Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS E-Mount Telephoto Zoom Lens
The Sony FE 70-300mm G OSS E-Mount Telephoto Zoom Lens is ideal for shooting subjects from a distance. Its telephoto capabilities make it an ideal lens for nature photography, sports photography, astrophotography and any situation in which you need to capture images of a subject that is far away. It is compatible with any Sony E-Mount camera. While it is specifically made for full-frame cameras, it can be used with APS-C cropped sensor cameras at an equivalent focal length of 105-450mm.
Image Stabilization and Autofocus
Camera shake is no longer an issue with Optical SteadyShot (OSS) image stabilization in the Sony FE 70-300mm G telephoto zoom lens. Internal sensors detect movement and adjust the lens in order to create the clearest images with the least amount of blur due to camera shake during handheld use. This is especially useful during telephoto, close-up and low-light situations, in which blur from camera shake is most likely to occur. Image stabilization can be turned on and off through the convenient use of a switch on the lens itself. This image stabilization combined with a quiet and responsive autofocus feature make for superior video shooting as well as capturing still images.
Glass Elements Minimize Distortion
This versatile lens clearly captures images at a distance with minimal distortion. The technologically-advanced optical design features four aspherical and two extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements. These elements paired with a Nano anti-reflective coating ensure that your photos have minimal spherical aberration, distortion and chromatic aberration. The anti-reflective coating also works to minimize the appearance of flares and ghosting in your images.
Sony’s original Nano Coating technology produces a lens coating that features a precisely defined regular nano-structure that allows accurate light transmission while effectively suppressing reflections that can cause flare and ghosting. The reflection suppression characteristics of the Nano Coating are superior to conventional anti-reflective coatings, including coatings that use an irregular nano-structure, providing a notable improvement in clarity, contrast, and overall image quality.
The SEL70300G telephoto zoom lens also features class-leading close-up performance, with a minimum focusing distance of less than 3 feet (0.9m) and a maximum magnification of 0.31x, making it an ideal choice for tele-macro photography. This outstanding close-up performance also factors into the lens’ excellent corner-to-corner sharpness
Nine-Blade Circular Aperture
An aperture range of f/4.5 to f/29 provides superior control of the depth of field in your photos. The circular nine-blade diaphragm also provides a more natural blurring effect in shorter depth of field images. It also allows for a desirable bokeh effect in which light sources in the background are blurred in short depth of field photos in a way that is pleasing to the eye.
The solid construction of this Sony FE 70-300mm E-Mount telephoto zoom lens ensures that you will be shooting crisp and clear images for a long time. It features a metal barrel exterior with sealed buttons and rings to protect the interior from dust, dirt and moisture.
