Benefitting from an enhanced AF algorithm and a newly implemented Nano AR coating, this 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G SSM II Lens from Sony is able to deliver improved performance in a wide range of applications. Offering excellent reach with full-frame A-mount cameras, the lens also uses a variable f/4.5-5.6 aperture to keep weight and size down for added comfort while shooting. Ensuring maximum image quality, the lens features an extra-low dispersion element that helps reduce aberrations and increase contrast throughout the zoom range.
Handling and operation has been improved with a dust and moisture-resistant construction along with the fast and responsive Super Sonic wave AF Motor (SSM) that benefits from a rear focus design. Furthermore, the lens barrel offers a focus hold button and electronic focus range limiter for improved tactile control over certain functions while shooting. Additionally, it offers a minimum focus distance of 3.9' and has a nine-blade circular diaphragm for smooth bokeh.
