Rate & Review

The Sony's 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G Alpha A-Mount Telephoto Zoom Lens covers an extremely wide telephoto range with ample brightness that could take you from an elegant 70mm portrait to a stunning 400mm wildlife shot in an instant without having to change lenses and potentially miss a great shot. Two ED glass elements delivering excellent sharpness and contrast right out to the edges of the image at all focal lengths.

  • Uncommonly fast aperture - The f/4-5.6 aperture enables shooting at higher shutter speeds to freeze sports action.
  • G Series Optical Performance - 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.
  • Superb Minimum Focusing Distance - With the ability to focus as closely as 5 feet (1.5m), this telephoto lens also lets you move in for dramatic shots of people, natural subjects and close-up details.
  • Three Focus Hold Buttons - The lens enables to you firmly lock in focus for creative control. Focus range limiter can be set to speed auto-focus response. Focus Hold also enables image preview with the α900 D-SLR.
  • Internal Focusing - Focus is accomplished by moving an internal element group, so focus is faster.
  • Works with Optional Teleconverters - Compatible with optional Sony SAL14TC (1.4x) which extends focal length to 560mm (35mm equivalent when used with APS-C format cameras: 840mm) and SAL20TC (2.0x) teleconverters which extends focal length to 800mm (35mm equivalent when used with APS-C format cameras: 1200mm). Teleconverters are compatible with manual focus only.
  • Super Telephoto Zoom - This superb 70-400mm zoom lens is an excellent choice for a wide range of medium to long-distance telephoto applications. (35mm equivalent when used with APS-C format cameras: 105-600mm.)
  • SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) - SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) is supremely responsive: faster, smoother, quieter focusing.
  • 0.27x maximum magnification - 0.27x maximum magnification.
  • Smooth Manual Focusing - An easy-grip focus ring on the lens barrel gives you a solid "hands-on" feel in manual focusing.
  • Circular Aperture - Because the aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect. The lens features nine aperture blades.
  • Supplied accessories - Supplied accessories. Carrying case, lens caps and petal shaped lens hood.
  • Superb flexibility - The 5.7x zoom range goes all the way from 70mm, suitable for portraits and other medium-angle shots, to a super-telephoto 400mm.
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) - Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements minimize chromatic aberration for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.
  • In-Camera Image Stabilization - Works with the SteadyShot® image stabilization built into Sony α D-SLRs.
  • Multi-Element Design - The SAL-70400G incorporates 18 elements in 12 groups for high optical precision from the center of the image all the way to the corners.
  • Auto Clutch - For reliable operation, the manual focus ring does not rotate in auto-focus mode.
