Description

Details

Loaded with almost every piece of technology in Sigmas Global Vision arsenal, the Sigma 500mm F4.0 Sports DG OS HSM, Mount for Sigma takes its spot as the flagship in the speedy Sports line. Available here with a Sigma SA mount, this super telephoto lens lets you capture distant subjects, and with a speedy Hyper Sonic AF motor users will be able to easily track fast action. A relatively fast maximum aperture of f/4 furthers your imaging potential with excellent illumination for a lens of this class. One SLD and two FLD elements help ensure outstanding optical performance by minimizing aberrations and distortion while a Super Multi-Layer coating combats flare and ghosting. Also, this lens is equipped with an Optical Stabilizer system that compensates for up to 4 stops of shutter speed.

SIGMA 500MM F4.0 SPORTS DG OS HSM, MOUNT FOR SIGMA FEATURES

OUTSTANDING FUNCTIONALITY FOR CHALLENGING SHOOTS.

Ideal for all sports photography: birds, animals, and other nature shots; airplanes and trains; motorsports portraits; and much more.

WATER- AND OIL-REPELLENT COATING AND AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVE PROTECTOR

Designed for top performance in tough shooting conditions, the SIGMA 500mm F4 DG HSM Sports features a highly effective dust and splash-resistant structure. The front of the lens features a water- and oil-repellent coating that allows water to be wiped away easily and helps prevent oil from sticking to the surface. This feature is particularly useful when shooting in a drizzle or near ocean spray. The lens is compatible with the exclusive SIGMA Protector LPT-11 (sold separately), which effectively helps prevent damage to the lens during shooting and maintenance.

MAGNESIUM ALLOY BARREL

To help minimize the weight associated with a hyper telephoto lens, the lens barrel is made with a magnesium alloy. Both lightweight and tough, this alloy contributes to the outstanding maneuverability of SIGMA 500mm F4 DG HSM | Sports.

DUST AND SPLASH RESISTANT STRUCTURE

This lens features a highly effective dust and splash resistant structure with special sealing at the mount connection, manual focus ring, zoom ring, and cover connection, allowing photographers to work in all types of weather.

CARBON FIBER HOOD

The lens hood is made of carbon fiber, which is both lightweight and strong. In fact, the entire lens is designed to be lightweight for outstanding performance in tough shooting conditions.

HIGH-PRECISION, RUGGED BRASS BAYONET MOUNT

The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.

TRIPOD SOCKET WITH 90° CLICK STOPS

Since photographers often prefer to use a hyper-telephoto lens with a monopod or tripod, the lens features a large and extremely stable tripod socket. Antistatic nickel plating on the socket parts help enhance the quality and durability of the 90° click stops, which make it easy to switch between vertical and horizontal shooting positions. The click position may be fine-tuned by de-clicking with the press of a button and manually adjusting the lens. The lens also comes equipped with a dedicated strap for the tripod socket, making it easy to carry equipment without undue stress on the camera mount.

CAUTION (TRIPOD SOCKET COMPATIBLE WITH ARCA SWISS TYPE SCREW KNOB CLAMP)

This product is compatible with the Arca Swiss screw knob clamp. Please ensure that it is screwed and fixed tightly. This product is not designed for lever-type clamps. There are some lever clamps available that do not fix firmly and safely.

 Please ensure that 2 Safety Stopper Screws (supplied) are always fixed so that the Arca Swiss clamp will not fall off.

NIKON ELECTROMAGNETIC DIAPHRAGM MECHANISM INCLUDED

The lens for the Nikon camera includes the electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism and is able to receive the appropriate signals from the camera body. This feature ensures precision diaphragm control and stable Auto Exposure (AE) performance during continuous shooting.

TOP-LEVEL OPTICAL PERFORMANCE

TRANSVERSE CHROMATIC ABERRATION, WHICH CAN BE AN ISSUE IN THE TELEPHOTO RANGE AT THE EDGES OF IMAGES, 

HAS ALSO BEEN EFFECTIVELY MINIMIZED.

