Review: Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG HSM Contemporary lens

The Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG HSM is my second Contemporary lens. Except for belonging to the same lens series as the 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM which I also have, they hardly have anything in common. It is large and heavy like every other full frame compatible telephoto lens with an extremely long focal ...

More bird photos and a couple of macro shots (150-600mm C)

With over 20 degrees on Monday, to me, it didn’t feel like winter at all. I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to take some great bird shots, so I took my SD1 Merrill and the 150-600mm C on a photo session. After hours of making use of the heavy equipment, my hair and my undershirt ...


Shooting with Sigma 150-600 C + SD1M: a few insights after four photowalks

Another photo walk with the 150-600mm C

Today I went for another photo walk with the Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary and the SD1 Merrill camera. In comparison to last time, the weather was sunny and nice this time, so I didn’t have to increase the sensitivity range to ISO400 in order to achieve a sufficiently short shutter speed. Despite the long focal length ...


Fitness studio? No need, the Sigma 150-600mm C is here ;)

For a few days now I’ve been the owner of a Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Contemporary Tele Zoom. The timing for this purchase isn’t quite ideal, as taking photos with such lenses requires a lot of light. Actually I didn’t want to buy it before spring, but then I had a G.A.S. attack. A bad one ...
