Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Lens

Sony's FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Lens is a powerful E-mount full frame telephoto lens. It offers a APS-C comparable focal length of 105-300mm. Its f/4 maximum aperture is bright and quick, excelling at capturing available light at all focal lengths. The aperture creates a pleasing depth-of-field and ideal for such applications as portraits and sports photography. Sony engineered this lens for superior optical performance including Extra Low Dispersion glass elements and Advanced Aspherical elements, both of which work to combat the effects of distortion and chromatic aberrations. Its Nano Anti-Reflective coating greatly reducing flaring and its construction is reliably moisture-resistant, allowing you to confidently shoot in challenging situations. The Dual Linear Motor Autofocus system yields fast and precise focus everytime. There is even a Focus Range Limiter and Focus Hold Button, which means you can quickly land on the right focus without having to toggle through the entire range. The lens-based SteadyShot optical image stabilization eliminates the effects of camera shake and retains sharpness at longer shutter speeds. This lens creates has a 39.37-inch minimum focusing distance and accepts 72mm filters.

Compact Construction

This optic in a compact, lightweight lens offers constant F4 maximum aperture offer the appealing, expressive image quality that the G Lens lineup is famous for. G Lenses are manufactured to exacting tolerances and individually tested to ensure that each and every unit meets the same high standards of image quality and creative control.

SteadyShot Image Stabilization

Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization compensates for camera shake that can blur images when shooting handheld. Sharp, clear telephoto shots are easier to achieve, and indoor shots in dim lighting can be captured without the need to boost ISO sensitivity and risk increased noise.

Extra Low Dispersion Glass

Sony's Low Dispersion technology is engineered to reduce chromatic aberrations, which becomes more of a problem as focal lengths get longer. It eliminates the tendency of light of different colors to focus to different points at the image plane. This means your images will come out crisp and clear, with less of a chance of defracting light into an unwanted rainbow of colors. Take shots exactly like you want, without any flare-up or blurring.

Nano Anti-Reflective Coating

Nano Crystal Coat eliminates internal lens element reflections, particularly flaring common in ultra-wideangle lenses. Designed with multiple layers of low refractive index coating, the reflection suppression characteristic of the Nano Anti-Reflective Coating is superior to conventional anti-reflective coatings, providing a notable improvement in clarity, contrast, and overall image quality.

Circular Aperture

Precision AA (advanced aspherical) elements, super ED glass, and the Nano coating work together in an advanced optical design to deliver high resolution throughout the entire image at all focal lengths. A nine-blade circular aperture extends the lens’s expressive capabilities by contributing to gorgeous background bokeh with natural highlights.

Dual Linear Motors

Focusing is fast and precise thanks to dual linear motors. The quiet and fluid movement is perfect for shooting movies and fast-paced action, or whenever changing focus quickly and often. The use of an internal focusing group, rather than a moving front lens element, makes for a compact design that works well with accessories like lens hoods and polarizing filters.

Panning Modes

The first image stabilization mode switch in an α lens provides a “panning mode” that allows Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to remain active while panning. This makes it possible to capture dynamic horizontally panned shots while effectively minimizing shake induced blur in other axes.

Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Lens

Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Lens SKU: SEL70200G

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lens, very heavy I enjoy this lens but you should know it is very, very heavy. I bought a device so that I could carry my camera and lends on my belt because of the weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. I'm no professional reviewer, but I can tell you I'm in love with this lens. It lives up to its hype. I'm glad I glad have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible I owned a Sigma 100-400 and wasn’t happy with it until I bought the 70- 200 Sony and am extremely happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mid-range telephoto zoom lens Despite the fact that it opens up to f/4 only, it can handle every situation: portrait, sport, motor sport, landscape. Picture quality and sharpness are on point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lens I really wanted the 2.8 version but it was $1000 more! Wish I got that one though cause I want to use a 2x tele converter. can not be used on this lens .This lens is very nice and good pics!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Early results a bit soft Ore testing is required. I bought this to have a more portable option to the f2.8 but I think it may not be as sharp, but certainly is more affordable.
Date published: 2019-03-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quailty lens This is a perfect mid range zoom lens. It is well constructed and extremely sharp at f11. I only wish that Sony would make a 2x lens extender for the F4 model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great lens I bought this lens in the spring before my 2 week vacation. It worked very well. I am sure there are better lens out there but for the money its a great lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from high quality, very practical. I have used this about 4 times - taken a few hundred shot. It is reliably sharp from f4 to f22. also at low light.

Date published: 2018-05-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the lens as an all around I bought this lens few months before Sony released the 2.8 version. I was not sure I did the right buy but eventually it turned out to be perfect for my need. I used mostly in the day light and for landscape on tripod. I am not looking for fast AF as I use it mostly manual focus. The sharpness is as expected and the colours are the strengths of most Sony lens and camera. To close very satisfied and think twice to buy the 2.8 version as I see that lens for different users.

