Sigma unleashes 60-600mm supertelephoto superzoom monster

Sigma 60-600mm lens

Sigma has added a new lens to its Sports range of high-performance lenses with a phenomenal 60-600mm range at Photokina 2018– offering a focal length that will keep wildlife, aviation and sports photographers happy, whilst letting them shoot more normal wider scenes without changing optics.

The Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM is built as the absolute all-rounder – but yet, as explained by Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki, it does not compromise on optical quality. The 10x zoom is essentially an update of the old Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 which was recently discontinued.
