Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 overview

  • 1Description

This Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM APO Lens for Sigma is for digital SLR cameras with a Sigma lens mount. The lens has a standard to ultra telephoto zoom range that is ideal for nature, wildlife, or sports photography. The range translates into an equivalent 75-750mm when used with digital SLR cameras with an APS size chip. The lens is also compatible with full frame cameras. You can even increase your telephoto range by using the Sigma APO teleconverters.

The OS (Optical Stabilizer) system minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed 3-4 stops faster. This allows handheld telephoto zoom shooting even in poorly lit conditions.

The use of the OS (Optical Stabilizer) system, HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), APO apochromatic design, four elements of SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass, and multicoated optics all enable this lens to provide a high level of performance throughout its entire zoom range. A rear focus system ensures quick, convenient manual focus and a non-rotating front barrel.

The improved 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.

Note: If the camera body does not support the HSM motor, auto focus will not work.

Designed for use with Sigma full-frame digital SLR cameras. It may also be used with smaller APS-C size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 75 to 750mm with most cameras.
Standard to ultra telephoto zoom range makes this the perfect to carry when you only have room for one lens.
The OS system uses two sensors inside the lens to detect vertical and horizontal movement of the camera. It works by moving an optical image stabilizing lens group, to effectively compensate for camera shake. It automatically detects movement of the camera and compensates for camera shake when shooting a moving subject such as motor sports.
The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) system ensures quiet and high-speed auto focusing with full time manual focus override.
Four Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements provide excellent correction for chromatic aberration.
The improved DG lens design corrects for various aberrations.
Super Multi Layer (SML) coating reduces ghost and flare.

    Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 reviews

    50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM APO Lens for Sigma is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens Sharp, fast auto focus.
    Date published: 2013-12-06
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gets you closer but that's about it I shoot a lot of high school sports events. The 2 main lenses I use are this one and the sigma 70-200 2.8 ex dg apo. The latter's image quality is far superior, even at wider apertures. I know the studio I shoot for is not going to buy a 3k+ lens to lend out to their photographers, so I have to make due with this budget zoom. For the price, I suppose it is ok. If you demand better than ok, look elsewhere. Fully extended to 500mm in well light situations this lens doesn't produce one useable image. I have to constantly remind myself to not zoom in past 300mm. Even at 300mm the images need A LOT of sharpening and correction before I will submit them. It focuses relatively fast and is lighter than prime lenses. Those are the only 2 positives I can draw from this.
