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

With more reach than a 70-200mm, the FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS is a versatile tele zoom ranging up to the super-tele realm. This G series lens trades speed for a sleeker form factor and utilizes aspherical elements and low dispersion glass to produce well-corrected, sharp imagery. A linear autofocus motor also contributes to quick and precise focusing performance, while Optical SteadyShot image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake when shooting handheld.

Applications: This wide-ranging telephoto zoom covers everything from portrait length to the brink of super-telephoto and features a relatively compact and lightweight design. The trade-off of speed for portability and OSS makes it a good choice for walkaround shooting and long-range subjects, including sports and wildlife, when working handheld in daylight conditions.
