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

The Sigma 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports lens promises to be one of the most versatile lenses you can own, covering a huge focal length range and making it an appealing option for sports, bird, and wildlife photographers. With such an extreme focal length range, you might wonder if it can keep up with the performance and image quality demands of professional photographers. This great video review takes a look to answer that question.

Coming to you from PhotoRec TV, this fantastic video review takes a look at the 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports lens. With a price of $1,999, the 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 looks like a potentially nice value considering how many lenses it can replace. Beyond that, it comes with a nice array of features, including:

  • HLA (High-response Linear Actuator) focusing motor for quick and precise autofocus 
  • Improved Optical Stabilizer system with 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 fewer chromatic and spherical aberrations and distortion and improved sharpness
  • Super Multi-Layer Coating for fewer flares and reduced ghosting and deeper contrast
  • Water- and oil-resistant front coating
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh

Check out the video above for the full rundown.
