The Sigma APO MACRO 180mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is the first 180mm optically stabilised macro in the world with a reproduction ratio of 11 and a maximum aperture of F2.8. Three special FLD F Low Dispersion glass lenses ensure exceptional correction of chromatic aberrations. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and creates sharp, contrasted images even when fully wide open.
