Sigma Ships Its Most Anticipated Global Vision Lens of the Year and ndash; Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sports Lens

Sigma Corporation of America, a leading still photo and cinema lens, camera, flash and accessory manufacturer, today announced the pricing and availability of the highly anticipated Sports line addition announced at Photokina – the new flagship large-aperture telephoto zoom Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sports. The new lens to complete the Sigma F2.8 zoom trio, including the award-winning 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art wide-angle zoom and the 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Art modern workhorse zoom – the essential tools for professional photographers, will begin shipping in Canon mount in late December for $1499.00. The advanced optical formula delivers the renowned Sigma Art image quality inside the rugged, weatherproof build of a Sports lens.

As Jim Koepnick, a leading aviation photographer and a Sigma Pro, states, “There are three lenses a working professional photographer always wants in his or her camera bag – a wide zoom, a medium zoom and a telephoto zoom. All of professional quality and F2.8 brightness. We call it the must-have trio. With those three lenses you can handle just about any job a client throws at you. The trio in my camera bag has just been updated in a most professional way. I’ve just added the new Sigma 70-200 F2.8 Sport lens. For my type of photography, which includes action, commercial and photojournalism, this lens will get the majority of my use. Putting it to work the last few days, the Sigma 70-200 F2.8 Sport lens delivered in every case with professional caliber results.”

Key Features and Benefits

Outstanding Action-Capture Performance
The 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sports, alongside the Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art and the Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Art, completes the lineup of three F2.8 large-aperture zoom lenses capable of covering focal lengths from 14mm to 200mm. The three F2.8 zooms consisting of wide, standard and telephoto, are also known as “The Big Three Zooms,” offer wide coverage of the focal range, F2.8 brightness throughout the zoom range and extreme durability. Together, the lenses produce maximum performance in various scenarios, including scouting filming locations or overseas reporting assignments.
