Able to hold up to the demanding conditions and needs of professional wildlife, sports, and action photography, the 300mm f/2.8 G SSM II Lens from Sony will deliver outstanding images in some of the most difficult shooting scenarios. The super telephoto lens offers a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8, allowing for operation in less-than-ideal lighting and for the creation of images with smooth bokeh. Image quality is further improved with the use of three extra-low dispersion elements and a Nano AR coating which help minimize aberrations and reduce flare to improve resolution and contrast. Users will also have the ability to use the included slot-in circular polarizing filter to reduce glare and increase saturation.
Befitting a lens of this caliber is a Super Sonic wave AF Motor (SSM) and internal focus design to quickly and accurately lock onto the subject. With an LSI drive circuit tracking performance has been improved significantly compared to the lens' predecessor. The lens is also equipped with four focus hold buttons as well as an electronic focus range limiter switch for tactile control and operation of the lens. Additionally, it has a dust- and moisture-resistant construction for working in inclement weather and comes with a removable, rotating tripod collar for added stability.
