Sigma announces 70-200mm DG DN OS lens
Sigma has announced the 70-200mm F2.8 DG DN OS lens for Sony's E-mount and Panasonic and Leicas's L-mount full-frame cameras.
The new 70-200mm in the company's "Sports" series of lenses features an internal focus design, and is made up of 20 elements in 15 groups, including six 'fluorite-like' FLD elements, two super-low dispersion elements, and three aspherical lenses.
According to Sigma, it uses dual "High-response" linear actuators to drive two focus groups.
A built in stabilisation system promises up to 7.5EV of correction at the wide end and 5.5EV at the long end, which is CIPA verified.
The lens has a minimum focus distance of 65cm at its widest focal length, and 100cm at the long end.
For video shooters, Sigma says the internal focus and internal zoom design of the 70-200mm F2.8 DG DN OS makes it easier to use on a gimbal, and the company also says focus breathing has been 'minimised'.
The lens weighs 1345g in the L-mount form, and 10g lighter for E-mount. In addition, there's an aperture ring that can be declicked. The lens ships with an Arca-Swiss compatible tripod shoe along with a barrel-type hood.
No local pricing or availability has been confirmed, but in the states it will retail for $1,499 ($2,286 AUD).
