SIGMA Canada introduces the new SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras made by Sony (E-mount), Leica, Panasonic and SIGMA (L-Mount). With the levels of optical performance and functionalities essential for full-fledged shooting packed into a lightweight and compact body, the SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary is an ultra-telephoto zoom lens that invites you to take it with you on casual outings.
The state-of-art optical design technology ensures edge-to-edge high-resolution and high-contrast image quality throughout its entire focal range. This new lens achieves high image quality which rivals that of standard zoom lenses such as the SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art, ensuring a perfect match with these lenses while shooting. The level of bokeh and compression effect only achieved by an ultra-telephoto lens provides a fresh perspective to ordinary everyday scenes. This combination of ultra-telephoto images with the excellent mobility of the SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary will open up new ways for you to enjoy ultra-telephoto photography, as well as its possibilities, from everyday snapshots to professional field photography and everything in between.
Whether you are currently considering trying a telephoto lens or already are a telephoto lens connoisseur, the SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary is a “light and enjoyable ultra-telephoto zoom lens” that will provide a great value and a variety of styles to your shooting experience.
The SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary lens has a suggested retail price of $1,299.95 CAD and is expected to begin shipping in July.

SIGMA’s 5th DG DN lens, designed exclusively for full-frame mirrorless cameras
With the optics design specifically for a camera with a short flange back distance, the DG DN series of lenses achieves a supreme combination of optical performance and compactness that could not have been possible with lenses for single-lens reflex cameras. Thanks to the stepping motor system that is optimized for both phase detection AF and contrast AF, the SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary makes shooting with the video or eye-tracking AF very smooth.
SIGMA’s 5th DG DN lens is a long-awaited ultra-telephoto zoom lens. This lens will expand the possibilities of mirrorless camera photography even further.
* Product names | Abbreviations DG and DN indicate that the lens is suitable for full-frame cameras and is designed exclusively for mirrorless (short flange back distance) cameras, respectively.
Uncompromising Image Quality
The lens construction of the SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary comprises 16 groups and 22 elements, with one FLD and four SLDs used for the effective correction of aberrations and distortions. Built on the latest optical design technology and optimized for mirrorless systems, the new lens ensures the same high-resolution image quality all the way to the edges. In addition, it constantly achieves high levels of optical performance and makes the most of its capabilities as a zoom lens in any condition, at every focal length from wide to telephoto, and from close-up shots to telephoto photography.
Furthermore, when paired with SIGMA TELE CONVERTER TC-1411/TC-2011 (sold separately / for L-Mount only), which was newly and exclusively developed for the use with mirrorless cameras, the SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary gives photographers a “super telephoto” angle of view with a focal length of up to 800mm while they enjoy the benefit of the compact system. Plus, AF is effective even with the teleconverter attached.
A full range of functionalities that realizes smooth and easy ultra-telephoto shooting
In addition to a high-speed and smooth AF enabled by the stepping motor optimized to the latest algorithm, the SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary incorporates powerful image stabilization (OS) of four stops* built into the lens. When combined with a camera body with image stabilization built in, the lens corrects for pitch and yaw axis rotations, providing even more powerful image stabilization.
It also features the AFL button to which the user may assign select functions on the camera side, and the focus limiter switch that allows optimizing the AF range according to the purpose of shooting.
By connecting the lens to the SIGMA USB DOCK (sold separately / for L-Mount only), which was newly developed exclusively for the use with mirrorless cameras, users can adjust the amount of focus movement when operating the focus ring by utilizing the SIGMA Optimization Pro software, which allows users to adjust focus in their preferred timing in MF mode.
Furthermore, the SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary supports “Dual action zoom”, which allows photographers to zoom in and out by adjusting the hood, enabling intuitive and quick view angle adjustments, or using the zoom ring.
* Based on CIPA guidelines (Measured in 400mm with a 35mm full-size image sensor)
Lightweight & Compact lens body
SIGMA designed a light and durable ultra-telephoto zoom lens addition to its Contemporary line.
The SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary packs functionalities required for angles of view corresponding to focal lengths of 100-400mm in a compact, lightweight body. It is not merely about weight reduction, but the lens is durable, with careful selections to utilize the right materials in the right place. For instance, magnesium alloy is used for the part where a tripod socket is attached, which needs to be very strong.
To allow for a paring with camera bodies of different sizes, a tripod socket (sold separately) is available. As this helps reduce any strain on the camera body, photographers can shoot long hours without worrying about it. The tripod socket comes with a strap which also helps reduce strain on the mount when carrying the lens around or during transportation.
