An F2.8 telephoto zoom like no other

The most advanced technology available has been applied in the G Master series, further refining acclaimed Sony G Lens performance. This model combines refined G Lens bokeh with new levels of resolution in an outstanding constant F2.8 telephoto zoom that offers unsurpassed rendering, blazing AF, and extraordinary image stabilization performance.

Extraordinary detail and bokeh in one lens

Specifically designed to resolve spatial frequencies with excellent contrast, this lens includes three aspherical elements, including one double-sided and one newly developed XA (extreme aspherical) element with 0.01-micron surface precision, to effectively control aberration for astonishing resolution plus glorious bokeh.

Natural images without spurious colour

Chromatic aberration that can be a problem in telephoto lenses is thoroughly suppressed by the use of four ED (Extra-low-Dispersion) glass elements and two Super ED glass elements. Colour bleeding is banished so the subject can be captured with maximum sharpness.

Further refinements for spot-on movie AF

The focusing system’s double linear motor takes on the vital role of providing “wobbling” actuation for the AF contrast detection system when shooting video. An optical design that effectively minimizes focus breathing plus quiet mechanical operation further adds to focusing performance that is ideal for movies as well as stills.

Class-leading close-up performance

Class-leading close-up performance with a minimum focusing distance of 0.96m and 0.25x maximum magnification is ideal for portraits, telephoto macro, and more. Contributing refinements include ED glass elements and a floating focus mechanism to control aberration that can be problematic in close-up applications.

Fast AF optimized for stills and video

Two heavy focus groups are rapidly and precisely positioned by separate actuators: a powerful ring SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) actuator for the front group, and a double linear motor actuator for the rear group. Improved positioning precision works with real-time feedback from multiple position sensors to allow the body’s AF system to operate at full capacity.

Outstanding clarity and contrast

Advanced Nano AR Coating technology produces a lens coating with a precisely defined regular nano-structure that effectively suppresses reflections that can cause flare and ghosting, for notable improvements in clarity, contrast, and overall image quality.(1. Nano AR Coating / 2.Glass / 3.Transmitted light)

Operation and reliability optimized for fieldwork

Rigid construction with constant lens length during focusing and zooming contribute to excellent handling in the widest range of shooting situations. Focus hold buttons can hold the focus point even during continuous AF operation, and a focus range limiter switch can be used to preset a focusing distance range for maximum AF speed.

11 blades for luscious bokeh

Sony’s circular aperture design has traditionally employed up to 9 blades, but this lens incorporates an 11-blade circular aperture that takes bokeh quality to new levels of smooth beauty with natural-looking highlights.

Stabilized for sharp, blur-free images

High-performance image stabilization is built right into the lens for sharp, blur-free images with a wide range of subjects. The heavy stabilization lens is driven by a linear motor for fast, precise stabilization. 5-axis image stabilization becomes available when used with α series bodies that feature built-in image stabilization.

Stable even when panning

To provide the greatest possible benefit from the built-in image stabilization system in the widest range of shooting situations, the SEL70200GM features switchable MODE 2 stabilization that allows image stabilization to be used with panned shots for greater clarity and impact.

Removable rotating tripod mount

This versatile lens tripod mount allows the camera to be quickly removed from the tripod in shooting situations that require a rapid handheld response. It also features a revolving mechanism that allows quick changeover between landscape and portrait orientation. A lock mechanism prevents accidental detachment.

High reliability in harsh conditions

A sealed dust and moisture resistant design and fluorine front element coating provide extra protection to ensure reliable operation in challenging environments.

The Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS is an oustanding telephoto zoom lens for Sony's full-frame compact system cameras, although there's a high price to pay for such quality. It delivers outstanding sharpness in the centre of the frame almost throughout its entire aperture and zoom range, also...


The FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS lens is a great companion for the α9 camera, both physically and in performance. It delivers excellent centre-of-frame resolution throughout almost its entire aperture and focal length range, with a relatively small loss of sharpness at the widest apertures.

Digitalcamera HQ

This lens stands out to us due to its image stabilization technology. Even in videos, there will be almost no shakiness, and this is what all photographers want. The Nano AR coating is another great aspect because it makes the lens less prone to damage.

Camera Labs

The FE 70-200mm f2.8 G Master is Sony’s professional large aperture telephoto zoom lens for their Alpha mirrorless cameras. As such it is one of the most important lenses in their line-up and highly desirable to portrait and wedding photographers, as well as anyone shooting close-range sports or...

We've established that this lens, like the several lenses we tested from its GM family, has all the makings of what makes a fantastic, must-buy lens. And it is... a fantastic, must-buy lens, that is, but only if you absolutely need to feel that gap in your arsenal.


The Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS is an impressive piece of equipment. The broader center-zone is especially outstanding when keeping in mind that the lens has been tested on a 42mp sensor. The far corners could be better at 70mm f/2.8 and 200mm f/2.8 but that's usually not an issue in real life.

The Digital Picture

For a great many photographers, professional and amateur-alike, a 70-200mm lens represents the longest focal length f/2.8 aperture lens they can afford. But thankfully, the versatility afforded by a 70-200mm f/2.8 stabilized lens is immense.

this lens is very rarely off my camera and is my go to lens. In fact it is also my walk around lens, the ability to swop from portrait to landscape within this focal range is of primary importance to me and this lens delivers it all.


I've had my lens for nearly 3 years now and its perfect for my needs. I shoot sports but also use it for odd potrait. I find it feels well balanced on the alpha series of cameras and I can't think of a time I've had to use the tripod collar. I love that its internal zoom.

Really pleased with my purchase its fast, sharp and gives great bokeh. A little heavy but you must expect that for a lens such as this. I was really surprised how often I use it for example I am using for portraits and also landscape - love it.

Best all around lens out's an amazing lens that produces great sharp pictures.


I bought the lens about a month ago and very pleased. Images are excellent as expected from the Sony GM range. The focusing motor is not as quiet as the 100-400 and 200-600, and you can hear and feel it move but works fine.


I purchased this lens recently and use it primarily for wildlife and birds in flight. In many cases, I have attached the 1.4 TC. Both with and without the teleconverter the lens produces extremely sharp photos on a consistent basis.

Wex Photo Video

Without doubt the best 70-200mm lens that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.


I bought this lens over a week ago for a trip in Tanzania, coupled with the A7rIII the resulting shots are fantastic. This lens is sharp, fast with beautiful bokeh isolating some of the subject bringing the images to life. Videos also comes out great.


I bought this lens for sport and the very next day took it to a horse show. So glad I did. It hardly missed a shot and when it did it was operator error.

Wex Photo Video

Got this one paired up with my A73 ready for some action photography. Loving Sony's gear!!
