Sigma has shared teasers on its social media pages for the 70-200mm F2.8 DG DN OS lens it announced about three weeks ago, indicating that it is “coming soon”. The lens will be available for L-mount and E-mount bodies and is being marketed as a sports lens.
Pictures suggest the new lens will have a manual aperture ring, MF/AF focus switch, a custom function button, a focus limiter and a tripod foot with integrated Arca Swiss-compatible plate.
We know from Sigma’s announced specs that the lens comprises 20 elements in 15 groups, including six FLD (ultra-low dispersion), two SLD (special low dispersion) and three aspherical elements. The L-mount version will weigh just a few grams more but measures a couple of millimeters shorter than the E-mount version, owing to differences in lens mount; the L-mount is 1345g and 90.6mm x 205mm, and the E-mount is 1335g and 90.6mm x 207mm.
Sigma previously announced that the lens should be available in December 2023.
