The longest reaching zoom in the Sony E-Mount lineup
The longest zoom lens to be announced in the Sony E-Mount range is this high performance, telephoto FE 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 G OSS. Compatible with Full-Frame E-Mount cameras, this lens has been designed for optical prowess, delivering an exceptional level of detail and image sharpness that is a perfect pairing to the premium quality these cameras produce. This long range zoom lens can also be used on the smaller APS-C format E-Mount cameras, with an enhanced magnification that reaches an equivalent of 450mm - primed for wildlife, sports and action.
Within the lens construction is 4 Aspherical and 2 extra-low dispersion glass elements, which work together with Sony’s Nano AR coating to produce the quality that has been previously outlined, as well as stopping any aberrations and imperfections from hindering your photographs. Edge to edge sharpness is maintained at all apertures, leading to confident shooting without restraint.
The Sony 70-300mm has also been constructed superbly in terms of durability, with a dust and moisture sealed design that allows shooting in harsher environments. Again, this is the freedom and versatility that action photographers require.
Helping you keep a steady hand
To help you to continue producing sharp, blur-free images in all lighting conditions, Sony has included their astounding Optical Stabilisation System in the 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 G lens. Handheld shooting is well and truly supported, awarding you the freedom to move around with the action and find the best spot for capturing the best possible images. Low-light is less of an issue with this lens and you can shoot throughout the day and into the evening without troubling your tripod or monopod.
Fully-equipped to find and maintain focus
Further cementing its place as a sports and wildlife suited tool, the Sony 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 G OSS lens has been equipped with a lightning-fast AF motor, to make sure you never miss the right shot, due to your equipment. Other features that have been put into place to help you lock your subjects into focus with minimal time and effort include a focus hold button and a focus range limiter. All of this functionality is just as useful for shooting videos as it is stills, which is very timely with the release of exciting cameras like the Sony A7S II.
