Product Research


Overview: The Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II (SEL70200GM2) is a G Master series telephoto zoom lens, designed for full frame (35mm) cameras. The lens covers the full 70-200mm focal range at a constant F2.8 maximum aperture. The SEL70200GM2 has an 11-blade circular aperture to provide a smooth defocusing effect for more artistic compositions. It features an internal focusing mechanism in which only the internal elements move as you zoom in and out without changing the external length of the lens. The lens comes with front and rear lens caps, a removable tripod collar, lens hood, and a zippered storage case.

Compatibility: The SEL70200GM2 has a Sony E-mount, and is compatible with α-series Interchangeable Lens Cameras with the E-mount. It works best with cameras with full frame (35mm) image sensors, but can be used on APS-C sensor equipped cameras in crop mode.

Sony G Master: Sony's G Master series of lenses represents a new level of lens technology. The new XA (extreme aspherical) element features unprecedented surface precision down to 0.01 micron to help achieve greater expression through higher resolutions and stunning bokeh. Like the original SEL70200GM lens, it has an 11-blade circular aperture for soft-edged defocused elements. G Master lenses are also known for fast accurate autofocusing powered by a Ring-drive SSM (super sonic wave motor). The G Master lens also features Sony's Nano AR Coating II technology to minimize flare and ghosting.

Lens Construction: The lens features 17 lens elements in 14 groups. This includes one aspherical element, one Extreme aspherical element (XA lens), one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) element, two Super ED glass elements, and two ED Aspherical lens elements. The lens also features a dust- and moisture-resistant design with a fluorine-coated front element that repels water, oils, and fingerprints for easy cleaning.

Reduced Weight: The "Mark II" version of this lens is significantly lighter than its predecessor. Constructed with magnesium alloy barrel components and XD Linear Motors result in an overall weight of 36.9 ounces, or just over 2.3 pounds, making it lightest in its class (as of October 2021). Sony's original FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS lens weighs 52.3 ounces (3.27 pounds).

XD Linear Motors: The SEL70200GM2 features four XD (Extreme Dynamic) Linear Motors, two for each of the lens' focus groups. The motors deliver enough thrust to increase AF speed by up to 4 times, compared to the original version of the lens. The XD Linear Motors also improve AF tracking while zoom by up to 30%. The motors operate in near silence making the lens ideal for movie recording.

Iris Lock: The barrel-mounted Iris Lock switch lets you lock the aperture ring a "A" for Auto Iris mode (exposure is set by the camera). When released, you can rotate the aperture ring between "A" and f/2.8 on the aperture scale.

Iris Click Switch: Under normal conditions, the aperture ring features audible clicks when rotating from setting to setting. The Iris Click switch can be turned off, recommended when shooting movies, to let you change the aperture value while shooting without the sound of the aperture ring being recorded.

Focus Controls: The SEL70200GM2 lens is equipped with several focus controls on the barrel of the lens:

  • Full-time Direct Manual Focus (DMF): With the Full-time DMF switch in the On position, the focus automatically switches to Manual Focus (MF) when the focusing ring is rotated, regardless of the AF mode setting and the focus adjustment.
  • Focus Mode Switch: You can switch between AF (autofocus) and MF (manual focus) on the lens. For AF photography, both the camera and lens should be set to AF. For MF photography, either or both the camera or lens should be set to MF. In MF mode, rotate the focusing ring to adjust the focus while looking through the viewfinder.
  • Focus Range Switch: The Focus Range Limiter switch (AF/MF range) reduces the time it takes to focus by limiting the distance the lens can focus. With the switch at Full, the lens can focus from the minimum focusing distance to infinity. In the Infinity-3m position, the lens can only focus from 9.8 feet (3 meters) to infinity.
  • Focus Hold Buttons: The lens is equipped with three focus hold buttons positioned around the barrel. When one of the buttons is pressed and held, the AF function is canceled and the current focus is fixed, allowing you to release the shutter. To start Autofocusing again, release the focus hold button and press the shutter button halfway.

Note: Some focus controls do not work with some cameras.

Optical SteadyShot (OSS): Sony's Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization gives you stable, blur-free images, even at slower shutter speeds or when you're zoomed in all the way. At high zooms, even the slightest hand movement can cause blurring and distortion. The lens has an OSS switch to turn the feature on/off, and a SteadyShot Mode Switch that lets you switch between the following modes: Mode 1 (for normal camera shake), Mode 2 (for camera shake when panning moving subjects), or Mode 3 (to help you keep up with fast and irregularly moving subjects, such as sports). When using a tripod, it is recommend that you turn off OSS.

Lens Hood: The SEL70200GM2 comes with the ALC-SH167 lens hood to protect the lens, reduce lens flare, and ensure maximum image quality. The hood has a polarizing filter window that can be opened to rotate the filter control without having to remove the hood. The hood attaches to the lens with a bayonet-type fit. When not in use, the lens hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens. The lens hood adds approximately 3" to the overall length of the lens.

Tripod Collar: The included tripod collar lets you mount the camera and lens to a tripod. Using the tripod collar instead of the camera's tripod receptacle creates a much more balanced and secure mount. In addition, you can loosen the ring on the tripod collar to rotate the camera between vertical to horizontal positions without detaching the camera. Gray dots (tripod collar ring indexes) located at 90-degree intervals on the collar ring help you adjust the camera vertical and horizontal positions more precisely. The tripod collar can be detached from the lens when not using a tripod, if desired.

Teleconverter Compatible: The SEL70200GM2 is compatible with Sony's E-mount teleconverters: SEL14TC and SEL20TC. The teleconverters extend the focal length of the lens when mounted between the camera body and lens. The SEL14TC increases the focal length of the lens by 1.4x to 98mm-280mm. The SEL20TC converts the 70-200mm lens to 140-400mm.
