Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 DG DN OS Sports lens for Sony E and Leica L

Sigma has unveiled its latest addition to the telephoto lens lineup for full-frame mirrorless cameras – the Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 DG DN OS Sports. The company highlights the lens’s ability to deliver consistent, sharp imagery across all zoom and focus ranges without altering its size during focal length adjustments.

This feat is achieved through an optical design incorporating 20 elements in 15 groups, comprising 6 FLD, 2 SLD, and 3 aspherical elements. The lens offers a viewing angle ranging from 34.3° to 12.3°, with an 11-blade aperture system boasting rounded blades and a minimum aperture value of F/22.

Its minimum focusing distance varies between 65 cm at wide-angle and 100 cm at telephoto, providing a maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.2 at a focal length of 200 mm. Weighing 1345 grams, this lens also boasts minimal focus breathing and an updated, highly effective image stabilization system, offering up to 7.5 stops at 70mm and 5.5 stops at 200mm.

Enhanced with a new AF system featuring dual HLA (High Response Linear Actuator) and Sigma’s proprietary OS2 algorithm, the lens incorporates an aperture ring and various switches. These switches enable control over focusing modes (auto/manual), focusing ranges (up to 3 meters, three meters to infinity, and full), two image stabilization modes, and a custom mode for programmable buttons.

Price and release date

Pre-orders for the lens are now available through Bhphotovideo.com and Adorama.com at $1,499. The lens is released for Sony E and L-mount cameras.
