Sigma has today announced a brand new lens for Sony full-frame E-mount cameras – the 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS . When mounted on one of Sony’s APS-C E-mount cameras, this lens offers a 150-600mm equivalent field of view.
This ultra-telephoto zoom lens promises great sharpness across the entire focal range. Sigma claims that it rivals its standard zoom lens like Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN when it comes to image quality. The autofocus performance is quite good as well, according to early reviews.
Although Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 definitely isn’t a small lens, it’s actually quite light considering its size and focal range. The lens weighs just 2.5 lbs or 1135 grams! The new Sigma lens will retail for $949, but no release date has been given by the company yet. You can check out a short review by B&H Photo below:
