FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS Lens with UV Filter Kit Overview

By B&H Photo's
Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS Lens
Compact, Stabilized Telephoto Zoom for Full-Frame
A workhorse lens for events, sports, and portraiture, the Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS is a compact telephoto zoom featuring a constant f/4 maximum aperture, sophisticated G series optics, and useful AF and OSS. The smaller size, compared to an f/2.8 version, makes the lens a more portable option that is well-suited to all-day shoots and other situations where a more nimble, stabilized lens excels.
G Lens Series
  • Two extra-low dispersion glass elements and one Super ED element help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
  • One aspherical element and two Advanced Aspherical (AA) elements help suppress 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.
  • 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.
  • Versatile zoom range suits working with a variety of subjects, from portraiture and events applications to landscapes and sports shooting.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Image Stabilization, AF, and Handling
  • 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.
  • Focus range limiter switch allows you constrain the usable focus range between a set limited range or full for improving focus speed
  • Three focus hold buttons and an AF/MF switch is present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
  • 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.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
  • Removable and rotating tripod collar for added stability and reducing strain on the camera's lens mount.
Chiaro Pro 72mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 72mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

98% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Resistance Coating
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allow you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.
Polished Optical Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top and Side Knurling
In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling to better grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

Great all-around zoom

Solid construction and great zoom/focus ring action. Sharp picture with good stabilization as well. One of my must-haves for wedding photographers.

My work is primarily in sports video and photo. In my little experience using the lens thus far and with my modest knowledge of understanding its performance it seems to be a wonderful lens. Pairs well with the a7iii of course and has been a great addition to my gear for longer distance work. Like all lenses it will perform as well as you know how to use it.

Amazing lens and experience

B&H is awesome. A lot of companies say their customers are #1 - few deliver on that promise. B&H never fails to impress me!

Reliable lens from Sony. I use it mainly for video. Good in case you need a lighter lens than the F2. A bit slow AF, but my back is grateful about not having to carry the extra weight.

Disappointing poor sharpness

By Sky
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-19

I was excited by the small size and the light weight of this lens. Sadly, I was disappointed by the lack of sharpness it delivered in most of the photos I took. I put it on a second a7III with the same results. I watched and read lots of reviews on this lens, so was very disappointed in its failure to provide sharp images. Since then I have purchased a Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens, which I am very pleased with.

Is this lens useable for MF like the Canon 70-200mm F2.8 lens? As in it can be used in video with MF and track subjects with the annoying focus by wire issues on some AF lenses?
Asked by: Ryan
Yes, the lens is fine in manual focus mode. It will not have the accuracy of a Cine lens as those are designed for manual focus only during for video. Most find the lens very good.

I was going to purchase this lens used on eBay but the lens had an internal clicking noise when the lens was moved (on or off the camera). The tripod collar was not on the camera. The seller refunded but said "all these Sony 70-200 G/4 lenses make a clicking noise when moved. I've been shooting for over 50 years and have NEVER owned a lens that made noise when moved around. Is this seller just being angry for being called out on his product?
Asked by: Philip
the image stabilization on a lens is loose when off the camera giving a sensation that something is wrong. when the camera is turned on, the mechanism gets stiff and stops making noise.
