Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Lens On Sale

Polar bear sow and cubs napping on the tundra in Hudson Bay

Recently, I came back from my Polar bear photo tour in Hudson Bay, Canada. It was quite a successful trip even though the weather was 'mild' by sub Arctic standard and the bears were not able to find sea ice to hunt seals even in mid November. Came across sows with cubs, sub adult and full grown males with reasonably healthy looking weight, this time of the year.

In past years, they would have been able to start heading out to the bay and try and replenish their weight by actively hunting seals. I came across the BBC2 film crew filming and broadcasting the Arctic Live series on the tundra.

You can follow my travels on Facebook , Twitter and see my works on For those who are into wildlife photography, Tamron and Sigma make some good long zoom lens at an affordable price, like the 150-600mm. I am not recommending these manufacturers but like the focal length of these design. Canon is expected to announce their Super Zoom - EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS some time in 2017 as well.

There is a large, online camera retailer in New York City selling the Sigma 150-600mm lens (Contemporary and Sport model) with a free USB Dock and a $140 promo saving, till Friday, November 27 (Saving Code is LENSFRIDAY). There are other Sigma lenses on sale as well.
