A compact body and top performance in one complete package. An ultra-telephoto lens with an optical stabilizer (OS) system has several advantages. The OS allows the photographer to take photographs in unstable circumstances. The narrow angle of view makes it possible to dramatically compress perspective and flexible handling of the background. The photographer can thereby make the subject appear to jump out of the image, with the area in focus impressively sharp and clear. Nevertheless, ultra-telephoto lenses have traditionally had some disadvantages as well. As the nickname "bazooka" im plies, they have tended to be big, heavy, and therefore burdensome to carry around. With the goal of creating an ultra-telephoto lens that is far more accessible, SIGMA incorporated all of its latest technologies into SIGMA 100 -400 mm F5- 6.3 DG OS HSM.
SIGMA 100-4OOmm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary offers the compact size, Lightweight, and high cost performance of a 70-300 mm lens while delivering 400 mm telephoto performance. This approach results in a tempting new ultra-telephoto choice for photographers. Offering a combination of stunning image quality and outstanding functionality, this lens satisfies the needs of pros and amateurs alike. Introducing the new and greatly enhanced "Light bazooka" ultra-telephoto zoom lens.
Top performance with the specification and functionality of a more expensive unit. Since its release, the SIGMA l5O-6OOmm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary has won photographers over with its strong fundamental performance and exceptional image quality. The new Lens retains all of this performance in a compact 4OOmm ultra-telephoto zoom package with a filter size of just 67mm and weight of just 1,160g. Yet it also comes with the full range of features and functions expected of an ultra-telephoto zoom: OS (Optical Stabilizer) , HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) with updated algorithm for fast autofocus, focus limiter, and more. In addition, this uncompromising specification becomes customizable with the available SIGMA USB Dock accessory.
Compact packaging with uncompromising image quality. In designing this Lens, SIGMA strived to push both compactness and image quality to the limit. Four SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass lens elements and an optimized power distribution help minimize optical aberrations. Moreover, by taking special care to minimize transverse chromatic aberration, which cannot be corrected via aperture control, SIGMA has ensured outstanding image quality throughout the zoom range.
Push/pull zoom mechanism incorporated. For quick control of the angle of view, the zoom ring incorporates a push/pull mechanism in addition to the regular twist mechanism. The exclusive lens hood has also been designed to accommodate push/pull zooming and overall lens maneuverability. By making it possible to adjust the angle of view instantly, this lens gives photographers an even better chance of getting that crucial shot.
