Sony FE 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G OSS E-mount Lens FEATURES

The FE 70-300mm f/4.5-F5.6 G OSS zoom lens represents the first Sony E-mount lens to reach a 300mm focal length, featuring high resolution and excellent overall optical performance throughout the entirety of its range. 

As Sony's longest reaching E-mount lens to date, the new FE 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G OSS telephoto zoom lens (model SEL70300G) features a state-of-the-art optical design, including four aspherical glass elements, two ED (extraa-low Dispersion) glass elements, and Sony's Nano AR coating, which all work together to effectively suppress spherical aberration, distortion, and chromatic aberration. This ensures beautiful high-resolution results for both still and video shooting.

The new telephoto zoom lens also features class-leading close-up performance, with a minimum focusing distance of less than 3 feet (0.9m) and a maximum magnification of 0.31x, making it an ideal choice for tele-macro photography. This outstanding close-up performance also factors into the lens' excellent corner-to-corner sharpness.

The versatile zoom lens includes built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation that helps to reduce camera shake, making it easier to capture clear images when shooting handheld. Additionally, the new SEL70300G model has a linear actuator that allows it to achieve fast, smooth, and quiet autofocus, and is also dust and moisture resistant to ensure reliable operation in harsh outdoor conditions.

Full Details

Extended range

Extended 70-300mm range in an FE zoom

The first E-mount zoom to cover a 70mm to 300mm range is a versatile image-making tool that can handle a wide range of subjects, from portraits and scenery to sports and nature. On an APS-C the telephoto end of the range provides a 450mm equivalent focal length for serious super-telephoto photography.

High resolving lens

High resolution at any focal length

Four aspherical elements and two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements work with Sony’s Nano AR Coating to ensure that all forms of optical aberration are effectively suppressed for superb corner-to-corner resolution. The same design also contributes to the beautiful background bokeh that is an important part of G Lens appeal.

Capture macro type close-ups

Class-leading close-up performance

With a minimum focus distance of just 0.9-meter and maximum magnification of 0.31x, this versatile zoom lens lets you get extra close to capture new details and perspectives that can add immeasurably to your creative capabilities. In one lens you have high-performance medium to super telephoto zoom as well as telephoto macro capability.

Optical stabilisation

Sharp, clear handheld captures

Built in Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation minimises the effects of camera shake when shooting handheld, making it easier to capture crisp, clear images that realise the lens’s full potential. Optical Steadyshot is effective at all focal lengths, and significantly increases your opportunities for great shots even in low-light conditions.

Weather sealed construction

Reliable in challenging conditions

A sealed dust and moisture resistant design provides extra protection and ensures reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.** Although the design is dust and moisture resistant, absolute protection from dust and moisture is not guaranteed.

Capture fast moving subjects

Snappy, spot-on focus

The advanced actuator maximises autofocus speed and precision with the widest possible range of subjects and shooting situations. Focus operation is smooth and quiet too, making it an advantage for movies as well as stills.

Lens barrel controls

Operation optimised for versatile control

Plenty of on-lens control is provided for versatile shooting in a wide range of situations. A focus-mode switch lets you select manual or auto focus on the fly, a focus-hold button can hold the focus point even during continuous AF operation, and a focus-range limiter switch can be used to preset a focusing distance range for maximum AF speed.
