    Product Features:

    Spectacular G Lens rendering

    Excellent corner-to-corner resolution and contrast throughout the zoom range are achieved by combining AA (advanced aspherical) and aspherical lens elements. Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements and one Super ED element suppress chromatic aberration and color bleeding for revealing sharpness. Exquisite full-frame bokeh is enhanced by a circular 9-blade aperture mechanism and optimized spherical aberration.

    Eye-opening close-up performance

    This is the world's first zoom lens in its class to offer half-macro capability throughout the zoom range. Minimum focusing distance is 10- 1/4 in. (0.26 m) at the wide end and 16-1/2 in. (0.42 m) at the telephoto end of the zoom range, with a maximum magnification of 0.5x throughout. New levels of zoom close-up capability offer unprecedented versatility and freedom for shooting stills as well as movies.

    Fast autofocus matches high-speed cameras

    Four of Sony's original high-thrust XD linear motors work in conjunction with precision floating focus groups to achieve extremely fast, accurate focus drive. Thrust efficiency has been dramatically improved, resulting in up to approximately a 20% increase in autofocus speed throughout the entire zoom range when shooting stills. The speed potential of high-performance α series cameras is fully realized. Focus tracking continues uninterrupted even while zooming, ensuring that important moments of the action won't be lost.

    Refined movie performance and imagery

    Linear Response MF ensures that manual focus responds directly and linearly to subtle control. The breathing compensation function provided in compatible α series cameras is fully supported, reducing unwanted image shifts while focusing. Built-in optical image stabilization can work in conjunction with the in-body stabilization in compatible α series cameras to provide extremely smooth, stable handheld footage.

    Top-class performance with teleconverters

    The FE 70-200mm F4 Macro G OSS II is fully compatible with Sony's 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters. In addition to increasing maximum focal length, the 2.0x teleconverter make it possible to shoot life-size 1:1 macro at all focal lengths for new creative potential. Attached with the 1.4x teleconverter, it can shoot max. 0.7x macro at all focal lengths. And because the working distance does not change with the teleconverter attached, you can move in close to the subject to capture truly impressive images.

    Compact, mobile, reliable, and easy to use

    This innovative lens offers a rare blend of performance and compact mobility. It is 3-1/4 in. (82.2 mm) in diameter by 5- 7/8 in. (149 mm) in length at the wide end of the zoom range and weighs 28.1 oz. (794 g). An extending lens design was chosen to maximize portability, and a zoom lock switch is provided to prevent unwanted lens extension during transportation.

    Lens Configuration

    Impeccable Sony G Lens design emphasizes a graceful balance between high resolution and gorgeous background bokeh to enhance the artist’s vision.
