    Sigma 500mm f4 SPORT DG OS HSM Lens - Sigma Fit:
    Sigma 500mm f4 SPORT is super telephoto lens is designed for full-frame format Sigma SA-mount cameras and can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 750mm equivalent focal length. A relatively fast maximum aperture of f/4 furthers your imaging potential with excellent illumination for a lens of this class and a rounded nine-blade diaphragm helps to produce an attractive out-of-focus quality.

    Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) the lens offers quick and accurate control over the artistic effects achieved by the lens high quality elements. The lens works perfectly with auto focus as well as full time manual cameras, without having to switch camera modes or change settings but just shifting the switch from AF to MF. The lens Hyper Sonic Motor and floating inner focusing system ensures quick, quiet and precise auto focusing.

    This lens features Optical Stabilizer system that can compensate for approximately 4 stops of shutter speed for sharper images. Two modes are available, one for general use and one for panning, which uses Intelligent OS for more effective panning in any direction.

    The anti-flare super multi layer coatings reduce lens flare, internal reflections and light scattering that can occur between the surfaces of its glass elements. This lens incorporates a brass made bayonet mount which has both high accuracy and durability. Dust and splash-proof construction with rubber sealing to protect the mount and a water and oil repellent coating on the front and rear elements.

    Features One SLD elements and two FLD elements have been incorporated within the lens design to correct for chromatic aberrations throughout the entire focusing range and help to ensure high image sharpness and clarity. It is suitable to use for sorts, landscapes, portraits, arts, group shots and general use.

    Features: Sigma 500mm f4 SPORT DG OS HSM Lens - Sigma Fit

    Designed for top performance in tough shooting conditions, it features highly effective dust- and splash-proof construction The front of the lens features a water- and oil-repellent coating that allows water to be wiped away easily and helps prevent oil from sticking to the surface
    This feature is particularly useful when shooting in a drizzle or near ocean spray
    The lens is compatible with the exclusive SIGMA Protector LPT-11 (sold separately), which effectively helps prevent damage to the lens during shooting and maintenance
    To help minimize the weight associated with a hyper telephoto lens, the lens barrel is made with a magnesium alloy
    The lens hood is made of carbon fibre, which is both lightweight and strong
    In fact, the entire lens is designed to be lightweight for outstanding performance in tough shooting conditions
    Since photographers often prefer to use a hyper-telephoto lens with a monopod or tripod, the lens features a large and extremely stable tripod socket
    Antistatic nickel plating on the socket parts help enhance the quality and durability of the 90° click stops, which make it easy to switch between vertical and horizontal shooting positions
    The click position may be cancelled by turning off the “de-clicking” switch
    The lens also comes equipped with a dedicated strap for the tripod socket, making it easy to carry equipment without undue stress on the camera mount
    The lens for the Nikon camera includes the electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism and is able to receive the appropriate signals from the camera body
    This feature ensures precision diaphragm control and stable Auto Exposure (AE) performance during continuous shooting
    The lens incorporates two FLD and one SLD glass elements, while the optimized power distribution helps minimize spherical aberration and axial chromatic aberration
    The optical system also effectively minimizes transverse chromatic aberration, which can affect the edges of the shots taken in the telephoto range
    Circular PL Filter RCP-11 is a drop-in filter (not included) that can easily be rotated while the lens is in use
    (A protector that is inserted in a slot at the rear of the lens comes with the lens as standard equipment.)
    The Optical Stabilizer (OS) system features an acceleration sensor to deliver even more precise performance and up to approximately four stops of stabilization
    Two OS modes are available: Mode 1 for general photography and Mode 2 for motor sports and other applications requiring panning
    In Mode 2, the acceleration sensor teams up with the Intelligent OS and its updated stabilization algorithm to deliver effective stabilization while you move the camera horizontally, vertically, or diagonally—regardless of the position of the lens
    This feature helps ensure effective panning and outstanding capture of moving subjects
    The AF function switch allows you to set your own autofocus specification
    The lens can remember the focus position of your choice or turn off AF until it is needed
    In addition to AF/MF, MO (Manual Override) is incorporated as one of the options of the focus mode switch. By setting it to the MO position, it switches to manual focus by rotating the focus ring even during continuous AF
    With AF position, standard full-time manual focus is available
    Using the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, it is possible to adjust the MO position’s sensitivity to switch to manual focus
    Quieter and Faster “Optimized AF”:
    The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures high speed and quiet AF
    With the further enhanced AF algorithm compared to previous models, continuous AF (AF-C) improves the focusing efficiency
    AF Is Effective Even When Tele Converters Are Attached:
    Tele Converters that are newly designed to match the new lens line-ups (optional) can be attached
    The addition of SIGMA’s TELE CONVERTER TC-1401 or TELE CONVERTER TC-2001 produces an AF 700mm F5.6 hyper-telephoto lens or a AF 1000mm F8 hyper-telephoto lens respectively.
    Compatible with Mount Converter MC-11:
    Mount Converter MC-11 allows you to use your SIGMA SA mount and SIGMA EOS mount (Canon-compatible) interchangeable lenses with the Sony E-mount camera body
    Owners of multiple camera systems can now get even more out of their valuable lens assets
    SIGMA USB DOCK - Customizable to Your Needs:
    Customization including firmware updates, focus adjustment, setting of full time manual operations as well as adjustment of the timing to switch to MF when rotating the focus ring is available with the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, by connecting it with the dedicated software “SIGMA Optimization Pro” on a computer
    With this lens, custom mode that can be set depending on the photography situation is available by switching it on the lens Through custom mode, it is possible to set AF speed, focus limiter where desired focus range can be adjusted, and OS where one of the patterns for optical stabilizer can be selected from “Dynamic View Mode”, “Standard” and “Moderate View Mode”
