High ratio ultra telephoto zoom lens covering from standard range of focal lengths to telephoto and incorporating Sigma’s original OS function

This ultra telephoto zoom lens covers a standard range of focal lengths from 50mm to 500mm ultra telephoto range. This lens is equipped with Sigma’s unique OS (Optical Stabilizer) function. This system enables hand held photography for many types of subjects such as motor sports, air planes, macro and wildlife. Four SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction of color aberration throughout the entire zoom range. Incorporation of HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures quiet and high speed AF, while allowing full-time manual focus override. The addition of the optional APO TELE CONVERTER produces a 1000mm ultra telephoto zoom lens.

Covering a range of focal lengths up to ultra telephoto
This lens is ideal for many types of photography such as motor sport, air planes, macro and wildlife. By rotating the zoom ring, it is possible to change the focal length easily from a standard focal length to an ultra telephoto range. This lens has an equivalent angle of view of a 75-750mm lens * when used on digital cameras with APS-C size image sensors.

*The angle of view varies depending on which camera the lens is mounted on.

Sigma’s own unique OS (Optical Stabilizer) technology
The lens is equipped with Sigma’s own unique OS (Optical Stabilizer) function. This system offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible, making telephoto shooting easy. Mode 1 is ideal for general photography and Mode 2 is designed for panning subjects such as racing cars. For Sony and Pentax mount, the built-in OS function of this lens can be used even if the camera body is equipped with an anti-shake function. As compensation for camera shake is visible in the view finder, the photographer can easily check for accurate
