Sigma Unveils 180mm f3.5 lens for digital cameras


Sigma announced a telephoto macro lens optimized for use with digital cameras.

The Sigma 180mm f3.5 APO EX DG lens has a life-sized reproduction ratio and is an HSM model, which guarantees fast and silent auto focusing as well as full time manual focus. It is compatible with Sigma, Canon, Nikon-D, Pentax and Konica Minolta D-SLRs and will be priced 549.

According to the company, the new multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghost, which is a common problem with digital cameras. Two SLD (special low dispersion) glass elements ensure high optical performance for film SLR cameras as well as digital SLR cameras.

The floating inner-focus system features two moving lens groups, which ensures that the lens's physical length remains unchanged. This design also maintains excellent correction for Spherical Aberration and Astigmatism, and provides extremely high optical performance throughout its entire focus range.
