The new SIGMA 70-200mm F2.8 DG DN OS Sports is designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras. It features Dual HLA (High-response Linear Actuator) motors that deliver rapid, accurate, and silent focusing and can handle challenging fast-action subjects. For video shooters, the lens is stated to have low-focus breathing and a D-clicked iris option.
The built-in Optical Stabilizer function with OS2 algorithm provides up to 7.5 stops of effective stabilization, allowing for shake-free hand-held images in low-light environments. As well as being optically outstanding at all focal lengths and apertures, the lens includes a range of professional features, including a de-clickable aperture ring, a built-in Arca Swiss foot, a Focus Limiter, and weather-sealing for protection in tough conditions.
The SIGMA 70-200mm F2.8 DG DN OS Sports features a unique floating focus system. Two focus groups, each using an HLA motor, move in opposite directions when focusing. This reduces internal movements by half, providing fast, accurate, and near-silent AF when shooting fast-paced subjects such as sports, wildlife, and aviation or fleeting moments at weddings and events.
OS2 optical stabilization
Sigma has an exclusive OS2 optical stabilization algorithm, which provides an incredible 7.5-stop advantage at 70mm and a 5.5 advantage at 200mm. The lens also features two OS modes. Mode 1 can be used for all types of photography. Mode 2 employs SIGMA’s Intelligent OS algorithm for smoother panning shots. Regardless of the lens’s orientation, the stabilization is effective for both vertical and diagonal movement and doesn’t interfere with the panning motion.
Less Focus Breathing
The lens has been designed to suppress focus breathing, meaning that the change in angle of view when focusing is minimized. This ensures a natural-looking focus shift when recording video. Highly backlit shooting environments are no trouble, thanks to the use of advanced technology simulations and high-quality glass elements that keep flare and ghosting to a minimum.
- Lens construction: 20 elements in 15 groups (6 FLD, 2 SLD, 3 aspherical elements) Angle-of-view: 34.3° -12.3°
- Number of diaphragm blades: 11 (rounded diaphragm)
- Minimum aperture: F22
- Minimum focusing distance: 65cm (W) – 100cm (T) Maximum magnification ratio: 1:5.2 (at 200mm)
