Sigma 300-800mm F5.6 EX DG APO IF HSM AF Zoom Lens for Sigma:
Sigma 300-800mm F5.6 EX DG APO IF HSM AF Zoom Lens is an extreme telephoto zoom lens that is ideal for nature, outdoor or sports photography. This lens provides a relatively large constant f/5.6 maximum aperture at all focal lengths.

With use of Apochromatic design and two ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements give full correction of chromatic aberration and provide a high level of optical performance. The improved DG lens design corrects for various aberrations. This lens is specially coated to get the best color balance whilst cutting down on ghosting caused by reflections from the digital image sensor. It provides the utmost correction against lateral chromatic aberration, which is a serious problem for digital SLR cameras.

It is also possible to use this lens with Sigma 1.4x EX and 2x EX APO Tele Converters to convert this lens into an ultra tele-zoom lens, effectively converting it into a 420-1120mm f/8 or 600-1600mm f/11 lens. The lens materials used in this lens are lead and arsenic free ecological glass.

With the Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM), the lens produce quick, smooth and quiet autofocus performance with full-time manual focus override. This lens is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.
