Extended 70-300mm range in an FE zoom

The first E-mount zoom to cover a 70mm to 300mm range is a versatile image-making tool that can handle a wide range of subjects, from portraits and scenery to sports and nature. On an APS-C the telephoto end of the range provides a 450mm equivalent focal length for serious super-telephoto photography.

High resolution at any focal length

Four aspherical elements and two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements work with Sony’s Nano AR Coating to ensure that all forms of optical aberration are effectively suppressed for superb corner-to-corner resolution. The same design also contributes to the beautiful background bokeh that is an important part of G Lens appeal.
