Product description
Announced Feb 20, 2013

An upgraded version of an older lens, the 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM II offers faster, more responsive autofocus (4x quicker, according to Sony) compared to its predecessor. Optical design remains the same (18 elements in 12 groups), but now with the addition of Sony's Nano AR Coating for improved flare and ghosting resistance. Compatible with 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. This makes it a great choice for wildlife and sports photography.
