I briefly mentioned the new Sigma products few days ago - this was right around the time the new Nikon D750 camera was announced and I did not have the chance to publish additional details, especially on the new Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM lens that will come in two different versions (sports an contemporary).

The price

Update: here is the US pricing of this lens.

First, the price - B&H does not list any prices for the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM lenses on their website. I received some insider information that the lens will be priced at 2,099 EUR (around $2,700, US price will be lower):

Two different versions

Here is the difference between the two 150-600mm f/5-6.3 lenses according to Sigma:

The 150-600mm F/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports delivers enhanced, professional-grade optics and greater durability for challenging, high-action photographic situations. The 150-600mm F/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary is a versatile lens that offers similar performance in a more compact and portable design.

The 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports offers the highest level of performance and durability with a splash and dust proof construction, and features dimensions of 4.8 inches by 11.4 inches, with a weight of 100.9 ounces. It contains 24 lens elements in 16 groups – including two FLD and three SLD glass elements – with a minimum aperture of F/22 and minimum focusing distance of 102.4 inches. Its maximum magnification ratio is also 1:5. The Sports lens will be available in Sigma, Canon and Nikon mounts.

The 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary lens is the first hyper-telephoto zoom lens from the Global Vision Contemporary line, and will enable easy handling with a smaller build than its Sports counterpart. It is equipped with a splash and dust proof mount, and while the weight of the lens is still to be determined, its dimensions will be 4.1 inches by 10.2 inches. The lens will feature 20 elements in 14 groups – including one FLD and three SLD glass elements – with a minimum aperture of F/22 and minimum focusing distance of 110.2 inches. Its maximum magnification ratio is 1:5. It will be available in Sigma, Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts.