Date published: 2017-12-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a robust lens Looks like a tank and appears as an competitor alternative. Lens is not pro grade and can't be used as I used my competitors white lens. Focus not working after a impact within the camera bag. Inside it is a plastic lens, cheaply made. A big surprise to me. I googled and many 70-200 f4 and f2.8 users have the same experience. It's a pity that a small steel ring gets bended and fail the focus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impress but lacking a tad This lens is awesome when it's on .... but do to some focus haunting and slow focus I had to knock it down a star
Date published: 2017-08-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous lens for travel While it is true the newer Sony lens is faster, the fact is it is really heavy and the barrel extends. If you travel or do hiking, it is a load to take. The f4 G OSS is simply a wonderful lens and razor sharp at nearly every point. Frankly, the A7'rII I have has such a wonderful low light ability, a faster lens simply is not a priority for me. I can't recommend this lens highly enough.
Date published: 2017-08-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Switching to Sony Been a Nikon user forever - shifting to Sony -The 70-200 and the camera combined feel like they weigh less than the Nikon 70-200 alone. and the clarity/sharpness is right there - Thanks Sony - Now you need a 2x like my nikon and we're really in business!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portrait Lens? Who Knew! In addition to be the obvious telephoto lens it was designed for, finding some creative uses as a portrait tool.
Date published: 2015-03-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from hard to focus in low light Hard to focus in low light is probable more of a problem with my Sony a7. Even when using my BIG Sony flash, its hard to focus in low light because there is no IR Preflash focus assist

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bargain Of My Year I borrowed this lens last summer for a very intensive shoot overseas in Korea for two weeks. It was a life saver. Using the Fe 70-200 F4 G OSS was the same as finding an oasis in the desert. The lens was so light on my Sony A7 so that even with a bum shoulder I always would forget about it until I needed it. Working with it and my 24 to 70 mm F4 lens was a pleasure and I really worked it hard. I shot every day In all kinds of conditions sometimes in really dark places and using the 70 to 200 mm, I shot a lot of interesting photos without a tripod shooting wide open at F4. I made images with that lens at 1/15 of a second handheld and sharp as a razor's edge. I was able to capture the subtle color that lived inside the color photographs that I saw in some very dark places. Buying this lens may be the best deal that I may have made recently. It is small and light and travels well. You can carry it in a jacket pocket or photo vest. And finally - the lens sturdiness is a plus and it is also as sharp as a serpent's tooth. It's a truly great lens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new Lens I took my Sony FE70-200mm F4 G OSS lens on a road trip. The photos I took out the window of my car while the driver was going around 60 miles per hour. I was very happy with how clear and crisp the photos were. I have a Nex 7 camera and the colors were great. I have loved my NEX 7 and find this new lens a great addition. The lens fits well in my hand. The only draw back is the weight when I carry it around. Both photos below were taken while the car was moving at a good speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from an excellent lens I like the 70-200, but rather wait if they make a 70-300 with a similar design

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Lens The Sony FE70-200 F4 G OSS E-mount Zoom Lens is just abnout the best that money can buy. This lens is sharp as a tac and delivers constantly great images.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Optimus Prime If you own an a7R, this is definitely the lens to capture images of sports, birds, portraiture, and videos. It is the only zoom lens that has the razor sharpness to match the high resolution sensor of the a7R; for example, when you take a picture of NASCAR 51, you will be able to discern each and every hair of Justin Allgaier's eyebrows. I have been using this FE 70-200 F4 G since it was first issued by Sony for everything but macrophotography. The color is perfect and there is no distortion. Marvelous landscapes come from closing the aperture down to have foreground to infinity in focus. Attach a polarizing filter and capture rainbow trout swimming in the clear mountain streams. Project the image on a 12 ft screen to see shimmering fish scales. If you are going to attach a zoom lens to the a7R, make it this one; and take spectacular photographs everywhere you go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens This lens provides excellent image quality in a not too big package. It is a great addition to any full frame E-mount kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens One of my favorites. This lens is sharp and has a fast AFS. I highly recommend this lens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb ... as in GOOD Purchased specifically for a safari trip to Africa. It performed flawlessly. I took several thousand pictures and my only complaints had to do with the number of shots of my feet (taken by mistake).
Date published: 2014-12-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from gorgeous lens Beautiful clarity and color throughout the zoom range and all f-stops. Happy with the electronics features also. At f4 with the A7S high sensitivity, able to get amazing low-noise evening/night shots across zoom range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lens This lens is truly amazing, and I highly recommend it for anyone that purchases the nex-7R. It's focus time is quick and the quality is pristine. Nice job again Sony!
