Sony FE 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G OSS Lens - SEL70300G

Prepare for maximum impact with this Sony 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 E-mount lens. It brings your subjects closer to you so that you can take photos of wildlife without disturbing them or focus on small objects a long way off. In combination with the optical SteadyShot image stabilization, this Sony telephoto lens ensures you get crisp, clear photos even when you're at maximum focal length.

This Sony zoom lens can also double up as a close-up portrait lens in the studio or outdoors thanks to the 70mm minimum focal length, but where it really shines is in the midrange and long focal lengths, producing breathtaking images in combination with your E-mount camera. You can adjust focus on the fly thanks to the manual focusing ring, but you can also rely on the rapid autofocus, which uses a near-silent motor to ensure you don't disturb wildlife. In addition, the four aspherical elements combined with optical lens coatings reduce the effects of chromatic aberrations, flare and ghosting so that you get a brilliant photo every time from this Sony 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 E-mount lens.


  • Full-frame 70-300mm G Series F4.5–5.6 G Telephoto zoom
    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. The SEL70300G offers high zoom and magnification for full-frame E-mount cameras equivalent to 70-300mm F4.5–5.6. In addition, when mounted to APS C cameras, the focal range can reach 105-450mm offering reach beyond previously available E-mount lenses
  • Nano AR Coating with nano-precision structure
    Sony's original Nano AR Coating technology produces a lens coating that features a precisely defined regular nano-structure that allows accurate light transmission while effectively suppressing reflections that can cause flare and ghosting. The reflection suppression characteristics of the Nano AR Coating are superior to conventional anti-reflective coatings, including coatings that use an irregular nano-structure, providing a notable improvement in clarity, contrast, and overall image quality
  • Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization
    Built-in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization helps to reduce camera shake, particularly in telephoto, close-up, and low-light situations where camera shake is most likely to affect image quality. OSS makes it easier to capture clear images when shooting handheld. A convenient on/off switch - on the lens itself - can be used to control internal image stabilization which speeds up operation as there is no need to access the camera menu
  • Class-leading close-up focusing capability less than 3' (0.9m)
    The SEL70300G telephoto zoom lens also features class-leading close-up performance, with a minimum focusing distance of less than 3 feet (0.9m) and a maximum magnification of 0.31x, making it an ideal choice for tele-macro photography. This outstanding close-up performance also factors into the lens' excellent corner-to-corner sharpness
  • 9-blade circular aperture
    The 9-blade circular aperture forms a nearly perfect circle to create a pleasing and beautifully round background defocus or bokeh effect, especially when the lens is wide open
  • 2x ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements
    As focal lengths get longer, lenses built with conventional optical glass have difficulties with chromatic aberration, and as a result images suffer from lower contrast, lower color quality, and lower resolution. To counter such problems, 2x ED glass elements are included in the SEL70300G. It dramatically improves chromatic aberration at telephoto ranges, and provides superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings
  • 4x Aspherical elements control spherical aberration and coma
    The SEL70300G has an innovative optical design to achieve clear, high-quality images by effectively minimizing distortion and chromatic aberration. A double-gauss configuration effectively suppresses field curvature and distortion, while a four precisely placed aspherical element control spherical aberration and coma for excellent optical characteristics right out to the image periphery. An aspherical element in a new optical design that controls all types of aberration (spherical, coma, distortion), rendering the subject with superior sharpness
  • Sophisticated, solid and reliable
    The exterior metal barrel and sealed buttons and rings Deliver outstanding operability and reliability in a design that resists the intrusion of dust and moisture which helps to ensure reliable operation in harsh outdoor conditions. Designed for reliability in a wide range of environments, the metal mount adds a sophisticated feel as well as solid durability
  • Linear actuator achieve fast, smooth, quiet autofocus
    A linear actuator and an inner focus mechanism are used for focus drive, resulting in fast, smooth, quiet focus operation. Lens noise pickup can be a problem when shooting movies, but with this lens operation is so smooth and quiet that autofocus can be used for shooting movies as well as stills
  • Enhanced operability w/ direct control
    The SEL70300G features convenient direct buttons and switches to enhance the ease and operability. These include a focus hold button, focus mode switch, focus range limiter, Optical SteadyShot switch and zoom lock switch
  • Focus hold button
    Once you've adjusted focus to where you want it, holding this button on the lens barrel will keep the lens locked to that focusing distance. The preview function can also be assigned to this button through the camera's custom settings
  • Focus range limiter
    This function allows you to set a limit on the focusing range which can save you time during auto focus operation - as the lens will not 'hunt' through the entire focusing range. Selections are ∞ (infinity) to 3 meters for medium to distant focusing, and FULL for full-range focusing
  • Zoom lock switch
    The zoom lock switch prevents unwanted lens extension during transportation
  • Focus-mode switch
    A conveniently located switch allows manual or auto focus to be easily selected while viewing through the camera's viewfinder
