For anyone looking for a super-telephoto zoom lens, the Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Contemporary and Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VXD are both affordable and offer impressive performance. This great video review compares the two to help you pick the right one for your work.
Coming to you from Stefan Malloch compares the Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Contemporary lens to the Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VXD lens. Super-telephoto zoom lenses are tremendously versatile and useful in a wide range of genres, including more traditional applications like sports and wildlife and on to things like landscape photography, where they offer a different perspective to expand one's creative palette. And thanks to the autofocus and high-ISO capabilities of modern camera bodies, the narrower apertures of such lenses as compared to much more expensive supertelephoto primes is not as much of a hindrance as in past years, and you get the added benefits of a zoom. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Malloch.
