Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM

Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM lens

Full frame sized image

Lenses that create APS-C sized image are designed for digital only. They cannot be used on cameras that have image sensor larger than the APS-C format. These lenses are not suitable for film cameras either.


Ultrasonic AF

Lenses with ultrasonic focusing mechanism tend to be quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.


No stepping motor AF

Lenses with stepping motor focusing mechanism are better for contrast based focusing, and are quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.


One or more Low Dispersion lens element is used

Low Dispersion lens elements help to reduce chromatic aberration.


Not stabilized

Image stabilization helps to reduce blur caused by hand shake, especially at high focal length or in low light situations. Image stabilization can give 1 to 3 stop advantage over none stabilized lens, based on the reciprocal rule.


Metal mount

Cheaper lenses are usually equipped with plastic mount, while more expensive, professional lenses have metal mount. In general, metal mounts are more durable, and a good thing to have when lenses are changed a lot. When a camera is used mainly with one lens, the material of the lens mount is not that important.


Internal Focusing

Internally focusing lenses don't change their size while setting focus.


Internal Zoom

Internally zooming lenses don't change their size while focal length is changing.


The front lens is fixed

The fixed front lens is not rotating during zoom and/or focusing. This allows the photographer to use petal shaped lens hood. Fixed front lenses also make the use of polarization filters a lot easier.


No drop-in filter support

Drop-in filters are used in those lenses where either the front lens is too large, or the field of view doesn't permit the use of traditional filters at the front of the lens. Usually bright tele and ultra-wide angle lenses support this filter type.

This lens maintains its large F2.8 aperture throughout the entire zoom range. Two SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements are used in the front lens group to achieve high image quality in a telephoto zoom lens, whose performance is ideal for digital SLR cameras. The HSM-eqpuipped models provide quiet and high-speed AF and full-time manual focus. The length of the lens does not chage during focusing or zooming. With the addition of an optional APO Tele Converter, it is still capable of hig-speed auto focus.
