Sigma Launches New APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Zoom Lens

Sigma APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Zoom Lens

The new Sigma APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM telephoto lens is now available through authorized Sigma dealers at a retail price of $2,400. Initially available for the Canon mount, the new lens will also have Nikon version later this month.

Sigma said this 10x high-zoom ratio, ultra telephoto zoom lens differs from its predecessor with the incorporation of Sigma’s original Optical Stabilization (OS) function, which offers the use of shutter speeds approximately four stops slower than would otherwise be possible.

The new lens is ideal for landscape and wildlife photography, but also boasts a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.1 at the focal length of 200mm, which allows photographers to focus close on small objects like flowers. The addition of the optional 1.4x EX DG or 2x EX DG APO tele converters produce a 70-700mm F6.3-8 or a 100-1000mm F9-12.6 MF zoom lens, respectively.
