Sigma DG OS 70-200mm F2.8 EX HSM for Canon: Sigma lens is the second generation of this large aperture telephoto zoom lens now incorporating Sigma’s Optical Stabilization function, OS, own anti-shake system which makes viewing a stabilized image in the viewfinder. First up is the APO 70-200mm lens, an image-stabilised fast tele-zoom with ultrasonic-type silent focusing that provides a direct alternative to recent arrivals from Canon. 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 outstanding 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.The all-new optical design uses two elements made of Sigma's newly-developed 'FLD' glass (plus three of SLD glass) to decrease aberrations, a 9-blade circular aperture for attractive blur, and features full-time manual focus override. The Optical Stabilisation system promises up to four stops advantage when hand-holding, and like other recent Sigma lenses. 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 extremely useful and important in low light environments or when shooting fast moving situations where a higher shutter speed demands maximum lights thru the lens. HSM ensures quiet and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focus capability. Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghost. This lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), ensuring a quiet and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focus capability. The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 140cm (55.1”) throughout the entire zoom range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:8. The rounded 9 blade diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out of focus images. This lens is equipped with a petal-type hood. Its exceptional 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 outstanding image quality, light weight and ease of operation.
