Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS Overview

Capture more distant subjects while keeping your kit lightweight with the FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS Lens from Sony. This full-frame lens is designed for use with mirrorless E-mount cameras where it delivers an excellent telephoto zoom range. It also uses a maximum aperture of f/4 to keep size and weight down. Incorporated into the optical design are a series of specialized elements to ensure aberrations are suppressed, this includes two extra-low dispersion elements, one super extra-low dispersion element, two advanced aspherical elements, and one aspherical element. Along with these capabilities, a Nano AR coating will help minimize the appearance of flare and ghosting.

In order to capture fast-moving subjects, the 70-200mm lens uses a dual linear motor system and internal focus mechanism to autofocus. This fast and accurate setup delivers sharp imagery, especially when combined with the built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization. For improved handling, the lens features multiple physical controls, including three focus hold buttons and a focus range limiter. Additionally, the lens has a dust- and moisture-resistant design and comes with a removable, rotating tripod collar for added stability when mounted to a tripod or monopod.

Designed for full-frame E-mount cameras, this 70-200mm zoom covers a versatile telephoto zoom range that is ideal for portraits, action, sports, and more. Also, it can be used on APS-C format cameras where it will provide a 105-300mm equivalent zoom range.
A constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also lends greater control over focus position for shallow depth of field techniques.
Two extra-low dispersion glass elements and one Super ED element are featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
One aspherical element and two Advanced Aspherical (AA) elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
A Nano AR coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
Dual linear motors and an internal focus mechanism enable fast, responsive autofocus and object tracking. The lens can also focus as close as 3.3' for close up imaging.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can also be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
An electronic focus range limiter switch allows you constrain the usable focus range between a set limited range or full for improving focus speed, and three focus hold buttons are also featured to manually stop the autofocus at a specified point.
Dust and weather-sealed construction benefits using the lens in inclement shooting conditions.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
The lens is equipped with a removable and rotating tripod collar for added stability and reducing strain on the camera's lens mount.

question

Is this lens fully compatible and able to shoot full frame (e.g., true 70-200mm) with the Sony alpha 7R body, which I just bought from B and H? It does say FE

question

Will this lens work on the alpha 58?
Asked by: Darren B.
Hi, the Alpha 58 uses A-mount lenses, and the sony Fe 70-200 is an E-mount lens, so I believe you would need an adapter, which Sony sells. Also, the sensor on the A58 is an APSC sensor, as opposed to a full frame sensor, so this lens would actually be closer to a 100-300 focal length because of the smaller sensor in your camera.Sometimes, using an adapter makes some functions on the lens not work .The lens is excellent by the way, but quite large and heavy.I think your best bet is to talk to a Sony representative from the Sony site but I hope I was a bit helpful.I am positive you will need an adapter, these are usually around 300$

question

I didn't see the angle of view listed in the specs! What is it please? I am trying to sort out the best choice of several lenses for the Sony A6000 I'm ordering soon. My current options I'm considering are : Sony E-mount 18 - 200mm f/3.5 - 6.3 B&H # SO1820035QSony E 55 - 210mm f/ 4.5 - 6.3 )SS ( SILVER ) B&H # SO5521045THIS one - that I'm affectionately nick naming BIG WHITEY The Sony 18 - 200mm f/3.5 - 6.3 PZ OSS ALPHA E - mount B&H # SO18200PZor the TAMRON 18-200 mm f/3.5 - 6.3 Di III VC Sony E Mount ( SILVER ) B&H # TA 1820035SB Cost is actually not a consideration in my situation. I have a Once in a Lifetime Opportunity here & I want to make the absolute MOST of it! I want a lens that will serve me - 1 ) As an ARTIST ; I am a Wildlife Artist & I want crisp / sharp / clear reference photos of my subjects . 2) I want to also make a few bucks on those reference Photos to make my equipment pay for itself & earn it's keep! 3) I want the BEST Glass -PERIOD
Asked by: Anonymous
The angle of view on the Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 OSS lens is 34-12 on a full frame sensor, and 22-8 on an APS-C sensor camera such as the A6000. For wildlife photography, I think that this particular lens will out-perform any of the 18-200mm or 55-210mm lenses, as the 70-200 has a constant f/4 aperture as opposed to lenses with variable apertures. You will also have a better telephoto range with this lens, since it will effectively be a 105-300mm lens on a camera with an APS-C sensor. In terms of lenses which are dedicated to Sony E mount systems, this will be the best lens choice.
