Features


This ultra-telephoto zoom lens covers a telephoto range up to 500mm and allows photographers to bring the subject close with short perspective. Sigmas original OS (Optical Stabilizer) function offers the equivalent of using a shutter speed approximately 4 stops faster. It is ideal for sports, wildlife and landscape photography with handheld shooting. Three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction for chromatic aberration. This lens is equipped with a rear focus system that minimises fluctuation of aberration caused by focusing. The super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting. High image quality is assured throughout the entire zoom range.

The lens is equipped with Sigma's own unique OS (Optical Stabilizer) function. This function uses two sensors inside the lens to detect vertical and horizontal movement of the camera and works by moving an optical image stabilizer lens group to effectively compensate for camera shake. It offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower. Mode 1 is ideal for general photography, and Mode 2 is effective on moving subject such as motor sports etc. 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 focus and ensure there is no subject movement.

This ultra-telephoto zoom lens covers a telephoto range up to 500mm and allows photographers to freely play with the ability of telephoto lenses to ring the subject closer and shorten perspective. The OS (Optical Stabilizer) function provides stable images though the viewfinder and enables the photographer to easily determine the composition with the narrow angle of view. A removable tripod socket (TS-31) is included, which is convenient for handheld photography.

This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 220cm (86.6”) throughout the entire zoom range.  It is convenient for taking close-up pictures.  It is possible to enjoy taking close up pictures of small or large subjects.

Three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide the correction for axial chromatic aberration.  The super multi-layer coating reduces flare and ghosting.  This lens is equipped with a rear focus system that minimizes fluctuation of aberration caused by focusing.  High image quality is assured throughout the entire zoom range.

This lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), which ensures a quiet and high-speed AF as well as full-time manual focus override by rotation of the focus ring.

Fantastic lens Review by Gareth
This is a fantastic lens. At just under 2kg it's a bit on the heavy side for handheld use but it has excellent image stabilisation and I was able to get a very clear shot at 500mm with a shutter speed of 1/15 hand held!
You can get faster lenses but they are either too heavy and require at least a monopod or don't have as much reach. This is a fantastic leans for hand held wildlife photography.
