FE 300mm F/2.8 GM OSS
Fast Telephoto Prime Lens
Providing the speed and reach many pros are looking for when photographing the world's biggest events, the Sony FE 300mm f/2.8 GM OSS is a fast telephoto prime characterized by an impressively lightweight, portable design.
The 300mm f/2.8 design excels for photographing indoor sporting events as well as close-range events, journalism, and even wildlife subjects. The comfortable focal length helps capture full-length shots of distant subjects and the bright f/2.8 maximum aperture enables isolating subjects using shallow depth of field.
As part of Sony's esteemed G Master series, this lens is designed to achieve a balance of impressive resolution and sharpness along with distinctive and pleasing bokeh.
A dual XD (Extreme Dynamic) Linear Motor System quietly and quickly focuses on fast-moving subjects while shooting at high speeds. High-precision XD motor system is also complemented by updated AF algorithms for improved responsiveness and quieter operation, further benefitting sports and wildlife applications.
Measuring about 3.2 lb without the tripod mount, this 300mm f/2.8 has a truly lightweight design that suits handheld shooting applications and benefits those carrying multiple lenses and camera setups at an event. Compared to the FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS, this lens is around 50% lighter and 43% smaller.
The weight is distributed evenly across the 10.4"-long lens body, meaning handling is natural and smooth when shooting handheld or atop a monopod or tripod. This design is based on proven concepts from the FE 400mm f/2.8 and FE 600mm f/4 GM lenses.
