Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG S lens on 5D Mark III

Pros:

  • very solid, weather-sealed casing
  • excellent image quality in the frame centre across the whole range of apertures and focal lengths
  • good performance on edge of APS-C/DX sensor
  • completely acceptable resolution on edge of full frame
  • low longitudinal chromatic aberration
  • lack of problems with lateral chromatic aberration in the 100 – 600 mm range
  • no reservations concerning spherical aberration correction
  • moderate distortion
  • good coma correction
  • imperceptible astigmatism
  • low vignetting on APS-C/DX sensor
  • blurry areas pleasing to the eye
  • efficient image stabilization
  • fast, efficient and silent autofocus

Conclusion from Lenstip “As a result we got a lens physically smaller and lighter than the Sigma S 150-600 mm, sharper, and with a wider focal range too! The tested Sigma S 60-600 mm is worse than the whole armada of 150-600 or 200-500 mm lenses when it comes to vignetting, distortion, and chromatic aberration but only at the 60 mm focal length...”
