A superb telephoto zoom lens that’s easy to carry. The Sony G-Series 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 Telephoto Zoom Lens is a brilliant performer for a wide range of medium-distance and long shots, with SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) design for fast, silent auto-focus, ED glass to virtually eliminate chromatic aberration, focus hold button and more. Minimum focusing distance of about 4 feet (1.2m) lets you move in close to your subject -- and even at full zoom extension it captures sharp, clear images thanks to the benefit of Super SteadyShot image stabilization built into every Sony ? system DSLR. (35mm equivalent: 105-450mm).

Key Features

  • Compact Design, All-Around Versatility : This superb 70-300mm zoom lens is an excellent choice for a wide range medium to long-distance telephoto applications -- and its lightweight design lets you leave it on-camera or carry it easily as an accessory lens for special purposes (35mm equivalent: 105-450mm).
  • Superb Optical Performance : Sony’s G-Series lenses are designed for maximum descriptive power, maintaining excellent peripheral light characteristics and minimizing contrast drop-off even at the edges of the frame.
  • Short Minimum Focusing Distance : With the ability to focus as closely as 4 feet (1.2m), this telephoto lens also lets you move in for dramatic shots of people, natural subjects and close-up details.
  • In-Camera Image Stabilization : A major reason for its compact, lightweight design is the benefit of Super SteadyShot in-camera image stabilization, built into every Sony & 945 system DSLR -- and enabling accessory lenses to eliminate the extra weight and expense of in-lens stabilization mechanisms.
  • SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) : Designed for fast, smooth, silent automatic focusing, this unique technology achieves high torque at low speed with rapid start/stop response. It operates through the ability of a piezoelectric device to reshape itself quickly when voltage is applied.
  • Focus Hold Button : For creative control and image preview, a focus hold button conveniently located on the lens barrel lets you firmly lock in focus -- and a focus range limiter can be set to speed auto-focus response.
  • Smooth Manual Focusing : An easy-grip focus ring on the lens barrel gives you a solid “hands-on” feel in manual focusing.
  • Multi-Element Design with Internal Focusing : The SAL-70300G is designed with 16 lens elements in 11 groups, with internal focusing so the balance of your camera never changes.
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass : Because light of different wavelength (or color) bends at different angles when it passes through a lens, ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass is used to eliminate chromatic aberration by correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.
  • Circular Aperture : Because the aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
