If you require a long telephoto zoom lens with a fast aperture but don't want to compromise on image quality, this Sigma lens is an excellent proposition. Its fast f2.8 aperture and ELD/ SLD glass mean clear, crisp and bright images ideally suited to wildlife, sports candid portraits and astrophotography.

Optical Performance
As well as SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass, this lens also uses ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements to provide the ultimate in correction of aberrations. In addition, Super Multi Layer lens coatings retain brightness and contrast while avoiding ghosting and flare effects.

Fast and Quiet Internal Focus
The Hyper Sonic motor type is employed in this lens for both quick reactions and minimum noise. Internal zooming also ensures that the overall length of the lens remains unchanged, making handling and tripod mounted operation much easier.

Lens hood and Rear Filter System
The supplied hood is designed exclusively for this lens. There is also a 72mm filter insert at the rear of the lens, and a circular polarizing filter can be used in situ thanks to the ingenious internal rotation mechanism.

Battery Powered
For fast focusing and retention of camera battery power, the lens has its own BP-21 Li-ion battery.

Matched Multiplier
Using the supplied multilpier, the focal length of the lens is doubled and aperture is f5.6. Autofocus is still possible and focusing/ focal length information is displayed on the lens' LCD panel.

Great find ... i have the solid gold version problem is it pulls my trousers down every time i try and put it in my pocket

For that price I'd want to be able to spy on yer sister from 6 miles away :-D

Shame they don't even have the defence of it being a deal - can be had for 7k less than this...
