Where are the Canon 400mm DO II and Sigma 150-600mm Sports Lens Reviews? The Sigma 24-105 Discontinued? What's Next

The "Where is the Canon 400mm DO II review?" and "Where is Sigma 150-600mm Sports Lens Review?" questions are becoming more frequent. Those are indeed good questions as these two lenses are sitting at the top of my priority list. Unfortunately and unusually, I have not been able to get my hands on either of these lenses for long enough to adequately evaluate them. That I'm delayed on these reviews is not likely going to delay your acquisition of either lens as they are simply not available right now. High demand has been completely consuming the Sigma 150-600 production and that is likely the same reason the Canon 400 DO II is not available. What the production level of each lens is remains a question.

Those of you asking about the new Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Lens will be happy to know that we have one in house and have standardized testing of this lens as our current top priority. Stay tuned for more information, but ... this is a really tiny lens considering the super zoom focal length range covering a full frame image circle.

Contrary to some current rumors, the Sigma 24-105mm f/4.0 DG OS HSM Art Lens has not been discontinued. According to Sigma Corporation of America, "The 24-105mm is most definitely not discontinued." This rumor most likely arose from the fact that this lens is very hard to find in stock right now. Sigma assured me that this lens is very much a part of their current line. "We are behind on production but are working on catching up." Sigma is experiencing "... really high demand and fulfilling all the orders across the world has been tough." That is good news to me as I really like the 24-105 OS Art Lens.

Find these four lenses at B&H:

Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM Lens
Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Lens
Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Lens
Sigma 24-105mm f/4.0 DG OS HSM Art Lens
