SigmaSigma 500mm F4.5 EX DG HSM lens introduction : Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the new 500 F4.5 APO EX DG HSM lens. This ultra-telephoto lens has a fast maximum aperture, and also features a new super multi-layer coating, which optimizes the characteristics of digital SLR cameras. Two ELD glass elements in the front lens elements reduce chromatic aberration to a minimum and also ensure sharp, quality images of high contrast. The overall length of the lens does not change during focusing, ensuring convenient handling and ease of use. The AF drive for Sigma SA, Canon and Nikon S.L.R. cameras features Sigma's ultra-quiet and high-speed Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM).
