  • Conclusion: The closest focus distance is 110cm, which enables a maximum magnification factor of 0.22x at the 200mm zoom setting. Focusing is internal, so the front element neither extends nor rotates, making it ideal for use with a circular polariser or other rotation-sensitive filter. The lens has a relatively small 55mm filter thread and comes complete with lens hood.

Sigma 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DC OS HSM: Handling and features After purchasing a DSLR, many people will add a telephoto zoom to their kit bag at some point in time. Priced at £200 with optical stabilisation included, which promises to tame camera shake, this lens is bound to be a popular choice for those looking to extend their zoom range beyond the standard 18-55mm kit lens.
