Sony 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

In addition to adding the telephoto zoom lens to your camera bag, the Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS Lens with Circular Polarizer Filter Kit from B&H also includes a versatile 72mm circular polarizer filter to help increase saturation, accentuate colors, and reduce reflections.

  • Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS Lens

    Spanning a useful range of telephoto focal lengths, the FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS from Sony is a versatile zoom lens designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras. Complementing the reach, this lens' optical design incorporates four aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion glass elements to control spherical and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for increased clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy. A Nano AR coating has also been applied to individual lens elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. Well-suited to a variety of telephoto needs, this zoom lens balances both a versatile focal length range along with a sophisticated optical design for maintained image quality.

    Working in concert with the optical assets, this lens also incorporates an Optical SteadyShot image stabilization mechanism that minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Also benefitting sharpness is a linear actuator autofocus system, which offers smooth, quiet focusing performance to support both stills and movie recording applications. An internal focusing mechanism is also employed, which limits the overall length of the lens when focusing and both a focus range limiter and focus hold button facilitate more intuitive handling. Additionally, the lens is designed to be dust- and moisture resistant for use in trying conditions.

    Designed to cover a variety of telephoto perspectives, this full-frame 70-300mm E-mount lens can also be used on APS-C format cameras where it will provide an equivalent zoom range of 105-450mm.
    A variable f/4.5-5.6 aperture helps keep lens size and weight to a minimum while still offering outstanding image quality.
    Two extra-low dispersion glass elements are featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
    Four aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
    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.
    A linear autofocus motor and internal focus design provide quick and precise autofocus performance and enables accurate and silent focusing while recording videos.
    A focus range limiter button offers faster performance when photographing moving subjects.
    Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
    Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

  • Hoya 72mm NXT Circular Polarizer Filter

    The Hoya 72mm NXT Circular Polarizer Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

    A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

    This filter is non-coated. Hoya NXT filters have over 97% average light transmission, and are constructed from heat-resistant, high-transparency optical glass.

Sony 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 reviews

FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS Lens with Circular Polarizer Filter Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, silent focus and sharp I just received this lens a couple of days ago and have been testing it with my Sony a7R III camera. Held unmounted, the lens seems a little awkward and heavy, but mounted on the camera and handheld, it is quite comfortable and feels natural to me. On this camera, the lens acquires focus very fast, is totally silent, and has sharpness that far exceeds my expectations. The attached sample photos are unedited except for cropping. The boat dock photo was taken using a tripod with manual focus at 650 yards - note the detail of the writing on the back of the boat. The truck photo was taken handheld with autofocus at 900 yards - the truck was moving perpendicular to the camera line of sight at approximately 30 mph. I am very happy with this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens, highly recommend! I like to carry a relatively long lightweight lens with me when I walk my dog in local parks and rural areas. This Sony 70-300mm fits the bill. I can photograph wildlife, landscapes, individual plants and even some insects and birds if they're fairly close to me. I think this lens is very sharp although I haven't done any formal testing--I prefer to read reviews by professional reviewers. I previously owned the Canon 70-300mm f/4 L IS lens and this one is sharper and probably lighter too. I presently use this lens with the a7III and hope to pick up an a6500 or it's soon to be released successor to gain some additional reach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the BEST lenses for the A6500! This lens is the sharpest I own for the Sony E-mount system. �Compares very favorably to the 70-200 GM! �Love that it shoots as a 105-450 on the A6500. �Perfect for wildlife!
Date published: 2018-01-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great lens It has a little heft to it but I expected that.� Actually, not so heavy for the reach it provides.� I really needed a 70-300 mm. and this lens is sharp at all focal lengths.� Very happy and satisfied with this lens.
Date published: 2018-06-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens I was torn between this and the Sony 70-200 f4. �Actually bought both and for me, the 70-300 was the clear winner! �Its incredibly sharp, the extra 100mm is perfect on my sony a6500 for wildlife shots and the close focusing makes macro shots easy and fun. �Its a little heavier than I would like but I'm really loving this lens!
Date published: 2018-04-04
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Has potential but have received two bad copies The lens has a nice range for its size. Construction feels solid. However, I've now gone through two bad copies where it simply won't deliver a sharp image. Between 70-135mm it is bad and between 135 to 300mm is simply awful. I've taken pictures of static objects with 1/1000 sec ISO 100 with blurred images. I've tried manually focusing. I've tried turning stabilization on/off etc. Nothing is in focus. AF locks on quickly.� I'm going to give one more copy a try and then look for an alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera/lens combination! The lens doe a a terrific job on the A7 III, producing sharp images with great, quick� focusing.
Date published: 2018-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new lens I am sorry, but I cannot make a "normal" review of the lens, because I do not have my camera yet. I ordered a Sony a7III at Henry's store and they told me that I have to wait at least a month, meantime I ordered one lens from you and 24-105 F/4 from Sony Canada which has the same waiting period... The last lens you just refused to send to Canada so I did not have another option. Your lens looks good but this is the only thing I can say now, sorry.
