Overview

This Sony G Series 70-400mm super telephoto zoom lens is an excellent choice for a wide range of medium to long-distance telephoto applications. Sony G Series lenses are designed for maximum descriptive power, maintaining excellent peripheral light characteristics and maximizing edge-to-edge contrast. Featuring Sony's new Nano AR Coating with nano-precision structure, you'll achieve high-quality images with reduced ghosting and flare. Thanks to a new LSI drive circuit, the SAL70400G2 lens offers faster, more accurate autofocusing, enhanced object-tracking capabilities and excellent response when shooting moving subjects. And with an extra-fast f/4-5.6 aperture, it's a great lens for shooting at higher shutter speeds—perfect for sports and action photography. (35mm equivalent = 105-600mm with APS-C format cameras.)

Features

Nano AR Coating
Sony’s Nano AR Coating with nano-precision structure contributes to high-quality images with reduced ghosting and flare. This proprietary Sony coating technology features aligned microscopic asperities that reduce the effects of the reflective interfacial boundary on the surface of the lens, thus dramatically reducing the amount of undesirable reflections entering the lens.

Super Telephoto Zoom.
This superb 70-400mm zoom lens is an excellent choice for a wide range of medium to long-distance telephoto applications. (35mm equivalent when used with APS-C format cameras: 105-600mm.)

SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor).
SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) is supremely responsive: faster, smoother, quieter focusing.

0.27x maximum magnification.
0.27x maximum magnification.

Smooth Manual Focusing.
An easy-grip focus ring on the lens barrel gives you a solid hands-on" feel in manual focusing."

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. The lens features nine aperture blades.

High-performance AF with enhanced object-tracking capabilities
Thanks to a new LSI drive circuit, the SAL70400G2 offers faster, more accurate autofocusing with four times (TBD) faster object tracking performance than the current 70-400mm F4 – 5.6 G SSM lens. The SSM (Super Sonic Wave Motor) takes advantage of piezoelectric elements that change shape when voltage is applied to deliver ideal lens attributes such as a large rotational distance at low speeds and swift start/stop response. The smooth, high-speed performance contributes to excellent response when shooting moving subjects.

Superb flexibility.
The 5.7x zoom range goes all the way from 70mm, suitable for portraits and other medium-angle shots, to a super-telephoto 400mm.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion)
Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements minimize chromatic aberration for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.

In-Camera Image Stabilization.
Works with the SteadyShot® image stabilization built into Sony α D-SLRs.

Multi-Element Design.
The SAL-70400G incorporates 18 elements in 12 groups for high optical precision from the center of the image all the way to the corners.

Auto Clutch.
For reliable operation, the manual focus ring does not rotate in auto-focus mode.

Uncommonly fast aperture.
The f/4-5.6 aperture enables shooting at higher shutter speeds to freeze sports action.

G Series Optical Performance.
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.

Superb Minimum Focusing Distance.
With the ability to focus as closely as 5 feet (1.5m), this telephoto lens also lets you move in for dramatic shots of people, natural subjects and close-up details.

Three Focus Hold Buttons.
The lens enables to you firmly lock in focus for creative control. Focus range limiter can be set to speed auto-focus response. Focus Hold also enables image preview with the α900 D-SLR.

Internal Focusing.
Focus is accomplished by moving an internal element group, so focus is faster.

Works with Optional Teleconverters.
Compatible with optional Sony SAL14TC (1.4x) which extends focal length to 560mm (35mm equivalent when used with APS-C format cameras: 840mm) and SAL20TC (2.0x) teleconverters which extends focal length to 800mm (35mm equivalent when used with APS-C format cameras: 1200mm). Teleconverters are compatible with manual focus only.
