Finished with a Super Multi-Layer Coating to reduce flare and ghosting, the 17-70 mm delivers sharp and high contrast results even in backlit conditions. The included tulip shaped lens hood also helps assist with avoiding flare. Sigma USB Dock compatible The 17-70 mm is compatible with the Sigma USB Dock (sold separately), which enables you to update the lens firmware and adjust parameters such as focus.
