This lens covers an extremely wide telephoto range with ample brightness that could take you from an elegant 70mm portrait to a stunning 400mm wildlife shot in an instant without having to change lenses and potentially miss a great shot. Two ED glass elements delivering excellent sharpness and contrast right out to the edges of the image at all focal lengths.
The f/4-5.6 aperture enables shooting at higher shutter speeds to freeze sports action.
Sony's G-Series lenses are designed for maximum descriptive power, maintaining excellent peripheral light characteristics and maximizing contrast even at the edges of the frame.
With the ability to focus as closely as 5 feet (1.5m), this telephoto lens also lets you move in for dramatic shots of people, natural subjects and close-up details.
The lens enables to you firmly lock in focus for creative control. Focus range limiter can be set to speed auto-focus response. Focus Hold also enables image preview with the α900 D-SLR.
Focus is accomplished by moving an internal element group, so focus is faster.
Compatible with optional Sony SAL14TC (1.4x) which extends focal length to 560mm (35mm equivalent when used with APS-C format cameras: 840mm) and SAL20TC (2.0x) teleconverters which extends focal length to 800mm (35mm equivalent when used with APS-C format cameras: 1200mm). Teleconverters are compatible with manual focus only.
The 5.7x zoom range goes all the way from 70mm, suitable for portraits and other medium-angle shots, to a super-telephoto 400mm.
Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements minimize chromatic aberration for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.
Works with the SteadyShot® image stabilization built into Sony α D-SLRs.
The SAL-70400G incorporates 18 elements in 12 groups for high optical precision from the center of the image all the way to the corners.
For reliable operation, the manual focus ring does not rotate in auto-focus mode.
This superb 70-400mm zoom lens is an excellent choice for a wide range of medium to long-distance telephoto applications. (35mm equivalent when used with APS-C format cameras: 105-600mm.)
SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) is supremely responsive: faster, smoother, quieter focusing.
0.27x maximum magnification.
An easy-grip focus ring on the lens barrel gives you a solid "hands-on" feel in manual focusing.
Because the aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect. The lens features nine aperture blades.
Supplied accessories. Carrying case, lens caps and petal shaped lens hood.
