Sony 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM Overview
The 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM is a medium-to-long telephoto zoom for Sony's full-frame and APS-C format SLT cameras. This lens covers a medium to long telephoto focal range, equivalent to 105-600mm on APS-C, making it a great choice for wildlife and sports photography. In February 2013 this lens was replaced by the 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM II, which uses the same 18 elements in 12 groups optical design, but with the addition of Nano AR coating for improved flare and ghosting resistance. Sony claims that the new lens's autofocus is 4x quicker than this older version, too.
