Sigma 100-400mm f/5-f/6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Canon Fit Lens Summary

Sigma 100-400mm f/5-f/6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Canon EF Mount Lens in Detail

An ultra-telephoto lens with an optical stabilizer (OS) system has several advantages.

The OS allows the photographer to take photographs in unstable circumstances. The narrow angle of view makes it possible to dramatically compress perspective and flexible handling of the background.

The photographer can thereby make the subject appear to jump out of the image, with the area in focus impressively sharp and clear. Nevertheless, ultra-telephoto lenses have traditionally had some disadvantages as well.

With the goal of creating an ultra-telephoto lens that is far more accessible, Sigma incorporated all of its latest technologies into this lens.

With its outstanding combination of optical performance and compactness, this is an ultra-telephoto lens that is a joy to carry and use. While keeping the robust functionality and exceptional image quality of an ultra-telephoto zoom lens intact, Sigma has achieved amazingly compact packaging enclosing 400mm optics. 

It offers the compact size, lightweight, and high cost performance of a 70-300mm lens while delivering 400mm telephoto performance.

This approach results in a tempting new ultra-telephoto choice for photographers. Offering a combination of stunning image quality and outstanding functionality, this lens satisfies the needs of pros and amateurs alike.

Top performance with the specification and functionality of a more expensive unit

Since its release, the Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM - Contemporary has won photographers over with its strong fundamental performance and exceptional image quality. The new lens retains all of this performance in a compact 400mm ultra-telephoto zoom package with a filter size of just 67mm and weight of just 1,160g.

Yet it also comes with the full range of features and functions expected of an ultra-telephoto zoom: optical stabilizer (OS), hypersonic motor (HSM) with updated algorithm for fast autofocus, focus limiter, and more. In addition, this uncompromising specification becomes customizable with the available Sigma USB Dock accessory.

Compact packaging with uncompromising image quality

In designing this lens, Sigma strived to push both compactness and image quality to the limit. Four SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass lens elements and an optimized power distribution help minimize optical aberrations.

Moreover, by taking special care to minimize transverse chromatic aberration, which cannot be corrected via aperture control, Sigma has ensured outstanding image quality throughout the zoom range. 

Push/pull zoom mechanism incorporated 

For quick control of the angle of view, the zoom ring incorporates a push/pull mechanism in addition to the regular twist mechanism. The exclusive lens hood has also been designed to accommodate push/pull zooming and overall lens maneuverability. By making it possible to adjust the angle of view instantly, this lens gives photographers an even better chance of getting that crucial shot.

Telephoto plus macro functionality

With a minimum shooting distance of 160cm and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8, this lens can shoot either from a distance or up close.

Dust- and splash-proof mount

Since the area of the lens most vulnerable to dust and other foreign bodies is the mount, rubber sealing helps provide peace of mind.

All-new optical stabilizer (OS) unit with exclusive algorithm

Featuring a newly developed gyroscopic sensor and a new and exclusive algorithm, the all-new OS unit provides a powerful stabilization effect. An acceleration sensor detects camera shake in any direction horizontal, vertical, or diagonal. This technology allows the OS to stabilize the image very effectively, regardless of whether the camera is being held in horizontal or vertical orientation.

Our Verdict

Joining the Contemporary family of Sigma lenses, this compact 100-400mm lens utilises optical image stabilisation to assist in long-range photography - with its obvious applications of sports or wildlife photography being perfect beneficiaries of this technology.

For a lens of this focal range it is relatively compact and means you can add a whole new range of photography styles to your bag without needing anything too bulky or cumbersome.

Sigma's claim is that this lens offers high cost performance at a lower cost, and the optical and physical design of the lens certainly doesn't defer from that mantra - with a host of special low dispersion lenses to get impressive images combining with a dust and splash proof mount to prevent 'foreign bodies'.
