Questions on Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens for Nikon - 2 Year Sigma Australia Warranty
- Question From Robin at 29/03/2015 3:54 PM
- What is the difference between this (contemporary) and the sport model?
- Hi Robin, Below is an explanation on the specs of the Sports and Contemporary versions of the Sigma 150-600.
The 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports is designed to offer a higher level of optical precision and contains 24 elements in 16 groups, with two FLD and three SLD elements to control aberrations and distortions. It has a minimum aperture of f/22, minimum focusing distance of 8.5', and maximum magnification ratio of 1:5. The lens measures 4.8 x 11.4", and weighs 6.3 lb. Sigma is targeting photographers who place the utmost value on performance over weight, along with refined handling capabilities. The lens will be available in Canon EF, Nikon F, and Sigma SA mounts.
For photographers looking for a more portable option, while still retaining the versatile telephoto-zoom reach, Sigma offers the 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary. This Contemporary version contains 20 elements in 14 groups, with one FLD element and three SLD elements. It has a minimum aperture of f/22, minimum focus distance of 9.2', and maximum magnification ratio of 1:5 and shaves some dimensions off the Sports version to measure 4.1 x 10.2". Sigma has not determined the final weight yet, but it is safe to say it will be lighter than the Sports version, thanks to it is smaller dimensions and fewer optical elements. It, too, will be available in Canon EF, Nikon F, Sigma SA, and Sony A mounts.
