Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM C available for pre-order for $800
The Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens introduced last month during CP+ has launched for pre-order at $800. The telephoto lens is described by Sigma as both lightweight and compact, offering a dustproof and splashproof design alongside a front lens water- and oil-repellent coating to help keep the glass clean.
Four SLD glass elements complement the Contemporary lens' Super Multi-Layer coating to decrease both color fringing and chromatic aberrations, and they are joined by a nine-blade rounded diaphragm. Optical image stabilization works alongside the Hyper Sonic Motor autofocusing system to provide sharp images. Sigma bills this lens as offering 'exceptional performance at lower shutter speeds.'
