  • You will enjoy its high-speed SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) for its stellar performance
  • Three ED glass elements effectively suppress aberration
  • Exceptional sharpness and contrast throughout the image area
  • SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) for fast, quiet autofocus operation
  • Circular aperture for attractive defocusing
  • Focus hold and focus range switches offer precision focusing control
  • If you're serious about shooting sports, nature, or wildlife, or just about any subject that moves and needs to be shot from a distance, this is a lens that you'll want to have in your kit
  • 300mm is the sweet spot for a wide range of telephoto applications, and its large F2.8 maximum aperture makes it possible to use motion-stopping shutter speeds when shooting fast action, as well as to control depth-of-field for creative defocusing
  • Chromatic aberration can be problem in telephoto lenses, but the SAL300F28G uses three ED elements in a top-class optical design that reduces aberration to a minimum, ensuring high resolution, high contrast image quality at all aperture settings
  • A minimum focusing distance of just 2 meters is another advantage that is rare in a lens of this type, letting you take advantage of telephoto characteristics at close range
  • SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor):
  • A built-in lens motor for faster automatic focusing with high torque at low speed, quick start/stop response, and quiet, smooth operation
  • 2 DMF (Direct Manual Focus) Modes:
  • Allow you to quickly revert to manual focus by just turning the manual focus ring of the lens
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass:
  • Three precision ED Glass lenses correct chromatic aberrations to provide extremely sharp telephoto images for distant subjects as well as dramatic sports close-ups
  • Versatile Focus Hold:
  • Four focus hold buttons in different lens locations, plus electronic slider focus range selector switch
  • Internal Focusing System:
  • Internal lens elements move, so the overall length does not change - creating an auto-focus zoom lens that doesn't affect the balance of your camera
