Optically, this powerful zoom utilizes four SLD glass elements to reduce chromatic aberrations, ghosting and color fringing. Throughout the entire zoom range an improved clarity and color accuracy is clearly noticeble compared to its predecessors. Additionally a Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied to increase contrast when working in strong lighting conditions.
Balancing the optics, the Sigma 100-400mm OS lens sports a Hyper Sonic Motor to produce quick, smooth, and quiet autofocus performance with full-time manual focus override. An Optical Stabilizer also benefits handheld shooting by minimizing the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagers even in in difficult light conditions.
