Continuing the glorious traditions of the Minolta company, which had sunk into oblivion, the first-born of Sony's mirrorless TV range was released in a snow-white color of the case. Black only showed large zoom and focus rings, and even that because of rubberized overlays for better finger grip.
Before moving on to the photographic abilities of the lens, it is a sin not to single out its developed ergonomics in separate lines. A whole bunch of different controls have been successfully located on the Sony 70-200mm f/4 G OSS metal case: autofocus and stabilization selectors, focusing distance limiter, stabilization mode switch, and 3 more programmable keys (all buttons have only one preset function). In addition, the lens is protected from dust and moisture, which allows it to be used in a wide variety of weather conditions.
Superior G Lens
The advanced optical design and elements enclosed in this lightweight lens with constant f/4 aperture allow you to achieve expressive images, the quality of which is a famous distinguishing feature of the G lens range.
The maximum aperture f/4 is for telephoto working in the entire range of focal lengths. Moreover, at the very open hole, a shallow depth of field is provided, effectively separating the subject from the background. Glare in the blur zone is round, even if you cover slightly (up to f/5.6).
The Optical SteadyShot optical stabilizer compensates for camera shake and minimizes blurring when shooting handheld shots, allowing you to get sharp and clear shots when shooting in the telephoto range and shooting indoors in low light.
Optimum sharpness and defocusing in one lens
Amazing image clarity and excellent background blur thanks to AA (advanced aspherical) elements, ultra low dispersion glass (ED) elements, Nano AR coating and 9-bladed circular aperture.
