The Sigma 500mm f/5.6 DG DN OS Sports lens is an exciting addition to the prestigious Sports line. Designed to prioritize long focal lengths and exceptional performance, this prime lens features innovative optics and a newly advanced OS2 Optical Stabilizer Algorithm. With up to five stops of image stabilization, it allows photographers to capture stunning handheld shots.

Although not as fast as its SLR predecessor, the lens’s compact and lightweight form factor (just slightly longer than 9″ and weighing 3.1 lb) makes it easy to carry and use in various environments. Whether capturing wildlife, aviation, or sports imagery, this lens is a versatile choice for photographers looking for a high-quality super-telephoto option.

The lens offers a 180° angle of view, making it an exceptional option for capturing expansive shots. Its optical construction includes Special Low Dispersion (SLD), “F” Low Dispersion (FLD), and aspherical elements, which effectively minimize aberrations and distortions, ensuring the reproduction of sharp, detailed images.

Boasting practical features like a locking front cap, lens heater retainer, removable tripod collar, manual focus lock switch, and rear filter holder, the 15mm f/1.4 Art lens is a valuable asset for photographers, particularly Astrophotographers.

Both lenses sport an autofocus system powered by a linear actuator (HLA), guaranteeing accurate and silent autofocus for stills and videos. Additionally, the lenses are dust- and splash-resistant, making them reliable choices for shooting in various environments. Manufacturers have engineered these lenses with coatings that protect against the elements and excellent build quality, enabling them to withstand rigorous usage.
