The Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary versus the 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports

The Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary lens has a removable tripod collar. When the collar is removed, there is a rubberized ring that slides into place to cover the mounting bolts for a better hand-held experience. Sigma is rethinking lenses. From the innovative zoom lock at all marked focal distances, to lens customization for AF speed, custom focus limiter and more, the 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary is a fantastic hyper-tele zoom lens designed with an eye on portability and performance.

Last year, Sigma announced a pair of zoom lenses for full-frame cameras, the 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports and 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary. With identical focal lengths and apertures, and advanced feature sets including the Sigma-exclusive lens customization, these two new champion zoom lenses share a significant amount of DNA. So, what is the difference between the Sports and Contemporary version of the Sigma 150-600mm zoom lenses?

critical in helping us capture some amazing shots.
