1. Introduction

When it comes to classic journalistic lenses with parameters such as 70-200 mm f/2.8 Sigma is a every experienced company. Their first model of that type, the 70-200 mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM APO, appeared already in 1998 with the launch of the entire EX series.

In May 2005 we saw the Sigma 70-200 mm f/2.8 EX APO DG HSM Macro, an instrument optically more complex, with the minimum focusing distance of 1 meter. A bit more than one year later the construction was a bit improved and showed on the market as the Sigma 70–200 mm f/2.8 II EX APO DG Macro HSM.

For the next launch we had to wait till 2010, when Sigma released the stabilized 70–200 mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM. After that date practically all direct rivals showed their new 70-200 mm f/2.8 instruments so Sigma couldn't lag behind in such an important and prestigious category. As a result in September 2018 they announced the launch of a new lens, the Sigma S 70–200 mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM.
