This ultra-telephoto zoom lens covers a telephoto range up to 500mm and allows photographers to bring the subject close and short perspective. Sigma's original OS (Optical Stabilizer) function offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower. It is ideal for sports, wildlife and landscape photography with handheld shooting. Three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction for chromatic aberration. This lens is equipped with a rear focus system that minimizes 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. This lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), which ensures a quiet and high-speed AF as well asfull-time manual focusing capability.

The addition of the (optional) 1.4x EX DG APO or 2x EX DG APO Tele Converters produce a 210-700mm F7-9 MF ultra-telephoto zoom lens or a 300-1000mm F10-13 MF ultra-telephoto zoom lens respectively. A removable tripod socket (TS-31) is included as a standard component.

The Sigma 150-500mm is commonly used for Wildlife photos and more.One reason why the Sigma 150-500mm is popular is because of its Consistent output

Fun but concerned

I am an armature, but I know what I want. I received this lens a week ago and the first thing I notice was the box was big and heavy. This leans is a beast, but a fun beast. However I am concerned with the fit in the mount. I have a D80 and this lens has some play in the mount. When I change the direction of the zoom, the lens pivots in the mount, I guess about 3 cm.

When I called Sigma, I was told there would be some play, but this is slop. So I tried this lens on my step-dad's D40 and it was a significantly tighter fit. Sure it moved a smidgen in the mount, but not metal hitting together like it does in my D80. One other thing: The auto focus is fast enough, but my lens was having some problems when there were objects closer to me even when the object weren't directly in the viewfinder. I had to switch to manual, because sometimes it wouldn't focus.

Beautiful -- but HEAVY

By

from N.Georgia USA  -  Photo Enthusiast

First of all let me state that they have a sort of decieving picture of this lens that makes it look sort of smaller than it is in real life -- READ the SPECS!!! It arrived and the box size right away made me face facts that this was not a smaller lightweight Tele Lens. It weighs 5 lbs! And it is 12 inches long without the hood. That being said --- I purchased a chest assisted mono pod, and fell in love! I the motor is smooth,,,it is quiet, and it is rather fast to focus at least for me. I'm a hummingbird fanatic and capturing those little sweeties, is not always easy! But this lens does the job that I was hoping for! And, for the price you get a lot for the money! The lens hood, a mounting strap to help any accidents, and a beautiful carry case that NEEDS to be used if you do not have it on your camera!

Good Lens At A Good Price

By

from Montana  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The Sigma 150-500 is a very good lens for the most part. It's at its best focusing within 100ft/30m. Very sharp images within that range and the stabilization works very well too. It's not as good at extreme distances or in poor light. It has a zoom lock to prevent lens creep when carrying the lens on a camera.

Very Pleased

By

from Arizona  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Nature shots, AF works well, like the O/S and the construction of the lens seems very well made. A learning curve and getting used to the weight of a larger lens. Overall, very pleased and the price fits my budget.

Pleasant Surprise

By

from Show Low, AZ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

As a photographer who specializes in Nature shots, I was nervous and cautious about purchasing this lens and after my first photo run, I think I will like it. It will take a little learning curve and getting used to the extra weight but the auto focus worked very well. I look forward to giving this lens a heavy workout soon. Hand held is possible and a heavy duty tripod is also a good backup for using this lens.

Great Value

By

from Central, WI, USA  -  Pro Photographer

I have used this lens for both nature and portraits. It is a great value in that it is very sharp even at f/7.1 @ 500mm. Small birds, like an American Redstart have very good feather detail at 30 feet from the camera. The hair of a chipmunk is also well defined. Both of those subjects were shot hand held with the OS turned on. The bokeh is ok and the zoom ring is a bit on the stiff side. Otherwise, I would give the lens 5 stars.

Excellent lens!

By

from Anaheim, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I got this lens since I didn't have anything in this length. I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality and ease of use. I used the lens to get the red moon eclipse the other night. I used a tripod but also took a few hand-held shots which came out sharp. I had to turn off the auto-focus at the height of the eclipse (when the moon was very dark) as the lens kept hunting and not finding the right focus. All in all, a great lens!

Excellent Value

By

from Houston  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is a big lens, both physically and in value. I own two now, and both are well-made and equally sharp at all focal lengths. If the cost, size, and weight of the big pro telephotos are out if the question, this Sigma lens is an amazing alternative. So far I have been impressed with overall image quality, and the extra 200mm of zoom over the Nikon 70-300 I was using previously is a big difference. The image stabilization has worked perfectly so far. Combined with the weight of the lens, handheld shots have been easy and sharp.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  how much larger is the image in a 150-500mm vs a 70-300 lens?
HOWARD B  You may want to view Exif info on flickr dot com then try to discern if this meets your criteria. Unfortunately I don't have access to 70-300 lens. But I am quite pleased with the 150-500mm for the cost.
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
MARCUS V  Less expensive than Nikon's version, but does the trick. A bit clunky and noisy (not pics, but the motor), but good for what I bought it for which is sports.
Ed K  WILL THIS LENS FIT A Nikon D60 Camera?
DALE T  I use this lens on my D80 I'm sure it will work on your D60.
