Sigma Corp. of America Ships Upgraded 50-150mm f/2.8 APO EX DC OS HSM Lens


Ronkonkoma, NY—Sigma Corporation of America’s newly upgraded 50-150mm f/2.8 APO EX DC OS HSM telephoto lens is now available. A successor to the 50-150mm f/2.8 APO EX DC II HSM, the updated lens features Sigma’s proprietary Optical Stabilizer (OS) technology, which now offers the use of shutter speeds approximately four stops slower than would otherwise be possible.

The lens utilizes an inner focusing and inner zooming system for convenient handling and this, along with its OS feature, makes it favorable for handheld, close-up photography. Additionally, the Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) helps ensures quiet and high-speed autofocusing, while allowing full-time manual focus capability.

“This lens is a great addition to our lineup of telephoto lenses, and will be a fantastic tool for portrait, landscape and nature photography,” said Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of Sigma Corporation of America. “This is our tenth telephoto lens with Optical Stabilizer technology and provides another option for photographers looking to produce high-quality images.”

Six SLD glass elements provide correction for all types of aberrations, and it has a rounded, nine-blade diaphragm that creates an attractive blur to the out-of-focus areas of the image. Additionally, super multilayer coatings reduce flare and ghosting to aid in sharp, high-contrast images even at the maximum apertures.

The addition of Sigma’s 1.4x EX DG APO and 2x EX DG APO teleconverters produce a 70-210mm f/4 autofocus telephoto zoom lens and a 100-300mm f/5.6 autofocus telephoto lens, respectively.

The Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 APO EX DC OS HSM is available in Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts. $1,099.
