Testing Sigma’s Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6,3 DG OS HSM C lens at the Slovakia Ring
As you have probably seen trough my previous blog entry, we started a collaboration with Sigma Photo Hungary.
This occasion is now the 2nd, where they supported me with one of their demo lenses, this time with a Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6,3 DG OS HSM C.
This being a telephoto lens, I had to try it on the race track, and this is where the invitation from my friends at Vehicle Experts came handy, as they’ve organized their first Track Event on Slovakia Ring. This made everything perfect for a nice little testing of this lens.
Not because of our collaboration neither because I’m grateful for Sigma Photo Hungary, but I have to say I’m truly astonished by the capabilities of this lens. First and most importantly it’s focal coverage is extraordinary and 600mm even on a full frame body (like my Canon 6D) is amazing. You can sit in a chair and shoot everything around without the need to walk anywhere 🙂 Than this being the “C” version which means “Contemporary” is basically the “cheaper” version, and basically considering it’s price it’s a really good buy overall. Even the focus, I guess the S (Sport) version is even quicker but was relatively fast, usually it was rather my fault that I did not manage to get the speeding cars on time.
After coming back home I was really surprised seeing how great the images turned out, and with a little bit of after-care I’ve got amazing images from the track, from people and details without having bothered anyone.
Last but not least I must warn anyone who intend to buy it, it’s pretty heavy so you better start to go to work out first 🙂
