|SIGMA's own unique OS (Optical Stabilizer) technology|
|This lens is equipped with Sigma’s own unique OS
(Optical Stabilizer) function. This system offers the use of shutter
speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. It
makes telephoto shooting easy for many types of photography such as
sport and nature. For Sony and Pentax mount, the built-in OS function of
this lens can be used even if the camera body is equipped with an
anti-shake function. As compensation for camera shake is visible in the
view finder, the photographer can easily check for accurate focus and
ensure there is no subject movement.
* For Pentax and Sony mount, it is not possible to use AF and stabilizer function (OS) when attaching to film SLR, Pentax ist* series and K100D DSLR cameras.
