One of the big announcements out of Photokina this year was the Sigma 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Sports lens. Somewhat surprisingly though, Sigma is hailing this new lens as the flagship of its Sportsline, which admittedly only includes one other lens (the 120-300mm F/2.8).

The following video does a great job of highlighting and overviewing the lens for those who are interested in it, and those curious to see why it has such a hefty pricetag.

As a sports and wildlife shooter, this lens is so interesting to me. I am just curious to see how it does optically, compared to similar lenses like the Tamron 150-600mm. The “pro” features of the lens are very tempting, from the weather sealing, to the more advanced optical design. I can’t wait to get my hands on one.
