Sigma has at all times been a preferred firm for lengthy zoom lenses from the unique 50-500mm f/4-6.3 “Bigma” to the costly and comically massive 200-500mm f/2.8. However the brand new Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports activities collection lens has been hotly anticipated in Sigma’s present transition from DSLR lenses to mirrorless lenses.
The “DN” designation on the brand new lens denotes that it’s been designed particularly for mirrorless cameras. Now, a few of the specs for the brand new lens have leaked. And it seems that it will likely be suitable with the Sigma TC-1411 and TC-2011 teleconverters!
The leaked information comes, naturally, from Nokishita, who launched it through their common outlet, Twitter. There aren’t any images but – I count on these will come at any second – however listed below are the specs up to now.
|Optics||25 parts in 15 teams|
|Min Focus Distance||58cm @ 150mm, 2.8m @ 600mm|
|Angle of view||Unspecified|
|Dimensions||109.4 x 263.3mm|
|Weight||2,100g (together with tripod mount)|
To this point, the one advised lens mount could be Leica L given the teleconverter compatibility (and, you realize, Sigma making L mount cameras), though I count on it would additionally are available Sony E mount flavour. Whether or not or not we’ll get Nikon Z and Canon RF mount model… Effectively, if we do, it in all probability gained’t instantly, though it’s potential that it would occur ultimately. Sigma has stated that they need to launch Z and RF mount variations of their DN mirrorless lenses.
So far as the value, Nokishita says that it “is not going to exceed 200,000 yen together with tax” in Japan. That works out to round $1,800. For comparability, the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports activities for DSLRs is $1,999 within the USA (though it’s at present out there for $1,849). So, I believe we are able to count on the brand new DN mirrorless model to be about the identical.
Will you be grabbing one among these to your mirrorless digital camera after they’re introduced?
