The Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM M2 Lens is an evolved and improved telephoto zoom lens for professionals. It is lighter than its predecessor but boasts performance improvements in every area of operation.

This new version of Sony's popular 70-200mm lens delivers increased sharpness with a minimum of aberrations by an optical design that includes an XA element, an aspherical element, two extra-low dispersion aspherical elements, two extra-low dispersion elements, and two Super ED elements. This optical design also features Sony's latest generation Nano AR II Coating that reduces reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and colour.

Four XL Linear motors make autofocus fast, precise, and highly responsive for stationary subjects and for tracking, with two motors driving each of the internal focusing groups. The floating focus design divides the elements into two independently controlled groups for increased responsiveness, for both still and video applications, with speeds up to four times faster than its previous version design. The FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS II lens is the first large-aperture tele-zoom lens with four linear AF actuators, which work to reduce focus breathing and focus shift while zooming. Direct manual focus is available full-time, and linear response manual focus function changes the manual focus response based on the focus ring rotations speed.s

Optimized for speed, this lens maintains a fast and constant f/2.8 aperture through the zoom range for easy use in low-light conditions, as well as for greater control over shallow depth of field. Smooth bokeh is achieved by the eleven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth out-of-focus areas. The newly developed aperture drive unit provides fast yet quiet operation.

The white lens barrel features three programmable focus control buttons, an AF/MF switch, a focus range limiter switch, and Optical Steady Shot control switches. Image stabilization combats camera shake, especially at longer focal lengths, and the added Mode 3 function increases framing stability when shooting moving subjects.

For durability and working in harsh environments, the lens is dust and moisture resistant, and the front element features a fluorine coating to resist water and oil. The lens features a removable rotating tripod collar and a lens hood that provides access to rotate a separately available accessory polarizing filter.

Unprecedented image quality

Image quality is superb throughout the zoom range at all focusing distances. Two aspherical elements, one an XA (extreme aspherical) type, ensure high resolution throughout the image area. Two ED (extra-low dispersion) glass elements, two Super ED glass elements, and one ED aspherical element minimise chromatic aberration, while Sony’s Nano AR Coating II subdues flare and ghosting.

Exquisite G Master bokeh

Beautiful G Master bokeh is achieved through advanced optical design, an F2.8 aperture, and a new 11-blade aperture unit. An XA element manufactured to 0.01-micron surface precision suppresses onion ring bokeh, and the new aperture unit helps to deliver natural circular bokeh. Close-up bokeh is superb too, with a minimum focusing distance of just 0.4 meters at 70mm and 0.82 meters at 200mm.

Fast, precise AF supports creative shooting

Four of Sony’s original XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors deliver high thrust efficiency that boosts AF speed by up to 4x compared to the previous model. When tracking an approaching short-distance runner, for example, tracking while zooming is improved by approx. 30% compared to the previous model greatly increasing chances of getting the shot.

Professional movie capability

The latest lens technology reduces focus breathing, focus shift when zooming, and axis shift when zooming. XD Linear Motors and a new aperture drive unit contribute to quiet operation. This lens even has independent control rings for focus, zoom, and iris, with a click on/off switch for the aperture ring. Sony’s Linear Response MF feature ensures responsive, direct manual focus control.

The lightest in its class

This lens offers outstanding optical quality and AF in the world’s lightest1 F2.8 70-200mm zoom. XD Linear Motors and magnesium alloy barrel components result in an overall weight of just 1045 grams; approx. 29% lighter than the previous model. Advanced design improves balance, while a constant barrel length further contributes to easy, agile handling.

Professional control and reliability

Flexible focus control is provided by features such as Full-time DMF, Linear Response MF, and a focus-range limiter. An aperture ring with switchable clicks and an iris lock provides extra exposure control. MODE 1, MODE 2, and MODE 36 optical image stabilisation ensure sharp images, and a dust and moisture resistant design plus fluorine-coated front element maximise reliability in tough environments.
