The Sony 70-400mm f4-5.6 G SSM II Lens joins the Sony G “Gold” professional series of Sony lenses offering exceptional image and build quality with extra features for additional creative control. The Sony 70-400mm telephoto zoom lens is ideal for capturing wildlife and action-packed sports. The Super Sonic Motor (SSM) offers fast, quiet, smooth and accurate focusing with manual focus override, allowing you to focus without using the AF/MF switch and by simply turning the focus ring.

Key Features:
This 35MM Full Frame lens works with Sony a cameras
ED glass elements effectively suppress aberration
Nano AR coating reduces ghosting and flare
9-blade circular aperture for attractive defocusing
SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) for fast, silent autofocus
Focus hold and focus range limiter for precision control
70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM II Super Telephoto Zoom (SAL70400G2)
The 2nd edition of this popular super telephoto zoom now has a Nano AR Coating to reduce flare and even faster autofocus subject tracking - ideal for wildlife shots.

See the difference with G Lens
Renowned for their descriptive power, G Series lenses maintain excellent peripheral light characteristics and maximum contrast even at the edges of the frame.

Smooth defocusing
Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 9-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or 'bokeh'.

Refined optical performance
Nano AR Coating reduces unwanted reflections to control flare and ghosting. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements minimise aberration throughout the image.

Even faster autofocus
Faster autofocus subject tracking, internal focusing, and built-in SSM (Super Sonicwave Motor) ensure agile, silent and responsive focusing when you need it most.

Say goodbye to blur
Pair the lens with a camera by Sony featuring built-in SteadyShot image stabilisation and you’ll enjoy smooth, blur-free results when shooting handheld.
