70–300mm F4.5–5.6 G SSM (SAL70300G)

Compact and lightweight, the SAL70300G combines extended zoom range with G Lens image quality. A 1.2m minimum focus distance makes it a good close-up performer too.

Full Frame

This 35MM Full Frame lens works with Sony α cameras.

See the difference with G Lens

Renowned for their descriptive power, G Series lenses maintain excellent peripheral light characteristics and maximum contrast even at the edges of the frame.

G Lens performance and quality
Smooth defocusing

Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 9-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.

Circular aperture for smooth bokeh
Refined optical performance

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements provide superior contrast, resolution and colour fidelity throughout the image, even at large aperture settings.

Focus quickly and quietly

A rear focusing mechanism enables reduced minimum focusing distances and fast autofocus response. A built-in SSM (Super Sonicwave Motor) ensures silent operation.
