Contemporary Lens Line – This lens is the first lens produced as a part of Sigmas Up to date line; deeming it lightweight and compact at the same time as still exhibiting high optical performance. This lens wide range of focal lengths makes is suitable for a lot of shooting applications. Utilizing a smaller OS unit and an optimized distribution of optical and electronic elements, the size of the lens barrel is in a position to be reduced in size by approximately 30%. This reduction in weight is also afforded in part through the usage of TSC materials in the barrel construction. This material offers high durability and rigidity but with less bulk than metal components.Macro Shooting Capabilities – This lens features a maximum magnification of 1:2.8 and a minimum focus distance of 8.7″ / 22cm, giving a working distance of just 2.2″ / 5.5cm when shooting at the 70mm focal length.Optimized Lens Construction – Two FLD (F Low Dispersion) glass elements, one SLD (Super Low Dispersion) glass element, and three aspherical glass elements, including a double-sided aspherical lens, are integrated into the lens construction to help strengthen overall image quality. The combination of these elements provides a reduction in both chromatic and axial chromatic aberrations during the focusing and zoom ranges. A Super Multi-Layer Coating is also applied to lens surfaces to reduce the appearance of lens flare and ghosting, which helps to care for image contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
