Hi All,

Sigma have announced their answer to the Tamron 150-600mm. They will be releasing two new versions of their 150-600mm lens.
The first is the Contemporary version which has a smaller front element, has fewer ED elements and is not completely weather sealed.

The second version which should be a winner for birders is called the Sigma 150-600mm Sport and is obviously built for those needing a fast solid weather sealed lens!

Not sure of pricing on these lenses yet but this should make for a truly special birding lens!

Cheers,
Gordon

Here is a video of the Sport version of the lens being subjected to simulated rain showers:

Again, pair this lens with a weather sealed body and you have a very nice set of birding tools!!

Cheers,
Gordon
