|DG||The lens is designed for full-frame SLR cameras but can be also used on APS-C SLR cameras.|
|OS||The lens is equipped with optical image stabilizer. The stabilizer allows to increase the shutter speed by several stops and shoot handheld in such lighting conditions and at such focal lengths where without stabilizer you will have to use tripod, decrease the shutter speed and/or increase the ISO setting which can lead to blurry and noisy images.|
Sigma lenses for Olympus, Pentax and Sony digital SLR cameras are not equipped with optical image stabilizers because these cameras have built-in sensor-shift image stabilization technology.
|HSM||The lens is equipped with ultrasonic motor to provide very fast and virtually silent autofocus. Learn more|
|| A||Art series lens designed with a focus on sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power. Delivers high-level artistic expression.|

The lens uses front filters with standard size of 82 mm which are easy to find. However, filters of such size are more expensive and mainly used with professional lenses.
The filter thread does not rotate during focusing which allows convenient use of different types of filters (including but not limited to polarizing and gradient).
Aspherical elements (ASPH, XA) minimize spherical aberration, astigmatism, coma and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.
Low dispersion elements (AD, ED, LD, HLD, SD, UD etc) and fluorite elements minimize chromatic aberrations and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.
Versions of the lens for Canon EF, Nikon F and Sigma SA mounts feature optical image stabilizer.
The image stabilizer does not have any specialized mode of operation and is not capable of automatic detection of panning.
