The Sigma 300mm f2.8 EX DG HSM Lens is a fast maximum aperture telephoto lens optimised for digital SLR cameras that feature a full-frame sensor. The Internal Focus system ensures the overall length of the lens does not change during focusing, ensuring convenient handling and ease of use. The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) provides fast, silent AF function as well as full-time manual focus override. This lens is suitable for both cropped sensor and full-frame sensor cameras.
Sigma’s DG lenses are designed for cameras with a full-frame sensor, but cameras with a cropped sensor can also take these lenses. These are large-aperture lenses with wide angles and short minimum focusing distances. With an abundance of peripheral illumination, they are ideal lenses for Digital SLR Cameras whilst retaining suitability for traditional 35mm SLRs.
A versatile, fast aperture telephoto lens for both digital and film SLR cameras. Two ELD glass elements reduce chromatic aberration to a minimum and also ensure sharp, quality images of high contrast.
The new multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting, a common problem with digital SLR cameras.

A drop-in 46mm filter holder in the rear part of the lens barrel can be rotated to facilitate the use of filters, including a polarising filter, in situ.
Simply adding an APO teleconverter (optional extra), means that this lens can be used as a 420mm F4 AF ultra-telephoto lens with a 1.4X EX teleconverter, or a 600mm F5.6 AF ultra-telephoto lens with a 2X teleconverter.
