Details

The Sigma APO 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Lens For Nikon Mount [4738955] is an advanced optical design of this 10x power high-performance zoom lens. These lenses cover standard-to-super-telephoto range.

Sigma’s own Optical Stabilization, offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. Sigma is the only one to offer OS for Sony and Pentax mount where the image is stabilized in the viewfinder if chosen.

For many photographers, having an “all-in-one” lens is an absolute dream. Especially for nature photographers, the idea of a lens suitable for landscape photography at the short end of the zoom range, while still having enough reach for wildlife is a great option. Add to that, the ability to close focus on small objects in the field such as flowers and it’s the perfect backpackers’ lens. Four SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide optimum color correction & sharpness throughout the entire zoom range and Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and assures high image quality throughout the entire zoom range. With no need to change lenses, there is less chance of dirt or moisture entering the camera and fouling the imaging sensor.

The filter size of this lens is diameter 95mm and the lens is supplied with a step down ring enabling digital cameras with an APS-c size image sensor to use an diameter 86mm filter.
*It is not possible to use a Polarizing filter with the step down ring. If you attach a Polarizing filter, you may not be able to remove it from the lens again.

Powerful Distance

  • High powered ultra-telephoto zoom lens
  • Optical stabilization compensates for camera shake 
  • Carrying case, lens hood, front & rear caps 

DG

DG for Digital

Designed to deliver the ultimate in performance on full-frame digital SLRs, Sigma DG lenses also bring out the best in 35mm SLR film cameras and APS-C size DLSRs.

APO

Apochromatic

In order to attain the highest quality images, the APO lens has been made using special low-dispersion (SLD) glass and is designed to minimize color aberration.

OS

Optical Stabilizer

This function utilizes a built-in mechanism that compensates for camera shake. It dramatically expands photographic possibilities by alleviating camera movement when shooting by hand held camera.

HSM

Quiet & Fast Autofocusing

This lens uses a motor driven by ultrasonic waves to provide a quiet, high-speed AF.

RF

Rear Focus

A rear focus system that prevents focus-dependent variation in aberration, making high-level image quality possible throughout the entire image. With their unchanging barrel length, these lenses also enhance balance and stability for the photographer.

CONV

Teleconverter Compatible

This lens can be used with the APO Teleconverter EX. It can increase the focal length and will interface with the camera's AE (automatic exposure) function.

Features

High ratio ultra telephoto zoom lens covering from standard range of focal lengths to telephoto and incorporating Sigma's original OS function

This ultra telephoto zoom lens covers a standard range of focal lengths from 50mm to 500mm ultra telephoto range. This lens is equipped with Sigma's unique OS (Optical Stabilizer) function. This system enables hand held photography for many types of subjects such as motor sports, air planes, macro and wildlife. Four SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction of color aberration throughout the entire zoom range. Incorporation of HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures quiet and high speed AF, while allowing full-time manual focus override. The addition of the optional APO TELE CONVERTER produces a 1000mm ultra telephoto zoom lens.

Covering a range of focal lengths up to ultra telephoto

This lens is ideal for many types of photography such as motor sport, air planes, macro and wildlife. By rotating the zoom ring, it is possible to change the focal length easily from a standard focal length to an ultra telephoto range. This lens has an equivalent angle of view of a 75-750mm lens * when used on digital cameras with APS-C size image sensors.

*The angle of view varies depending on which camera the lens is mounted on.

Sigma's own unique OS (Optical Stabilizer) technology

The lens is equipped with Sigma's own unique OS (Optical Stabilizer) function. This system offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible, making telephoto shooting easy. Mode 1 is ideal for general photography and Mode 2 is designed for panning subjects such as racing cars. For Sony and Pentax mount, the built-in OS function of this lens can be used even if the camera body is equipped with an anti-shake function. As compensation for camera shake is visible in the view finder, the photographer can easily check for accurate focus and ensure there is no subject movement.

*For Pentax and Sony mounts, it is not possible to use the AF and the built-in OS function of this lens when attaching it to film SLR cameras as well as Pentax *ist series and K100D.
*When using the OS function of a lens with a camera which incorporates a stabilizer unit, please turn the camera's stabilizer unit off.
*This lens cannot be used with film SLR cameras with the exception of the Nikon F6 and Canon EOS-1v.

Excellent Optical Performance

This lens features four SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements, providing excellent correction of color aberration throughout the entire zoom range. The super multi-layer coating reduces flare and ghosting and ensures high contrast images. This lens is equipped with a read focus system that minimizes fluctuation of aberration caused by focusing. High image quality is assured throughout the entire zoom range.

The close focusing capability

This lens has a maximum magnification of 1:3.1 (at the focal length of 200mm). It enables photographers to get close up to small subjects and eliminate distracting parts of larger subjects.

HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor)

The rear focus mechanism and HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures quiet and high speed AF as well as full time manual focus capability.

*AF will not function if the Sony and Pentax camera bodies do not support HSM.

APO Tele-Converter (Optional)

The addition of the optical 1.4x EX DG APO or 2x EX DG APO Tele Converters produce a 70-700mm F6.3-8.8 MF ultra-telephoto zoom lens or a 100-1000mm F9-12.6 MF ultra-telephoto zoom lens respectively.

* The Pentax mount Tele Converter is not compatible with this particular lens.

Hood Adapter HA1030-01 (Supplied)

Hood adapter extends the length of the lens hood and provides more effective shading when used with digital cameras with an APS-C size image sensor.

* When using the APS-C Hood Adapter HA1030-01 with digital cameras with larger than APS-C size image sensor, vignetting will occur. Please remove the hood adapter if you are using these cameras.

Easy Operation and Handling

This lens features a Zoom Lock device to eliminate "Zoom Creep" when the lens is tilted down. When the lens is set to the 50mm focal length, it is remarkably compact and provides easy handling. A removable tripod socket (TS-31) is included, which is convenient for handheld photography. The Rear Focus mechanism makes it possible to use the custom bayonet "Petal-type Hood", which prevents extraneous light from degrading the image quality. The filter size of this lens is Diameter 95mm and the lens is supplied with a step down ring enabling digital cameras with an APS-C size image sensor to use an Diameter 86mm filter.

*It is not possible to use a Polarizing filter with the step down ring. If you attach a Polarizing filter, you may not be able to remove it from the lens again.