The lens incorporates two FLD and one SLD glass element, while the optimized power distribution helps minimize spherical aberration and axial chromatic aberration. The optical system also effectively minimizes transverse chromatic aberration, which can affect the edges of the shots taken in the telephoto range. In addition, image quality remains exceptional when the lens is used with a SIGMA Tele Converter (sold separately).

CIRCULAR PL FILTER RCP-11 IS A DROP-IN POLARIZED FILTER (SOLD SEPARATELY).

Circular PL Filter RCP-11 is a drop-in filter that can easily be rotated while the lens is in use. (A WR Protector filter that is inserted in a slot at the rear of the lens comes with the lens as standard equipment.)

FLARE AND GHOSTING REDUCTION

From an early stage in the lens design process, flare and ghosting have been measured to establish an optical design resistant to strong incident light sources such as backlighting. SIGMAs Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting to help photographers produce sharp and high-contrast images even in backlit conditions. The included lens hood can be attached to block out extraneous light, which can have a negative effect on rendering performance.

ROUNDED DIAPHRAGM

The 9-blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur in the out-of-focus areas of the image.

EXCLUSIVE LOW-DISPERSION GLASS

The degree to which light is refracted by glass depends on the lights wavelength. This fact causes different colors of light to focus at slightly different points. The result is chromatic aberration, the color fringing that is particularly noticeable in telephoto lenses. Most chromatic aberration can be removed by combining a high-refractivity convex lens element with a low-refractivity concave element. Yet residual chromatic aberration known as secondary spectrum may still remain. To minimize this secondary spectrum, which can be a serious issue with conventional lenses, SIGMA lenses feature up to three types of exclusive low-dispersion glass offering superior performance: ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion), SLD (Special Low Dispersion) and FLD (F Low Dispersion). In particular, FLD glass offers ultra-low dispersion in combination with high transmittance and the anomalous dispersion characteristics of fluorite. Meticulous deployment of these types of exclusive low-dispersion glass and optimization of power distribution gives SIGMA lenses a superlative image rendition undiminished by residual chromatic aberration.

FUNCTIONS THAT SATISFY THE DEMANDS OF PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS.

TRUE FUNCTIONALITY WAS DEVELOPED TO FULFILL THE DEMANDING CONCEPT OF THE SPORTS LINE.

A maximum concentration of functions that delivers top-level optical performance and outstanding maneuverability.

Sigma 500mm F4.0 Sports DG OS HSM, Mount for Canon

MANUAL OVERRIDE INCORPORATED TO MAKE TWO FULL-TIME MANUAL MODES SWITCHABLE

In addition to AF/MF, MO (Manual Override) is incorporated as one of the options of the focus mode switch. By setting it to the MO position, it switches to manual focus by rotating the focus ring even during continuous AF. With the AF position, standard full-time manual focus is available. Using the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, it is possible to adjust the MO positions sensitivity to switch to manual focus.

AF FUNCTION SWITCH WITH PRESET AF MODES

The AF function switch allows you to set your own autofocus specification. The lens can remember the focus position of your choice or turn off AF until it is needed.

INTELLIGENT OS FEATURING UPDATED ALGORITHM

The Optical Stabilizer (OS) function features an acceleration sensor to ensure even higher precision. Two OS modes are available: Mode 1 for general photography and Mode 2 for motor sports and other applications requiring panning. In Mode 2, the acceleration sensor teams up with the Intelligent OS and its updated stabilization algorithm to deliver effective stabilization while you move the camera horizontally, vertically, or diagonally regardless of the position of the lens. This feature helps ensure effective panning and outstanding capture of moving subjects.

QUIETER AND FASTER OPTIMIZED AF

The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures high speed and quiet AF. With the further enhanced AF algorithm compared to previous models, continuous AF (AF-C) improves the focusing efficiency.
