Whilst Sigma's Digital Division has been busy developing the ground breaking
SD-9 digital SLR, their analogue design team has been busy burning the midnight
120-300mm F2.8 EX IF HSM
A new telephoto zoom lens, which retains a constant fast aperture of F2.8
at all focal lengths.
This telephoto zoom lens has a large aperture of F2.8 that is constant throughout
the zoom range. The angle of view of the 120-300mmF2.8 varies from 20.4degree
to 8.2degree and offers great versatility of composition from a fixed position.
Two Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements in the front lens group and
two in the rear group offer effective compensation of color aberration. Since
focusing and zooming do not change its overall length, this lens offers ease
of handling. HSM ensures a quiet, high-speed AF, as well as full-time manual
focus (for Sigma, Canon and Nikon mounts). A removable tripod collar is provided
with the lens. As the front of the lens does not rotate, circular polarizing
filters can easily be used. When this lens is used with the 1.4x EX or 2x EX
Apo Tele Converters (optional), it becomes a 168-420mmF4 AF telephoto lens or
a 240-600mm F5.6 AF ultra-telephoto lens respectively. The lens materials used
in this new lens are lead and arsenic free ecological glass.
