Versatile Reach: A Review of the Sigma 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Lens

Though they simply cannot offer the same level of image quality of less extreme lenses, superzoom lenses can often give you quite good image quality with the added convenience of a very wide range of focal lengths all in one device. This great video review takes a look at one such lens, the Sigma 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this excellent video review takes a look at the Sigma 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports lens. I have always been intrigued by this particular lens. Most full frame superzoom lenses are normally somewhere around 28-300mm, but one that starts around a normal focal length and continues out to such an extreme zoom level is an entirely different beast and one that could be a great find for people like wildlife photographers, who might want to be able to switch between a fairly close scene to something very far away both easily and as quickly as possible. Sports photographers are another group who come to mind for such a lens. It is certainly one of the more unique optics out there; check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts.

I've been using a sigma 60-600 since March. It's far and away my favorite lens. While I use it mostly at the 600mm end for birding, I almost always have a situation where I want to use the 60mm end, and something in between. In particular at 200mm it has a very short minimum focus distance resulting in x0.4 magnification factor.
