.
The Sigma Sport lens delivers the best image quality for this class of zoom, has the sturdiest build, and boasts a dazzling array of high-tech thrills. It’s still great value at the price, though, and is currently available with the latest edition of Sigma’s 1.4x converter. This boosts the maximum focal length to 840mm – effectively 1260mm on a DX camera!
BUY if… You require epic reach in a sensibly-priced lens that’s built to take a few knocks.
