Covering all the essence. Portable, durable and of a high-standard. A masterpiece of hyper-telephoto zoom lens.
Dust and splash-proof, zoom lock at every focus distance, water-repellent coating, compatibility with the new tele converters, new OS system with accelerometer, easily accessible manual over-ride switch, optimized auto focusing, telephoto shooting at 600mm, minimized chromatic aberration for higher optical performance and enhanced enjoyment with beautiful build quality. Since telephoto zoom lenses are often used under very challenging situations, this model has crystallised all the possible qualities and features to achieve the best optical and action-capture performance. While combining high portability and durability, this high-performance hyper-telephoto zoom lens from Sigma's Sports line offers outstanding rendering capabilities. Its versatility provides better flexibility for wider shooting scenes, and the high-performance definitely stimulates photographers' artistic expression.
Achieves the best optical performance that embodies the product concept of the Sports line
By incorporating excellent optical glass elements, it minimises chromatic aberration and achieves class leading image quality.
This lens incorporates 2 FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite, and 3 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements, and compensates for color aberration at the utmost. Chromatic aberration in particular, which could be visible especially towards the telephoto-end even when stopped down, is corrected by the optimized design of glass elements including FLD lenses.
High-end model with enhanced durability.
Dust-proof and splash-proof construction is designed for higher durability. It is able to meet the demands that professional photographers would require in challenging shooting conditions, such as in the rain.
Zoom lock switch can be set at any focal length
The new zoom lock switch enables the zoom ring to be locked at any focal length. It can be fixed at the photographer’s desirable focal length, which allows stable shooting whether the lens is positioned upward or downward. It also helps during long exposure photography.
Water- and oil-repellent coating
Forefront and rear lenses incorporate a water and oil-repellent coating that allows water to be wiped away easily and prevents oil and fat from sticking to the surface, even in challenging shooting conditions. At the same time, the maintenance of the lens surface becomes easier.
Manual override incorporated to make two full-time manual modes switchable
In addition to AF/MF, MO (Manual Override) is incorporated as one of the options of the focus mode switch. By setting it to the MO position, it switches to manual focus by rotating the focus ring even during continuous AF. With AF position, standard full-time manual focus is available. Using the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, it is possible to adjust the MO position’s sensitivity to switch to manual focus.
Newly designed tripod socket
The tripod socket is newly designed since hyper-telephoto zoom lenses like this one which has 600mm telephoto-end often need a monopod or tripod for shooting. While ensuring that the tripod socket is large and stable, it’s possible to click the position at every 90?to make the change of shooting position from vertical to horizontal (and vice versa) much easier. By attaching the supplied strap, the lens can be carried safely without putting unnecessary pressure on the mount of the camera.
Offering excellent usability as a straight zoom
This lens is optimized to allow the lens front to expand/contract smoothly in order to immediately adopt without adjusting the holding position, even to a sudden change in angle-of-view. The lens front is designed to ensure easy handling in such situations.
High action-capture performance that enables any photographer with high demands to get the exact shots they want.
Accelerometer enables panning photography both in vertical and horizontal position.
The OS (Optical Stabilizer) function using an accelerometer has been incorporated to ensure high accuracy. OS Mode 1 is suitable for general photography, and Mode 2 is ideal for panning shooting for motor sports etc. With Mode 2, the accelerometer works effectively to minimize blur while shooting by detecting whether the camera is positioned vertically or horizontally.
Quiet and fast AF
The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures high speed and quiet AF as well as full-time manual focus override by rotation of the focus ring. With the enhanced AF algorithm, smoother AF is achieved. The full time manual, which offers further adjustment after focusing with AF mode, is possible. By using USB Dock, you can change and adjust the AF speed at your convenience.
Customization and flexible adjustment
Customization including firmware updates, focus adjustment, setting of full time manual operations as well as adjustment of the timing to switch to MF when rotating the focus ring is available with the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, by connecting it with the dedicated software “SIGMA Optimization Pro” on a computer. With this lens, custom mode that can be set depending on the photography situation is available by switching it on the lens. Through custom mode, it is possible to set AF speed, focus limiter where desired focus range can be adjusted, and OS where one of the patterns for optical stabilizer can be selected from “Dynamic View Mode”, “Standard” and “Moderate View Mode”.
Brass made bayonet mount
This lens incorporates a brass made bayonet mount which has both high accuracy and durability. A special treatment to reinforce its strength is applied to the surface giving it greater strength and making it highly resistant to long-term use.
Designed to minimize flare and ghosting
Sigma's Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting. It provides sharp and high contrast images throughout the entire zoom range.
The 9 blade-rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out-of-focus areas of the image.
Equipped with 1 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element for maximum image quality, the new Sigma Global Vision teleconverters utilize a splash and dust proof construction for long lasting durability. Created exclusively for the Global Vision lenses, these teleconverters ensure the utmost in compatibility, even for large diameter lenses. With effective AF at F8 and 1.4x the reach, get the most out of your Sigma lens.
