Wildlife Photography with the Sigma 150-600 mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens by Wayne Robertson

I spend the majority of my time doing landscape photography but over the years I have spent a lot of time doing wildlife photography. It is something that I have a love for and for a few months now I’ve felt the urge to get back out and capture some wildlife images. Recently while doing some woodland photography I was visited regularly throughout the day by a Robin (watch the video here). The Robin is a beautiful small bird with its vibrant red breast and seeing one up close that day inspired me to return with a suitable lens to try and capture one out in nature in the woodland. That lens is the Sigma 150-600 mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary (affiliate link to lens on Amazon) which I use on my Canon 5D Mark IV. I really like this lens, the only drawbacks for me being the size and weight but it’s certainly manageable. I made a video which you can watch here and in it I show a number of wildlife images I’ve captured over the years, and also the images I captured that day of a Robin. I also discuss why I switched to the Sigma lens when I previously had the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM lens (Amazon affiliate link).
