Optics: The Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS (SEL70200G) telephoto
zoom lens is compatible with the
Sony α interchangeable lens cameras with the E-mount. It cannot be used on
a camera with the Sony A-mount. The lens has a focal length of 70-200mm with 35mm full frame cameras like the A7 (ILCE7 and 7R), and
105-300mm on NEX-series cameras with APS-C-sized image sensors. The lens
features an aluminum alloy barrel, and comes with the ALC-SH133 lens hood,
tripod-mount collar, front and rear
lens caps, and a storage pouch.
Sony G Lens: Sony's G lenses are designed and manufactured
to the highest standards of optical performance. The SEL70200G lens utilizes
original Sony technologies to achieve superb clarity and sharpness to maximize
the performance of Sony's advanced imaging sensors and camera systems.
Optical Steady Shot (OSS): The SEL70200G has built-in
Optical Steady Shot (OSS) lens stabilization. When mounted to a compatible
camera, Optical Steady Shot can compensate for camera shake to prevent blurred
images, especially when zoomed in all the way, or in low light situations. Gyro
sensors built into the lens can detect even the slightest movement and
compensate for any image blur that might occur. There are two Shake Compensation
modes: Mode 1 compensates for normal camera shake, while Mode 2 compensates for
camera shake when panning (left-right or right-left). The shake compensation is
equivalent to 4 stops.
Internal Focusing: The FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS lens features
internal focusing. Only the middle groups of the optical system move to achieve
focus, so the overall length of the lens does not change. Internal focusing
helps you achieve fast auto focusing. Because the front of the lens does not
rotate, using a polarizing filter is more convenient.
Focus-mode Switch: The lens features a focus-mode switch
that allows you to switch between AF (auto-focus) and MF (manual-focus). For
auto-focus photography, both the lens and the camera need to be set to AF. For
manual-focus, either or both the camera or the lens should be set to MF.
Focus Hold Buttons: Three Focus Hold buttons are provided
between the focus and zoom rings. When shooting in AF mode, pressing and holding
a focus hold button will cancel auto-focusing, allowing you to release the
shutter at a fixed focus. When you release the button and press the shutter
button again to start auto-focusing.
Focus Range Limiter: The SEL70200G lens has a focal length
range of 70mm to 200mm. The Focus Range Limiter can save you time during AF
operation, preventing the lens from "hunting" through the entire focusing range.
When the Focus Range Limiter is engaged, the lens will only focus between 9.8'
(3m) and infinity.
Tripod Mounting Collar: When using a tripod, the included
tripod mounting collar lets you attach the tripod to the lens instead of the
camera, providing much better balance. When the collar locking knob is loosened,
you can quickly and easily switch between vertical and horizontal shooting by
simply rotating the camera in either direction. Collar indexes (gray dots) are
provided at 90° intervals to accurately indicate vertical and horizontal
Lens Hood: The lens comes with the bayonet-type ALC-SH133 lens hood
to prevent stray light from entering the lens causing lens flare. When installed, the lens hood adds
about 2.7" to the overall length of the lens. When shooting with external
flash, you should remove the lens hood to prevent shadows at the bottom of the
