Versatile 70–200 mm telephoto/macro zoom
An extremely useful telephoto zoom range of 70–200 mm makes it easy to capture a range of distant subjects with outstanding clarity and contrast. The FE 70–200 mm F4 Macro G OSS II is a great choice for movies as well as stills. Its constant F4 maximum aperture keeps exposure constant during zooms while recording movie footage.
Outstanding quality at all focal lengths
Precision AA (advanced aspherical) and aspherical lens elements, three ED glass elements and Super ED glass work together in an advanced optical design to deliver excellent corner-to-corner resolution and contrast throughout the 70–200 mm telephoto zoom range. Image quality is uniformly superb at all focal lengths.
Superb sharpness and bokeh in one lens
State-of-the-art optics deliver stunning sharpness, clarity, colour and contrast, while exquisitely smooth full-frame bokeh is enhanced by a circular nine-blade aperture mechanism and carefully optimised spherical aberration. An ideally coordinated blend of resolution and bokeh contributes to deep, dimensional images.
Excellent close-up performance
An innovative, superbly balanced optical design achieves half-macro capability throughout the lens's 70–200 mm 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 for unprecedented handling and versatility when shooting stills or movies.
Fast, precise, quiet autofocus
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 about a 20% increase in autofocus speed throughout the entire zoom range when shooting stills. Focus tracking continues uninterrupted even while zooming, ensuring that important moments of the action won't be lost.
Designed for refined movie imagery
A number of this lens's features are tailored to achieving more refined movie imagery. Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually and advanced lens technology reduces focus breathing as well as focus and axial shift when zooming.
No-compromise teleconverter support
Used with the Sony's 2.0x and 1.4x teleconverters, it increases maximum focal length to 400 mm and 280 mm respectively. Also, 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.
Compact, lightweight and mobile
This innovative lens 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.
Convenient creative control
In addition to two-position AF/MF and OSS ON/OFF switches, three-position switches are provided for focus range limit and image stabilisation mode selection. A separate switch turns Full Time DMF OFF or ON so that manual focus can be instantly engaged by simply rotating the focus ring when shooting in the AF-C mode.
Fluorine front element coating
The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels fingerprints, dust, water, oil, and other contaminants, while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants that do become attached to the lens surface.
