A Review of the New Sigma 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports Lens

Sigma's new 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports lens is potentially one of the most versatile lenses on the market right now, covering a massive focal length range that should be appealing to bird, sports, and wildlife photographers. Can it still offer the kind of image quality and performance we have come to expect from Sigma despite that extreme design? This excellent video review takes a look at everything you can expect from the lens. 

Coming to you from Stefan Malloch, this great video review takes a look at the 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports lens. At a price of $1,999, the 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 has the potential to replace two or three lenses, making it an excellent value proposition. It comes with a range of impressive features, including:

  • HLA (High-response Linear Actuator) focusing motor for quick and precise autofocus suitable for demanding action
  • Improved Optical Stabilizer system offering up of 7 stops of compensation at the wide end and 6 stops at the telephoto end
  • Three Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements and two F Low Dispersion (FLD) elements for reduced chromatic, spherical aberrations, and distortion and better sharpness
  • Super Multi-Layer Coating for fewer flares and ghosting and increased contrast
  • Water- and oil-resistant front coating
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • Dual-action zoom
  • Tripod collar

Check out the video above for Malloch's full thoughts on the lens.
