A telephoto zoom lens with tele-macro function and optimised for digital SLR cameras. This performance telephoto zoom lens is capable of shooting with a maximum magnification of 1:2 at the focal length of 300 mm. The Sigma 70-300mm lens is ideal for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and all other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range.
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.
In order to attain the highest quality images, the APO lens has been made using special low-dispersion (SLD) glass and is designed to minimise colour aberration.
