About the Product
The new SP70-200mm F/2.8 G2 (Model A025) telephoto lens reimagines the highly acclaimed Model A009 with enhanced optical performance, improved VC (Vibration Compensation), faster AF speed and accuracy, and shortened MOD (Minimum Object Distance) for greater flexibility. What’s more, compatibility with Tamron teleconverters provides additional focal length.
The Sigma 70-200 2.8 EX DG HSM OS is a large aperture telephoto zoom lens which features Sigma technology including a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) and an Optical Stabilizer (OS). Fast, sharp and highly versatile, the 70-200mm 2.8 is a staple focal length for many types of photography including wedding photography, portrait photography, sports photography, and wildlife photography to name a few. Two FLD glass elements (with performance equal to Flourite) and 3 SLD elements (Special Low Dispersion) ensure outstanding image quality through the entire 70mm to 200mm range.
