The benchmark-setting Sony FE 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS lens achieves incomparable standards of image quality, autofocus performance and image stabilisation. The most advanced technology available distinguishes this lens, like all Sony G Master lenses, from others to help produce extraordinary resolution and lifelike colour. Subjects are rendered in exceptional detail, which dissolves beautifully into stunning background bokeh.
The Sony 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS lens’ close-up performance is nothing short of exceptional. Create outstanding portraits, telephoto macro images and other close-ups thanks to a minimum focusing distance of 96cm and maximum magnification of 0.25x.
The Sony 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS lens combines a double linear motor with a RDSSM (Ring Drive Super Sonic wave Motor) drive system to deliver rapid, quiet and highly precise autofocus. This process works seamlessly and in real time with your camera’s autofocus system so it can perform at maximum capability. The lens focusing system’s double linear motor also provides crucial actuation for the AF contrast detection system during video recording. Reduced focus breathing offers yet more benefit for smooth movie shooting.
The highest standards of design and construction tailor the Sony 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS lens for professional work in the field. The length of the lens remains constant during both zooming and focusing, providing superb handling in any scenario. Focus hold buttons maintain your focus point even with continuous AF enabled, and a focus range limiter switch allows you to preset a focusing distance range to keep autofocus speed as high as possible. The tripod mount lets you rapidly switch between tripod-mounted and handheld shooting, and revolves to allow fast changeover between portrait and landscape composition.
Even if you’re photographing unpredictable action, be it on the sports field or out in nature, the Sony 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS lens’ built-in image stabilisation provides the assurance of sharp and blur-free handheld shots. Switch to MODE 2 OSS when planning to achieve even greater impact and clarity. Team this lens with an in-body stabilised Sony camera to acquire 5-axis image stabilisation.
Highly durable and dust- and moisture-resistant, the Sony 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS lens lets you shoot with confidence even in challenging conditions such as wind or light rain. The front element of the lens is fluorine coated, preventing fouling of the lens surface and allowing for easier cleaning.

The Sony FE 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS lens is compatible with all Sony E-mount cameras, both full frame (FE) and APS-C sensor (E) format. It’s designed for full frame sensor cameras so will produce 1.5x more zoom (i.e. the equivalent of 105-300mm) when used on a cropped sensor body.
The lens hood included with the Sony 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS lens features a polarising filter window. When a polarising filter (sold separately) is mounted on the lens, this window allows you to rotate the filter without needing to remove the lens hood. The window should be closed during shooting.
