    XA element for breathtaking resolution

    XA element for breathtaking resolution

    Superior G Master resolution is achieved throughout the entire 70mm to 200mm zoom range at all focusing distances. Two aspherical lens elements, one an XA (extreme aspherical) type manufactured to 0.01-micron surface precision, effectively control distance-related aberration so that outstanding resolution is ensured throughout the image area.

    Aberration controlled for superb images

    Aberration controlled for superb images

    Two spherical elements that use ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, plus two more that use Super ED glass significantly reduce chromatic aberration for sharp reproduction without colour bleeding. ED aspherical element is also used, simultaneously suppressing chromatic and spherical aberration that are common issues in telephoto lenses.

    Excellent close-up performance

    Excellent close-up performance

    This lens offers excellent close-up performance for a zoom. Minimum focus is 0.4 meters (1.32 ft) at 70mm and 0.82 (2.69 ft) meters at 200mm. Maximum magnification is 0.3x. Deep bokeh at F2.8 adds extra expressive close-up capability. Floating focus ensures pinpoint sharpness even at minimum focus distance, while inner focus makes it easy to get close.

    Nano AR Coating II for maximum clarity

    Nano AR Coating II for maximum clarity

    Nano AR Coating II produces a uniform anti-reflection coating on lens surfaces, effectively subduing flare and ghosting. The lens’s optical design also effectively suppresses internal reflections that can reduce clarity when shooting landscapes or sports.

    Stunning G Master bokeh

    Stunning G Master bokeh

    An XA element manufactured to 0.01-micron surface precision suppresses onion ring bokeh, while precise spherical aberration control boosts bokeh quality. ED (extra-low dispersion) and Super ED glass spherical elements, plus one ED aspherical element, effectively minimise colour bleeding for beautiful bokeh without unnatural colouration.

    New high-performance aperture unit

    New high-performance aperture unit

    Even the aperture unit in this lens has been refined to meet the highest G Master quality standards. A newly developed 11-blade aperture unit that remains almost perfectly circular from wide open to stopped down by two stops helps to deliver the kind of natural-looking circular bokeh users have come to expect from a G Master design.

    Fast, precise autofocus

    Fast, precise autofocus

    This lens works with α series bodies to reliably focus on and smoothly track even fast-moving subjects. Four high-thrust XD Linear Motors and advanced control technology deliver up to 4x faster AF than the SEL70200GM. Focus tracking capability while zooming is improved by approximately 30% compared to the SEL70200GM.

    Learn more about XD Linear Motors

    High-performance teleconverters

    High-performance teleconverters

    Optional high-performance 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters extend the lens’s focal length to a maximum of 400mm (600mm on an APS-C body) at F5.6. Full G Master quality is maintained when the teleconverters are in use. Maximum aperture with the 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters is F4 and F5.6, respectively.

    Designed for refined movie imagery

    Designed for refined movie imagery

    The latest lens design technology reduces focus breathing, focus shift when zooming, and axis shift when zooming. XD Linear Motors and a newly developed aperture drive unit also contribute to quiet operation, greatly reducing noise and vibration that can interfere with movie recording.

    Versatile manual movie control

    Versatile manual movie control

    Independent control rings for focus, zoom, and iris, allow precise manual operation in movie applications. The aperture ring has a click on/off switch that allows the aperture click switch stops to be turned ON for tactile feedback when shooting stills, or OFF for smooth, silent iris control when shooting movies.

    The world’s lightest for superior handling

    The world’s lightest for superior handling

    This unique lens offers outstanding optical quality and AF in the world’s lightest F2.8 70-200mm zoom. XD Linear Motors and magnesium alloy barrel components result in an overall weight of just 1045 grams (36.9 oz) ; approximately 29% lighter than the previous model. Advanced design improves overall balance and handling.

    Iris lock stops unwanted exposure shifts

    Iris lock stops unwanted exposure shifts

    An iris lock switch prevents unwanted exposure changes while shooting. When locked, the aperture is either locked at the [A] position or can be rotated between any of the manual settings from F2.8 to F22. When unlocked, the aperture ring can be rotated between [A] and any of the manual settings without limitation.

    Full-time DMF supports pinpoint focus

    Full-time DMF supports pinpoint focus

    When the Full-time DMF is ON, manual focus is automatically engaged when the focus ring is operated, even in AF-C mode. This allows quick correction when autofocus targets the wrong subject, and is a great way to refine focus after initial autofocus. Full-time DMF is not affected by focus-range limiter switch settings.

    Natural, linear manual focus response

    Natural, linear manual focus response

    Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually while shooting stills or movies. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise when shooting stills or movies.

    Optical image stabilization with MODE 3

    Optical image stabilization with MODE 3

    Built-in optical image stabilisation makes it easy to shoot sharp images handheld. MODE 2 stabilization is optimized for panning shots, while MODE 3 emphasizes framing stability when shooting dynamic, unpredictable motion. 5-axis image stabilisation becomes available when the lens is mounted on an α body that has in-body image stabilization.

    Dust and moisture resistant design

    Dust and moisture resistant design

    Dust and moisture resistance are notably improved compared to previous model. All seams are sealed, buttons and switches have silicone rubber gaskets, and a rubber ring seals the lens mount. The internal zoom mechanism further resists dust and moisture while maintaining a constant lens barrel length.
