The optical design delivers increased sharpness with a minimum of aberrations, that include an XA element, an aspherical element, two extra-low dispersion aspherical elements, two extra-low dispersion elements, and two Super ED elements.
To assist the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS II Lens in reducing reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and colour the optical design also features Sony's latest Nano AR II Coating.
Natural Images Without Spurious Colour
Chromatic aberration that can be a problem in telephoto lenses, the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS II Lens is thoroughly suppressed by the use of four ED (Extra-low-Dispersion) glass elements and two Super ED glass elements. Colour 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 40cm 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
The Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS II Lens features four XD Linear motors, with two motors driving each of the internal focusing groups. The floating focus design divides the elements into two independently controlled groups for increased responsiveness, for both still and video applications, with speeds up to four times faster than its previous version design. Improved positioning precision works with real-time feedback from multiple position sensors to allow the body's AF system to operate at full capacity.
Outstanding Clarity and Contrast
Sony's latest generation Nano AR II 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.
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 Blade Circular Diagram 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.
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 stabilization lens is driven by a four XD Linear Motors for fast, precise stabilization. 5-axis image stabilization becomes available when used with camera 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 Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS II Lens features switchable MODE 3 stabilization that allows image stabilization to be used with panned shots for greater clarity and impact.
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.
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.
