Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

The Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 EX DG APO IF Lens is a massive ultra-telephoto zoom lens that offers an impressive fast f/2.8 aperture throughout its entire zoom range, all the way up to 500mm. Combined with the included dedicated high-quality 2x teleconverter, this lens can be converted for use as a 400-1000mm f/5.6 lens. Now combine this with an APS-C sized digital SLR camera, and you're looking at approximately a 300-750mm f/2.8, or a 600-1500mm f/5.6 (with 2x teleconverter) lens.

This lens covers the widely used 200 to 500mm focal length range, and maintains its fast f/2.8 aperture over its entire zoom range. SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass and three ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction for all types of aberrations, and assures a high level of optical performance throughout its entire zoom range.

Shooting distance and focal length are displayed on the lens' LCD panel, which is almost a necessity with a lens of this size. In addition, a dedicated BP-21 Li-ion battery is used to power-assist the zooming and AF operation. This battery is built into the lens barrel.

SLD element and three ELD glass elements provide high image quality from the maximum large aperture
Green rubberized protective barrel, ideal for outdoor use
Connects directly to a tripod head. The camera can be rotated by unlocking the rear lens barrel and rotating it with the camera attached. The lens has multiple tripod sockets, both 1/4"-20 and 3/8" sizes.
A 72mm filter, including a rotating polarizer, can be inserted into the drop-in filter holder at the rear of the lens.

    Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 reviews

    200-500mm f/2.8 EX DG APO IF Autofocus Lens for Nikon SLR - Green is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get what you pay for I bought this to shoot my kids soccer games and to backpack with. I have the Nikon d3000. But when it came I had no idea that it was going to be the size of a cow. So I also had to buy a truck to haul the thing around. It's kind of a pain to fit in my backpack. So when I go back packing I usually end up taking just the lens and nothing else. I know what you are thinking why would I buy this, to answer your question. I got this because I can. I live in America where we have freedom and I thought to my self. Why not. I could pay for college or even buy a better camera body but like everyone says invest in the glass not the body. So I did

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hidden trick I bought this lens because living in a city I needed a better way to look into other people's apartments. This lens delivered. I am able to read text messages from people's phones in the Prudential. I don't mind the size because I needed a reason to blow out the spare bedroom anyways. I did find the magnification was so powerful and crisp that I was able to see back in time. Right now I'm watching the first runs of the Brady Bunch, epic to not have to watch a re-run. I highly suggest selling a kidney or two and investing in this amazing lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You people are crazy For those of you complaining about the size, you obviously have neglected the carrying handle. Although this is not for the everyday selfie, it is an amazing piece of glass. As a professional I use a three man crew for this. One in the middle for support, one on the end for fine tuning and of course me on the end to turn stuff and push buttons. Most of my work revolves around proving the Apollo missions were real. Using this lense I have some great shots of the stitching on the flag Neil Armstrong planted on the first lunar mission.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing at f 2.8 While touring Rio De Janeiro. My goal was to capture the beaches of Copacobana. Considering the poverty and theft in Rio, I decided it was not a good idea to walk through Rio with my d3x. This lens was incredible! From the rooftop and the bedroom of my penthouse suit, I was able to capture the true beauty of the people on the beach. This lens is a little heavy as im use to using my 50mm 1.4 prime. But it gets in really close.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super product! ENOUGH! with the comedian reviewers! I bought four of these last year; they make a great support for a work platform. I used them in the corners of a big piece of plywood, and they work beautifully! Ive got the big end down and the small end attached to the plywood. Super-stable! In fact, if you arrange them just right, you can slip a 2x4 into the handles and it makes a great step! I use the platform to clean out my gutters (I have a one story house). My neighbor came over the other day (hes a camera nut too), and saw the contraption and just started crying. Very weird! And you can use them as a giant scoop to fill the bird feeders, load fertilizer in your spreader, stuff like that. The only trouble is, you have to get rid of all that glass inside. No problem; just use a cold chisel and chip it all out. Then youve got a great scoop; you might have to jerry rig an open and close fitting on the small end, though, if you want to use it like a funnel. My neighbor saw what I was doing, but he left pretty quickly. Then later the rescue squad came and took him to the hospital. Poor guy. Anyway, I saved some of the big pieces of glass. Im going to try to figure out a way to get them to a camera manufacturer; maybe they can use them to make a camera lens. Five stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transporting i love it but its too much to carry its almost the size of my car. BUT THE BOKEH is like a thing of the past

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lens but... I would have given this lens 5 stars but it has lens creep issues. While using a neck strap it will frustrate you because the lens continuously drags on the ground.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great lens I bought this mainly to take selfies, works good but little heavy to carry with one hand
