Sigma 500mm f/4.5 EX DG APO HSM Overview

A truly long-reaching lens designed for Sigma SA-mount cameras, the APO 500mm f/4.5 EX DG HSM from Sigma is a super telephoto characterized by its apochromatic optical design. Employing a pair of extra-low dispersion glass elements, chromatic aberrations and color fringing is virtually eliminated for notable clarity and color accuracy. A multi-layer coating has also been applied to realize greater contrast when working in backlit or difficult lighting conditions.

Benefitting the optical attributes is a Hyper Sonic Motor, which provides quick, smooth, and quiet autofocus performance with full-time manual focus override. The physical design also incorporates a fixed, rotating tripod collar for easy attachment to a tripod or monopod, and a drop-in filter slot permits working with rear 46mm filters, such as the included circular polarizer filter.

Super telephoto prime is designed for Sigma SA-mount cameras, and when used with APS-C models, it provides a 750mm equivalent focal length.
Apochromatic optical design utilizes two extra-low dispersion elements to significantly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for increased clarity and color fidelity.
Multi-layer coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) realizes quick and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
Internal focusing design maintains the overall length of the lens during use and also promotes faster performance.
Nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
A fixed, rotating tripod collar offers well-balanced support for photographing atop a tripod or monopod with either vertical or horizontal shooting orientations.
Rear drop-in 46mm filters can be used and a circular polarizer filter is included for reducing reflections and increasing contrast and saturation.
