The Sigma 150-600mm F/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports is a super-telephoto zoom lens for full-frame Nikon cameras. The Silver 'S' Badge and 'Sports' designation on this lens denote it as premium design in Sigma's Global Vision lens line. Sigma is committed to making the highest quality products possible and all Global Vision lenses are held to high standards. Even among Global Vision designs the 'Sports' line lenses are special, they're built to professional optical and mechanical standards while also optimized for the high performance needs of shooting sports and action photography. So don't mistake this lens for it's similar sounding sibling the very compelling 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary; while the Contemporary 150-600mm is somewhat lighter and more compact, this Sports model enjoys robuster construction and additional optical correction for more demanding or discerning photographers.
Designed with two FLD and three SLD elements, the Sigma 150-600 'S' produces extremely sharp images while expertly controlling aberrations and distortion commonly experienced in long glass. Chromatic aberration is controlled at the long end of the lens via the optimized design of these elements.
The two-mode optical stabilizer (OS) was designed to include an accelerometer for both horizontal and vertical panning in sports photography. Mode 1 for general photography while Mode 2 has been optimized for panning with motorsports, etc with high accuracy. Focusing is provided by high performance HSM (HyperSonic Motor) and autofocus can be overridden with a new manual override (MO) switch.
The entire lens is constructed to be dust and splash proof so it can be used in any weather. The tripod foot is interchangeable; the large standard foot has three tripod sockets for maximum flexibility and also serves as carry handle (the tripod collar has integral strap mounts too). The barrel has a zoom lock switch, allowing you to lock in a focal length.
As with all Sport line lenses from Sigma, the 150-600 works with the Sigma USB dock for maximum customization allowing for firmware updates and adjustments to the focus limiter, AF speed, and OS view.
