Specs leak for upcoming Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Sports series lens

Tips & Techniques

Sigma has always been a popular company for long zoom lenses from the original 50-500mm f/4-6.3 “Bigma” to the expensive and comically large 200-500mm f/2.8. But the new Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports series lens has been hotly anticipated in Sigma’s current transition from DSLR lenses to mirrorless lenses.

The “DN” designation on the new lens denotes that it’s been designed specifically for mirrorless cameras. Now, some of the specs for the new lens have leaked. And it appears that it will be compatible with the Sigma TC-1411 and TC-2011 teleconverters!

The leaked info comes, naturally, from Nokishita, who released it via their usual outlet, Twitter. There are no photos yet – I expect those will come at any moment – but here are the specs so far.

Focal Length 150-600mm
Mount L Mount
Format Full Frame
Focus Type Autofocus
Optics 25 elements in 15 groups
Min Focus Distance 58cm @ 150mm, 2.8m @ 600mm
Max aperture f/5-6.3
Min Aperture Unspecified
Angle of view Unspecified
Aperture Blades 9
Stabilisation Yes
Filter Size 95mm
Dimensions 109.4 x 263.3mm
Weight 2,100g (including tripod mount)

So far, the only suggested lens mount would be Leica L given the teleconverter compatibility (and, you know, Sigma making L mount cameras), although I expect it will also come in Sony E mount flavour. Whether or not we’ll get Nikon Z and Canon RF mount version… Well, if we do, it probably won’t right away, although it’s possible that it might happen eventually. Sigma has said that they want to release Z and RF mount versions of their DN mirrorless lenses.

As far as the price, Nokishita says that it “will not exceed 200,000 yen including tax” in Japan. That works out to around $1,800. For comparison, the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports for DSLRs is $1,999 in the USA (although it’s currently available for $1,849). So, I think we can expect the new DN mirrorless version to be about the same.

Will you be grabbing one of these for your mirrorless camera when they’re announced?
