New optical stabilizer (OS) with exclusive algorithm
Featuring a newly developed gyroscopic sensor and a new and exclusive algorithm, the all-new OS unit provides a powerful stabilization effect. An acceleration sensor detects camera shake in any direction—horizontal, vertical, or diagonal. This technology allows the OS to stabilize the image very effectively, regardless of whether the camera is being held in horizontal or vertical orientation.
Four SLD glass elements
Four SLD glass elements offers ultra-low dispersion, high transmittance and the anomalous dispersion characteristics of fluorite to reduce chromatic aberrations; giving exceptional image quality.
Super multi-layer coating
A Super multi-layer coating on the lens greatly reduces flare, ghosting, and provides high-contrast for outstanding image quality.
New hypersonic focus motor (HSM) with updated algorithm
A new hypersonic focus motor (HSM) with an updated algorithm provides fast and near silent autofocus. A focus limiter also aids focusing speed by reducing the chances of close focus hunting.
Push/pull zoom mechanism incorporated
The Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary lens features a push/pull zoom mechanism in addition to the regular twist mechanism. This provides quick zoom control to give photographers an even better chance of getting that crucial shot.
