Sigma 500mm f4 Sports lens release date
A New Super telephoto lens is coming from Sigma. This is a 500mm f/4 super telephoto for sports and wildlife shooters. It is a classic focal length and aperture combination. Sigma already had a 500mm f/4.5 version, but now they see the time convenient for an ultimate f/4 version. The new lens has a tough competition both in Canon and Nikon world with second gen. telephotos with stabilizer and excellent optical quality. At this price point is very hard to win with price, people who afford such a thing at all simply want the best lens possible.
