I have spent the last week in sunny Spain, covering the British Suberbike Championship pre-season testing at Cartagena and Almeria. I have been using the new range of Sigma Art and Sports lenses for a little while now and have a lot of respect for this excellent range of glass. This week I have been able to fully explore the new addition to the 'family,' the simply outstanding, Sigma 500mm f4 DG OS HSM sports lens. Optically, it is simply faultless. For its size, it is light and beautifully balanced to enable handholding. Whilst I have managed to dodge any rain, the weatherproof seals have proved invaluable because of the dusty track perimeters where we work. It also works beautifully with the SIGMA TELE CONVERTER TC-1401 and TC-2001 producing crisp, punchy images.
As a picture is supposedly worth a thousand words, below is a gallery shot on Canon EOS 1DX's with the 12-24mm F4 DG HSM Art, 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM Art, 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sports, 500mm F4 DG OS HSM Sports, and the TC-1401 and TC-2001 converters.
The images are from a selection of my work for one of my clients, Bennetts Suzuki and in particular one of their riders Taylor Mackenzie. I thought it better to deliberately narrow my selection to one rider from one team, rather than simply picking the best from all the images I have shot over the last few days.
