SIGMA 500mm F5.6 DG DN OS | Sports

For many years the thought of using a 500mm lens handheld was unrealistic, but with optical stabilization and the use of lightweight lens construction materials, new opportunities for sports, event, nature, and wildlife photographers have arrived. The SIGMA 500mm F5.6 DG DN OS | Sports is built from materials such as Thermally Stable Composite and magnesium, a lightweight yet robust and splash resistant combination, while SIGMA’s OS2 stabilization algorithm delivers up to 5.0 stops of image stabilization that allows for both working at slower shutter speeds and narrower apertures without busting the ISO budget. Two stabilization modes in the Intelligent OS, one for normal shooting and the other ideal for panning and sports action, get in the game even when the camera is moved vertically or diagonally regardless of horizontal or vertical framing.
