    The Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 OS sports a brand-new optical formula which incorporates a new weapon in the lens maker's armoury, the latest type of glass which Sigma calls 'FLD' for 'F' Low Dispersion. This slightly thick nomenclature indicates that it has similar optical properties to Fluorite, an expensive and difficult-to-work material that Canon has employed in the course of establishing its reputation as a maker of outstanding telephotos. The Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 OS HSM uses two FLD elements within its 22 element / 17 group construction, alongside three elements made from the more conventional Super-Low Dispersion (SLD) glass. Sigma promises that this should give excellent correction for residual chromatic aberration.

    Sigma’s New 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is the second generation of this large aperture telephoto zoom lens now incorporating Sigma’s Optical Stabilization function, OS, anti-shake system which makes screening a stabilized image in the viewfinder possible for Sony. Two FLD glass elements, which have the performance equal to fluorite glass, have also been added along with three SLD glass elements, all which provide brilliant correction of colour aberration. In spite of the additions of all of these features, Sigma has managed to make the lens more compact than its predecessor, measuring only 7.8” in length. For any serious photographer where the 70-200mm focal range is often the most important second lens to own after the initial standards lens or mid range zooms. The fast aperture is tremendously useful and important in low light atmosphere or when shooting fast moving situations where a higher shutter speed demands maximum lights thru the lens.

    The Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM Lens is very sharp in the centre (even wide open) through the mid focal lengths of the lens - Even competing well with Canon's renowned counterparts in the centre of the frame at these focal lengths. At longer focal lengths and especially at 200mm, test results and real-world experience shows the Sigma needs f/4 to produce excellent centre results. HSM guarantees silent and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focus ability. Super Multi-Layer lens coating reduces flare ghosting and assures high image quality during the entire zoom range. It has a minimum focusing distance of 55.1 inches throughout the entire zoom range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:8 The rounded 9 blade diaphragm creates an striking blur to the out of focus images. This lens is equipped with a petal-type hood. Its excellent versatility as an all-around lens is perfect for journalists and wedding photographers. This latest version of the Sigma 70-200mm is well regarded for its stupendous image quality, light weight and ease of operation.
