A mirrorless makeover makes a master lens

£1,199/$1,499

We’re big fans of Sigma’s existing 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM lens, but since it has only been available for Canon, Nikon and Sigma DSLRs, mirrorless users have been out of luck... until now! The 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports is a refreshed version of the old DSLR lens; available in E-mount or L-mount options, it’s compatible with full-frame Sony, Panasonic, Leica and Sigma camera bodies. Like the exceptional DSLR version, this super-telephoto zoom is ideal for wildlife, sports, motorsports and other action photography.

The 150-600mm Sports inherits most of its signature features from its DSLR counterpart, though the optical path does differ slightly, with 25 elements arranged in 15 groups, including four FLD Elements and two SLD elements to reduce aberrations. Sigma’s Super Multi-Layer Coating is employed to reduce flare and ghosting, and a water and oil-repellent coating is applied to the front element to bead away rain droplets and minimise fingerprints. The lens also boasts optical stabilisation – essential for a lens with a focal length this long – giving an effective shutter speed reduction of four stops, ensuring rock-solid stability even at maximum zoom.

And while we haven’t yet tested those pricier Sony OLEDs, the XR-65A80J is far from being a second-class citizen. Read on to find out why.
