Offering An Outstanding Combination Of Image Quality And Functionality
This lens offers the compact size, lightweight, and high cost performance of a 70-300mm lens while delivering 400mm 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.
Compact Packaging With Uncompromising Image Quality
In designing this lens, SIGMA strived to push both compactness and image quality to the limit. Four SLD glass lens elements and an optimized power distribution help minimize optical aberrations.
Exclusive Low-Dispersion Glass
SIGMA lenses feature up to three types of exclusive low-dispersion glass offering superior performance: ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion), SLD (Special Low Dispersion) and FLD (“F” Low Dispersion). The FLD glass offers ultra-low dispersion in combination with high transmittance and the anomalous dispersion characteristics of fluorite. Meticulous deployment of these types of exclusive low-dispersion glass and optimization of power distribution gives SIGMA lenses superlative image rendition undiminished by residual chromatic aberration.
A Compact Body And Top Performance
In One Complete Package
The ultra-telephoto zoom lens with an Optical Stabilizer System that goes beyond the ordinary.
Introducing the new and greatly enhanced SIGMA “light bazooka” ultra-telephoto zoom lens.
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” implies, they have tended to be big, heavy, and therefore burdensome to carry around.
SIGMA thus incorporate all of the latest technologies and created this SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary for it to be more accessible, lightweight, compact and high cost performance of a 70-300mm lens while delivering 400mm telephoto performance.
