The Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | C lens is an excellent choice for Alaskan Photo safaris, reports Sigma Pro Robert O’Toole.
The Sigma 100-400mm C is the newest super telephoto zoom lens in the Sigma lineup. With a 4X zoom ratio, this lens is designed for full-frame cameras and offers a lot of reach in a very compact and lightweight package thanks to the variable aperture design. In total specs, features, build, and focal range, it is most closely related to the slightly larger 150-600mm Contemporary lens, and it ships at a slightly lower cost. We are going to do a run through of the shared features and points of differentiation between these two great supertelephoto zoom lenses.

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?
The Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 zoom lens offers great versatatility and reach in a compact package, perfect for on-the-go wildlife and birding phtoography.
