The flag­ship lens of Sigma’s Sports line of lenses, the Sigma 500mm F4 Sports is a high­per­for­mance tele­photo lens, ready to tackle all your chal­leng­ing shoots. Ad­ven­tur­ous pho­tog­ra­phers will be pleased to know that this lens fea­tures a raft of func­tions that you’ll need when you shoot in tough con­di­tions, such as an en­hanced dust­proof and splash­proof con­struc­tion, as well as a mag­ne­sium-al­loy bar­rel to min­i­mize weight. It’s also got a tri­pod socket with 90-de­gree click stops, which is eas­ily ma­noeu­vrable be­tween ver­ti­cal and hor­i­zon­tal shoot­ing con­di­tions. You’ll no­tice when us­ing this lens that chro­matic aberration, which is a com­mon is­sue when us­ing tele­photo ranges, has been min­i­mized, and it also makes use of Sigma’s lat­est-gen­er­a­tion hyper-sonic mo­tor. Its con­struc­tion is made up of 16 el­e­ments in 11 groups, and con­sists of FLD and SLD glass el­e­ments. Whether you’re shoot­ing sub­jects such as birds, planes, wildlife, mo­tor sport or even por­traits, the lens is very ver­sa­tile to suit your needs.
