Exquisite detail from 70 to 350 mm
Optimized optical and mechanical design offers outstanding super-telephoto zoom performance for APS-C bodies (105-525 mm equiv.). Impressive G Lens quality is maintained throughout the zoom range right out to the image edges. All of this is packed into a compact, mobile 5x super-telephoto zoom lens with built-in optical image stabilization.
G Lens quality all the way to 350 mm (525 mm equiv.)
One aspherical element and three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements in a precision optical design suppress aberration throughout the zoom range, including chromatic aberration that can be an issue at super-telephoto focal lengths. Excellent sharpness and rendering are achieved at all zoom settings, throughout the image area. Gorgeous telephoto G Lens bokeh is another advantage.
Compact, mobile 5x super-telephoto zoom
Although it offers a big 5x zoom range, this compact lens weighs in at just 22.05 oz, enhancing the mobility of the entire camera system. 70-350 mm (105-525 mm equiv.) is an ideal range for a wide spectrum of subjects. Built-in optical image stabilization makes it easy to capture crisp, blur-free imagery even when shooting handheld at super-telephoto focal lengths.
XD Linear Motor in an APS-C lens
Sony’s original XD (extreme dynamic) linear motor technology has been applied in an APS-C lens, offering top-class autofocus performance that is fast, precise, and tenacious. Coupled with the advanced real-time AF capability of the latest compact APS-C bodies, you have a high-performance, easy-handling system for landscapes, wildlife, and more.
Control, reliability, and mobility for any situation
An Optical SteadyShot switch, customizable focus hold button, and zoom lock switch add control convenience to a lens that also features a dust and moisture resistant design for high reliability in challenging environmental conditions. All of this complements the lens’s portability, making pro-class control and dependability available wherever you go.
Extended 70 mm to 350 mm zoom range
This lens’s 70-350 mm (105-525 mm 35 mm full-frame equivalent) zoom range offers plenty of coverage for a wide spectrum of subjects, from landscapes to wildlife and more.
Gorgeous G Lens bokeh
A circular aperture mechanism enhances bokeh quality, making it possible to take advantage of the narrow depth of field available with a super-telephoto zoom lens to create impressive images with smooth, gorgeous G Lens bokeh.
Versatile, customizable focus hold button
A conveniently located focus hold button provides convenient focus hold control. The button can also be customized via a camera menu that allows assignment of other functions, such as Right/Left Eye Select, as required.
Zoom lock switch
Engage the zoom lock switch to prevent the lens from extending under its own weight during transportation.
Fast auto/manual focus-switching
An AF/MF focus mode switch on the lens makes it easy to quickly switch between auto and manual focus to respond to changing shooting needs.
Dust and moisture-resistant design
A dust and moisture resistant design provides the reliability needed for outdoor use in challenging conditions.
