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

An update to one of Sony’s most popular zooms, the FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS II, offers improved optical performance and lighter weight compared to its predecessor. A true all-arounder, this fast zoom is suited for portraits, events, sports, wildlife, and just about anything in between. Its updated optical layout incorporates one XA element, one aspherical element, two extra-low dispersion aspherical elements, two extra-low dispersion elements, and two Super ED elements, keeping images sharp with little distortion.

Sony’s Nano AR II Coating is also applied to combat ghosts and flare. Four XD linear motors provide fast, quiet autofocusing and a host of on-lens controls streamline adjustments without having to navigate camera menus. Three modes of OSS ensure sharp image capture tailored to the needs of your shoot. Photographers who need even greater reach, such as wildlife or sports photographers, can pair this lens with Sony’s 1.4x and 2x teleconverters to achieve 98-280mm or 140-400mm focal length ranges, respectively.
