Capturing Tack Sharp Images Up Close or From a Distance
Whether this is a gift for Dad or yourself, the full-frame Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 Contemporary lens is ideal for capturing all the action up close without having to be in the middle of it. The long reach lets you sit back but still zoom in tight on the stage or on the field. The three-zone focus limiter means you get a faster autofocus response, so no matter how quick the moment is, you aren't waiting for your camera to focus. And for those long nature walks, you'll appreciate the easy-to-handle, lightweight design while your pictures benefit from the Optical Stabilizer (OS). The OS means you can take full advantage of that 400mm zoom and still get incredibly sharp pictures without using a tripod.
Sigma's 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 Macro Contemporary all-in-one lens is designed specifically for crop-sensor DSLRs and allows photographers to capture all types of photography in a single high-zoom ratio lens. Whether it is a wide-angle group shot, zoomed in on the winning play or a high magnification close-up, the 28-450mm equivalent focal range takes it all in. Pairing high-quality glass, the Optical Stabilizer, and the renowned Sigma Global Vision engineering, the high-performance 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 can be used in any situation from macro to telephoto with outstanding results and incredible detail with every shot.
