DPR: Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Sport

DPR just posted its Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Sports review which you can read here or you can see the summary of their findings below:


What we like What we don’t
  • Not as bulky as you might expect
  • Optional push-pull zoom is great
  • Plenty of physical controls
  • Comprehensively weather-sealed, impressively solid build quality
  • Four-stop optical image stabilization
  • Very sharp even when wide-open
  • Nice flat focal plane
  • Bokeh is well-rounded even at F8
  • Chromatic aberrations well-controlled
  • Decent close-up capabilities
  • Competitively priced
  • Autofocus performance lags rivals
  • Rather soft corners at telephoto
  • Bokeh sometimes feels overly busy
  • Significant cat’s eye and soap bubble effects at telephoto, too
  • Quite prone to flare
  • Large filter size adds to cost
  • No USB dock for E-mount (yet)
  • No teleconverters for E-mount either
