Sigma 50-500mm f4-6.3 DG OS Lens for Pentax AF
Ultra Telephoto Zoom lens with optical stabilisation, HSM rear focus and Super Low Dispersion glass to offer a high quality and easy to handle optic.
Standard to Ultra Telephoto
This 10x zoom lens covers everything from standard perspective to something more akin to the image size as seen through binoculars. What’s more it’s compatible with digital SLRs with both APS-C and full 35mm sized image sensors. An ideal, flexible lens for motor sports, aviation and wildlife photography.
The OS system within this lens gives up to four extra stops of motion steadying. You can choose from two modes:
Mode 1: General Photography
Mode 2: Panning (such as at motor races)
The 50-500mm DG lens features four SLD (Super Low Dispersion) elements for low levels of chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range, and Super Multi-Layer Coating ensures that flare and ghosting are drastically reduced.
Hyper Sonic Motor
The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) inside the Sigma 50-500mm lens provides fast and quiet focusing. In addition to this, the Read Focus system also minimises image distortions or aberrations during focusing. The rear focusing system also means that attachments such as petal hoods can be used as the lens barrel does not rotate during focusing.
Optional 1.4x and 2x Sigma converters (available separately) to extend to a 70-700mm f6.3-8.8MF or 100-1000mm f9-12.5MF lens
