The first 500mm zoom lens to benefit from an f/2.8 maximum aperture at 500mm, the Sigma APO 200-500mm f/2.8 lens is a self-powered beast of a lens that is ideal for astrophotography, wildlife and sports - where a bright, fast aperture is critical.
Using the supplied 2x attachment this lens can also become a 400-1000mm (f/5.6) super-telephoto lens, still with AF capability. Optical quality is assured as Sigma have included one SLD (Special Low Dispersion) and three ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements plus an apochromatic lens design for correction of chromatic aberrations. As a result quality remains superb throughout the zoom range. As with other high end Sigma lenses, the optical surfaces have been treated with Super Multi-Layer Coatings to minimise ghosting and flare.
The lens incorporates a rear 72mm rotating filter holder which can be used with rotating filters such as polarisers. Distance and focal length information are conveniently displayed on the rear-facing LCD panel on the top of the lens and there is easy switching to a vertical framing position via a loosening knob in the rear of the lens body.
