In reality, there’s nothing unusual about extreme zoom lenses, both 8x and 10x zooms already exist, but none are like this.

Sigma 60–600mm f4.5–6.3 DG DN OS Zoom Lens

The Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG DN OS, as it’s called, is an impressive telezoom, made for full-frame mirrorless cameras from Panasonic, Leica and Sony.


  • Unique standard-to-super-telephoto coverage
  • Sturdy, all-weather construction
  • Sharp results on high-pixel cameras
  • Quick, quiet autofocus
  • 7-stop optical stabilization
  • Integrated Arca tripod foot


  • Heavy at 5.5 pounds
  • Teleconverters not available for E-mount

With a range of 60 to 600 mm, Sigma must have done something very special with the optical construction, otherwise it will have some optical challenges. The construction includes both Sigma’s HLA (High-response Linear Actuator) linear autofocus motor and image stabilization up to seven steps. Six steps when you zoom all the way to maximum tele.

Sigma program custom settings

The lens is weather-resistant and comes with a tripod mount. It also has the ability for custom settings that the user can program themselves.

The construction has 27 lens elements, including both FLD and SLD glass elements. Sigma states the close-focusing distance at the shortest focal lengths is 45 cm and a magnification factor of 1:2.4 at 200 mm focal length.

The L-Mount version for Panasonic and Leica can use Sigma’s USB docking UD-11 to set user functions on buttons and switches.
