The Sigma 500mm f/4.5 EX DG APO HSM Autofocus Telephoto Lens for Canon EOS is a large aperture telephoto lens that can capture sharp images of fast-moving subjects. When doing sport or nature photography there is often no substitute for focal length. More millimeters get you closer to the subject whether it’s a running back in a football game or a monster moose grazing in a pasture. Two ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements provide optimum color correction and sharpness throughout the entire zoom range and a new multi-layer lens coating technology and lens design formula reduce flare and ghosting. Rear insertion 46mm filters with provision for easy rotation of polarizing filters.
