SIGMA 120-300MM F2.8 EX DG OS APO HSM SPORTS

Camera - - IN PRACTICE | WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY -

While the 120-300mm zoom is one of Sigma’s Sports line lenses, the pri­mary tar­get au­di­ence is wildlife pho­tog­ra­phers, es­pe­cially as the f2.8 con­stant aper­ture gives en­hanced ca­pa­bil­i­ties in low light sit­u­a­tions, as does the dual-mode im­age sta­biliser. APO-spec op­tics de­liver high lev­els of cor­rec­tion for lens aber­ra­tions, in­creas­ing both sharp­ness and con­trast. Ad­di­tion­ally, Sigma’s Su­per Multi-Layer Coat­ing’ re­duces flare and ghost­ing. A re­designed cam gives a smoother zoom­ing ac­tion while the HSM aut­o­fo­cus­ing drive uses new al­go­rithms to im­prove speed and lin­ear­ity. The ex­ter­nal con­struc­tion is weather-sealed and the use of TSC com­po­nents adds dura­bil­ity while re­duc­ing the over­all weight. Think of this as a 300mm f2.8 tele­photo with a bunch of shorter fo­cal lengths thrown in for good mea­sure. Avail­able in Sigma, Canon and Nikon mounts. $5099. Visit https://sigmaphoto.com.au
