Sigma 100-500mm lens compatibility with EOS rebel T3


Hello I am going to Yellow Stone next summer and need a good lens for capturing the bison. I wanted to know before spending a 1000 dollars if the Sigma 150-600 mm will fit my canon camera EOS rebel T3?



No problem.

It works great on any Canon DSLR:

Ok thanks. What lense you using in that photo? The 150-600?

Hi and welcome to the forum, Zeke:

The Sigma 150-600c is an excellent lens for wildlife.  It is relatively light (for a super-tele zoom), has a good build (although not weather-sealed but neither is your camera), has great stabilization and is a fine optic.   There are lots of reviews in that vein on You Tube or elsewhere on the web.   I had one for quite a few years before I moved on to an RF lens for my R-series camera bodies.
I don't live in North America any more, so I chose a variety of animals that I have photographed here in NZ, where we have no native macro mammals, but I hope some zoo and wildlife park shots will assist.

All of the following images were taken with the Sigma 150-600c, hand-held, available light.

Mine is the Tamron. This was actually at Grand Teton's, but close enough.


I have a T7 and find the Sigma 150-600 lens to be a good lens. I have used it with a tripod for wildlife photos. I also use a monopod for more portability. A word here: I see videos about people having close encounters with wildlife in Yellowstone.

Yeah, the moose was far away, but you often come across bison crossing the road, no long lens needed.

And I would advise you check out the Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2. Although the Sigma C version of the150-600mm is a fine lens, I have one, the Tamron G2 is a tad bit better and for whatever it's worth is weather sealed. Just because your camera isn't weather sealed is not a good reason to not consider a lens that is. Buying today the Tamron is the one I would choose.

Whether you buy the Sigma or the Tamron always hold the combo by the lens and not the camera. Also a strap like the Black Rapid will make carrying the combo a lot easier.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and less lenses then before!
