Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM OS FLD Zoom Lens for Nikon DSLRs - Pro Lens Kit

Not Available.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty

The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the Sigma APO 70-200 F2.8 EX DG OS HSM. This large aperture telephoto zoom lens incorporates Sigma's original Optical Stabilizer function. The lens covers a medium telephoto range of focal lengths from 70mm to 200mm and has a large maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout the entire zoom range. The OS (Optical Stabilizer) function offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. For Sony and Pentax mount, the built-in OS function of this lens can be used even if the camera body is equipped with an image sensor shift anti-shake system. As compensation for camera shake is visible in the view finder, the photographer can easily check for accurate focus and ensure there is no subject movement. Two FLD ("F" Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have the performance equal to fluorite glass, and three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction of color aberration. High image quality is assured throughout the entire zoom range and an optimum optical power layout provides superior optical quality in all shooting ranges from close-up to infinity. Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghost. This lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), ensuring a quiet and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focus capability. The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 55.1 inches throughout the entire zoom range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:8. The rounded 9 blade diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out of focus images. This lens is equipped with a Petal-type hood. For digital cameras with an APS-C size image sensor, a dedicated hood adapter, which expands the length of the lens hood, is supplied.

  • Lens Construction - 22 Elements in 17 Groups

5 out of 5 stars   Works great on my 60D
By Hipoporay (Huntington Beach CA) June 21, 2013
Review submitted for Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM OS FLD Zoom Lens for Canon DSLR Camera (SG70200SEOS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Rugged, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction, Nice Bokeh, Durable, Consistent Output
Cons:
Other Comments: I have this len for a week now and I'm very pleased with the results. It is extremly sharp at f4 and AF is very very fast. This is my first Sigma so I had some concerns but it works perfectly on my 60D. Also, many reviews complained about the weight. It is not a feather but not a rock either. Very easy to move around with. OS is effectivly ~2 stops and you can clearly hear when it locks which helps me to understand when I can fully press the shutter. Awesome value.

4 out of 5 stars   Good Lens at Excellent Price
By Jon (Virginia) November 26, 2012
Review submitted for Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM OS FLD Zoom Lens for Nikon DSLR Camera (SG70200SNA)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Cost, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
Cons: Heavy, A little soft
Other Comments: I purchased this camera because of the quality of the other Sigma lenses I own and price. I needed a zoom lens that had fast glass (f2.8), great zoom range, I wanted VR reduction, and was affordable. I've used the lens for photographing football games from the sidelines and portrait photography. In both cases, the lens work as expected. The f2.8 across the zoom range lets you zoom in and stop the action, even with cloudy moderately lit conditions. However, at full zoom, 200mm, the pictures are soft. You can remedy this in Photoshop. At 70-120mm the images are sharp, with increased softening at higher ranges.

5 out of 5 stars   Love this Lens :-)
By iluv2fly (Newnan, GA) May 16, 2012
Review submitted for Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM OS FLD Zoom Lens for Nikon DSLRs - Pro Lens Kit (E5SG70200SNA)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Quiet Focus, Optical Stablization, Fast Focus, Quality construction, Tack sharp
Cons: Reversed zoom vs Nikon, Not weather sealed
Other Comments: I have to say that I didn't expect the lens to be as good as it is. It is half the price of a VRII so I expected a good lens but not a great lens. I shoot wildlife and I have taken some of the best pictures ever with this lens. The lens is tack sharp, great colors, fast focusing and quiet perfect for what I do. I thought long and hard about what lens to get. After finally talking to a wedding photographer who used to own the VRI and now owns the VRII and frequently shoots with the Sigma (on his coworkers camera). He was of the opinion that the Sigma 70-200mm HSM OS, overall is a better lens than the VRI but not as good as the VRII. Those words were enough for me to try it and I'm very pleased! The picture below is not perfect in anyway and it is edited in Lightroom to make it pop even more. The Picture was taken when I wasn't ready to take the shot. The bird jumped out of a tree and I had to aim focus and take the picture. That is a pretty fast focusing lens in my opinion :-) I absolutely love this lens!

5 out of 5 stars   Outstanding lens, outstanding value
By Bagels (Merrick, New York) December 30, 2011
Review submitted for Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM OS FLD Zoom Lens for Nikon DSLR Camera (SG70200SNA)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Durable, Strong Construction, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Cons: Heavy
Other Comments: Outstanding picture quality. Super sharp, fast focus, good OS, beautiful bokeh. I've had this for a couple of weeks and have shot several hundred stills plus some video on a D300s. The reviews state the Nikon VR2 is better. I'm sure in the lab you could tell the difference but I've used both and in real life I can't see any difference. This is saying something as the Nikon is awesome but for half the price, the Sigma wins.

By NoStPaul (church Hill, TN) March 30, 2011
Review submitted for Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM OS FLD Zoom Lens for Canon DSLR Camera (SG70200SEOS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Quality of build, price, Weight
Cons: DOF Scale not even close
Other Comments: Now that I own this lens I don't know how I ever got along without it. The price drop was the deciding factor. I was saving up to get one when I realized I had enough. I may never remove it from my 50D.
