Created around the concept of maximum portability meeting utmost image quality, the Sigma 150-600mm 5-6.3 DG HSM OS Contemporary is a variable aperture hyper-telephoto zoom lens. Light weight and compact, this zoom lens can handle any long-reach photographic situation one may encounter. It boasts updated Sigma technology such as a quiet and optimized Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) and a Optical Stabilizer (OS) with an accelerometer for improved panning photography both vertically and horizontally, essential for birding, wildlife and motor photography, and also touts a zoom lock switch that can be locked at any focal length. Also featured is a manual override (MO) switch for improved focusing control, and the ability to use the Sigma USB dock for maximum customization such as firmware updates and adjustments to the focus limiter, AF speed and OS view.
The SIGMA DG Lens Series are high-performance SLR lenses that offer full-frame sensor coverage designed to deliver the ultimate in performance on full-frame digital SLRs, Sigma DG lenses also bring out the best in 35mm SLR film cameras and APS-C size DSLRs. Remarkable image rendition is achieved by comprehensive correction of aberrations and distortions. Special care is taken to thoroughly minimize colour fringing caused by lateral chromatic aberration, which is particularly noticeable at high resolution in digital photography. DG lenses can offer both high contrast and subtle tonal gradations, unmarred by flare and ghosting, thanks to Sigma's digitally optimized optical design and original Super Multi-Layer Coating technology, which suppress reflections between image sensor and lens surfaces. Large image circles assure ample peripheral bright- ness to prevent vignetting.
The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures a silent, high-speed AF function. By optimizing the AF algorithm, smoother AF is achieved. Also, this lens offers full-time MF by rotating the focus ring of the lens while auto focusing. Without changing the AF/MF Focus Mode Switch, it allows faster focus adjustment.
