With a 35mm equivalent focal length range of 192-640mm, this lens offers a high powered telephoto perspective.
*Recommendations are based only on the features necessary to perform the application successfully and do not take into account the relative image quality of different lenses
Action close-ups require 500-600mm lenses. Fast ultrasonic focus is a must to quickly capture movement. Tripod mounting is recommended.
APO (APO Lens)
In order to attain the highest quality images, the APO lens has been made using special low-dispersion (SLD) glass and is designed to minimize color aberration.
OS (Optical Stabilizer) Function
This function utilizes a built-in mechanism that compensates for camera shake. It dramatically expands photographic possibilities by alleviating camera movement when shooting by hand held camera.
HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor)
This lens uses a motor driven by ultrasonic waves to provide a quiet, highspeed AF.
RF (Rear Focus)
This lens is equipped with a system that moves the rear lens group for highspeed , silent focusing.
Conv (APO Teleconverter EX)
This lens can be used with the APO Teleconverter EX. It can increase the focal length and will interface with the camera's AE (automatic exposure) function.
DG (DG Lens)
These are large-aperture lenses with wide angles and short minimum focusing distances. With an abundance of peripheral illumination, they are ideal lenses for Digital SLR Cameras whilst retaining suitability for traditional 35mm SLRs.
