Sigma's APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is the second generation of this large aperture telephoto zoom lens now incorporating Sigma's Optical Stablization function, OS, our own anti-shake system which makes viewing a stabilized image in the viewfinder possible for users. Two FLD glass elements, which have the performance equal to fluorite glass have also been added along with three SLD glass elements, all which provide excellent correction of color aberration. In spite of the additions of all of these features, Sigma has managed to make the lens more compact than its predecessor, measuring only 7.8" in length. For any serious photographer where the 70-200mm focal range is often the most important second lens to own after the initial standards lens or mid range zooms. The fast aperture is extremely useful and important in low light environments or when shooting fast moving situations where a higher shutter speed demands maximum lights thru the lens. HSM ensures quiet and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focus capability. Super Multi-Layer lens coating reduces flare ghosting and assures high image quality throughout the entire zoom range. It 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. Its exceptional versatility as an all-around lens is perfect for journalists and wedding photographers. This latest version of the Sigma 70-200mm is well regarded for its outstanding image quality, light weight and ease of operation.

Digital
Designed to deliver the ultimate in performance on full-frame digital SLRs, Sigma DG lenses also bring out the best in 35mm SLR film cameras and APS-C size DLSRs.

Apochromatic
In order to attain the highest quality images, the APO lens has been made using special low-dispersion (SLD) glass and is designed to minimize color aberration.

Optical Stabilizer
This function utilizes a built-in mechanism that compensates for camera shake. It dramatically expands photographic possibilities by alleviating camera movement when shooting by hand held camera.

Quiet & Fast Autofocusing
This lens uses a motor driven by ultrasonic waves to provide a quiet, high-speed AF.

Inner Focus
To ensure stability in focusing, this lens moves the inner lens group(s) without changing the lens' physical length.

Teleconverter Compatible
This lens can be used with the APO Teleconverter EX. It can increase the focal length and will interface with the camera's AE (automatic exposure) function.

EX Lens
The exterior of this lens is EX-finished to denote the superior build and optical quality, and to enhance its appearance

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.
