However, the new flagship lens of our Sports line, the SIGMA 500mm F4 DG OS HSM|Sports fulfills this need while incorporating SIGMA’s latest technologies and delivering a full range of advanced features and functions: enhanced dust and splash resistant structure*, Optical Stabilizer (OS) system, SIGMA Tele Converter compatibility, AF function switch, SIGMA’s latest-generation Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM), and more. Combining top-level optical performance with functionality for challenging shoots, SIGMA 500mm F4 DG OS HSM|Sports sets a new standard for high-performance telephoto lenses.

* Although this construction allows the lens to be used in light rain, it is not the same as being waterproof.

In addition to the highest levels of optical performance and photographic expression, SIGMA’s new Sports line of lenses offers the kind of action-capture performance that precisely executes the intentions of the photographer. Uncompromising optical performance and photographic expression allow the photographer to shoot fast-moving and distant subjects, while exceptional functionality makes possible excellent shots even in the most challenging of situations. Fully customizable, it allows the photographer to create his or own specification. It is an ideal choice for photographing many different subjects; birds, wild animals, airplanes, motorsports, and even portraits. And SIGMA’s exclusive software makes the lens extremely easy to customize.

Features

Support for the adventurous photographer: all the functions you need to perform under tough conditions.

Ideal for all sports photography: birds, animals, and other nature shots; airplanes and trains; motorsports portraits; and much more.

Water- and oil-repellent coating and available exclusive Protector

Designed for top performance in tough shooting conditions, the SIGMA 500mm F4 DG HSM | Sports features highly effective dust and splash resistant structure*. The front of the lens features a water- and oil-repellent coating that allows water to be wiped away easily and helps prevent oil from sticking to the surface. This feature is particularly useful when shooting in a drizzle or near ocean spray. The lens is compatible with the exclusive SIGMA Protector LPT-11 (sold separately), which effectively helps prevent damage to the lens during shooting and maintenance.

Magnesium alloy barrel

To help minimize the weight associated with a hyper telephoto lens, the lens barrel is made with a magnesium alloy. Both lightweight and tough, this alloy contributes to the outstanding maneuverability of SIGMA 500mm F4 DG HSM | Sports.

Dust and Splash Resistant Structure*

This lens features a highly effective dust and splash resistant structure* with special sealing at the mount connection, manual focus ring, zoom ring, and cover connection, allowing photographers to work in all types of weather.

* Although this construction allows the lens to be used in light rain, it is not the same as being waterproof.

Carbon fiber hood

The lens hood is made of carbon fiber, which is both lightweight and strong. In fact, the entire lens is designed to be lightweight for outstanding performance in tough shooting conditions.

High-precision,rugged brass bayonet mount

The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.

Tripod socket with 90° click stops

Since photographers often prefer to use a hyper-telephoto lens with a monopod or tripod, the lens features a large and extremely stable tripod socket. Antistatic nickel plating on the socket parts help enhance the quality and durability of the 90° click stops, which make it easy to switch between vertical and horizontal shooting positions. The click position may be fine-tuned by “de-clicking” with the press of a button and manually adjusting the lens. The lens also comes equipped with a dedicated strap for the tripod socket, making it easy to carry equipment without undue stress on the camera mount.

* Tripod socket cannot be detached from the lens
* Strap included
