$26,000 can buy you a lot of things; a new car being one of them. You knew that. We knew that. But what neither of us knew was that that tidy sum could be required for a single telephoto zoom lens.

Sigma’s 200-500mm f/2.8 APO EX DG Ultra-Telephoto zoom lens stands out not only with that price tag, but also for being the first large-aperture ultra-telephoto lens to have an F2.8 aperture at 500mm. This means a dizzying array of options for any photographer, especially one who wants to capture fast moving subjects or objects. The SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass and three ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements mean you’ll have excellent correction for all type of aberrations. A built-in battery is used to power the zooming and autofocus, while the super multi-layer coating reduces flare and ghosting. [Purchase]
