Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II Lens
Utilising Sony's latest lens technology, the Sony Fe 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II Lens brings stunning resolution and exquisite bokeh together in the world's lightest, large aperture G Master telephoto lens. Thanks to the XD linear motors and magnesium alloy barrel components results in this lens weighing only 1,045 grams, 29% lighter than the previous model.
Unprecedented image quality
Image quality is superb throughout the zoom range at all focusing distances. Two aspherical elements, one an XA (extreme aspherical) type, ensure high resolution throughout the image area. Two ED (extra-low dispersion) glass elements, two Super ED glass elements, and one ED aspherical element minimise chromatic aberration, while Sony’s Nano AR Coating II subdues flare and ghosting. High-performance 1.4x and 2x teleconverters are available.
Exquisite G Master bokeh
Beautiful G Master bokeh is achieved through advanced optical design, an F2.8 aperture, and a new 11-blade aperture unit. An XA element manufactured to 0.01-micron surface precision suppresses onion ring bokeh, and the new aperture unit helps to deliver natural circular bokeh. Close-up bokeh is superb too, with a minimum focusing distance of just 0.4 meters (1.32 ft) at 70mm and 0.82 meters (2.69 ft) at 200mm.
Fast, precise AF supports creative shooting
Four of Sony’s original XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors deliver high thrust efficiency that boosts AF speed by up to 4x compared to the previous model. When tracking an approaching short-distance runner, for example, tracking while zooming is improved by approx. 30% compared to the previous model, greatly increasing the chances of getting the shot.
Professional movie capability
The latest lens technology reduces focus breathing, focus shift when zooming, and axis shift when zooming. XD Linear Motors and a new aperture drive unit contribute to quiet operation. This lens even has independent control rings for focus, zoom, and iris, with a click on/off switch for the aperture ring. Sony’s Linear Response MF feature ensures responsive, direct manual focus control.
Professional control and reliability
Flexible focus control is provided by features such as Full-time DMF, Linear Response MF, and a focus range limiter. An aperture ring with switchable clicks and an iris lock provides extra exposure control. MODE 1, MODE 2, and MODE 3 optical image stabilisation ensure sharp images, and a dust and moisture resistant design plus fluorine-coated front element maximise reliability in tough environments.
