Product Description

Introducing the Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM - Sports: The Ultimate 10x Zoom Lens

The World’s First Full-Frame 10x Zoom with a 600mm Reach

Unparalleled Versatility and Performance

The Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports lens is designed for photographers who demand the utmost in versatility and performance. As the world’s first 10x zoom lens for full-frame DSLRs, it offers an impressive focal range that is perfect for capturing fast action in sports, wildlife, and aviation. This ultra-telephoto zoom lens delivers outstanding image quality across the entire zoom range, even at the widest apertures, providing photographers with a unique combination of exceptional optical performance and a vast focal range.

Hand-Held Shooting and Stabilization

For photographers who prefer shooting hand-held, the Sigma 60-600mm features an intelligent two-mode Optical Stabilizer (OS) that offers approximately four stops of stabilization. This advanced feature makes it possible to shoot in lower light conditions without compromising image sharpness. Professional-grade features include a focus limiter, lockable zoom ring, two custom buttons, an AF/MF switch with manual focus override, a dust- and splash-resistant structure, a built-in rotating tripod collar, and a lockable lens hood.

This lens is highly versatile and perfect for sports, wildlife, motorsport, and aviation photography. It can also capture macro-style images thanks to its impressive magnification ratio of 1:3.3, making it one of the most versatile fast-action DSLR lenses on the market.

Outstanding Build Quality

The exterior barrel of the Sigma 60-600mm is constructed from three different materials: magnesium alloy, Thermally Stable Composite (TSC), and Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP). These materials are carefully chosen to maximize durability and strength while minimizing weight. All three materials have a sleek finish for a premium look and feel. The lens hood is made from CFRP, which is very strong and light, with a rubber grip at the end for easy fitting and removal.

The zoom and focus rings are rubberized for easier operation, and the zoom ring can be locked at various positions using the Lock switch. The lens sits in the Sports line-up, designed to withstand the rigours of heavy professional use. This includes a dust- and splash-resistant structure with special sealing at the mount connection, manual focus ring, zoom ring, and cover connection, allowing photographers to work in all types of weather.

At the rear of the lens is a tripod collar and foot for better balance when mounted on a tripod. The collar can be rotated to easily switch between portrait and landscape orientation. The foot has an Arca-Swiss dovetail notch, allowing it to mount on an Arca-Swiss compatible tripod without needing a tripod plate. The durable brass mount is surrounded by a rubber seal to help keep out dust and moisture.

Professional Feature-Set

The Sigma 60-600mm offers a range of professional controls, including an AF/MF switch with manual focus override, allowing manual focus adjustment during AF, and a Custom Mode switch to customize lens setup using the USB Dock (sold separately). The Focus Limiter allows for faster and more accurate operation by reducing the focusing range, particularly useful when objects in the frame might distract the lens.

The Dual Action Zoom feature allows photographers to zoom with the zoom ring for accuracy or by pushing or pulling the end of the lens for speed. This push-pull functionality is particularly useful for tracking fast-moving subjects. The 4-stop Optical Stabilizer has a mode for general shooting and one for panning, ideal for fast-moving birds and vehicles.

The lens also features a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) for fast, accurate, and quiet focusing, essential for wildlife photography. With razor-sharp in-focus areas and fast, accurate AF, this lens ensures highly professional results.

High-Performance Optics

The Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports delivers exceptional optical quality with excellent detail rendering right into the corners at all focal lengths. Its advanced optical design includes 25 elements in 19 groups, featuring 1 SLD element and 3 FLD elements to ensure razor-sharp results while eliminating chromatic aberration, flare, distortion, and vignetting.

Advanced optical coatings reduce flare and ghosting when working in bright sunlight, creating high-contrast images with rich colours and deep blacks. The long reach of the 60-600mm makes it perfect for isolating small vignettes within a landscape.

Versatility Meets Performance

With its extensive focal range, weather-sealing, and exceptional optical performance, the Sigma 60-600mm is a highly versatile lens suitable for various types of photography, including landscapes and portraits. While it is relatively heavy at 2.7kg, its versatility often negates the need to carry a second lens.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
