Sony FE 70-200mm F4 Macro G OSS II Full-Frame Compact Telephoto Zoom Lens

Spectacular G Lens rendering and corner to corner resolution

Excellent corner-to-corner resolution and contrast throughout the zoom range are achieved by combining AA (advanced aspherical) and aspherical lens elements. Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements and one Super ED element suppress chromatic aberration and color bleeding for revealing sharpness. Exquisite full-frame bokeh is enhanced by a circular 9-blade aperture mechanism and optimized spherical aberration.

Eye-opening close-up performance with half macro (0.5x) at all focal lengths

This is the world's first zoom lens in its class to offer half-macro capability1 throughout the zoom range. Minimum focusing distance is 10-1/4 in. (0.26 m) at the wide end and 16-1/2 in. (0.42 m) at the telephoto end of the zoom range, with a maximum magnification of 0.5x throughout. New levels of zoom close-up capability offer unprecedented versatility and freedom for shooting stills as well as movies.

Fast, precise, quiet autofocus and tracking matches high-speed cameras

Four of Sony's original high-thrust XD linear motors work in conjunction with precision floating focus groups to achieve extremely fast, accurate focus drive. Thrust efficiency has been dramatically improved, resulting in up to approximately a 20% increase in autofocus speed throughout the entire zoom range when shooting stills. The speed potential of high-performance α series cameras is fully realized. Focus tracking continues uninterrupted even while zooming, ensuring that important moments of the action won't be lost.

Optimized for refined movie performance and imagery

Linear Response MF ensures that manual focus responds directly and linearly to subtle control. The breathing compensation function provided in compatible α series cameras is fully supported, reducing unwanted image shifts while focusing. Built-in optical image stabilization can work in conjunction with the in-body stabilization in compatible α series cameras to provide extremely smooth, stable handheld footage.

Top-class performance with teleconverters – for extended reach and macro

The FE 70-200mm F4 Macro G OSS II is fully compatible with Sony's 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters. In addition to increasing maximum focal length, the 2.0x teleconverter make it possible to shoot life-size 1:1 macro at all focal lengths for new creative potential. Attached with the 1.4x teleconverter, it can shoot max. 0.7x macro at all focal lengths. And because the working distance does not change with the teleconverter attached, you can move in close to the subject to capture truly impressive images.

Compact, lightweight, mobile, reliable, and easy to use

This innovative lens offers a rare blend of performance and compact mobility. It is 3/1/4 in. (82.2 mm) in diameter by (5-7/8 in. (149 mm) in length at the wide end of the zoom range and weighs approximately 28.1 oz. (794 g). An extending lens design was chosen to maximize portability, and a zoom lock switch is provided to prevent unwanted lens extension during transportation.

Versatile high-performance 70-200 mm telephoto/macro zoom

An extremely useful telephoto zoom range of 70-200mm makes it easy to capture a range of distant subjects with outstanding clarity and contrast. The FE 70-200mm F4 Macro G OSS II is a great choice for movies as well as stills. Its constant F4 maximum aperture keeps exposure constant during zooms while recording movie footage.

Outstanding image quality at all focal lengths

Precision AA (advanced aspherical) and aspherical lens elements, three ED glass elements, and Super ED glass work together in an advanced optical design to deliver excellent corner-to-corner resolution and contrast throughout the 70-200mm telephoto zoom range. Image quality is uniformly superb at all focal lengths.

Superb sharpness, clarity, color, and bokeh in one lens

State-of-the-art optics deliver stunning sharpness, clarity, color, and contrast, while exquisitely smooth full-frame bokeh is enhanced by a circular 9-blade aperture mechanism and carefully optimized spherical aberration. An ideally coordinated blend of resolution and bokeh contributes to deep, dimensional images.

Convenient, direct creative control of lens functions

In addition to 2-position AF/MF and OSS ON/OFF switches, 3-position switches are provided for focus range limit and image stabilization mode selection. A separate switch turns Full Time DMF OFF or ON so that manual focus can be instantly engaged by simply rotating the focus ring when shooting in the AF-C mode.

Linear Response MF for precise, repeatable manual focus control

Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise enough for rack focus effects when shooting movies. This feature also works effectively with the AF Assist function in the latest alpha cameras, giving creators enhanced artistic control.

Front fluorine coating repels fingerprints, dust, water and oil

The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants or fingerprints that do become attached to the lens surface.

Dust and moisture-resistant design for reliability in challenging conditions

An updated dust and moisture-resistant design provides extra reliability for outdoor use in challenging conditions. Silicon seals around buttons and switches and a rubber gasket around the lens mount greatly reduce the likelihood of dust and moisture incursion.

Petal-shaped, bayonet mount lens hood ALC-SH176 supplied

Round-shaped, bayonet mount lens hood ALC-SH176 is supplied, and also available separately.
