You must complete all required fields.
  • High-resolution Telephoto Zoom
  • Dust and Moisture Resistant
  • Circular 9-blade Aperture
  • Filter Diameter: 72mm
  • Sony G Lens design emphasizes a graceful balance between high resolution and gorgeous background bokeh that can enhance the artist's vision.
  • Sony Nano AR Coating to eliminate flare and ghosting
  • Circular 9-blade aperture for beautiful defocus effects
  • Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization
  • 105-450mm equivalent on APS-C cameras
  • High resolution throughout the entire zoom range: 4 aspherical elements, 2 ED glass elements - Suppresses aberration & distortion
  • Class-leading close-up capability for tele-macro photography: Minimum focusing distance of 0.9mm; Maximum magnification of 0.31x
  • Linear actuator achieves fast, smooth, quiet autofocus
  • Full-frame 70-300mm G Series F4.5?5.6 G Telephoto zoom:
  • Sony's G-Series lenses are designed for maximum descriptive power, maintaining excellent peripheral light characteristics and maximizing contrast even at the edges of the frame.
  • The SEL70300G offers high zoom and magnification for full-frame E-mount cameras equivalent to 70-300mm F4.5?5.6. In addition, when mounted to APS C cameras, the focal range can reach 105-450mm offering reach beyond previously available E-mount lenses.
  • Nano AR Coating with nano-precision structure:
  • Sony's original Nano AR Coating technology produces a lens coating that features a precisely defined regular nano-structure that allows accurate light transmission while effectively suppressing reflections that can cause flare and ghosting. The reflection suppression characteristics of the Nano AR Coating are superior to conventional anti-reflective coatings, including coatings that use an irregular nano-structure, providing a notable improvement in clarity, contrast, and overall image quality.
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization:
  • Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to reduce camera shake, particularly in telephoto, close-up, and low-light situations where camera shake is most likely to affect image quality. OSS makes it easier to capture clear images when shooting handheld. A convenient on/off switch - on the lens itself - can be used to control internal image stabilization which speeds up operation as there is no need to access the camera menu.
  • Class-leading close-up focusing capability less than 3' (0.9m):
  • The SEL70300G telephoto zoom lens also features class-leading close-up performance, with a minimum focusing distance of less than 3 feet (0.9m) and a maximum magnification of 0.31x, making it an ideal choice for tele-macro photography. This outstanding close-up performance also factors into the lens? excellent corner-to-corner sharpness.
  • 9-blade circular aperture:
  • The 9-blade circular aperture forms a nearly perfect circle to create a pleasing and beautifully round background defocus or bokeh effect, especially when the lens is wide open.
  • 2x ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements:
  • As focal lengths get longer, lenses built with conventional optical glass have difficulties with chromatic aberration, and as a result images suffer from lower contrast, lower color quality, and lower resolution. To counter such problems, 2x ED glass elements are included in the SEL70300G. It dramatically improves chromatic aberration at telephoto ranges, and provides superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings.
  • 4x Aspherical elements control spherical aberration and coma:
  • The SEL70300G has an innovative optical design to achieve clear, high-quality images by effectively minimizing distortion and chromatic aberration. A double-gauss configuration effectively suppresses field curvature and distortion, while a four precisely placed aspherical element control spherical aberration and coma for excellent optical characteristics right out to the image periphery. An aspherical element in a new optical design that controls all types of aberration (spherical, coma, distortion), rendering the subject with superior sharpness.
  • Sophisticated, solid and reliable:
  • The exterior metal barrel and sealed buttons and rings
  • Deliver outstanding operability and reliability in a design that resists the intrusion of dust and moisture which helps to ensure reliable operation in harsh outdoor conditions.
  • Designed for reliability in a wide range of environments, the metal mount adds a sophisticated feel as well as solid durability.
  • Linear actuator achieve fast, smooth, quiet autofocus:
  • A linear actuator and an inner focus mechanism are used for focus drive, resulting in fast, smooth, quiet focus operation. Lens noise pickup can be a problem when shooting movies, but with this lens operation is so smooth and quiet that autofocus can be used for shooting movies as well as stills.
  • Enhanced operability w/ direct control:
  • The SEL70300G features convenient direct buttons and switches to enhance the ease and operability. These include a focus hold button, focus mode switch, focus range limiter, Optical SteadyShot switch and zoom lock switch.
  • Focus hold button:
  • Once you've adjusted focus to where you want it, holding this button on the lens barrel will keep the lens locked to that focusing distance. The preview function can also be assigned to this button through the camera's custom settings.
  • Focus range limiter:
  • This function allows you to set a limit on the focusing range which can save you time during auto focus operation - as the lens will not 'hunt' through the entire focusing range. Selections are infinity to 3 meters for medium to distant focusing, and FULL for full-range focusing.
  • Zoom lock switch:
  • The zoom lock switch prevents unwanted lens extension during transportation.
  • Focus-mode switch:
  • A conveniently located switch allows manual or auto focus to be easily selected while viewing through the camera's viewfinder.
  • Compatibility:
  • E-mount Full Frame cameras
  • E-mount APS-C cameras

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridiculously Good Quality "Af first, I thought, it would look ridiculous on my small Sony a600. But I tried it on, nevertheless. It turned out not to be that ridiculous after all. It was a bit heavy, but not too heavy. It was ok to handle, could zoom in and out with ease. I shot a few test photos, side by side with my Sony 55-210mm lens and compared them on the LCD screen of the camera. It had a bit better zoom range but nothing major. So I decided not to buy it. It is a pricy lens, my 55-210 will do for now. I went home, and just for curiosity, I checked out my test shots on my computer. That is when I got the shocker. The 70-300 had so much more details and incredible sharpness even in the very edges, that I decided to go back and buy the lens. The moral of the story: Never trust your LCD to critique your photos. And definitely, do not base your lens buying decisions, only resorting to that tiny screen at the back of your camera."
