Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Overview

Boasting exceptional optics, a complete feature set, and outstanding speed in all aspects, the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens easily takes its place as the de facto telephoto zoom for professionals. A member of the G Master series, this 70-200mm delivers high sharpness alongside smooth, clean bokeh and with an absolute minimum of aberrations. This is guaranteed through the use of an XA element, two aspherical elements, four extra-low dispersion elements, and two Super ED elements in the optical design. Furthermore, the lens has a Nano AR Coating that reduces reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color.

Optimized for speed, this lens is equipped with a fast and constant f/2.8 aperture that will be an asset in low-light conditions as well as for creating images with shallow depth of field. Bokeh is made even better by the implementation of an eleven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth out-of-focus areas. Also, there is a double-linear and ring Super Sonic wave Motor system that provides fast, responsive autofocus in both stills and video.

As a top end telephoto zoom, this lens is equipped with a variety of other technologies to assist shooters, including Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for combating camera shake, especially at longer focal lengths. Users will enjoy faster and more intuitive operation with a plethora of physical controls on the lens barrel, including three focus hold buttons, a focus range limiter switch, and both AF/MF and OSS switches. For durability and working in tough conditions, the lens is dust and moisture resistant, and it has a fluorine coating on the front element to resist water and oil.

As part of Sony's esteemed G Master series, this lens is designed to achieve notably high resolution and sharpness through the correction of a wide variety of spherical and chromatic aberrations. Additionally, these lenses feature robust and intuitive-to-handle physical designs to benefit both photography and cine applications.
A popular telephoto zoom designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras, this 70-200mm lens is also compatible with APS-C models where it provides a 105-300mm equivalent focal length range.
A constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also lends greater control over focus position for shallow depth of field techniques.
Of the three aspherical elements incorporated in the lens design, one is an XA element with superior surface precision to effectively reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations from imagery.
Four extra-low dispersion elements and two Super ED elements are featured in the lens design, too, and help to control chromatic aberrations and reduce color fringing for increased clarity and color fidelity.
A Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
An advanced double-linear and ring Super Sonic wave Motor system ensure fast, precise and accurate autofocus in both stills and video.
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 OSS Mode switch lets you choose Mode 1 for general image stabilization that is suited to most types of shooting as well as a Mode 2 setting that is specifically intended to be used with panning movements.
A floating elements system benefits image quality when working at the 3.15' minimum focusing distance with 0.25x magnification.
The lens barrel is equipped with three focus hold buttons and a focus range limiter switch to permit fast, intuitive operation of the lens while shooting.
The front lens element features a fluorine coating to protect against smudges and dust from adhering to the glass surface.
Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions.
A rounded 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
A removable, rotating tripod mount permits quick switching from horizontal to vertical shooting orientations.
The included petal-shaped lens hood helps prevent flaring and has a filter access window for making adjustments to rotating filters such as polarizers and variable NDs.
Compatible with Sony's optional 1.4x and 2x teleconverters, this lens can be easily transformed into a 98-280mm or 140-400mm optic, respectively.

question

This one (G Master) or that one (Sony G F/2.8 OSS II)... I use Sony A7R II and Sony A99! Sony G is an A-Mount, also E-Mount via adapter, but 500 dollars more... I don't know which has better IQ to grap some of those! Pros and cons
Asked by: Gustavo
The Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS E-mount Lens has not yet been release, as it is a new item that was recently announced, and is not yet stated to begin shipping until July 29, 2016. As such, I have yet to see any lens testing from reputable testers to compare the optical quality of the two lenses. The newer Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS E-mount Lens has 11 aperture blades for a more rounded aperture and bokeh (the A-mount lens used 9 blades), and also has more optical elements designed for more correction from aberration and to focus all light at a single point to increase sharpness, and also has a shorter minimum focus distance. The above are the comparisons from the lens' specifications released by Sony. Comparing the MTF chart, the newer Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS E-mount Lens seems slightly sharper, especially when viewing the corner/edge performance. However, for a comparison in real-world testing, you would have to wait until the lens is released and available for testing.I will add one point; if you are using both A-mount and E-mount cameras, and you only want to have to purchase one lens, then the Sony 70-200mm F2.8 G SSM II would be recommended. While both are good lenses, you may use an adapter to use the A-mount lens on the smaller E-mount, but there is no adapter to use the smaller E-mount lens on the larger A-mount.

How would images taken with this lens and a 2x teleconverter compare with images taken from a 100-400mm Sony G lens?
Asked by: Mark
Both options would provide excellent image quality. However, having the FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS lens with the FE 2X Teleconverter allows you to shorten the range as needed by removing the teleconverter. With the FE 100-400mm lens, you’re stuck within a longer range unless you back up.

I am looking for the nodal points of 4-5 focal lengths covered by this zoom lens before I buy it. Can B&H or Sony help me?

I'm sorry but that info would be determined by using the lens on a rail, we do have a 30 day return policy.
