Spectacular G Lens rendering

Splendid 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 reduce chromatic aberration and colour bleeding for revealing sharpness. Superb full-frame bokeh is enhanced by a circular nine-blade aperture mechanism and optimised spherical aberration.

Eye-opening close-up performance

This is the world's first1 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 realised. 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 stabilisation can work in conjunction with the in-body stabilisation in compatible α series cameras to provide extremely smooth, stable handheld footage.

Top-class performance with teleconverters

The FE 70–200 mm F4 Macro G OSS II is fully compatible with Sony's 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters. As well as 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 (3.25) in diameter by 149.0 mm (5.88) in length at the wide end of the zoom range and weighs 794 grams (28.1 oz.). An extending lens design was chosen to maximise portability and a zoom lock switch is provided to prevent unwanted lens extension during transportation.
