Product Research


Optics: The Sony FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS (SEL2870) standard 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 is recommended for use with full-frame cameras, but can be used on cameras with APS-C image sensors. (The lens has a 42-105mm equivalent focal length when used on APS-C cameras.) The lens comes with front and rear lens caps, and the ALC-SH132 lens hood.

Focusing: There are three ways to focus the lens: Auto Focus, DMF (Direct Manual Focus), and Manual Focus.

Optical Steady Shot (OSS): The SEL2870 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.

Lens Hood: The lens comes with the bayonet-type ALC-SH1432 lens hood to prevent stray light from entering the lens causing lens flare. When installed, the lens hood adds about 1-1/4" 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 picture.
