The Flagship in the Speedy Sports Line

The Sigma 500mm f/4 DG HSM OS Sports lens is the first prime telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. DSLR lens in Sigma's critically acclaimed Sports line. Designed for professional photographers, the 500mm f/4 Sports is a rugged dust and splash proof lens created to weather the harsh conditions that many photographers find themselves in when shooting outdoors.

An advanced Optical Stabiliser (OS) touts a two mode switch, #1 for handheld photography, #2 for panning and tracking vertically and horizontally. The new Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) touts 1.3X the torque of previous models for fast and snappy focusing while the state-of-the-art electromagnetic diaphragm is included for Nikon mounts and provides a new degree of performance for high-speed shooting. USB Lens Dock and Sigma Optimisation Pro allow for lens customisation including personalised focus limiters, 4-zone micro focus tuning, OS preview behaviour, AF performance enhancement.

Features

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • ApertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. Range: f/4 to 32

Two mode 4-stop optical stabilisation for sharp images

The Sigma 500mm Sport features an intelligent optical image stabilisation system called OS. The OS system is rated at 4-stops and will provide sharp images at up to 16 times slower shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time. For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc.s than non-stabilised lenses.

The system features 2 shooting modes. Mode 1 provides the user with conventional lens-shift stabilisation; and in Mode 2 an acceleration sensor works with the OS to provide stabilization while you move/pan the camera horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, to provide image stabilisation that is suited towards panning shots.


Autofocus function switch with preset focus modes

An autofocus function switch allows you to set your own autofocus specification. The lens can remember the focus position of your choice or turn off AF until it is needed.


Stronger & faster HSM autofocus motor

A new Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) provides 1.3 times the torque of previous models, and provides faster focusing throughout the entire focus range.


Retains autofocus with TC-1401 & TC-2001 teleconverters*

The Sigma 500mm f/4 DG OS HSM Sports lens is fully compatible with Sigma's TC-1401 1.4x and TC-2001 2.0x teleconconverters and will even maintain autofocus capability*. When combined with the TC-1401 1.4x teleconverter the lens will be equivalent to a 700mm F5.6, and with the TC-2001 2x teleconverter it will be equivalent to a 1000mm F8.

* Only camera bodies with F8 autofocus will be able to maintain AF with the TC-2001 2x teleconverter.
