The all-round, ultimate 70-200mm F2.8 is now available.
Combining all of the features required by professional photographers:
To make the lens lightweight while maintaining robustness, magnesium is used to ensure high mobility. As a lens from the Sports line, the dust- and splash-proof structure, together with the water- and oil-repellent coating on the front lens, ensures safe use even in the most challenging shooting conditions. The SIGMA 70–200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports also incorporates Intelligent OS*1 with an acceleration sensor and the latest algorithm capable of panning in all directions. The high-speed AF, thanks to the HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) with an updated algorithm, captures instantaneous photography movement.
Incorporating 10 exclusive low-dispersion glass elements:
To provide excellent correction of colour aberration, nine FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements and an SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element, in total ten exclusive low-dispersion glass elements are incorporated. From the centre to the corners, extremely high resolution is realized, making the lens capable of meeting the most demanding needs of professional photographers in various shooting conditions. By optimizing spherical aberration, a smooth and natural bokeh effect is ensured making the lens perfect for portrait photography.
Customization is possible to improve versatility:
An AF Function button is provided to allocate various functions. By selecting it from the menu on camera bodies, or using the optional SIGMA USB DOCK*2, functions other than AF Lock can be allocated too. It expands shooting styles, depending on the user’s preference. In addition, the tripod socket with 90° click stops, made with a magnesium alloy which is both lightweight and tough, is incorporated to ensure easier changes of shooting position from vertical to horizontal and vice versa. It can be attached directly to an Arca-Swiss type clamp.
