150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM

Ultra telephoto zoom lens covering a telephoto range up to 500mm

APO - RF - OS - CONV - DG

Optical Stabiliser
This ultra-telephoto zoom lens covers a telephoto range up to 500mm and allows photographers to bring the subject close with short perspective. Sigma's original OS (Optical Stabilizer) function offers the equivalent of using a shutter speed approximately 4 stops faster. It is ideal for sports, wildlife and landscape photography with handheld shooting.

SLD Glass
Three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction for chromatic aberration. This lens is equipped with a rear focus system that minimises fluctuation of aberration caused by focusing. The super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting. High image quality is assured throughout the entire zoom range.

HSM
This lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), which ensures a quiet and high-speed AF as well as full-time manual focusing capability.

Compatible with Sigma APO Tele Converters
The addition of the (optional) 1.4x EX DG APO or 2x EX DG APO Tele Converters produce a 210-700mm F7-8.8 MF ultra-telephoto zoom lens or a 300-1000mm F10-12.6 MF ultra-telephoto zoom lens respectively. A removable tripod collar (TS-31) is included as a standard component.

Detachable tripod collar

A removable tripod collar and matched lens hood is included as a standard component.

Digital Photographer - Issue 72
'On a non full-frame digital SLR, it equates roughly to a 240-800mm zoom. This makes it a super-telephoto, which is potentially perfect for capturing the most distant objects like jets at an air show, or pitched based sports where the player are often a long way from the touchline or boundary. The autofocus is fast and smooth, and Sigma's HSM focusing system means that you also have full-time manual override...'
   
  Digital Camera Buyer - Issue 74
'As soon as you half-press the shutter release, the Sigma's OS cuts in and visibly steadies the image in the viewfinder. The Sigma felt good in use. It was tested during a trip to the zoo and in a variety of conditions, and its magnifying power meant that it was possible to get some great animal portraits despite the distance between the visitors and the animals. The focusing was spot-on and the shutter speeds were usually high enough to prevent camera shake, with or without the OS.'
   
  Ephotozine - September 2008
'The build and handling of this lens is a considerable leap up from its predecessor and bears a strong resemblance in its construction to the well liked 50-500mm EX model. In terms of features versus value for money, this lens has to be the telephoto bargain of the century to date. With both a sonic focusing system and an optical stabilisation system, the two of which work well, coupled with a good optical performance and reasonably compact dimensions, I can see this optic finding a lot of suitors. If you want the pulling power of a 500mm in a manageable package, this one should be at the head of your compare list!'
   
  Which Digital Camera - October 2008
'The Optical Stabiliser (OS) as it's known, utilises a system that has a floating element, which moves to counteract the camera's movement. There are two modes that you can choose between: for still subjects pick mode 1; for moving subjects select mode 2.' 'In fact this lens is remarkably good, with sharp detail being maintained right into the edges of the frame at mid-aperture settings. When you look at the value for money element with this lens, it does a good job for the price.'
   
  Photography Monthly - October 2008
'The lens' AF system uses Sigma's Hypersonic Motor (HSM). This gives quick and silent operation comparable to what you'd expect from a Canon USM or Nikon SWM lens. Not everyone needs a long zoom like this, but if you're into sports and nature, you could do far worse than this Sigma. Focus carefully and make sure your technique is good and you won't be disappointed.'
   
  Outdoor Photography - Christmas 2008
'The OS, Sigma's Optical Stabilisation seems just as effective as the Canon's, and I managed to get sharp shots at around 100sec handheld, amazing for a 500mm.' 'The optical quality is astounding in this price bracket. Wide open at f/6.3 very sharp images are possible right up to 500mm improving even further at f/9.' 'Sigma's APO design minimises colour aberration and fringing and three SLD glass elements and a rear focus system also help. These advances are responsible for the fine image quality, good contrast, little or no fringing and, in real world terms, images that 'pop'.' 'In focusing speed it is close to the Canon 100-400mm and beats the Nikon 80-400mm hands down. ...what I can say is that comparing the Sigma to my old Canon and Nikon left me feeling that both Canon and Nikon are well overdue on some serious work to refresh their nearest equivalent lenses!'
   
British Journal of Photography - 7th January 2009
'Closer inspection shows a high standard of assembly for the optics, lens mount, switches and inner element mounting barrels. My expectations for the optical performance of both zooms were high. I was not disappointed, nor surprised to find the 120-400mm turning in a result marginally improving the high marks obtained for one of the finest Nikon zooms ever produced. Installation of a nine-bladed diaphragm in each lens produces well rounded defocused backgrounds with a smooth transition from unsharp through sharp to unsharp planes.'
