Sigma 800mm f/5.6 overview

  • 1Description

The Sigma 800mm f/5.6 EX DG APO HSM is an apochromatic extreme-telephoto lens with a fast f/5.6 maximum aperture. The ultra-quiet Hyper Sonic Motor (H.S.M.) and Internal Focusing features assist autofocus speed and handling.

The DG lens design corrects for various aberrations. This lens is specially coated to get the best color balance, while cutting down on ghosting caused by reflections from the digital image sensor. The lens provides the utmost correction against lateral chromatic aberration, which is a serious problem for digital SLR cameras.

This lens is an excellent choice for any long-distance application, e.g. outdoor sports, wildlife, news photojournalism, and so on.

Powerful and silent Hyper Sonic Motor enables fulltime manual focus override
Sigma's dedicated APO EX 1.4x and 2x teleconverters can be used with this lens, effectively converting it into a 1120mm f/8 or 1600mm f/11 lens
Two Extra-Low Dispersion glass elements reduce chromatic aberration to a minimum
A rotating filter holder in the rear of the lens barrel enables easy use of the included circular polarizer
Lead and arsenic free ecological glass

    Sigma 800mm f/5.6 reviews

    800mm f/5.6 EX DG APO HSM Autofocus Lens for Sigma SLR Camera is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens! I use this lens on a tripod with a Wimberly (gimbal) head, so weight and bulk and electronic IS (image stabilization) are not a problem. This lens does NOT have IS so you don't have to remember to switch it off on the tripod. As your shooting distance increases, the clarity of the air becomes a big factor. To compare one long lens to another, you should shoot them side-by-side or one may be shooting through murky air and the other may have bone-dry air. You'll want a remote release, too. Get the Canon remote/intervalometer and put a Sigma tip on it.
