More than two months after first showing it off at Photokina 2018, Sigma has announced its 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sport lens will be available by the end of December 2018.

The lens, which rounds out the signature F2.8 trio alongside Sigma's 14-24mm F2.8 and 24-70mm F2.8, will be available in Canon EF, Nikon F and Sigma SA mounts. It's constructed of 22 elements including one Special Low Dispersion (SLD) element and nine F Low Dispersion (FLD) elements alongside an 11-blade aperture diaphragm and 1.2m (1.31yds) minimum focusing distance.

Following suit with most of Sigma's other lenses in its Global Vision lineup, the 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sport lens comes in at a discount compared to its Canon and Nikon counterparts. Sigma has set the retail price at $1,499 USD, a full $600 cheaper than Canon's 70-200mm F2.8L IS III USM lens and exactly a thousand dollars cheaper than Nikon's 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens.

The 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sport lens is available for pre-order on B&H (Canon EF, Nikon F, Sigma SA).
