The first super-telephoto zoom in Sony’s flagship G Master series covers a versatile 100mm to 400mm range.With extraordinary resolution and fast, precise autofocus it lets you capture distant action with outstanding quality and immediacy. In addition to world-class image quality, this fine lens offers the mobility, reliability, and operability that professional applications demand.
A 100mm to 400mm zoom range is ideal for sports, wildlife, and similar subjects, with image quality and AF performance that support professional working needs.
Floating focus with double linear motor and DDSSM (Direct Drive SSM) drive systems achieves quick response, high accuracy, and tenacious tracking.
A floating focus mechanism achieves a minimum focus distance of just 0.98 meters (3.22ft.) so you can track and shoot subjects at any distance with one lens.
Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and one Super ED glass element strategically deployed in an advanced optical design effectively suppress axial chromatic aberration that is often a cause of resolution falloff in telephoto lenses. The result is exceptionally clear, well-defined images.
Sony’s Nano AR Coating suppresses spurious reflections that can cause flare and ghosting in backlit and other challenging lighting situations, for consistently high contrast and clarity. Reduced flare, particularly when shooting in bright outdoor conditions, means greater framing and composing flexibility. (1. Nano AR coating / 2. Glass / 3. Transmitted light)
Magnesium alloy components and other refinements contribute to high durability as well as class-leading size and weight reductions that not only mean greater mobility, but improved manageability with lightweight bodies for easier, more stable handheld shooting.
This is the first α lens to include a zoom smoothness adjuster that provides mechanical control of zoom ring torque. Set a lower torque for fast zooming, or increase torque when slow, stable zooming is required. Fine adjustment allows the feel of the lens to be matched to individual user needs.
Floating focus and high positioning precision have made it possible to achieve a minimum focus distance of just 0.98 meters (3.22ft.) with up to 0.35x magnification. You have a versatile 100mm to 400mm super-telephoto zoom range, plus outstanding close-up performance at 100mm.
Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization makes it easier to capture blur-free images, particularly when shooting sports or other subjects that require fast stabilization response. Mode 2 stabilization facilitates dynamic panned shots. 5-axis stabilization becomes available when used with α series bodies that feature in-body stabilization.
The lens’s front element features a fluorine coating that helps to prevent dirt and fingerprints from sticking, and makes it easier to wipe dirt and fingerprints away if they do become attached to the lens surface. This can be a significant advantage for outdoor shooting.
An access window that can be opened or closed as required allows easy access for polarizing filter operation, and a hood lock switch prevents accidental detachment or rotation of the lens hood while shooting or moving around.
The overall design of this lens is dust and moisture resistant for extra protection and reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions
