Details: Product Description Covering every essence. Portable, durable and of a high-standard - A Masterpiece of hyper-telephoto zoom lens. Dust and splash-proof, zoom lock at every focus distance, water-repellent coating, compatibility with the new tele converters, new OS system with accelerometer, easily accessible manual override switch, optimised auto focusing, telephoto shooting at 600mm, minimised chromatic aberration for higher optical performance and enhanced enjoyment with beautiful build quality. By incorporating excellent optical glass elements, it minimises chromatic aberration and achieves class leading image quality. This lens incorporates 2 FLD ("F" Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite, and 3 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements, and compensates for colour aberration at the utmost. Chromatic aberration in particular, which could be visible especially towards the telephoto-end even when stopped down, is corrected by the optimised design of glass elements including FLD lenses. SIGMA's Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting. It provides sharp and high contrast images throughout the entire zoom range. The 9 blade-rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out-of-focus areas of the image. The lens is Dust and splash-proof and designed for higher durability. It is able to meet the demands that professional photographers require in challenging shooting conditions, such as in the rain. The new zoom lock switch enables the zoom ring to be locked at any focal length. It can be fixed at the photographer's desirable focal length, which allows stable shooting whether the lens is positioned upward or downward. It also helps during long exposure photography. The forefront and rear lenses incorporate a water and oil-repellent coating that allows water to be wiped away easily and prevents oil and fat from sticking to the surface, even in challenging shooting conditions. At the same time, the maintenance of the lens surface becomes easier. 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 AF position, standard full-time manual focus is available. Using the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, it is possible to adjust the MO position's sensitivity to switch to manual focus. The OS (Optical Stabilizer) function using an accelerometer has been incorporated to ensure high accuracy. OS Mode 1 is suitable for general photography and Mode 2 is ideal for panning shooting for motor sports etc. With Mode 2, the accelerometer works effectively to minimise blur while shooting by detecting whether the camera is positioned vertically or horizontally. 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 by approximately 5%. Customisation including firmware updates, focus adjustment, setting of full time manual operations as well as adjustment of the timing to switch to MF when rotating the focus ring is available with the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, by connecting it with the dedicated software "SIGMA Optimization Pro" on a computer. With this lens, custom mode that can be set depending on the photography situation is available by switching it on the lens. Through custom mode, it is possible to set AF speed, focus limiter where desired focus range can be adjusted, and OS where one of the patterns for optical stabilizer can be selected from "Dynamic View Mode", "Standard" and "Moderate View Mode". The included Sigma TC-1401 is a high standard 1.4x tele-converter that is designed specifically for Sigma's Global Vision product lines. By mounting it in between a telephoto lens and a camera, the offered magnification of focal length is increased by 1.4 times. The Tele Converter incorporate SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements that offer excellent aberration correction. It is unusual for a lens accessory to use one of the best glass materials, yet this is because Sigma is seeking for the best possible image quality, and it is necessary to meet the "SGV" standards. The dust and splash proof construction ensure this tele-converter is suitable for professional. It is compact and lightweight and provides an easy extension of focal range. The TC-1401 incorporates 1 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element. By minimising chromatic aberration effectively, it has achieved excellent optical performance, thus it is possible to maintain the optical quality of the original lens.
