The lens will be part of the company's 'Sports' series of lenses, and becomes the second lens (after the 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG DN OS) to have its focus driven by an 'HLA' 'high response' linear actuator. Despite being part of the Sport series, Sigma makes clear it is designed to work alongside the 14-24mm F2.8 and 24-70mm F2.8 lenses from the Art series.

Specs released by Sigma France show it will have 20 elements in 15 groups, including six fluorite-like FLD elements, two super-low dispersion elements and three aspherical lenses. It will have a 77mm filter diameter and will weigh 1345g (47.4 oz) in L-mount form and 10g (0.7 oz) less in E-mount.

Pricing has not yet been announced but the company says it will be available from December this year.

The SIGMA 70-200mm F2.8 DG DN OS | Sports is a large-aperture zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras. In addition to the expressive imaging capabilities owing to the latest optical design, the lens offers a high level of performance and features that meet the expectations of professionals in both still and video, including high-speed autofocus with HLA (High-response Linear Actuator), optical stabilizer with the latest algorithm “OS2”, and the superior weather resistance of SIGMA’s Sports line.

Combined with the SIGMA 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN | Art and the SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art, SIGMA's three zoom lenses for full-frame mirrorless cameras with a bright F2.8 constant aperture cover a wide range of focal lengths.
