Product Description

Compact high-resolution telephoto zoom

Our most advanced lens technology comes together in a compact, lightweight 70-200 mm F4 telephoto zoom G Lens™ that delivers outstanding optical and AF performance as well as half-macro capability throughout the zoom range. Impressive handling and mobility make it an excellent choice for a wide range of still and movie applications.

Spectacular G Lens rendering

Excellent corner-to-corner resolution and contrast throughout the zoom range are achieved by combining AA (advanced aspherical) and aspherical lens elements. Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements and one Super ED element suppress chromatic aberration and color bleeding for revealing sharpness. Exquisite full-frame bokeh is enhanced by a circular 9-blade aperture mechanism and optimized spherical aberration.

Eye-opening close-up performance

This is the world's first2 zoom lens in its class to offer half-macro capability1 throughout the zoom range. Minimum focusing distance is 0.26 m at the wide end and 0.42 m at the telephoto end of the zoom range, with a maximum magnification of 0.5x throughout. New levels of zoom close-up capability offer unprecedented versatility and freedom for shooting stills as well as movies.

Fast autofocus matches high-speed bodies

Four of Sony's original high-thrust XD linear motors work in conjunction with precision floating focus groups to achieve extremely fast, accurate focus drive. Thrust efficiency has been dramatically improved, resulting in up to approximately a 20% increase in autofocus speed throughout the entire zoom range when shooting stills. The speed potential of high-performance α series bodies is fully realized. Focus tracking continues uninterrupted even while zooming, ensuring that important moments of the action won't be lost.

Refined movie performance and imagery

Linear Response MF ensures that manual focus responds directly and linearly to subtle control. The breathing compensation function provided in compatible α series bodies is fully supported, reducing unwanted image shifts while focusing. Built-in optical image stabilization can work in conjunction with the in-body stabilization in compatible α series cameras to provide extremely smooth, stable handheld footage.

Top-class performance with teleconverters

The FE 70-200mm F4 Macro G OSS II is fully compatible with Sony's 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters. In addition to increasing maximum focal length, the 2.0x teleconverter make it possible to shoot life-size 1:1 macro at all focal lengths for new creative potential. Attached with the 1.4x teleconverter, it can shoot max. 0.7x macro at all focal lengths. And because the working distance does not change with the teleconverter attached, you can move in close to the subject to capture truly impressive images.

Compact, mobile, reliable, and easy to use

This innovative lens offers a rare blend of performance and compact mobility. It is 82.2 mm (3-1/4 in.) in diameter by 149.0 mm (5-7/8 in.) in length at the wide end of the zoom range and weighs 794 grams (28.1 oz.). An extending lens design was chosen to maximize portability, and a zoom lock switch is provided to prevent unwanted lens extension during transportation.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
