Sigma’s own unique OS technology
This lens is equipped with Sigma’s unique OS function. This system allows the photographer to use shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. As compensation for camera shake is visible in the view finder, the photographer can easily check for accurate focus and ensure there is no subject movement. The Optical Stabiliser unit has two modes, Mode 1 is ideal for general photography and Mode 2 is designed for panning subjects such as racing cars.
Superior image quality
Six SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction for colour aberration. The lens design provides correction for spherical aberration, ensuring high image quality throughout the entire zoom range.
F2.8 Large aperture throughout the entire zoom range
The narrow depth of field enables photographers to emphasise the subject and the large aperture provides a bright viewfinder image. Together with the OS function, they help the photographer confirm accurate focusing. The wide aperture also allows for faster shutter speeds making this lens perfect for sports photography.
Reduced ghosting and flare
The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides high image quality even when the subject is backlit.
HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor)
The Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) ensures a silent, high-speed AF function as well as full-time manual focusing capability.
Close focusing capability
This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 80cm and maximum magnification of 1:6.3, making it ideal for close-up photography.
This lens incorporates an inner focusing and inner zooming system. The overall length of the lens does not change during focusing and zooming, ensuring convenient handling. The inner focusing system also eliminates front lens rotation, making the lens particularly suitable for using circular polarising filters. A removable tripod collar (TS-21) is included as a standard component.
This lens has a rounded 9 blade diaphragm which creates an attractive blur to the out of focus areas of the image.
Sigma AF 50-150/2.8 APO EX DC OS HSM Lens for Nikon Camera
The popular fast telephoto lens that is specially designed for digital SLR cameras with recording sensors to the APS-C format was developed, is now available with the SIGMA OS technology (OS = Optical Stabilizer) feature, which allows up to 4 stops slower shutter speeds than would otherwise would be possible without a tripod. 6 SLD glass elements compensate for chromatic aberrations and ensure high image quality throughout the zoom range. The Super Multi Layer (SML) compensation reduces flare and ghosting and ensures sharp and crisp images, even at full aperture.
The lens is focused inward, and the HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) drive allows for quick and quiet autofocusing, can be in any manual intervention. The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 80cm and a maximum magnification of 1:6.3 illustration. Because of the 9 blade diaphragm creates an almost circular aperture that provides outside the focal plane for a very pleasant bokeh. By combining with the Sigma 1.4x EX DG APO or 2x EX DG APO teleconverter produces a 70-210mm F4AF or even F5.6 AF 100-300mm telephoto zoom lens.
