Sigma is allegedly working on a new telephoto-zoom lens for full-frame DSLR cameras. The upcoming model will be the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports which is expected to be announced in late 2017.
The lens will offer a focal length between 70-200mm with a maximum aperture of f/2.8. As we all know the company is trying to organize its lenses into three segments: Art, Sports, and Contemporary. This lens would be added to the company’s Sports series.
The Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports lens features an optical stabilizer technology. Sigma’s improved Hyper Sonic Motor allows photographers to take photos faster with low noise.
