Defined by its extensive zoom range, the Sigma 60–600mm f/4.5–6.3 DG OS HSM Sports for Canon is a hyper-telephoto zoom lens that also covers standard zoom length. As a part of Sigma’s Sports Lens Line, it is a versatile, high-caliber lens designed for catching a wide variety of images, especially those on the move, without needing to change lenses.
Autofocus is extremely fast, owing to Sigma’s Hyper Sonic Motor and Intelligent OS, plus the focus algorithm, which reduces camera shake up to four stops. The zoom mechanism has been crafted to guarantee a straight and smooth zoom throughout the range, and a convenient zoom lock makes it easy to keep the perfect focus once you’ve found it. These components work together, instantaneously, ensuring that you’ll never miss the moment. Two full-time manual focus override modes are also available, as well as a focus limiter.
Whatever you capture will be high-ratio, high-mobility, and high-quality. With a nine-blade, f/4.5–6.3 maximum aperture, you’ll be able to dial in your blur and bokeh while working in many lighting conditions. You can also use this lens for macro telephoto photography when shooting at the 200mm focal length — it provides a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.3.
The lens is constructed from 25 elements divided into 19 groups. One Special Low Dispersion element and three F Low Dispersion elements correct the enhanced chromatic aberrations that often plague hyper-telephoto shooting. It eliminates flare and ghosting, even in the brightest conditions, so you’ll get incredible clarity and color fidelity — from edge to edge.
Since this lens is built for sports, it’s rugged and manufactured to withstand the most unforgiving conditions. Made from a composite of magnesium, CFRP, and TSC, it also has a relatively light footprint. It features a brass bayonet mount, a tripod socket with 90 click stops, a replaceable lens foot, and a CFRP hood. A water- and dust-proof design is improved further by the water- and oil-repellent coating on the front. Even when the weather challenges your skills, it won’t challenge this lens.
The Sigma 60–600mm f/4.5–6.3 DG OS HSM Sports for Canon has a 39.6º to 4.1º angle of view and a minimum focusing distance of 23.6 to 102.4 inches. It’s compatible with 105mm filters, Arca Swiss type clamps, and Sigma’s USB Dock, which allows you to set lens characteristics and update the firmware.
