The recently released full-frame super telephoto zoom lens is a lightweight, yet sturdy, 2.55lb long-reach lens designed for the avid photographer who wants to shoot it all from nature and wildlife photography to graduations and sports with outstanding sharpness and brilliant performance. The 100-400mm F5-6.3 comes with the full range of features and functions expected of a Sigma engineered ultra-telephoto zoom, including OS to reduce blurring effects from camera shake, updated HSM and focus limiter for fast autofocus, and four SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements with optimized power distribution to help minimize optical aberrations.
Camera Systems and Lens Support
The Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports and Contemporary as well as the 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary lenses support Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts, and work with Sigma’s MC-11 Sony E-mount converter for use on the full-frame and APS-C Sony systems.

Sigma Global Vision lenses can be updated and customized with a laptop using Sigma Optimization Pro software and Sigma USB Dock (sold separately). Every Sigma Global Vision lens is “A1” tested, analyzed and approved before leaving the Sigma sole manufacturing facility in Aizu, Japan, ensuring maximum performance out of the box.
About the Sigma Mount Converter MC-11
Engineered for Sony E-mount cameras, the Sigma MC-11 features an internal control data system that automatically optimizes performance of AF drive, aperture control and other critical lens functions such as brightness and correct transverse chromatic aberration, distortion and more. Outstanding compatibility with both Sigma lens optical stabilization and Sony in-camera sensor shift stabilization ensures correction of camera shake and other stability issues and when used with in-camera stabilization, MC-11 allows angle shake correction in the lens. The integrated flocking helps prevent internal reflections and reduction in lens performance for Sony E-mount, full-frame and APS-C sensor cameras. The Sigma MC-11 gives Sony E-mount camera users access to 15 high-performance Sigma Canon Mount (EF) and Sigma Mount (SA) Global Vision lenses.
