    In text 60-260cm is minimum focus distance (at different focus lengths).

  • Yes, I read and understood that later. Thats why I deleted the text.

  • Sigma today announced five new Sigma Global Vision lenses shown for the first time at the 2018 Photokina expo in Cologne, Germany from September 26th-29th in Hall 4.2 on Stands B020, B028I and C029. From wide-angle to hyper-telephoto, the new Sigma Global Vision introductions arrive as some of the most anticipated lenses in the industry, further facilitating artistic expression for photographers

    The Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports is the world’s first 10x optical zoom telephoto lens with a tele end of 600mm. Incorporating 25 elements in 19 groups, excellent and consistent image quality can be achieved throughout the entire zoom range. This lens’ intelligent OS featuring the latest algorithm delivers an image stabilization effect of 4 stops. Its optical design ensures maximum correction of magnification chromatic aberration encountered in hyper-telephoto shooting. This offers both high resolution and consistent edge-to-edge performance throughout the entire zoom range. In addition, when shooting at the focal length of 200mm, the Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports can also be used for telephoto macro photography, with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.3, thanks to its high rendering performance. Its multi-material build, which incorporates magnesium among other components, ensures durability and enhances portability, allowing for comfortable handling of the 10x zoom lens. The zooming mechanism has been engineered to make both smooth rotation and straight zoom possible. Versatile and robust, the new Sigma hyper-telephoto zoom lens is available in Sigma, Canon and Nikon mounts starting in late October 2018 for $1999 USD.

    Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports is available today for $1999 USD in Sigma, Canon and Nikon camera mounts

    Ronkonkoma, NY -- November 1, 2018 -- The world's first 10x optical zoom telephoto lens with a tele end of 600mm, Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports, is now available through the authorized Sigma dealer network. Making its debut at Photokina 2018, this absolute all-rounder is a great one-lens solution for nature & wildlife, sports & action, and creative photography.

    Optical Design to Meet the Most Stringent Needs of Professional Photographers

    Incorporating 25 elements in 19 groups, including three FLD ("F" Low Dispersion) and one SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements, this lens boasts maximum correction of magnification chromatic aberration encountered in hyper-telephoto shooting, offering both high resolution and consistent edge-to-edge performance throughout the entire zoom range. Its intelligent OS featuring the latest algorithm delivers an image stabilization effect of four stops. In addition, when shooting at the focal length of 200mm, the Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports can also be used for telephoto macro photography, with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.3, thanks to its high rendering performance.

    Multi-Material Build for Portability and Durability

    Thanks to the new state-of-the-art facility located at the Sigma Aizu factory in Fukushima, Japan, which is now fully operational and solely dedicated to the processing of magnesium alloy, this lens incorporates magnesium, a useful component that provides toughness and durability while being lightweight. Together with CFRP and TSC materials, magnesium in lens construction dramatically reduces weight, ensures durability and enhances portability, allowing for comfortable handling of the 10x zoom lens. Use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic, a light but strong material used in the interior and exterior fittings of aircrafts, enhances overall build of the lens. TSC (Thermally Stable Composite) offers thermal expansion characteristics similar to those of aluminum. Since parts made with TSC expand and contract less due to changes in temperature, they tend to perform better under extreme weather conditions and help maintain the performance of the lens. TSC also offers outstanding elasticity: compared to polycarbonate containing 20% glass, TSC offers approximately 70% higher elasticity; compared to polycarbonate containing 30% glass, it offers 25% higher elasticity.

    Smart Zooming Mechanism Ensures Photographers Never Miss the Perfect Shot

    The zooming mechanism has been engineered to make both smooth rotation and straight zoom possible. In addition, the dust- and splash-proof structure, a classic attribute of the Sigma Global Vision Sports line, ensures safe use even in the most challenging shooting conditions. Together with the water- and oil-repellent coating on the front element, this lens is a reliable and indispensable tool in any professional photographer's kit.

    Accommodating Diverse Shooting Styles

    Versatile and robust, the Sigma 60-600 F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports is the perfect companion for someone going on a safari trip and needing an all-in-one lens to capture wildlife up close and from afar, as well as someone eager to take crisp, sharp images of an action-packed sports game without unwanted blurs or shakes. This lens is a true all-rounder that won't disappoint photographers on the most challenging photo assignments.
