Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens

The Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens represents another step forward in photographic technology. This G Master 35mm, full-frame, telephoto zoom lens is a great choice for professional photographers who require the best optical performance. A standard zoom lens is a lens in which the focal length varies. A zoom lens is also one that maintains focus even with focal length of the subject-matter changes. Zoom lenses provide the user with a convenient, go-to lens of variable focal length. The G Master design combines extraordinary sharpness and smooth Bokeh in one lens. It is not easy to achieve spatial frequency of 50 lines pairs per millimeter at a lens's widest aperture and produce smooth bokeh at the same time, but that is Sony's baseline for G Master design. Unprecedented resolution and other demanding design parameters yield outstanding reproduction of the most detailed subjects and scenes.

Constant f/2.8 Maximum Aperture

Shooting in low-light situations is always challenging, but the lens' constant f/2.8 maximum aperture ensures that you’ll get great looking pictures in any light and at any zoom range. You won’t have to worry about readjusting exposure settings, either, as this lens maintains its settings as you zoom in and out.

Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization

High-performance image stabilization is built right into the lens for sharp, blur-free images with a wide range of subjects. The heavy stabilization lens is driven by a linear motor for fast, precise stabilization. 5-axis image stabilization becomes available when used with α series bodies that feature built-in image stabilization. To provide the greatest possible benefit from the built-in image stabilization system in the widest range of shooting situations, the features switchable MODE 2 stabilization allows image stabilization to be used with panned shots for greater clarity and impact.

Extreme Aspherical (XA) Lens Element

Newly developed XA technology helps insure that your photos will maintain beautiful corner-to-corner resolution regardless of how much you move through the zoom range. It also helps eliminate chromatic aberration so your photos always have the most vibrant colors possible. Another advantage of XA technology is the smooth, soft bokeh is provides. The harsh rings that can appear in out-of-focus light sources are eliminated by the FE 70-200mm, providing you with even more artistic possibilities.

Extra Low Dispersion (ED) Glass Elements

The 4 separate ED glass elements and 2 separate Super ED glass elements that are built into the lens body work in conjunction with the XA lens element to further reduce chromatic aberrations. These elements reduce axial chromatic aberration without reducing resolution so your pictures will have a stunning level of texture and detail without sacrificing vibrant, lifelike colors.

Advanced Nano Anti-Reflective Coating

Sony’s advanced Nano Anti-Reflective coating that reduces the amount of light that’s reflected by the lens and helps reduce lens flare and image ghosting. By reducing the amount of reflected light, this coating improves clarity, contrast, and overall image quality as well.

Fast AF

Two heavy focus groups are rapidly and precisely positioned by separate actuators: a powerful ring SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) actuator for the front group, and a double linear motor actuator for the rear group. Improved positioning precision works with real-time feedback from multiple position sensors to allow the body’s AF system to operate at full capacity.

11-Blade Circular Aperture

Sony’s circular aperture design has traditionally employed up to 9 blades, but this lens incorporates an 11-blade circular aperture that takes bokeh quality to new levels of smooth beauty with natural looking highlights.

Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens for Alpha DSLR Cameras

Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens SKU: SEL70200GM

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight versatile lens This is my number one go to lens. I have used it for many years and it keeps on giving me the quality images for my needs. I like that it is small an compact and has a good Bokeh on images. Color is correct and there is little I need to do in Lightroom afterwards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tried and tested Received it used it for a few shots. Great lens specs except for the weight. Nice pics but the weight of it is over 4lbs! Hard sell even at the cheaper price and nice picture results, the weight makes this V1 lens hard to travel witth. If you are on a budget and don’t mind the weight, this lens is good. I decided to go for the V2 since I plan to use this on multiple occasions and travel with it a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic lense of it's era This lense I will easily say is a 5star lense of it's era. But if I were to say if it came out now in the same way, you can see it's aging. The quality and use of this lense is truly magnificent but it has 2 main quirks that have been addressed in the new model 2 that came out. #1 weight. This lense is heavy. You can use it as a Tonfa and beat your intruder with it. #2 speed. It is fast but after the 135gm came out the old motors just aren't the same. Aside from that it's an amazing lense that can get you results but if you are going to get a Sony a1 for 30fps this lense can't keep up with those frames.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor protection registration process I bought 70-200mm GM OSS II but during the product protection registration it did not allow me to register this product. Rather only as an older model

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential Lens A solid performer with great versatility. Smooth controls. Sharp and fast focus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful lens for sports content. I bought this lens a few weeks ago to replace my f/4 70-200 and there's just so much to say about this lens. Probably the best piece of glass I've ever used. Its autofocus capabilities are insanely sharp especially when shooting video. I'm a sports photographer and videographer, so shooting fast-moving subjects is an essential part of my job. The autofocus is super quick, especially in low light. Don't even get me started on the bokeh!! it's extravagant. 10/10 lens for sure. The only reason that it isn't a perfect lens is its weight. It's low-key really heavy. paired with my α7III with the battery grip it's about 4-5lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Glass I purchased this lens recently and use it primarily for wildlife and birds in flight. In many cases, I have attached the 1.4 TC. Both with and without the teleconverter the lens produces extremely sharp photos on a consistent basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 70-200 zoom I’ve used After about 3000 shots I really love my lens. I’ve sold all my lens that this GM covers.
