The Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Lens is a full-frame E-mount lens with a short to medium telephoto zoom range with an equivalent focal length of 105-300mm on APS-C cameras. It features a constant aperture of f/4.0 for good low-light capabilities at any focal length and smooth out-of-focus elements. This makes it useful for portraits and sports photography where you want to separate the subject from the background.

For optical quality, the lens features numerous specialized elements, including Super ED and Advanced aspherical elements. These elements reduce the impact of aberrations and distortion for high resolution imaging. The lens is also benefited by the use of Nano AR coatings that reduce the effects of flaring. It even has dust- and moisture-resistant construction for use in less than ideal weather conditions.

During automatic shooting, the 70-200mm lens uses a Dual Linear Motor Autofocus System to achieve quick, precise focus and has focus hold and limiter options for improving performance in certain situations. There is also Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for maintaining sharpness at long focal lengths or long shutter speeds. Additionally, there is a removable tripod collar and a lens hood.

Focus hold button and focus range limiter allow you to hold focus by holding a button and adjust the range that the lens will focus between, limiting the amount of hunting the lens will do
Panning mode adjusts the lens to account for horizontal movement while shooting
Aspherical lenses reduce distortion and spherical aberrations that occur in large aperture lenses
Super Nano AR coating limits glare and flaring, producing an image with good contrast and sharpness
Low-dispersion glass elements, or ED and Super ED, reduces chromatic aberrations, producing a high contrast image with minimal fringing
Rounded 9-blade aperture produces pleasing out-of-focus areas similar to when the lens is wide open even when closed down 2 stops
Aperture range from f/4 to f/22
Uses screw-on filters 72mm in diameter
Minimum focus distance of 39.3" with a maximum magnification of 0.13x

    Great glass, fast focus. Absolutely crystal images. Beautiful Bokeh. Well worth the money. This is a large and heavy lens, but if compared to the Canon & Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 it is a major lightweight. For the price I wish is was also an f/2.8 instead of f/4. That would also add a lot to the weight.

    Zoom is internal so the length of the lens stays the same and there isn't any lens creep since it's all inside the lens body.

    Very glad I have this lens.

    I bought the lens to use it with an a6000 for sports. The lens is physically large, nearly identical in size and weight to the Nikkor 70-200 f4, and as such, it did not balance well on the tiny a6000.Not to mention that tracking is not so great in AF, but I suppose that is not the lens' fault.Because the lens did not work for me for the intended purpose, I returned it.Despite that, I was impressed about the quality of the product, and what little use the lens got inside the house. It was sharp, and I was able to get good photos even at 1/50 s, which means the OSS system works.

    Very impressed with the quality of the lens. Initially had doubts whether to get a f2.8 a-mount or this and I'm glad I went with the native option.

      Comments about Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Lens:

      I shoot a lot of surf photography and mess around with portraits and landscapes. This lens is very versatile and have had success with most situations when im using this puppy.

      Now, i suppose if you can cough up the dough and grab the f/2.8 model, that would be ideal if you shoot indoors a bunch, but with an f stop of 4 and usually shooting on sunny beaches, i dont think its something i need.

      Autofocus has been great. im paired up with my sony a6000 and the continuous autofocus makes the shots come up crystal clear.

      manual mode is great. zoom ring is silky smooth.

      it does weigh more than my other lenses, of course. But i would not deem that as a con.

        Comments about Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Lens:

        As a landscape photographer who has migrated to making images of the 'intimate landscape' this is the perfect lens for my new A7R II camera. Focus is right on and quick.

        I love the weight compared to other 70-200mm zoom lenses that i have been carrying around.

        The lens hood is first rate and designed to really protect from stray sidelight.

        I only wish that Sony would make it in a black finish to match the A7R line of cameras.

