Sigma APO 150-500mm F5-6.3 HSM lens : The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the new APO 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM. The Sigma APO 150-500mm ultra telephoto zoom lens covers a telephoto range up to 500mm and allows photographers to bring the subject close and short perspective. Sigma’s original OS (Optical Stabilizer) function offers the equivalent of using a shutter speed approximately 4 stops faster. It is ideal for sports, wildlife and landscape photography with handheld shooting. Three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction for chromatic aberration. The Sigma 150-500mm HSM lens is equipped with a rear focus system that minimizes fluctuation of aberration caused by focusing. |
