G Master design and technology in a new constant F2.8 telephoto zoom that offers unsurpassed rendering, blazing AF, and extraordinary image stabilization performance. The new Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS E-Mount NEX Camera Lens offers extremely high rendering, AF performance and image stabilization, making it a versatile choice for shooting wildlife, sports, weddings and a variety of other events and locations. A popular telephoto zoom focal length featuring a bright constant maximum aperture portrait-length to telephoto perspectives and is designed for E-mount mirrorless cameras. Characterized by both its fast f/2.8 maximum aperture and inclusion of OSS (Optical SteadyShot) image stabilization, this lens is ideally-suited for handheld shooting of distant and fast-moving subjects. The flagship telephoto zoom model delivers extraordinary sharpness and clarity throughout the entirety of its zoom range thanks to its three advanced lens elements including XA, Super ED and ED glass components, as well as its Nano AR coating.

The optical design incorporates a trio of aspherical elements, including one XA (extreme aspherical) element, and six extra-low dispersion elements to minimize spherical and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range that contributes to an impressive minimum focusing distance of merely 0.96m and ensures AF performance is optimized during both still and video shooting. The lens includes a SSM (Super Sonic Motor) plus dual linear motors that work together to move large lens elements quickly - a task that requires a high level of drive control and ensures focus accuracy. The new model also has built in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for capturing sharp, blur-free subjects at all focal lengths and a rotating tripod mount that allows the camera to be quickly removed from a connected tripod as needed. The 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens is dust and moisture resistant with an additional fluorine coating added to the front lens. It also has a focus hold button as well as a focal range limiter.

Features:
  • An F2.8 telephoto zoom like no other: The most advanced technology available has been applied in the G Master series, further refining acclaimed Sony G Lens performance. This model combines refined G Lens bokeh with new levels of resolution in an outstanding constant F2.8 telephoto zoom that offers unsurpassed rendering, blazing AF, and extraordinary image stabilization performance.
  • Extraordinary detail and bokeh in one lens: Specifically designed to resolve spatial frequencies with excellent contrast, this lens includes three aspherical elements, including one double-sided and one newly developed XA (extreme aspherical) element with 0.01 micron surface precision, to effectively control aberration for astonishing resolution plus glorious bokeh.
  • Natural images without spurious color: Chromatic aberration that can be a problem in telephoto lenses is thoroughly suppressed by the use of four ED (Extra-low-Dispersion) glass elements and two Super ED glass elements. Color bleeding is banished so the subject can be captured with maximum sharpness.
  • Class-leading close-up performance: Class-leading close-up performance with a minimum focusing distance of 0.96m and 0.25x maximum magnification is ideal for portraits, telephoto macro, and more. Contributing refinements include ED glass elements and a floating focus mechanism to control aberration that can be problematic in close-up applications.
  • Fast AF optimized for stills and video: Two heavy focus groups are rapidly and precisely positioned by separate actuators: a powerful ring SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) actuator for the front group, and a double linear motor actuator for the rear group. Improved positioning precision works with real-time feedback from multiple position sensors to allow the body’s AF system to operate at full capacity.
  • Further refinements for spot-on movie AF: The focusing system’s double linear motor takes on the vital role of providing “wobbling” actuation for the AF contrast detection system when shooting video. An optical design that effectively minimizes focus breathing plus quiet mechanical operation further adds to focusing performance that is ideal for movies as well as stills.
  • Operation and reliability optimized for fieldwork: Rigid construction with constant lens length during focusing and zooming contribute to excellent handling in the widest range of shooting situations. Focus hold buttons 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.
  • 11 blades for luscious bokeh: Sony’s circular aperture design has traditionally employed up to 9 blades, but this lens incorporates an 11-blade circular aperture that takes bokeh quality to new levels of smooth beauty with natural looking highlights.
  • Outstanding clarity and contrast: Advanced Nano AR Coating technology produces a lens coating with a precisely defined regular nano-structure that effectively suppresses reflections that can cause flare and ghosting, for notable improvements in clarity, contrast, and overall image quality.

  • Removable rotating tripod mount: This versatile lens tripod mount allows the camera to be quickly removed from the tripod in shooting situations that require a rapid handheld response. It also features a revolving mechanism that allows quick changeover between landscape and portrait orientation. A lock mechanism prevents accidental detachment. 
  • Stabilized for sharp, blur-free images: High-performance image stabilization is built right into the lens for sharp, blur-free images with a wide range of subjects. The heavy stabilization lens is driven by a linear motor for fast, precise stabilization. 5-axis image stabilization becomes available when used with α series bodies that feature built-in image stabilization.
  • Stable even when panning: To provide the greatest possible benefit from the built-in image stabilization system in the widest range of shooting situations, the SEL70200GM features switchable MODE 2 stabilization that allows image stabilization to be used with panned shots for greater clarity and impact.
  • High reliability in harsh conditions: A sealed dust and moisture resistant design and fluorine front element coating provide extra protection to ensure reliable operation in challenging environments.

G. from Mesa, AZ on March 12, 2017:
This a a beautiful, but heavy, hunk o' glass! It finds focus reasonably quickly and precisely, without a hunting, and is pin-sharp. I shouldn't have been, but I was surprised by its weight, which I suppose went into the pricing calculations for this thing--it's still probably fewer $$ per pound than my other Sony lenses, though. My only real complaint is that this lens was announced a year ago, and it took me this long to finally get my hands on one. Even considering the natural disaster in Japan that slowed all manufacturing in the region to a crawl, a year is too long to go without a reasonable supply of a new product available in the market, especially since Sony offered very few updates in the interim.

Robert F. from Pleasantville, Somewhere on April 21, 2017:
Sharp lens, quality and build are very good. A bit on the heavy side but the images it produces are worth the extra weight. I love the way the collar works.
