Product Highlights

    Impeccable Sony G Lens design

    The full–frame E–mount FE 70–300mm F4.5 – 5.6 G OSS telephoto zoom lens features a state–of–the–art optical design including four aspherical glass elements, two ED (Extra–low Dispersion) glass elements and Sony’s Nano AR coating, which all work together to effectively suppress spherical aberration, distortion, and chromatic aberration. Together with Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization, ensures beautiful high–resolution results for both still and video shooting.

Details from Sony

    Full–frame 70–300mm G Series F4.5–5.6 G Telephoto zoom

    Sony's G–Series lenses are designed for maximum descriptive power, maintaining excellent peripheral light characteristics and maximizing contrast even at the edges of the frame. The SEL70300G offers high zoom and magnification for full–frame E–mount cameras equivalent to 70–300mm F4.5–5.6. In addition, when mounted to APS C cameras, the focal range can reach 105–450mm offering reach beyond previously available E–mount lenses.

    Nano AR Coating with nano–precision structure

    Sony’s original Nano AR Coating technology coats the lens in a precisely organized regular nano–structure. This allows accurate light transmission effectively suppressing reflections that can cause flare and ghosting. The result is a notable improvement in clarity, contrast, and overall image quality from edge to edge.

    Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization

    The most difficult part of creating gorgeous images is keeping the lens and camera stable throughout the shutter release. Built–in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization helps to reduce camera shake, particularly in telephoto, close–up, and low–light situations where camera shake is most likely to affect image quality. A convenient on/off switch – on the lens itself – can be used to control internal image stabilization which speeds up operation as there is no need to access the camera menu.

    Class–leading close–up focusing capability

    The SEL70300G telephoto zoom lens features a minimum focusing distance of less than 3 feet (0.9m) and a maximum magnification of 0.31x. This makes it an ideal choice for tele–macro photography. This outstanding close–up performance also factors into the lens’ excellent corner–to–corner sharpness.

    9–blade circular aperture

    The 9–blade circular aperture forms a nearly perfect circle to create a pleasing and beautifully round background defocus or bokeh effect, especially when the lens is wide open.

    2x ED (Extra–low Dispersion) glass elements

    As focal lengths get longer, lenses built with conventional optical glass have difficulties with chromatic aberration, and as a result images suffer from lower contrast, lower color quality, and lower resolution. To counter such problems, 2x ED glass elements are included in the SEL70300G. It dramatically improves chromatic aberration at telephoto ranges, and provides superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings

    4x Aspherical elements control spherical aberration and coma

    The SEL70300G has an innovative optical design to achieve clear, high–quality images by effectively minimizing distortion and chromatic aberration. A double–gauss configuration effectively suppresses field curvature and distortion, while a four precisely placed aspherical element control spherical aberration and coma for excellent optical characteristics right out to the image periphery. An aspherical element in a new optical design that controls all types of aberration (spherical, coma, distortion), rendering the subject with superior sharpness.

    Sophisticated, solid and reliable

    Deliver outstanding operability and reliability in a design that resists the intrusion of dust and moisture which helps to ensure reliable operation in harsh outdoor conditions. Designed for reliability in a wide range of environments, the metal mount adds a sophisticated feel as well as solid durability.

    Linear actuator achieve fast, smooth, quiet autofocus

    A linear actuator and an inner focus mechanism are used for focus drive, resulting in fast, smooth, quiet focus operation. Lens noise pickup can be a problem when shooting movies, but with this lens operation is so smooth and quiet that autofocus can be used for shooting movies as well as stills.

    Enhanced operability w/ direct control

    The SEL70300G features convenient direct buttons and switches to enhance the ease and operability. These include a focus hold button, focus mode switch, focus range limiter, Optical SteadyShot switch and zoom lock switch.
