The Sigma 800mm F5.6 EX APO DG HSM is a ultra telephoto zoom designed for Full Frame Sensors but may also be used with smaller APS-C size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 1200 with most cameras. A Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) ensures quiet, high speed and accurate autofocusing while Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting. Two ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements provide optimum color correction and sharpness throughout the entire zoom range. A new multi-layer lens coating technology and lens design formula reduces flare and ghosting. Rear insertion 46mm filters with provision for easy rotation of polarizing filters.
