Sigma 150-600mm Sport review - super-telephoto zoom!

Sigma 150-600mm Sport review - super-telephoto zoom! | Photography - Interesting Links | Scoop.it

The Sigma 150-600mm f5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sport is a super-telephoto zoom lens, available in Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts, and corrected for full-frame use. Announced in September 2014, it replaces the earlier 150-500mm f5-6.3, extending its reach while also offering higher performance and tougher build. It also now allows Sigma to compete on range with the existing Tamron 150-600mm f5-6.3.

 

Interestingly, Sigma is replacing the 150-500mm with not one, but two new lenses. Both share the same 150-600mm f5-6.3 specification, but have different levels of quality, construction and sealing. The higher-end Sport version reviewed here is fully weather-sealed, while the more affordable Contemporary version, yet to be released, employs a simpler optical construction and sealing at the mount to hit a lower price point. While the full specification and price of the Contemporary model were not known at the time of writing, the dual-offering remains a cunning approach by Sigma, allowing the cheaper version to compete with Tamron and the pricier one to go up against premium options from Canon and Nikon. Sigma appends the model names with an S for Sport or a C for Contemporary, so officially speaking I'm reviewing the 150-600mm f5-6.3 DG OS HSM | S.

Like the 150-500mm before it, the 150-600mm range is ideal for wildlife and sports photography, tight sunsets, or even distant street work. Despite Sigma's previous success with this range it's also one that's not been covered by Canon and Nikon, making it unique to third parties. And while the Sport version is a premium lens, Sigma's still managed to price it a little below the most recent Canon 100-400mm and Nikkor 80-400mm options, missing out on their slightly wider coverage, but crucially reaching 50% longer. Read on to find out if this is the best super-telephoto zoom for your DSLR or mirrorless camera!

The Challenge of Photography

The Challenge of Photography | Photography - Interesting Links | Scoop.it
Photography does not lend itself to defamiliarization easily, thus making it the unlikeliest of all art forms. As it happens, the challenge plays out on both sides of the process, for photographers and viewers.

In Search of a Vocabulary for Image Quality

In Search of a Vocabulary for Image Quality | Photography - Interesting Links | Scoop.it

A week back, David Dyer-Bennet had an interesting comment on Mike's column, "Do You Really Need Full Frame?" It's worth looking up; in part it read:

We really need to find some way to demonstrate in controlled conditions ...using "pictorial" subjects (not test charts) ... The "tonality differences" that some people see in medium-format vs. 35mm, or today in full-frame vs. Micro 4/3 or whatever.

This relates to a problem I've been wrestling with for several years. How can we describe image quality more fully?
