Product Details

Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G2 Super Telephoto Zoom Camera Lens, Model SAL70400G2

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
  • 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
  • Uncommonly fast aperture
    The f/4-5.6 aperture enables shooting at higher shutter speeds to freeze sports action
  • 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.)
  • 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
  • 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
  • SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor)
    SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) is supremely responsive: faster, smoother, quieter focusing
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion)
    Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements minimize chromatic aberration for sharp, clear images with well defined colors
  • 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
  • 0.27x maximum magnification
    0.27x maximum magnification
  • In-Camera Image Stabilization
    Works with the SteadyShot® image stabilization built into Sony a D-SLRs
  • 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 a900 D-SLR
  • Smooth Manual Focusing
    An easy-grip focus ring on the lens barrel gives you a solid hands-on" feel in manual focusing."
  • 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
  • Internal Focusing
    Focus is accomplished by moving an internal element group, so focus is faster
  • 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
  • Auto Clutch
    For reliable operation, the manual focus ring does not rotate in auto-focus mode
  • 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

A very good lens

By 

from Queens, NY, USA

Comments about Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G2 Super Telephoto Zoom Camera Lens:

I used the original 70-400mm on a couple of occasions and received the new one as a Christmas gift from my father. The quality is sharp and focuses much faster then the original model. Even at 400mm the images come out sharp and crisp. The only complaint I have is there is no lock on the lens when your walking. It will zoom all the way out to 400mm so be prepared.

Wonderful lens, poor paint finish

By 

from Houston, Texas

Comments about Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G2 Super Telephoto Zoom Camera Lens:

I had been using a borrowed SAL70400G so I was already aware of what a great, sharp lens this is. My new lens is used with the A77 II and the focus is fast and accurate. This is a winning combination for bird photography. I love the tracking and focusing features of the A77 II What I am terribly disappointed about is the white finish on the lens outside seems to be substandard. I have had it just about a month and already there are several deep scratches in the paint finish and the body material shows through. I am careful with my equipment; it is not due to abuse. The lens is stored properly and not banged around when in use.

Make sure you test it out

By 

from Long Island, NY

Comments about Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G2 Super Telephoto Zoom Camera Lens:

I ordered this lens from two different distributors. There was a monumental difference between the two. Obviously it didn't have anything to do with who sold it. They didn't manufacture it. The poor lens was soft all around. Seemed to have a focusing issue. Here's what you need to look for and expect with this lens. The better one, which I'm keeping, is unbelievably sharp when cropped to full size. It is hard to tell the difference between F5.6 and F8. That is a great feature because most lenses, including primes, need to be stopped down to obtain good clarity. It seems to nail the focus more consistently at 300mm than at 400mm. It is also "slightly" sharper at 300mm. I cropped the 300mm pics to the same size as the 400mm and 7/10 times they actually looked better. Now don't be mistaken. The 400mm shots were still as great. But some of the 300mm shots were just incredible. I cropped them as much as my computer allowed and they were still sharp. btw- the bokeh is creamy smooth on the good lens and completely harsh and jagged on the bad one. Yes, it's a little disappointing there can be that much of a difference between the lenses. One more exciting bit of info. My camera is the A58. This lens can only be better on the A99. Can't speak for the A77 since the image quality on the A58 is actually a little better per the online reviews. The purpose of this review is to let you know to expect greatness in this lens. If it doesn't "wow" you then return it and get another one. When you get one that performs the way it's supposed to, you will be smiling every day you use it. All of the other negatives such as the weight and flimsy hood will mean nothing when you see the pictures.

Great lens. Absolutely first class

By 

from Wilkesboro, NC

Comments about Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G2 Super Telephoto Zoom Camera Lens:

It is a very well built lens with super optics. Auto focus is fine. Great zoom range and really expect to get a lot of good wildlife photos with it. Works very well with both my A 900 and my A 99

Great Lens

By 

from Dawsonville, GA

Comments about Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G2 Super Telephoto Zoom Camera Lens:

This lens has the reach, sharpness, and bokeh that I wanted to compliment my Zeiss 24-70 for my a99. The two lenses effectively give me a range of 24 to 400 with two of the finest lenses in the market place today, bar none. The 70-400 is quick to focus, produces wonderful color and is a quality build. I would highly recommend this lens.
