70-200mm f/2.8 GM FE OSS Lens
Portrait to Telephoto Length Zoom Lens
The FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS from Sony is a versatile portrait to telephoto length zoom lens designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras, however it is also compatible with APS-C models where it will provide a 105-300mm equivalent focal length. With a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 and the inclusion of OSS (Optical SteadyShot) image stabilization it is well-suited to handheld shooting even at slower shutter speeds, and offers precise control over focus placement. A rounded 11-blade diaphragm produces a pleasing bokeh quality in out of focus areas. As part of Sony's G Master series it is designed to produce exceptional imagery.
Optically the lens features three aspherical elements, including one XA (extreme aspherical) element and six extra-low dispersion elements to reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range for sharp, clear, images. A Nano AR coating has also been applied to control ghosting and lens flare, and the front element uses a further fluorine coating for protection against marks and smudges.
It is also possible to use the stabilization system combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur. An OSS Mode switch lets you choose between Mode 1 for general image stabilization that is suited to most types of shooting or Mode 2 that is specifically intended to be used with panning movements.
Autofocus is fast, precise and quiet, thanks to a dual linear motor actuator autofocus system which operates the rear groups and a SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) to control the front groups. A focus hold button, AF/MF switch, and focus range limiter make handling this lens even more intuitive, and the included removable tripod collar has a rotating design to make switching between horizontal and vertical shooting positions simple. It is also dust and moisture-sealed.
