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.

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

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 90į click stops, which make it easy to switch between vertical and horizontal shooting positions
The click position may be cancelled by turning off the ďde-clickingĒ 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 diagonallyóregardless 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 positionís sensitivity to switch to manual focus
Quieter and Faster ďOptimized AFĒ:
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 SIGMAís 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 ďSIGMA Optimization ProĒ 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 ďDynamic View ModeĒ, ďStandardĒ and ďModerate View ModeĒ
