Sigma just announced its first-ever full-frame mirrorless telephoto zoom lens: the 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS Contemporary.
According to Sigma, the lens is designed from “the ground up” for mirrorless cameras. Its optical formula ensures “edge-to-edge” sharpness and high-contrast image quality through the entire focal range. “Its superior image quality and compact size make it an excellent companion lens to the previously released full-frame mirrorless zooms from Sigma, the 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN Art and 24-70mm F2.8 DGDN Art,” said Sigma.
100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS Contemporary’s design
The 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS Contemporary consists of 16 groups of 22 elements. One of the elements is an FLD and four others are SLDs. Together, these correct aberrations and distortions. Additionally, it features a stepping motor system. The system, according to Sigma, will optimize both phase-detection AF and contrast AF. Sigma says the lens makes shooting video with eye-tracking AF “very smooth.” It sustains its level of optical performance at every focal length.
According to Sigma, the 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS Contemporary “consistently achieves high levels of optical performance and makes the most of its capabilities as a zoom lens at every focal length from wide to close-up shots to telephoto photography.”
According to Sigma, if you pair the 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS Contemporary with the new Sigma Teleconverter TC-1411 and TC-2011, the lens becomes a “super telephoto” lens. Its range length will go up to 800 mm while still having a compact design. It functions as a 140-560mm F7-9 AF ultra-telephoto lens with the Sigma Teleconverter TC-1411. Also, it functions as a 200-800mm F10-12.6 AF ultra-telephoto lens with the Sigma Teleconverter TC-2011
