Sigma first introduced a 100-400mm f/5-6.3 Contemporary lens quite a while ago. It’s an affordable yet powerful zoom lens, but it has been available only in Canon EF, Nikon F and Sigma SA mounts. Judging from recently leaked images, Sigma is soon launching a new version of the lens, and it will be available for Sony FE mount, too.
Sony Alpha Rumors obtained two images showing the new Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS Contemporary lens. They’re quite blurry though, but clear enough to see that the lens is quite bulky, just like the 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM that was released in 2017. However, according to Sony Alpha Rumors, it’s still lighter and smaller than the Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5–5.6 GM OSS. And it’s less expensive too. While the Sony lens costs nearly $2,500, the upcoming Sigma zoom will be reportedly priced at around $1,000.
There aren’t many more details except that the lens will have stabilization and a linear motor. It will reportedly also be compatible with Sigma extenders. There’s no word on the release date yet, but I assume we’ll see the new Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 quite soon.
