- Additional Information
Characterized by its massive zoom range, the Sigma 60-600mm f/4.5-6.4 DG OS HSM Sports Lens is a versatile piece of glass that is designed for shooting a wide range of subjects. It offers up to 10x zoom—a first of its kind for hyper-telephoto zoom lenses with a maximum focal length of 600mm—and is part of Sigma’s line of high-quality Sports lenses from its Global Vision series. With three “f” low dispersion (FLD) and one special low dispersion (SLD) glass elements, chromatic aberrations are controlled and correct magnification is ensured each time to give you accurate, high-resolution images at any focal length. The integrated Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) provides fast and discreet autofocus performance while the Intelligent OS system that suppresses camera shake by up to four stops for blur-free photos even at the longest zoom.
Since this lens is specifically made for sports photography, it is designed to withstand the most challenging outdoor shooting conditions. Armed with a zoom lock switch, a front lens coating for protection against water and oil, and a lightweight yet robust body that is tightly sealed to keep dust and moisture at bay, this lens is the perfect companion for serious professional sports shooters.
The world's first 10x optical zoom telephoto lens with a tele end of 600mm Covering from 60mm to 600mm, the 10x hyper-telephoto zoom lens achieves the same level of high image quality as the SIGMA 150.600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports. With the lens construction of 25 elements in 19 groups, consistent image quality can be created throughout the entire zoom range. This lens also incorporates Intelligent OS adopting the latest algorithm to deliver an image stabilization effect of 4 stops. The high-speed AF, thanks to the HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) with an updated algorithm, captures instantaneous photography movement. High ratio, high image quality, and high mobility - The SIGMA 60.600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM - Sports marks the birth of a lens that is on another level from existing high ratio zoom lenses.
High optical quality meeting the most stringent needs of professional photographers
This lens incorporates three FLD ("F" Low Dispersion) glass elements and one SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element to provide excellent correction of magnification chromatic aberration encountered in hyper-telephoto shooting. This offers both high resolution and consistent edge to edge performance through the entire zoom range. In addition, when shooting at the focal length of 200mm, the SIGMA 60 600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM - Sports can also be used for telephoto macro photography, with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.3, thanks to its high rendering performance.
Incorporating multi-material to achieve both portability and durability
To achieve comfortable handling required for a 10x zoom lens while maintaining high optical quality, the SIGMA 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM - Sports incorporates multi-material, such as magnesium, CFRP, and TSC. The use of these superior materials in the right place reduces the weight of the overall lens to enhance portability and ensure durability.
Design that ensures photographers capture every desired moment
The zooming mechanism has been engineered to make both smooth rotation and straight zoom possible. In addition, as a lens from the Sports line, the dust- and splash-proof structure ensures safe use even in the most challenging shooting conditions. Together with the water- and oil-repellent coating on the front lens, this lens surely meets the exact requirements of professional photographers.
