Sigma APO 300-800mm f/5.6 EX DG APO HSM Overview

  • 1Description

Covering an impressive range of super telephoto focal lengths, the Sigma SA-mount APO 300-800mm f/5.6 EX DG HSM from Sigma is a sophisticated zoom characterized by its advanced optics and constant f/5.6 maximum aperture. Designated an apochromat, this lens uses a pair of extra-low dispersion elements to effectively eliminate color fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and color accuracy throughout the zoom range. A multi-layer coating has also been applied to lens elements to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and clarity.

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 zoom is designed for Sigma SA-mount cameras, and when used with APS-C models, it provides a 450-1200mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/5.6 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range.
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 and zooming 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.
Compatible with optional APO 1.4x EX DG and APO 2x EX DG teleconverters.

    Sigma APO 300-800mm f/5.6 EX DG APO HSM Reviews

    APO 300-800mm f/5.6 EX DG HSM Lens for Sigma SA is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Let the big dog eat! If you don't mind lugging around a 12lb lens, this works great. The gimbal head is a must which adds a lot to the weight. If you're into wild life and have a lot of muscle I would recommend the product. They don't have it has an option, but a good sherpa is also recommended. It comes with a back pack which is really not for long distance carrying. I bought the Lowepro and the lens barely fits in it but you can definitely care it farther.

    Is the lens comparable for Sony A-mount?

    Is the lens comparable for Sony A-mount?
    Asked by: Srinivasa
    We're afraid not. This is an SA Mount Lens, it is not an A-Mount lens. Those are two different formats.
