Superior G Lens rendering

State-of-the-art optics in a compact, lightweight lens with constant F4 maximum aperture offer the appealing, expressive image quality that the G Lens lineup is famous for. G Lenses are manufactured to exacting tolerances and individually tested to ensure that each and every unit meets the same high standards of image quality and creative control.

Optimum sharpness and bokeh in one lens

Precision AA (advanced aspherical) elements, super ED glass, and the Nano AR coating work together in an advanced optical design to deliver high resolution throughout the entire image at all focal lengths. A 9-blade circular aperture extends the lens’s expressive capabilities by contributing to gorgeous background bokeh with natural highlights.

Lightweight mobility and smooth control

This compact, lightweight full-frame E-mount zoom lens maximizes mobility as well as balance with α7 series bodies. Internal focusing is an advantage too, maintaining constant lens length for better all-around handling. All controls, including focus hold and focus range limiter switches, have been designed for intuitive operation so the user can concentrate on the image.1

Always sharp and clear

Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization compensates for camera shake that can blur images when shooting handheld. Sharp, clear telephoto shots are easier to achieve, and indoor shots in dim lighting can be captured without the need to boost ISO sensitivity and risk increased noise.

Panning modes

The first image stabilization mode switch in an α lens provides a “panning mode” that allows Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to remain active while panning. This makes it possible to capture dynamic horizontally panned shots while effectively minimizing shake induced blur in other axes.

Constant f4 maximum aperture

A constant F4 aperture across the entire 70–200mm range means you can zoom and reframe as necessary without having to think about changing exposure settings.

Dual Linear Motors

Focusing is fast and precise thanks to Dual Linear Motors. The quiet and fluid movement is perfect for shooting movies, fast-paced action, or whenever focus is being changed quickly and often. The use of an internal focusing group, rather than a moving front lens element, makes for a compact design that works well with accessories like lens hoods and polarising filters.

Nano AR Coating

This lens coating has been designed to accurately transmit light while reducing the negative effects of glare, reflection and ghosting. This creates shots with enhanced contrast, clarity and overall image quality.

9-blade circular aperture

The unique 9-blade circular design lets the aperture remain almost perfectly circular even when stopped down by two stops. This makes it possible to achieve smoother, more natural defocusing in your images – including artistic blurring or 'bokeh' – and greater control over the depth of field.

Reliable and easy in any conditions

Reliable operation in a variety of conditions is ensured by a design that prevents dust and moisture from entering the lens.

The key specification of this lens is that Sony has opted for a maximum aperture of f/4 rather than f/2.8. While a few photographers may be ready to dismiss the lens purely on these grounds, the reason for this choice is quite obvious.

Photography BLOG

The Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS is an excellent telephoto zoom lens for Sony's full-frame compact system cameras. It delivers outstanding sharpness in the centre of the frame almost throughout its entire aperture and zoom range, even performing well wide-open at f/4, although you'll need to stop down...

TechRadar UK

Overall image quality isn't quite as good as from most competing lenses on test, which is disappointing considering the price.

The Digital Picture

The FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS Lens fills an important niche in the Sony lens lineup. Looking for a professional-grade, high-performing Sony telephoto zoom lens that is able to be comfortably carried for long periods of time and doesn't cost a fortune? Look no further. This lens has your name on it.

What Digital Camera

At first I was a little concerned about the size of the Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS lens, worrying that it would dwarf the Alpha 7R. However, while it certainly is not the smallest of lenses, it pairs well with the Alpha 7 cameras, offering a good compromise between size, weight and portability.

Fredmiranda

The size of the lens is about the same as the Canon/Nikon competitors which is very compact for a 70-200 f/4 lens. Yes, maybe it's not a small lens but we are talking full frame here and I always prefer IQ over size.The Sony 70-200 f/4 is just as good or better than my Canon 70-200 f/4L IS which is...

Camera Labs

Sony's FE 70-200mm f4G OSS was the first telephoto zoom for its full-frame mirrorless cameras and remains one of the best options for fairly close range action. The f4 aperture may not deliver as much (or as attractive) blurring as the FE 70-200mm f2.8 GM, nor will its focal length reach as far as...

OpticalLimits

The Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS is, undoubtedly, a high quality with just a few weaknesses. The resolution is generally on a very high level except at 200mm @ f/4 where the corners are too soft. Lateral CAs are well corrected and help to keep a high sharpness perception.

Imaging Resource

Until recently , the FE 70-200mm was the longest focal length lens offered for Sony's relatively new full-frame mirrorless models. The Sony FE 70-200 ƒ/4 OSS offers a compact and comfortable shooting experience with a classic, versatile range of focal lengths.

Photodo

Specification Every full frame system offers a 70-200mm (or thereabouts) lens, usually f/2.8. These are, however, quite large and heavy and one of the perceived advantages of the Sony Alpha 7 system is its compact nature.

While everything about this lens is to be liked - there is one particular problem that is pretty annoying. There is loads of purple fringing in high contrast areas. To go for a 2.8 is way out of my means, the reviews that I had read before making this selection is that you lose 1 stop of light...

This lens is quite expensive but it is a case of you get what you pay for. The lens is of solid construction and silent in operation. However, the main advantage is super quick focussing and amazingly sharp images.

I've been using this product for eight months in all weathers and have found it to an excellent piece of kit.It's very well balanced making it easy to hand hold and the compact design means it takes up little space in the camera bag.The optics are outstanding and the total weight is comparatively...

I bought this lens about a month ago and had been bringing it with me every time I go for a shoot. This is attributed to the lens' light weight (for this class of lens) and its image quality. The lens renders very sharp image even at F4.

Wex Photo Video

As one would expect this is not a light or small lens. I use it on an Alpha 6000 and am very pleased with the results. The images are very sharp, even at f4. The only possible criticism is that the bokeh isn't as smooth as it could be.

I have had the lens for about 5 months now and I am very pleased with the resulting images that the lens produces, couple with the Sony A7R mkiii it's a wining combination. I used to have a Canon 70 - 200mm F2.8 but I really don't miss it and this lighter lens is a joy to carry around.

WEX

This beauty completes my ideal range of lenses. I have used this lens only for a few shots to date, but the sharpness, speed, and compression needed is quite exceptional. I did not find a need to go to the f2.8 as most of my work would be from f5.6 -f11

Never bought a Sony g lens before wish I had.the photos are so crisp with this lens.also quite light for its size.very well made will def be investing in more g lenses in the future
