Product description
Announced Nov 20, 2014

The Sony 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G SSM II is a premium-grade telephoto zoom lens designed for use on Sony's full-frame and APS-C format SLT cameras, covering an effective focal length range of 105-450mm on APS-C . Although its focal range and aperture are more typically characteristics of low-end 'kit' zooms, the 'G' designation reveals that this lens is a cut above. The 70-300mm features Sony's SSM ultrasonic-type autofocus with a focus-hold button, and its optical construction includes extra low-dispersion glass. The 'Mark II' model has a Nano AR coating to reduce ghosting and flare, 4x faster tracking performance, and dust and moisture sealing.