              Comments about Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Lens:

              A very nice lens with some excellent features. I have only had the lens for about 3 weeks and used it for landscape and some action shots with my A7MII. Pictures come out crisp and clear. I already had a 24-70 lens that I use all the time and wanted something with a little more focal length when taking images outside and in large areas. Especially like an on off button for image stabilization on the lens and the stop focus button (as i call it) also on the lens to let you manually focus on a certain spot or to stop the camera from constantly changing the auto focus when you have it on. I need a few more months of practice using the lens to really get to know it. Definitely will be a very long term relationship with this lens. I have not had a chance to see how fast the autofocus really is but so far I have not had any issues. I don't hold a timer to my lens just takes shots and see if I like how they come out but so far it seems very quick and responsive. The OSS is excellent with this lens paired up with the A7MII and I get shots that I normally would not get. Have not tried it on my old nex6 yet but sooner or later I will just to see what kind of pictures I get from it.
              All in all an excellent lens with functions that can really help you to get the best shots. I recommend Lightroom if you do not already have it for corrections. Some pictures that I would not normally keep have come out really nice once they are fixed in Lightroom
              The biggest complaints are that it is bright white so when you are in public it stands out like a sore thumb. It is heavy when attached to the camera, but to be expected with the size but if you are looking for a lighter lens do some more homework before you splurge on this lens.

                I bought this and an a6000 to "dip my toes" into this Sony mirrorless system, why ?? Nikon AF wasn't cutting it and my 50 year old eyes weren't cutting it with the optical viewfinders. Sony's focus peaking, magnification, and SURPRISE, auto-focus THAT WORKS more than it doesn't. My Nikkor 70-200 f2.8 was mostly worthless in "hunting" for focus on the D800 compared to what this f4 lens does on the a6000 and a7ii. "it focuses like a mind reader living 2 seconds in the future". Sure you get some duds but it's great. Here is the clincher. I was shopping for a portrait lens for the a7ii (85 or 105 mm).. anyway this Zoom in the studio for portraits around 105mm at f6.3 is BRILLIANT! I love it. I love it as much as my 150 Hasselblad sonar, or 80mm Hasselblad on a "crop sensor" Leaf Aptus back. Brilliant lens, that does what I had been hopping the Nikons would do at nearly twice the price.

                    Comparing it against the Canon 70-200mm IS f/2.8 ii I can't help but wonder why this lens cost so much. It's not as fast as the Canon not is it as sharp as the Canon.

                    It's still a good lens I would recommend buying if you need a native 70-200 on a Sony FE mount.

                        I got great handheld images from day one with this lens and my A7r. I even use it with my 6.44" Sony Experia Z Ultra smartphone and APS-C QX1.

                          coming from Canon 70-200L 2.8 II i was really not expecting to much from this glass but I'll have to say it is pretty impressive and of course a fair bit lighter in weight and money.

                              I rented this lens for a safari in Africa with my A6000. It was the only lens I took. With the crop factor and the 24megapixal sensor, I was able to get fabulous close up photos of leopards, lions, birds, etc. I am selling my Canon equipment and plan to use the proceeds to purchase one of these.

                                Comments about Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Lens:

                                I bought the lens to use it with an a6000 for sports. The lens is physically large, nearly identical in size and weight to the Nikkor 70-200 f4, and as such, it did not balance well on the tiny a6000.Not to mention that tracking is not so great in AF, but I suppose that is not the lens' fault.Because the lens did not work for me for the intended purpose, I returned it.Despite that, I was impressed about the quality of the product, and what little use the lens got inside the house. It was sharp, and I was able to get good photos even at 1/50 s, which means the OSS system works.

                                    I've avoided long lenses most of my life and settled for 135 as about as far as I've needed. But this lens with the A7s is sort of magical. I shoot mostly video, but even with stills I can hand hold and get razor sharp, fantastic images. It's rare to find something that you can find nothing wrong with but this one is in the ballpark. And then you switch the APS-C mode on the A7s and holy moly you have 300mm. For video the only small caveat is that you can't really pull focus. You would think Sony would be sensitive to that and put a defined focus system on their lenses but I think they're mostly appealing to photographers.But from an image standpoint this lens is wonderful.

                                      I just returned from a trip to Europe, my first. This lens was just what I needed for the river cruises. The hand held pictures are very sharp. I would recommend this lens to anyone who has a Sony a7 camera. It is great!
