I never experienced it on a lens with slow apertures like f/5 and f/6.3, and it could be that not every sample is affected. For example, The Digital Picture tested the zoom and stated that this particular issue didn’t occur on their sample. The Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports is a versatile 4x super-telephoto zoom lens for Sony full-frame and APS-C mirrorless cameras. It offers an effective focal range of 225-900mm when used on an APS-C sensor camera. But with it mounted, you'll at least increase your chances of shielding the front of the lens from the sun in the first place. A dust and splash resistant structure that stops water drops or dust from getting into the lens, combined with a

The focusing ring is much narrower, making it a little more difficult to locate in a rush, but it is well damped. There's no distance scale and no depth of field scale on this lens. The lens is priced at 1399 EUR / 1499 USD / 1199 GBP and so far only available for Sony E-mount and Leica L-mount. But I’m pretty sure Sigma is working on Z- and RF-mount versions of their lenses too. I got a perfect score at 1/60s, both at 150mm and 600mm, so the Sigma seems to be 1 stop more efficient than the Sony lens overall. As you'd expect in a lens of this price and class, the Sigma 150-600mm is comprehensively sealed to keep out dust and moisture. With individual seals and gaskets at the lens mount, the seams between sections and every individual switch, button or ring, you should be able to shoot in inclement weather with a degree of confidence.The lens has a Focus Limiter switch offering three-zone AF modification, which helps to speed up AF performance. The The opportunity to do zoomed in landscape photos has not arisen in the month and a half since I acquired the Sigma. But I often photograph mountains and mountain details with longer zooms. My Canon 100-400 is actually my favorite landscape lens, as it is great at what you mentioned - zooming into mountain peaks to catch details. I have no doubt the Sigma 60-600 will be even better for mountain scenes, because it is wider at the short end and longer at the long end. I appreciate you sharing your experiences with your Sigma super telephoto too! Your example photos are great and in line with what I experienced. The rutting elk in the water photo is really something. I bet that was great to witness in person. I just saw elk rutting in Colorado but they were just in a field bugling, and not fighting like yours.

The SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Sports offers outstanding optical performance throughout its zoom range and at all apertures, yielding professional quality results. We also noted some issues with specular highlights. The good news is that the nine-bladed, rounded aperture diaphragm yield nice, round out-of-focus highlights even when stopped down to F8 (though this is to be expected, since F8 isn't stopped down much from wide open, especially on the long end).

We didn't experience much "hunting", either in good or bad light, with the lens accurately focusing almost all of the time. It's also a very quiet performer, thanks to the built-in stepping motor, which makes this lens well-suited to video recording. MPB puts photo and video kit into more hands, more sustainably. Every month, visual storytellers sell more than 20,000 cameras and lenses to MPB. Choose used and get affordable access to kit that doesn’t cost the earth. With 35mm-equivalent focal lengths equating to 225-900mm with an APS-C crop, it's aimed primarily at still photographers looking to bring distant subjects up close, and will be of particular interest to wildlife and sports shooters. IQ wise, I've been happy with all. Wasn't thrilled by the Sigma 150-600 and 100-400 on the MC-11, but it's probably improved in the last few years.
