- Additional Information
The Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports is the world’s first 10x optical zoom telephoto lens with a tele end of 600mm. Incorporating 25 elements in 19 groups, excellent and consistent image quality can be achieved throughout the entire zoom range. This lens’ intelligent OS featuring the latest algorithm delivers an image stabilization effect of 4 stops. Its optical design ensures maximum correction of magnification chromatic aberration encountered in hyper-telephoto shooting. This offers both high resolution and consistent edge-to-edge performance throughout 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.
Its multi-material build, which incorporates magnesium among other components, ensures durability and enhances portability, allowing for comfortable handling of the 10x zoom lens. The zooming mechanism has been engineered to make both smooth rotation and straight zoom possible. Versatile and robust, the new Sigma hyper-telephoto zoom lens is available in Sigma, Canon and Nikon mounts.
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*3, and TSC*4 . The use of these superior materials in the right place reduces the weight of the overall lens to enhance portability and ensure durability.
*3 Carbon fiber reinforced plastic, a light but strong material used in the interior and exterior fittings of aircraft, among many other applications.
*4 Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) offers thermal expansion characteristics similar to those of aluminum. Since parts made with TSC expand and contract less due to changes in temperature, they tend to perform better under extreme conditions and help maintain the performance of the lens. TSC also offers outstanding elasticity. Compared to polycarbonate containing 20% glass, TSC offers approximately 70% higher elasticity. Compared to polycarbonate containing 30% glass, it offers 25% higher elasticity. (Comparison is between SIGMA-produced components.)
water- and oil-repellent coating
Forefront and rear 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 construction
This lens features a highly effective dust- and splash-proof 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.
This lens incorporates Intelligent OS*1 adopting the latest algorithm to deliver an image stabilization effect of 4 stops*2.

Based on CIPA guidelines (Measured in 600mm with a 35mm full-size image sensor)
The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures high speed and quiet AF.
Tripod socket with high usability
With 90° click stops
Replaceable lens foot
Compatible with Arca Swiss tpe clamps
Tele Converters that are designed to match the current lens lineup (optional) can be attached.
* The addition of SIGMA's TELE CONVERTER TC-1401 or TELE CONVERTER TC-2001 produces an AF 84-840mm F6.3-9 hyper-telephoto zoom lens or a MF 120-1200mm F9-13 hyper-telephoto zoom lens respectively.* When it is attached to cameras that are compatible with AF at F8, focus accuracy is not ensured on the telephoto side at the focal length scale more than 300mm.
By connecting the lens to a computer with the SIGMA USB DOCK, photographers can update the lens firmware and adjust the following settings. Exclusive SIGMA Optimization Pro software makes customization easy.
1. Updating Lens Firmware
2. Focus Setting
3. Full-time MF Setting
4. AF Speed Adjustment
5. Focus Limiter Adjustment
