Evaluation of Sigma designations:

  • AF for autofocus.
  • APO- an apochromatic lens, minimizing chromatic aberration. Lenses designated APO can be used with EX teleconverters.
  • HSM - a hyper sonic motor drive providing silent and fast focusing.
  • EX - a high-quality line of lenses, combining reliability, convenience and excellent optical characteristics.
  • IF - a mechanism of internal focusing does not affect the lens size while focusing and without the front element rotation.
  • DG - a full format lens optimized for DSRL cameras.
  • OS - optical stabilizer
  • MACRO - macrography with a max. magnification ratio of 1:1
