RONKONKOMA, NY — February 19, 2016 Sigma Corporation of America, a leading DSLR lens, camera, flash and accessory manufacturer, today announced two new Global Vision Lens bundles: the 150-600mm F5-6.3 Sports Lens and TC-1401 1.4X Teleconverter bundle and the 150-600mm F5-6.3 Telephoto Contemporary Lens and TC-1401 1.4X Teleconverter bundle. Expanding the focal range from 150-600mm to 210-840mm F6.3-9, the new bundles offer Canon, Nikon and Sigma camera users more choices, configurations and shooting options when investing in Sigma.

“These bundles are ideal for photographers – both professional and enthusiast – who continually seek out longer ranges and want more options for their shooting style,” states Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of Sigma Corporation of America. “Sigma’s high-performance telephoto offerings cover the range of photographic scenarios from professional sports to nature and more. Combined with the Sigma 1.4X Teleconverter, customers have even more options with the same great performance they have come to expect from Sigma.”

Sigma bundled products can also be purchased individually, giving customers four distinct 150-600mm F5-6.3 product choices to meet their photographic needs.

The 150-600mm F5-6.3 Sports lens is renowned for its superior optics and durability in fast-paced, high-action photo scenarios. The Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 Contemporary lens is a versatile lens that offers similar performance in a more compact and lightweight design. Performance capabilities common to both telephoto lenses include advanced two-mode optical stabilization, enhanced auto focus algorithm, sophisticated Hyper Sonic Motor for quiet and fast focusing, along with zoom locking at all marked focal lengths and performance.

The compatible Sigma TC-1401 1.4X Teleconverter, which is also dust- and splash-proof, preserves Sigma lens DNA, ensuring optimum performance with every shot. Supporting auto focus up to F8, the 1.4X Teleconverter incorporates an SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element that maintains the exceptional image quality of the Sigma telephoto lenses with excellent aberration correction.

Sigma Global Vision lenses can be updated and customized with a laptop using Sigma Optimization Pro software and Sigma USB Dock (sold separately). The USB Dock and Sigma Optimization Pro recognize the lenses and the lens plus teleconverter as distinct customizable items. Every Global Vision lens and teleconverter is “A1” tested, analyzed and approved before leaving the factory, ensuring maximum performance out of the box.
