Sigma Imaging has announced two new lenses in its Sports line: the 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports and the 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports
Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports
The 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM incorporates 10 exclusive low dispersion glass elements – nine FLD and one ‘Special Low Dispersion (SLD) – to produce extremely high resolution, corner to corner, and a smooth natural bokeh effect.
Customisation is possible via an AF Function button that offers various functions. By selecting it from the menu on camera bodies, or using the optional Sigma USB dock it offers a range of functions. In addition, the tripod socket offers 90° click stops to ensure easier changes of shooting position from vertical to horizontal and vice versa. It can be attached directly to an Arca Swiss type clamp.
