Description Sigma's New APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is the second generation of this large aperture telephoto zoom lens now inc...orporating Sigma's Optical Stablization function, OS, Sigma's own anti-shake system. Two FLD glass elements, which have the performance equal to fluorite glass have also been added along with three SLD glass elements, all which provide excellent correction of color aberration. In spite of the additions of all of these features, Sigma has managed to make the lens more compact than its predecessor, measuring only 7.8inch in length. For any serious photographer where the 70-200mm focal range is often the most important second lens to own after the initialstandards lens or mid range zooms. The fast aperture is extremely useful and important in low light environments or when shooting fast moving situations where a higher shutter speed demands maximum lights thru the lens. HSM ensures quiet and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focus capability. Super Multi-Layer lens coating reduces flare ghosting and assures high image quality throughout the entire zoom range. It has a minimum focusing distance of 55.1 inches throughout the entire zoom range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:8 The rounded 9 blade diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out of focus images. This lens is equipped with a petal-type hood. Its exceptional versatility as an all-around lens is perfect for journalists and wedding photographers. This latest version of the Sigma 70-200mm is well regarded for its outstanding image quality, light weight and ease of operation. Please Note: The Optical Stabilizer (OS) function will not work with film SLR cameras except Canon EOS-1V. Features Designed for use with full frame digital SLR cameras. May also be used with smaller APS-c size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 100 to 300mm with most cameras Offers Sigma's OS System (Optical Stabilization) allowing handheld photography even in low-light situation HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) ensures a quiet high-speed auto focus FLD glass elements with performance equal to fluorite glass for compensate for color aberration read more
This telephoto zoom lens is designed with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology while retaining compactness and lightness, i...n response to demands of photographers. This high zoom ratio lens is equivalent to a focal length of 88-400mm in the 35mm format (when used on Canon EOS cameras compatible with EF-S lenses), and the image stabilizer effect equivalent to a shutter speed about 4 stops faster than the same size lens without Image Stabilizer. In other words, if the slowest shutter speed you could formerly hold a 250mm lens steadily was 1/250th of a second, with Canon's 4-stop stabilization correction, you could hand-hold at shutter speeds as slow as 1/15th of a second. It also uses a UD-glass lens element to correct chromatic aberration for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range. This new EF-S telephoto lens with great features delivers excellent performance at an affordable price for all photographers. Specifications: Focal Length Maximum Aperture: 55-250mm f/4-5.6 Lens Construction: 12 elements in 10 groups, including one UD-glass element Diagonal Angle of View: 27Ã‚Â° 50'- 6Ã‚Â° 15' (with APS-C image sensors) Focus Adjustment: DC motor, gear-driven (front focusing design) Closest Focusing Distance: 3.6 ft./1.1m (maximum close-up magnification 0.31x) Filter Size: 58mm Max.

An all-in-one zoom for APS-C cameras, the 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM Contemporary Lensfrom Sigma provides users of Nikon F...-mount cameras with an extremely versatile focal length equivalent of 27-450mm. This version also offers optical image stabilization for reducing the effects of camera shake at longer focal lengths and slower shutter speeds. The lens also has a maximum aperture range of f/3.5-6.3 and benefits from the inclusion of one SLD and four FLD elements. Additionally, a Super Multi-Layer coating on the elements results in less flare and improved contrast. Utilizing a Hyper Sonic Motor for autofocus ensures quick, quiet, and accurate focusing, all the way to the lens' minimum focus distance of just 15inch. A lens hood is included with the lens and it is compatible with Sigma's USB Dock for installing firmware updates and adjusting focus. Lens construction with 17 elements in 13 groups Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting for reduced flare and higher contrast images inchFinch Low Dispersion, or FLD, glass is designed with performance similar to flourite elements with a low refractive index and low dispersion for minimizing chromatic aberration as well as clearer and sharper imagery Special Low Dispersion, or SLD, glass elements assist in providing greater clarity and contrast to an image Maximum magnification ratio of 1:3 or 1:2 with optional AML72-01 close-up lens Features a front 72mm filter thread Eligible for Sigma's Mount Conversion Service read more
The Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens is a prime wide-angle lens that provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 35mm, making it a sui...table lens for everyday shooting. This all-around lens is further benefitted by the fast f/1.4 maximum aperture, which is especially useful in low-light conditions and for creating shallow depth of field and selective focus imagery. Also aiding in manual focus control are engraved camera-to-subject and depth of field scales on the barrel that help with setting the hyperfocal distance and pre-focusing techniques. In regard to auto focusing performance, an internal focusing mechanism is used and revolves around one group of three cemented elements and one aspherical element that maintains high optical clarity while also minimizing overall weight. This group is driven by a high-torque DC coreless motor for high-speed performance that is equally quiet and smooth to benefit an array of shooting applications. The one aspherical element also works to minimize chromatic aberrations and produce high image sharpness that is further enhanced by the multi-layer High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating (HT-EBC). This coating works to protect the front lens surface as well as reduce lens flare and ghosting in order to provide more contrast-rich imagery. Wide-angle 23mm lens provides a 35mm-equivalent field of view of 35mm, making it suitable for everyday applications. Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture is ideally-suited for low-light conditions and for greater control over selective focus and shallow depth of field imagery. Printed camera-to-subject and depth of field scales benefit manual focus control for setting the hyperfocal distance and for pre-focusing. Close-up focusing control permits a minimum focusing distance of 11inch, or when working in normal position, a minimum focusing distance of 2' is possible. Metal focusing and aperture rings provide an enhanced feel during use and contribute to greater durability. Internal focusing mechanism employs one group consisting of three cemented elements and one aspherical element to lessen the overall weight and maintain the lens' length. High-torque DC coreless AF motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance. One aspherical element and an HT-EBC coating contribute to high image quality with reduced flare and ghosting. Seven-blade rounded diaphragm produces an aesthetic out-of-focus quality. read more
