A few weeks ago, I got a Sigma 150-600 Sports. Unfortunately, circumstances kept me from giving this lens the test run I wanted. Well, today, I got to mount it on my 7DmkII.
First off; the Sigma 150-600 is a beast of a lens. It’s heavy. And unless you’re used to curling 20lb dumbbells on a daily basis, you will need to use a monopod when using it it to photograph birds or anything else you will be walking around to do. If you’re going to be standing in one spot, you will need a tripod.
Onto image quality. Wow… just wow.
The lens is very quick to focus, and the images are sharp, without any distortion, even when shooting multiple subjects.
This Sigma is a great piece of glass. I wouldn’t use it every day, but for specific birding or sporting events, it’s a winner.
