This also ensures an accurate color balance and high definition results.|
Sigma Asperical lens - Image quality|
The aspherical lens also delivers improved image quality. The use of aspherical lens elements in both of the front and rear lens groups effectively compensates for various aberration throughout the entire zoom range. This design allows for stability and compactness in design as changes in focus are made in an internal lens grouping. This also gives the advantage of a non-rotating front lens assembly, which is of great benefit when using polarizing filter and Petal-type hood.
Sigma telephoto lens - Macro photography
At the 200mm telephoto setting, the lens is capable of macro photography with a 1:3.8 maximum magnification. The minimum focusing distance is 48cm at all zoom settings. And with a photography magnification scale displayed on the lens barrel, the lens is user friendly.
