In addition to an ideal zoom range for nature, sports, and other photography that requires a bit more “reach” that a mid-range zoom provides, this lens offers outstanding corner-to-corner sharpness from 70mm to 200mm in a compact, lightweight unit that is a perfect match for compact full-frame E-mount bodies like the α7 series. Being a G Lens it can also produce smooth, creamy background bokeh.
A popular telephoto zoom focal length featuring a bright constant maximum aperture, the FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS from Sony covers portrait-length to telephoto perspectives and is designed for E-mount mirrorless cameras. Characterized by both its fast f/2.8 maximum aperture and inclusion of OSS (Optical SteadyShot) image stabilization, this lens is ideally-suited for handheld shooting of distant and fast-moving subjects. Equally refined, the optical design incorporates a trio of aspherical elements, including one XA (extreme aspherical) element, and six extra-low dispersion elements to minimize spherical and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range. A Nano AR Coating has been applied to lens elements to reduce flare and ghosting and the front element also features a fluorine coating to guard against smudges and markings from adhering to the glass surface. Pairing a versatile reach and sophisticated design, this professional-quality telephoto zoom is well-suited for a variety of working conditions.
Benefitting performance is an apt autofocus system comprised of a dual linear motor actuator to drive the rear groups and an SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) system to control the front groups for quick, precise, and quiet AF control. Further complementing handling and focus is a dedicated focus hold button, focus range limiter, and an AF/MF switch, and the included tripod collar has a rotating design for easier switching between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations. Additionally, the lens sports a dust- and moisture-resistant design for use in trying environmental conditions.
State-of-the-art optics in a compact, lightweight lens with constant F4 maximum aperture offer the appealing, expressive image quality that the G Lens lineup is famous for.
Optimum sharpness and bokeh in one lens. AA (advanced aspherical) elements, super ED glass, the Nano AR coating, and a 9-blade circular aperture deliver outstanding sharpness with gorgeous background bokeh.
A compact, lightweight design maximizes mobility, internal focusing keeps lens length constant for better handling, and a number of other refinements enhance overall control. A sealed dust and moisture resistant design and fluorine front element coating provide extra protection to ensure reliable operation in challenging environments.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization compensates for camera shake that can blur images when shooting handheld, for sharp, clear telephoto shots and low-light indoor images. The focusing system’s double linear motor takes on the vital role of providing “wobbling” actuation for the AF contrast detection system when shooting video. An optical design that effectively minimizes focus breathing plus quiet mechanical operation further adds to focusing performance that is ideal for movies as well as stills.
