Product Details:

Super Telephoto Zoom - 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.)

Uncommonly fast aperture. - The f/4-5.6 aperture enables shooting at higher shutter speeds to freeze sports action.

Superb flexibility. - The 5.7x zoom range goes all the way from 70mm, suitable for portraits and other medium-angle shots, to a super-telephoto 400mm.

G Series Optical Performance. - 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.

SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor). - SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) is supremely responsive: faster, smoother, quieter focusing.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) - Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements minimize chromatic aberration for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.

Superb Minimum Focusing Distance. - 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.

0.27x maximum magnification.

In-Camera Image Stabilization. - Works with the SteadyShot image stabilization built into Sony alpha D-SLRs.

Three Focus Hold Buttons. - 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 alpha 900 D-SLR.

Smooth Manual Focusing. - An easy-grip focus ring on the lens barrel gives you a solid "hands-on" feel in manual focusing.

Multi-Element Design. - 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.

Internal Focusing. - Focus is accomplished by moving an internal element group, so focus is faster.

Circular Aperture. - 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.

Auto Clutch. - For reliable operation, the manual focus ring does not rotate in auto-focus mode.

Works with Optional Teleconverters. - 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.

Supplied accessories. - Supplied accessories. Carrying case, lens caps and petal shaped lens hood.
