Sigma posted two videos showing the weather resistance of the new Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports. The Contemporary version is sealed around the mount only.

Splash proof

Dust proof

    An IP (Ingress Protection) rating would be far more useful than a shower video.

    Sports version confirmed to work with USB Dock. Contemporary unkown. Need optical benchmarking of both before opening wallet. Sigma marketing needs to eliminate confusion, not add to it.

      The 150-600mm C is compatible with the USB Dock.
      Working with the Sigma USB dock, this lens allows for maximum customization such as firmware updates and adjustments to the focus limiter, AF speed and OS view.

        Thank you for the clarification.

        Now to await some real-world testing…

  • Gareth

    Is that the same level of weather sealing as on the older 120-300 Sports?

    2 choices of 150-600
    I would assume there is some quality difference betwwen the two ..and that currently only the lower quality one comes in Sony A mount…that presents the question if we want the better one in Sony will the mount conversion service be availanle? Or will the better one be made for A mount eventually?
