Sony FE 300mm f2.8 GM OSS Lens
Experience the future of telephoto photography with the Sony FE 300mm f2.8 GM OSS Lens, a marvel of optical engineering and precision. This lightweight and ideally balanced telephoto 300mm F2.8 lens redefines your photographic capabilities. It's the lightest large-aperture telephoto prime lens in its class, weighing in at just 51.9 oz. (1470 grams). This lens offers a perfect balance that minimizes stress and fatigue during extended handheld shooting sessions.
Breathtaking G Master Image Quality
The Sony FE 300mm f2.8 GM OSS Lens boasts breathtaking G Master image quality that extends right to the edges of your frame. An innovative optical design, featuring three Super ED (extra-low dispersion) glass elements and one ED glass element, effectively eliminates axial and lateral chromatic aberrations. This ensures outstanding resolution and contrast throughout the entire frame, allowing for more flexible cropping and editing.
Extraordinary Resolution and Bokeh
But it's not just about resolution; this lens also delivers extraordinary bokeh, creating a stunning background blur that makes your subjects truly stand out. The creamy and gorgeous bokeh is enhanced by the Super ED and ED elements in the optical design. Each lens is individually calibrated during manufacture to optimize bokeh quality, and an 11-blade circular aperture mechanism produces smooth, rounded bokeh.
Fast, Precise Autofocus
Fast, precise autofocus is another hallmark of the Sony FE 300mm f2.8 GM OSS Lens. It maximizes the speed potential of high-performance cameras, ensuring you can capture crucial moments in dynamic sports action or fast-moving wildlife scenes. Two high thrust XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors and an advanced control algorithm work together to provide a rapid response. Even when shooting continuous bursts, AF tracking speed and precision are consistently maintained.
Ideally Balanced for Precise Handling
Handling this lens is a breeze, thanks to its balanced design. The optical layout, with Super ED glass elements, reduces the subjective weight, optimizing balance and reducing the moment of inertia. This results in precise, agile lens movement and panning during shooting.
Optical SteadyShot™ Stabilization
For sharp handheld telephoto images, the Sony FE 300mm f2.8 GM OSS Lens features Optical SteadyShot™ stabilization. This built-in image stabilization makes it easier to capture sharp images at telephoto focal lengths. It offers different modes, including ideal stabilization for panned shots and enhanced stabilization for dynamic sports action.
Nano AR Coating II
Sony's Nano AR Coating II suppresses reflections, flare, and ghosting, ensuring your images remain clear and crisp even in challenging lighting conditions. Reflections inside the lens barrel are meticulously controlled for the best results.
Function Ring for Control
With a function ring that provides direct access to power focus or frame size selection, you have more control at your fingertips. Power Focus allows for constant speed focusing, while Full-frame/APS-C selection is easily accessible.
Full-time Direct Manual Focus (DMF)
Full-time Direct Manual Focus (DMF) lets you engage manual focus instantly, even while shooting in AF-C mode. This is incredibly useful for correcting focus or focusing beyond a set range limit. Releasing the MF ring restores AF function without a hitch.
Precise Manual Focus Ring
The precise, repeatable, and linear response manual focus ring ensures that you have full control over your focus, making it immediate and precise for both stills and movies. Additionally, four customizable focus hold buttons and a focus range limiter switch provide convenience and versatility when shooting in any orientation.
Rear-mounted Drop-in Filters
This lens supports rear-mounted drop-in filters, including standard 40.5 mm diameter drop-in ND filters and Sony's VF-DCPL1 circular polarizer.
High AF Tracking Performance with Teleconverters
Even with the optional SEL14TC (1.4x) or SEL20TC (2.0x) teleconverters, the Sony FE 300mm f2.8 GM OSS Lens maintains high AF tracking performance, ensuring you never miss a moment.
Dust and Moisture Resistant
Designed for robust reliability, this lens is dust and moisture resistant. Its internal components are constructed from durable magnesium alloy, maximizing durability while reducing weight.
Fluorine Front Element Coating
Lastly, the front lens element features a fluorine coating, repelling water, oil, and contaminants. This makes it easy to clean and maintain, so you can keep capturing stunning images with ease.
With the ALC-SH175 lens hood and padded soft case included, your investment is well-protected. The lens hood is designed for durability and low weight, while the soft case ensures your lens stays safe during transport. A lens strap is also provided for added convenience.
