Combining all of the features required
by professional photographers
To make the lens lightweight while maintaining robustness, magnesium is used to ensure high mobility. As a lens from the Sports line, the dust and splash resistant structure* together with the water- and oil-repellent coating on the front lens ensure safe use even in the most challenging shooting conditions. The SIGMA 70–200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports also incorporates Intelligent OS with an acceleration sensor and the latest algorithm capable of panning in all directions. The high-speed AF, thanks to the HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) with an updated algorithm, captures instantaneous photography movement.
Incorporating 10 exclusive low-dispersion glass elements
To provide excellent correction of color aberration, 9 FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements and 1 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element, in total as many as 10 exclusive low-dispersion glass elements are incorporated. From the center to the corners, extremely high resolution is realized, making the lens capable of meeting the most demanding needs of professional photographers in various shooting conditions. By optimizing spherical aberration, a smooth and natural bokeh effect is ensured making the lens perfect for portrait photography.
The three F2.8 zooms that exhibit maximum performance
Together with the existing SIGMA 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM | Art and SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art lenses, the SIGMA 70–200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports completes the lineup of three F2.8 large-aperture zoom lenses capable of covering focal lengths from 14mm to 200mm. The three lenses exhibit maximum performance in scenes requiring shooting under various conditions and circumstances such as scouting filming locations and overseas reporting assignments.
Compatible with Canon Lens Aberration Correction
The Canon mount version of this lens is compatible with the Canon Lens Aberration Correction function*. Matching the optical characteristics of the lens, this function performs in-camera corrections of peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations, distortion, and more, to further enhance image quality.
