A Review of the Highly Affordable Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Lens

Traditionally, decent image quality from a supertelephoto focal length costs a pretty penny, which is what makes the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM, which costs less than $1,000, a particularly intriguing lens for many creatives. Can it offer performance and image quality that punch above that budget price, though? This excellent video review takes an in-depth look at what you can expect from the lens. 

Coming to you from Will Goodlet, this great video review takes a look at the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM lens. Despite its sub-$1,000 price, the 150-600mm f/5-6.3 comes with a range of useful features that should appeal to bird, wildlife, sports photographers, and more. These include 20 elements in 14 groups with one FLD element and three SLD elements, a Hyper Sonic autofocus motor, a zoom lock, manual override switch, and a splash- and dust-proof mount. It also includes optical stabilization, a particularly nice thing to have with such long focal lengths. Lastly, it features a rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh, removable and rotating tripod collar, and a Thermally Stable Composite for use in a variety of conditions. Check out the video above for Goodlet's full thoughts on the lens.
