Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sport

Lens review for the latest of the Sigma super telephoto zooms, a sports model that reaches 600mm and delivers exceptional image quality. Don’t let the f/6.3 specification fool you, this lens is sweet to the edges and delivers fast and confident autofocus to make chasing wildlife a pleasure.
