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 large 200-500mm f/2.8. However the brand new Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports activities sequence 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, among the specs for the brand new lens have leaked. And it seems that it is going to be suitable with the Sigma TC-1411 and TC-2011 teleconverters!
The leaked information comes, naturally, from Nokishita, who launched it by way of their regular outlet, Twitter. There aren’t any images but – I count on these will come at any second – however listed here are the specs to date.
|Optics||25 components 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 instructed lens mount could be Leica L given the teleconverter compatibility (and, you realize, Sigma making L mount cameras), though I count on it’ll additionally are available in Sony E mount flavour. Whether or not or not we’ll get Nikon Z and Canon RF mount model… Nicely, if we do, it most likely received’t immediately, though it’s potential that it’d occur ultimately. Sigma has mentioned that they want to release Z and RF mount versions of their DN mirrorless lenses.
So far as the worth, 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 for DSLRs is $1,999 within the USA (though it’s at the moment obtainable for $1,849). So, I believe we will count on the brand new DN mirrorless model to be about the identical.
Will you be grabbing considered one of these on your mirrorless digicam once they’re introduced?
