The elusive Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Sports lens is raising questions, but we must remember that Sigma released a statement to warn about supply issues to be expected because of the high demand.

More recently, Sigma debunked the rumor of a manufacturing defect affecting the Nikon version, and drove the point home on their Facebook page, in a reply to a user.

Q: So is this shipping in F mount or still ‘having quality issues’ and not yet to market?

A: There is a ton of misinformation on rumor sites. The truth of the matter is that worldwide demand for Sigma lenses has skyrocketed in recent years due to the quality, performance and pricing offered, and demand for both Canon and Nikon 150-600mm Sports lenses is incredibly high and the factory is working hard to keep up with incoming orders for all the new lenses.

They also confirmed that some Nikon-mount units had shipped from US retailers.

Update: According to PCH, Sigma expects to start delivering higher quantities in February or March.
