The Sigma APO 200-500mm F2.8 EX DG is a behemoth of a lens since it claims to be the world’s first Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens that offers a fast aperture of F2.8 at 500mm focal length. The green monster is ideal for shooting wildlife, sports, and astronomical subjects as it covers widely used focal lengths from 200mm to 500mm.

A 72mm filter can be inserted at the rear of the lens and the lens hood blocks away all the extra light. The dedicated Li-ion battery BP-21 is used to power the zooming and AF operation and the lens also comes equipped with a LCD panel.
