Product Description

The SIGMA  300-800mm F5.6 APO EX DG HSM  is another unique lens in the line of Sigma offerings. An ultra telephoto as no other camera or lens manufacturer offers the serious photographer!  Featuring a constant aperture of f/5.6 throughout the entire zoom range, this lens is ideal for photographing wildlife when there is no way of controlling the distance of the animal to the camera. With a simple turn of the zoom ring, the photographer can instantly adjust the composition of the image without moving or disturbing the subject. Similarly, the zoom accommodates sporting photography such as soccer or surfing where the rapidly changing distance of the action requires massive changes in focal length in a matter of seconds. Two SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide optimum color correction & sharpness throughout the entire zoom range. At the rear of the lens, a drop in 46mm filter holder is provided so that the photographer can easily add inexpensive color correction or light balancing filters. A perfect lens for surveillance use, its stealth black finish is unobtrusive and easily concealed.
The exterior of this lens is EX-finished to denote the superior build and optical quality, and to enhance its appearance. This lens can be used with the APO Teleconverter EX.  This option can increase the focal length and will interface with the camera's AE (automatic exposure) function. To ensure stability in focusing, this lens moves the inner lens group(s) without changing the lens' physical length. The lens uses (HSM), a motor driven by ultrasonic waves to provide a quiet, high-speed AF.  In order to attain the highest quality images, the APO lens has been made using special low-dispersion (SLD) glass and is designed to minimize color aberration. Designed to deliver the ultimate in performance on full-frame digital SLRs, Sigma DG lenses also bring out the best in 35mm SLR film cameras and APS-C size DLSRs.
