Sigma 200mm f/2 DG OS HSM Sports lens patented in Japan

Sigma filed a patent related to a 200mm f/2 DG OS HSM telephoto prime lens in Japan.

The lens in the patent application has a constant focal length and from the DG designation we understand it is designed for full-frame digital SLR cameras.

Sigma 200mm f/2 DG OS HSM Sports lens is in development and if it becomes available in the market it will be ideal for action and sports photography.

The telephoto prime lens comes with a 1.4x TELE CONVERTER. The main competitiors of the Sigma 200mm f/2L IS USM lens will be the Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM and Nikon 200mm f/2G ED VR II models and both are priced around ($5,500). If we see this lens in mass production than we can expect the price will be much cheaper.
