Sigma 200-500mm f2.8 EX DG
ELD and SLD Glass
This lens can be used to create amazing image expression with various types of photography such as astrophotography, portraits, wildlife, sports. SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass and three ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction for all type of aberrations. The super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides high image quality from the extremely large aperture.
HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor)
The addition of an HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) makes fast, silent AF function a reality. The lens is also capable of full-time manual focus.
Internal Focusing and Internal Zooming
Focusing and zooming do not change the lens' overall length, ensuring it's easy of use either handheld or on a tripod.
Lens hood and Rear Filter System
The lens hood, designed exclusively for this lens, blocks out extraneous light. A 72mm filter can be inserted at the rear of the lens, and a circular polarizing filter can be used in situ thanks to the ingenious internal rotation mechanism.
Dedicated Battery Power
The dedicated Li-ion battery BP-21 is used to power the zooming and AF operation. This battery is housed within the lens body.
The addition of a specifically designed dedicated "Attachment" produces a 400-1000mm F5.6 ultra telephoto zoom lens that still retains auto focus. For the convenience of the photographer, focusing distances and focal lengths can be viewed on the lens` built-in LCD panel.
