A 105mm diameter filter is a very rare size as the lens it would attach to would be enormous and extremely expensive thus the lack of response. A Sigma 150-500mm "only" takes an 86mm filter!

As a rule the Sigma professional grade products are very good.

Considering that most amateur lenses have 67m filters and pro lenses have 77mm filters do you really want all that overhang on your lens to get caught on things?
