Tiny subjects in extraordinary detail

Capture the tiniest of subjects, from a raindrop on a spider’s web to engravings on an antique ring, with extraordinary detail using the Sony FE 90mm f 2.8 Macro G OSS Lens. A fixed, mid-telephoto focal range and 1.0x magnification ratio makes this macro lens perfect for photographing small subjects up close without disturbing or overshadowing them.

Peak optical performance

Outstanding G lens quality ensures the stunning resolution and beautifully smooth bokeh of the Sony FE 90mm f 2.8 Macro G OSS Lens. Each lens is individually tested and calibrated, resulting in peak optical performance with minimal spherical aberration. A floating focus mechanism maintains this quality at all focusing distances, and a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture allows for striking background separation, as well as good performance in low-light situations.

Fast, accurate and quiet focus

Dual DDSSM (Direct Drive Super Sonic wave Motor) systems allow the Sony FE 90mm f 2.8 Macro G OSS lens to focus with speed, accuracy and quietness. This allows you to not only secure sharp images but also avoid alarming your subject (if photographing animals or insects) or disrupting your video footage with operational noise. Press the focus hold button (conveniently located on the lens barrel) to keep your focus locked at a given setting, even in continuous AF mode.

Inner focus for improved handling

Even slight extension and rotation of your lens can hinder good macro photography. The Sony 90mm f 2.8 Macro G OSS Lens sports inner focus so the lens length remains unchanged during focusing. As well as improved handling this provides faster autofocus, a closer minimum focusing distance, and no rotation of the front filter thread – particularly beneficial for users of polarising filters. Minimal focus breathing is another advantage, which video producers will certainly appreciate.  

Quick, intuitive auto/manual focus switching

Looking away from the viewfinder to switch between auto and manual focus can often mean missing the shot. The Sony FE 90mm f 2.8 Macro G OSS lens allows you to keep your eyes on your subject, thanks to a focus ring—conveniently placed where your hand would rest while shooting—that can be slid back and forth to activate auto or manual focus.

Sharp, handheld macro shooting

Sharp macro photography usually requires a tripod, but the Sony 90mm f 2.8 Macro G OSS Lens’ inbuilt Optical SteadyShot (OSS) image stabilisation makes it possible to capture sharp macro shots handheld. Couple the Sony 90mm Macro G lens with an in-body stabilised Sony camera to get the benefit of 5-axis image stabilisation.

Weather resistant design

With its dust- and moisture-resistant design, the Sony 90mm f 2.8 Macro G OSS Lens gives you the confidence to photograph even in challenging conditions such as wind or light rain.

Does the Sony 90mm Macro lens work with Sony a6000 and Sony a7 series cameras?

The Sony 90mm f 2.8 Macro G OSS lens is compatible with all Sony E-mount cameras, both full frame (FE) and APS-C (E) format. Being an FE lens it is designed for FE (full frame sensor) cameras so will produce 1.5x more zoom (i.e. 135mm) when used on an APS-C camera body.

Can the Sony 90mm Macro lens be used for non-macro photography?

Yes, it can. Although the Sony 90mm f 2.8 Macro G OSS lens is designed with the close focusing and magnification capabilities that enable macro photography, it also functions well for portraiture and other scenarios that require a short to midrange telephoto zoom and fast aperture.

Does the Sony FE 90mm f 2.8 Macro G OSS lens have internal zoom or focus?

The Sony 90mm f 2.8 Macro G OSS lens features internal focus so will not change in length when you focus, though it will lengthen/shorten when you zoom in/out.
