Product Description

Introducing the Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens

A swift, precise, and compact long-telephoto zoom designed for DSLRs.

Outstanding Optics in a Compact Body

Ideal for photographers requiring a high-performance long-telephoto zoom in a lightweight build, the 100-400mm lens is perfect for capturing fast-action subjects like sports, wildlife, and motorsport. Its portable body, weighing less than 1.2kg, also suits various other genres, including telephoto landscapes and pet photography. Additionally, it boasts a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8, enabling macro-style close-ups.

The 100-400mm lens ensures exceptional sharpness throughout the zoom range, thanks to its four SLD elements and advanced Super Multi-Layer Coating, minimizing chromatic aberration and flare. Compatible with Canon and Nikon DSLRs, it features Sigma’s intelligent two-mode Optical Stabilizer to reduce camera shake in low-light conditions. With additional features like a focus limiter switch, custom modes, manual focus override, and a dust- and splash-proof mount, it offers versatility in various shooting conditions.

Outstanding Build Quality

Crafted with a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) exterior barrel, the 100-400mm lens combines lightweight durability with a sleek finish, providing a premium look and feel. Its internal focus mechanism and Dual Action Zoom enable precise zooming with the zoom ring or rapid adjustments by pushing or pulling the barrel end. The rubberized zoom ring enhances operation and can be locked at different positions using the Lock switch. The lens mount features a durable brass construction and a rubber seal to prevent dust and moisture ingress.

Professional Feature Set

Equipped with an AF/MF switch, AFL button for customizable functions, and a Custom Mode switch, the lens offers convenient controls for versatile shooting scenarios. The focus limiter enhances focusing speed and accuracy, particularly useful in complex compositions. The built-in Optical Stabilizer features modes for general shooting and panning, suitable for capturing fast-moving subjects. With an HSM focus motor, the lens delivers smooth, fast, and precise autofocus for both stills and video, compatible with the latest AF camera technology.

Razor-Sharp Optics Ensure Highly Detailed Images

Despite its lightweight design, the 100-400mm lens delivers outstanding optical quality, even on high-resolution sensors. Its advanced optical design, comprising 21 elements in 15 groups, including four SLD elements, ensures sharpness across the entire frame, minimizing chromatic aberration, flare, distortion, and vignetting. Advanced optical coatings reduce flare and ghosting, producing high-contrast images with rich colours and deep blacks.

A Perfect Option for Longer Landscapes

Popular among landscape photographers, the 100-400mm lens offers exceptional image quality and portability, enabling the capture of small details within landscapes and perspective compression.

Lightning-Fast Autofocus

Featuring an HSM focusing system, the lens delivers fast, accurate, and silent autofocus, ideal for capturing fast-moving subjects like cars, planes, and wildlife.

Compact and Lightweight

At less than 19cm in length, the 100-400mm lens is remarkably light and compact for a long telephoto lens. Its lightweight design makes it suitable for extended carrying and handheld shooting, weighing 770g less than Sigma’s 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | C, albeit with slightly less reach and fewer features.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
