Sigma 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM Lens
For Canon EF Mount
The Sigma 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM is a normal to super telephoto zoom designed for cameras with a Full-Frame sensor. This variable-aperture zoom covers a 50mm to 500mm focal-range. An optical Image Stabilization System built into this lens compensates for camera shake.
This zoom can focus down to 50cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.32X. The lens supports autofocus and features a switch to disengage AF for focusing manually. A Super-Sonic motor inside the lens delivers very fast and relatively quiet AF.
This version has a Canon EF lens mount. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Canon EF mount cameras with Full-Frame or smaller sensors. Sigma also made this lens available for Nikon F, Pentax K, Sony A, Sigma S mounts.
