Lens Description: This Sony G Series 70-400mm super telephoto zoom lens is an excellent choice for a wide range of medium to long-distance telephoto applications. Sony G Series lenses are designed for maximum descriptive power, maintaining excellent peripheral light characteristics and maximizing edge-to-edge contrast. Featuring Sony's new Nano AR Coating with nano-precision structure, you'll achieve high-quality images with reduced ghosting and flare. Thanks to a new LSI drive circuit, the SAL70400G2 lens offers faster, more accurate autofocusing, enhanced object-tracking capabilities and excellent response when shooting moving subjects. And with an extra-fast f/4-5.6 aperture, it's a great lens for shooting at higher shutter speeds—perfect for sports and action photography. (35mm equivalent = 105-600mm with APS-C format cameras.)
