Press release by Gentec International
Gentec International, the exclusive Canadian distributor of Sigma lenses, announces two new Global Vision Lens bundles: the 150-600 mm f/5-6.3 Sports Lens with TC-1401 1.4X Teleconverter bundle and the 150-600 mm f/5-6.3 Telephoto Contemporary Lens with TC-1401 1.4X Teleconverter bundle. Expanding the focal range from 150-600 mm to 210-840 mm f/6.3-9, the new bundles offer Canon, Nikon and Sigma users more choice when investing in Sigma, while offering a great savings to photographers when compared to independent purchases.
“Sigma’s focus on providing photographers, both professional and enthusiast, with exceptional optics at an affordable price is reflected in our new 150-600 mm lens and teleconverter bundles,” stated David Bursach, Brand Manager – Imaging Technical Products at Gentec International. “The high-performance Sport and Contemporary telephoto offerings cover a wide range of photographic scenarios from sports to wildlife and more. When combined with the Sigma 1.4X Teleconverter, customers have even more options with the same great performance they have come to expect from Sigma.”
The 150-600 mm f/5-6.3 Sports lens is renowned for its superior optics and durability in fast-paced, high-action photo scenarios. The Sigma 150-600 mm f/5-6.3 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, ensures optimum optical performance with every shot. Supporting auto focus up to f/8, 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.
All Sigma Global Vision lenses can be updated and customized on PC or Mac using the 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 tested, analyzed and approved before leaving the factory, ensuring maximum performance out of the box.
The 150-600 mm f/5-6.3 Sports and 1.4X Teleconverter bundle has a suggested retail price (SRP) of $3,099.95. The SRP for the 150-600 mm f/5-6.3 Contemporary and 1.4X Teleconverter bundle is $1,799.95. The kits will be available at the end of May at Sigma Authorized dealers across Canada.
