Sigma 300-800mm F5.6 EX DG HSM 4/3
Launched September 2006


APO 300-800mm F5.6 EX DG HSM

Large aperture ultra-telephoto zoom lens gives an equivalent field of view to 1600mm for the Four Thirds system.

This large aperture ultra-telephoto zoom lens covers the equivalent field of view from 600mm to 1600mm when used on Four-Thirds cameras.

By continuously varying the angle of view, the lens takes a lot of the footwork out of picture composition. The very latest lens coating technology and lens design reduce flare and ghosting, a common problem with digital cameras. Two ELD glass elements in the front lens group reduce chromatic aberration to a minimum and also ensure high optimum image quality.  The overall length of the lens does not change during focusing and zooming, ensuring convenient handling.

The HSM provides ultra quiet, high-speed auto focusing as well as full-time manual focus override. This lens is designed to accept a 46mm circular polarising filter in a rear filter holder.
