The 70-200mm f/2.8 G Alpha A-Mount Telephoto Zoom Lens from Sony is G-Series zoom lens that covers a broad range of frequent telephoto focal lengths, with a 35mm equivalent range of 105-300mm, fast f/2.8 aperture and quiet, high-speed Super Sonic Wave Motor (SSM).

With a full range of functions geared to the professional photographer, this lens provides sharp images across the entire film area at all apertures. High-quality multi-coatings increase transmittance and reduced flare to preserve contrast. It is constructed of 19 elements in 16 groups, as well as two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements - which all help to deliver sharp, clear photos throughout the zoom range. It has a minimum focusing distance of 3.9' and a front-end filter diameter of 77mm.

Aperture Range: f/2.8-32

With f/2.8 throughout the zoom range, up to a maximum of f/32, the high quality of this lens means you don't have to sacrifice aperture for higher focal lengths as some lenses do when zooming in.

For Alpha & Minolta Maxxum DSLRs

Designed with full-frame and APS-C sized sensors in mind, it is compatible with any of the Sony Alpha or Minolta Maxxum series DSLR cameras.

2x Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) Glass Elements

The lens is built with two Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements, which improves image quality by reducing color aberrations, as well as providing improved contrast and greater sharpness throughout the frame.

Super Sonic Wave Motor (SSM)

Designed for fast, smooth, silent automatic focusing, this unique technology achieves high torque at low speed with rapid start/stop response. It operates through the ability of a piezoelectric device to reshape itself quickly when voltage is applied.

Minimum Focus Distance: 3.9'

At 3.9' the minimum focusing distance of the lens makes it possible to move in for very close-up shots.

9x Blade Circular Aperture

Circular aperture blades produce smooth, rounded "bokeh" background effects when capturing spot-light sources in your pictures. Because the aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing out of focus effect.

Teleconverter Compatible

Compatible with optional Sony 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters, which extend the focal length of the lens. Teleconverters are compatible with manual focus only, however.

Focus Range Switch

Used when you need the quickest possible autofocus response within a certain focal range, the lens will only autofocus within the set range eliminating AF at focal lengths outside.
