A stunning 9-blade rounded diaphragm ensures that the lens creates beautiful bokeh in the out of focus parts of the shot that separates your subject from the background when shooting with a shallow depth-of-field. The lens has an aperture range of f/4-5.6 that works together with the massive magnification to exaggerate your depth of focus.

Controlled Lens Flare and Ghosting
The SIGMA 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM lens has a Super Mult-Layer Coating that helps boost contrast and keep images sharp even when shooting towards strong light sources. This allows you to shoot backlit images and video with confidence.
