Sigma Rolls Out Huge APO 200-500mm F2.8 For Nikon

This huge Sigma APO 200-500mm F2.8 EX DG ultra telephoto zoom lens has been available for Canon DSLRs for some time, and now, it’s also available for the Nikon mount. The lens covers the 200 to 500mm zoom range and maintains its fast F2.8 aperture all throughout.

With a dedicated APO Tele-Converter 2x EX DG II supplied as standard accessory, this giant lens extends its range to 1000mm zoom! Although its coloring resembles a military weapon, we are told you don’t need a weapon permit for this cannon (the green is supposed to blend in with the forest where you would be using this lens for wildlife shots).

The Nikon version of this lens is now available for the same humongous price as the Canon version: $34,000. Now, if I can afford to buy that, I certainly wouldn’t mind anymore the D3x’s exorbitant price of $8,000.
