Review: Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 OS Contemporary

Dustin has completed his review of the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 OS Contemporary. In his review he compares this lens against Tamron’s own 150-600mm lens.

As others have said, this lens is great value at around $1000 USD and should be on your list of budget friendly supertelephoto zoom lenses.

Sigma’s more affordable ultra-telephoto lens strikes a lot of the right chords.  The Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM C is a handsome lens that is relatively light and hand-holdable while offering great optical performance.  It gives up little to its competition (save perhaps in the autofocus department), while bettering them in some ways in the image quality.  I wasn’t crazy about the manual focus ring, but I also recognize that this is rarely going to be a priority for users of this lens.  While not built or weather sealed to the exacting standard set by the Sport edition, it retains a lot of its handsome looks and even most of its ability to be customized.  It comes with a number of well executed accessories like a nice case, carrying strap, and rubber ring to “finish” the lens with the tripod foot removed.  This is, frankly, a lot of lens for the money, and is a solid pick for those of you looking for an affordable way to get major reach.  Nicely done, Sigma!
