Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary Lens with TC-1401 TeleConverter
- Lightweight and compact construction for higher usability
- Intelligent OS featuring an acceleration sensor
- FLD and SLD lens elements for superior image quality
- Dust-proof and splash-proof mount
- Comes with SIGMA TC-1401 1.4x teleconverter
The SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary has put a special emphasis on its optical performance by incorporating 1 FLD and 3 SLD glass elements, optimisation of lens power distribution and minimised chromatic aberration. The dust- and splash-proof construction facilitates photography in the field and the detachable tripod socket offers more convenience for handheld photography. By incorporating excellent optical glass elements, it minimises chromatic aberration and achieves class-leading image quality.
This lens incorporates 1 FLD ("F" Low Dispersion) glass element, which has a performance equal to fluorite, and 3 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements which improve overall sharpness and compensate for chromatic aberration. 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 the FLD lens. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides sharp and high-contrast images even in backlit conditions.
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. This lens is the optimal choice for photographers who desire hyper-telephoto functionality while staying light on their feet.
Intelligent OS featuring updated algorithm The OS (Optical Stabilizer) function features an acceleration sensor to ensure even higher precision. Two OS modes are available: Mode 1 for general photography and Mode 2 for motorsports 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. Zoom lock switch can be set at any focal length The new zoom lock switch enables the zoom ring to be locked at any marked 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 ensure a pleasant photography experience The forefront 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 a rubber sealing to protect the mount part from dust and water drops. Quieter and Faster "Optimized AF"
The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures high speed and quiet AF. With the further enhanced AF algorithm compared to previous models, continuous AF (AF-C) improves the focusing efficiency by approximately 5%.
The included Sigma TC-1401 is a high standard 1.4x teleconverter that is designed specifically for Sigma's Global Vision product lines. By mounting it in between a telephoto lens and a camera, the offered magnification of focal length is increased by 1.4 times. The Tele Converter incorporate SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements that offer excellent aberration correction. It is unusual for a lens accessory to use one of the best glass materials, yet this is because Sigma is seeking the best possible image quality, and it is necessary to meet the "SGV" standards.
The dust and splashproof construction ensure this teleconverter is suitable for professionals. It is compact and lightweight and provides an easy extension of focal range. The TC-1401 incorporates 1 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element. By minimising chromatic aberration effectively, it has achieved excellent optical performance, thus it is possible to maintain the optical quality of the original lens.
