This telephoto zoom lens is designed for Sony full-frame and APS-C E-mount mirrorless cameras, and it’s a clear choice for sports, wildlife, and event photography. The wide f/2.8, 11-blade aperture creates the smoothest bokeh and performs optimally in low light. Plus, you can take this lens anywhere—it’s dust and moisture sealed.
The advanced optics in this lens include four extra-low dispersion elements, two Super ED elements, and three aspherical elements. One XA element takes care of astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations, while Sony’s Nano AR Coating handles lens flare, ghosting, and reflections. You’ll be left with incredible color fidelity and contrast.
Autofocus is accurate, fast, and nearly silent during still photography and video alike because of Sony’s double-linear ring and Super Sonic Wave Motor system. The Focus Hold Button makes it easy to maintain focus once you’ve found it.
Optical SteadyShot, Sony’s image stabilization system, makes handheld shooting at slow shutter speeds result in crisp shots. It has two modes to choose from to help you optimize: Mode 1 works with most shooting situations, and Mode 2 stabilizes while you’re panning. When combined with a camera that has sensor-shift type stabilization you’ll get incredible control over your blur and bokeh.
Pair this with Sony’s 1.4x teleconverter for a 98–280mm, or Sony’s 2x teleconverter for a 140–400mm optic.
