SIGMA 500mm F/4 GD OS HSM Sports Nikon Fit Lens Features in Detail

The flagship lens of the Sports line

Covering all the essence. Portable, durable and of a high-standard A masterpiece of
hyper-telephoto lens.

Photographers typically choose a prime lens when they require top image quality. However, the new flagship lens of our Sports line, the SIGMA 500mm F4 DG OS HSM fulfills
this need while incorporating SIGMA's latest technologies and delivering a full range of advanced features and functions: enhanced dust- and splash-proof construction, Optical Stabilizer (OS) system, SIGMA Tele Converter compatibility, AF function switch, SIGMA's latest-generation Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM), and more.

Combining top-level optical performance with functionality for challenging shoots, SIGMA 500mm F4 DG OS HSM - Sports sets a new standard for high-performance telephoto lenses.

Outstanding functionality for challenging shoots.

Enhanced dust/splash-proof construction and available exclusive Protector

Designed for top performance in tough shooting conditions, the SIGMA 500mm F4 DG HSM - Sports features highly effective dust- and splash-proof construction.

The front of the lens features a water- and oil-repellent coating that allows water to be wiped away easily and helps prevent oil from sticking to the surface. This feature is particularly useful when shooting in a drizzle or near ocean spray.

The lens is compatible with the exclusive SIGMA Protector LPT-11 (sold separately), which effectively helps prevent damage to the lens during shooting and maintenance.

Magnesium alloy barrel

To help minimize the weight associated with a hyper telephoto lens, the lens barrel is
made with a magnesium alloy.

Both lightweight and tough, this alloy contributes to the outstanding maneuverability of SIGMA 500mm F4 DG HSM - Sports.

Carbon fiber hood

The lens hood is made of carbon fiber, which is both lightweight and strong. In fact, the entire lens is designed to be lightweight for outstanding performance in tough shooting conditions.

Tripod socket with 90° click stops

Since photographers often prefer to use a hyper-telephoto lens with a monopod or tripod, the
lens features a large and extremely stable tripod socket. Antistatic nickel plating on the socket parts help enhance the quality and durability of the 90° click stops, which make it easy to switch between vertical and horizontal shooting positions.

The click position may be canceled by turning off the "de-clicking" switch. The lens also comes equipped with a dedicated strap for the tripod socket, making it easy to carry equipment without undue stress on the camera mount.

Top-level optical performance

The lens incorporates two FLD and one SLD glass elements, while the optimized power distribution helps minimize spherical aberration and axial chromatic aberration. The optical system also effectively minimizes transverse chromatic aberration, which can affect the edges of the shots taken in the telephoto range.

In addition, image quality remains exceptional when the lens is used with a SIGMA Tele Converter (sold separately).

Functions that satisfy the demands of professional photographers.

OS system with acceleration sensor and new Intelligent OS algorithm

The Optical Stabilizer (OS) system features an acceleration sensor to deliver even more precise performance and up to approximately four stops of stabilization.

Two OS modes are available:

  • Mode 1 for general photography
  • Mode 2 for motor sports and other applications requiring panning.

In Mode 2, the acceleration sensor teams up with the Intelligent OS and its updated stabilization algorithm to deliver effective stabilization while you move the camera horizontally, vertically, or diagonally regardless of the position of the lens.

This feature helps ensure effective panning and outstanding capture of moving subjects.

AF function switch with preset AF modes

The AF function switch allows you to set your own autofocus specification. The lens can remember the focus position of your choice or turn off AF until it is needed.

Manual override incorporated to make two full-time manual modes switchable.

In addition to AF/MF, MO (Manual Override) is incorporated as one of the options of the focus mode switch.

By setting it to the MO position, it switches to manual focus by rotating the focus ring even
during continuous AF. With AF position, standard full-time manual focus is available. Using the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, it is possible to adjust the MO position's sensitivity to switch to manual focus.

Quieter and Faster "Optimized AF"

The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures high speed and quiet AF. With the further enhanced AF algorithm compared to previous models, continuous AF (AF-C) improves the focusing efficiency.

SIGMA Tele Converters, mount Converters, and USB DOCK make possible customization and flexible adjustment for convenience or a specific purpose.

AF is effective even when Tele Converters are attached Tele Converters that are newly designed to match the new lens line-ups (optional) can be attached.

The addition of SIGMA's TELE Converter TC-1401 or TELE Converter TC-2001 produces a AF 700mm F5.6 hyper-telephoto lens or a AF 1000mm F8 hyper-telephoto lens respectively.

* When shooting subjects with low contrast or luminosity value, focus may not be spot on the subject.

SIGMA USB DOCK - Customizable to your needs

Customization including firmware updates, focus adjustment, setting of full time
manual operations as well as adjustment of the timing to switch to MF when rotating the focus ring is available with the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, by connecting it with the dedicated software "SIGMA Optimization Pro" on a computer.

With this lens, custom mode that can be set depending on the photography situation is
available by switching it on the lens.

Through custom mode, it is possible to set AF speed, focus limiter where desired focus range can be adjusted, and OS where one of the patterns for optical stabilizer can be selected from "Dynamic View Mode", "Standard" and "Moderate View Mode".

SIGMA Sports Lenses

While offering sophisticated optical performance and expressiveness, the SIGMA Sports line lenses deliver high action-capture performance, enabling photographers to get the exact shots they want.

With these lenses, fast-moving subjects even at distance can be well captured. This
high-performance line also offers a variety of functions to aid the photographer in challenging
conditions and scenarios. Besides sports photography, these lenses are also perfect for nature shots featuring birds and wildlife, as well as aero photography, trains, motor sports photography and portraits.

Another major feature of the Sports line lenses is their wide range of customization
options: using the dedicated software, all sorts of settings can be tailored to the personal
preferences of the photographer.

Looking to sell your Sigma 500mm f/4 DG OS HSM Sports Lens Nikon F?

Our Verdict

This 500mm lens from Sigma with f/4 max aperture is the ideal lens for those looking to shoot something that is far away from them - sports, wildlife, the moon, the stars, the meaning of life.

Top quality optics accompany a high quality build that is designed to withstand the rigours of shooting in environments where the elements (or in the case of wildlife, the subjects) may not treat your lens with kid gloves, regardless of how you treat it personally!

A new generation hyper sonic motor is incorporated to improve upon autofocus, and the 2-mode optical stabilisation system brings a level of customisation to your shooting - which can be customised further when combined with the SIGMA USB dock (sold separately). 

This lens can also be combined with compatible SIGMA teleConverters, which will allow you to turn this hyper-telephoto lens into an ultra-super-hyper-telephoto lens.
