Digital Camera World Verdict

The Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports is hard to beat. It’s superbly well-engineered, weather-sealed, has a wealth of features and delivers excellent image quality. If you're an E-mount or L-mount user and are after a super-telephoto lens for sports or wildlife photography, this is an excellent choice. It offers a flexible focal range, pro-spec features, high build quality, and all at a very fair price.

We're big fans of Sigma's existing Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM |S lens, but since it has only been available for Canon, Nikon and Sigma DSLRs, mirrorless users have been out of luck... until now!

The Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports is a refreshed version of the old DSLR lens, available in E-mount or L-mount options, making it compatible with full-frame Sony, Panasonic, Leica and Sigma camera bodies.
