Covering all the essence. Portable, durable and of a high-standard – A Masterpiece of hyper-telephoto lens. Photographers typically choose a prime lens when they require top image quality. However, the new flagship lens of our Sports line, the SIGMA 500mm F4 DG OS HSM fulfills this need while incorporating SIGMA’s latest technologies and delivering a full range of advanced features and functions: enhanced dust- and splash-proof construction, Optical Stabilizer (OS) system, SIGMA Tele Converter compatibility, AF function switch, SIGMA’s latest-generation Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM), and more. Combining top-level optical performance with functionality for challenging shoots, SIGMA 500mm F4 DG OS HSM Sports sets a new standard for high-performance telephoto lenses.
Outstanding action-capture performanceIn addition to the highest levels of optical performance and photographic expression, SIGMA's new Sports line of lenses offers the kind of action-capture performance that precisely executes the intentions of the photographer. Uncompromising optical performance and photographic expression allow the photographer to shoot fast-moving and distant subjects, while exceptional functionality makes possible excellent shots even in the most challenging of situations. Fully customizable, it allows the photographer to create his or own specification. It is an ideal choice for photographing many different subjects; birds, wild animals, airplanes, motorsports, and even portraits. And SIGMA's exclusive software makes the lens extremely easy to customize.
Carbon fiber hoodThe lens hood is made of carbon fiber, which is both lightweight and strong. In fact, the entire lens is designed to be lightweight for outstanding performance in tough shooting conditions.
Intelligent OS featuring updated algorithmThe Optical Stabilizer (OS) function features an acceleration sensor to ensure even higher precision. Two OS modes are available: Mode 1 for general photography and Mode 2 for motor sports and other applications requiring panning. In Mode 2, the acceleration sensor teams up with the Intelligent OS and its updated stabilization algorithm to deliver effective stabilization while you move the camera horizontally, vertically, or diagonally—regardless of the position of the lens. This feature helps ensure effective panning and outstanding capture of moving subjects.
Quieter and Faster “Optimized AF”The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures high speed and quiet AF. With the further enhanced AF algorithm compared to previous models, continuous AF (AF-C) improves the focusing efficiency.
The 9-blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur in the out-of-focus areas of the image.
Ideal for all sports photography: birds, animals, and other nature shots; airplanes and trains; motorsports portraits; and much more.
