History

    The absolute all-rounder.
    Effortlessly covering from standard
    to hyper-telephoto.

    The world’s first 10× optical zoom telephoto lens with
    a tele end of 600mm* 1

    Covering from 60mm to 600mm, the 10× 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*2. 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.

    *1 Among interchangeable lenses for digital SLRs as of September, 2018
    *2 Based on CIPA guidelines (Measured in 600mm with a 35mm full-size image sensor)

    Embodying the concept of our Sports line of lenses,
    this lens responds directly to photographers' needs with outstanding action-capture performance.

    In addition to the highest levels of optical performance and photographic expression, SIGMA’s new Sports line of lenses offers the kind of action-capture performance that precisely executes the intentions of the photographer. Uncompromising optical performance and photographic expression allow the photographer to shoot fast-moving and distant subjects, while exceptional functionality makes possible excellent shots even in the most challenging of situations. Fully customizable, it allows the photographer to create his or own specification. It is an ideal choice for photographing many different subjects; birds, wild animals, airplanes, motorsports, and even portraits. And SIGMA’s exclusive software makes the lens extremely easy to customize.

    Features

    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

    • CFRP
    • TSC
    • Magnesium alloy barrel

    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 (Thermally Stable Composite). The use of these superior materials in the right place reduces the weight of the overall lens to enhance portability and ensure durability.


    * Carbon fiber reinforced plastic, a light but strong material used in the interior and exterior fittings of aircraft, among many other applications.

    water- and oil-repellent coating

    The front lens element incorporates 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.

    Intelligent OS

    This lens incorporates Intelligent OS adopting the latest algorithm to deliver an image stabilization effect of 4 stops.

    Tele Converters

    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.

    Manual override (MO)

    Manual override (MO) capable of switching two full-time manual modes

    * By setting it to the MO position, it switches to manual focus by rotating the focus ring even during continuous AF. Using the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, it is possible to adjust the MO position’s sensitivity to switch to manual focus.

    Customization

    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.

    SIGMA 600mm
    hyper-telephoto zoom lens lineup
    accommodates diverse
    shooting styles

    The arrival of the 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports expands the lineup of SIGMA’s 600mm zooms to three lenses. The SIGMA 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports is “versatile”, focusing on high image quality and mobility, demonstrating superior coverage from a standard focal length to a hyper-telephoto range without switching to another lens. The 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports is composed of many metal parts aiming at a “robust” structure. The lineup of these two Sports line lenses that can meet the most stringent needs of professionals, together with the Contemporary line’s “lightweight” 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary, which reduces weight and makes the shooting experience even more comfortable and convenient, SIGMA undoubtedly satisfies the diverse shooting styles of photographers.

    Ease-of-use specifications

    Instead of conventional ABS plastic, the exclusive lens hood features CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic), a light but strong material used in the interior and exterior fittings of aircraft, among many other applications. The Arca-Swiss tripod socket is compatible with Arca-Swiss platforms and clamps.

    Exclusive lens hood featuring CFRP

    Tripod Socket

    Designed to minimize flare and ghosting

    From an early stage in the lens design process, flare and ghosting have been measured to establish an optical design resistant to strong incident light sources such as backlighting. SIGMA’s Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting to help photographers produce sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions.

    High-precision,
    rugged brass bayonet mount

    The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.

    Nikon electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism included

    The Nikon mount version of this lens includes an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism that allows it to receive the appropriate signals from the camera body. This feature ensures precision diaphragm control and stable Auto Exposure (AE) performance during continuous shooting.

    Rounded diaphragm

    The 9-blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur in the out-of-focus areas of the image.

    Compatible with Canon Lens Aberration Correction

    The Canon mount version of this lens is compatible with the Canon Lens Aberration Correction function*. Matching the optical characteristics of the lens, this function performs in-camera corrections of peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations, distortion, and more, to further enhance image quality.

    * Function not available on all Canon cameras. Available corrections may vary depending on the Canon camera model.

    WR CERAMIC PROTECTOR 105mm

    With many applications in aerospace and other industries, glass ceramic is an extremely tough type of crystallized glass that serves as the foundation for Clear Glass Ceramic. While featuring the high transmittance required of optical devices, this advanced new material combines greater hardness than chemically strengthened glass and greater flexibility than sapphire crystal glass. These qualities make Clear Glass Ceramic the ideal material for protective lens filters.
