New Delhi: Sony India announced the newest lens in their G Master lineup – the FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II, which is designed to deliver an extraordinary combination of resolution and bokeh as well as unequalled AF (autofocus) performance known to Sony’s G Master design.

 “We at Sony are always keen to develop and evolve our G Master lineup by introducing new and innovative lens models by incorporating feedback from users across the world, including leading photography professionals. The new FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II is not only lightweight but offers outstanding handling in any shooting situation,” said Mr. Mukesh Srivastava, Head of Digital Imaging Business at Sony India. “The newest addition to our G Master series is revolutionary and will be a perfect addition to any creator’s telephoto kit who is looking to enhance their gear potential for both stills and video content creation.”

Designed to perfectly pair with Sony’s E-mount camera bodies, the FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II not only offers outstanding optical quality and advanced AF performance, but it is the lightest1 F2.8 70-200 mm zoom in the world to allow for unprecedented shooting flexibility and freedom. Sony continues to strengthen the Alpha System with this newest addition to the broadest selection of mirrorless lenses on the market as the 65th lens in its E-mount lens lineup.

1.     Constant F2.8 70-200 mm telephoto zoom for high resolution and clear image quality

The new FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II delivers outstanding image quality with high resolution and clarity. Users can expect a clean and clear image from corner-to-corner throughout the entire zoom range, even when the lens is wide open. Thanks to the two aspherical lens elements, including one XA (extreme aspherical) element manufactured to 0.01-micron surface precision, the FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II effectively controls distance-related aberration variations to ensure outstanding resolution throughout the image area. The FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II also employs two ED (extra-low dispersion) spherical glass elements and two Super ED spherical glass elements to significantly reduce chromatic aberration without color bleeding. This lens also includes an ED aspherical element for the first time in an Alpha system lens, which simultaneously suppresses chromatic and spherical aberration, common issues in other telephoto lenses.

Smooth, beautiful bokeh is made possible by a large F2.8 maximum aperture and a newly developed 11-blade circular aperture unit. In addition, the lens’ advanced optical design including XA elements thoroughly suppresses the unwanted ‘onion ring’ effect further enhancing the bokeh. The FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II also offers excellent close-up performance with deep bokeh. The minimum focusing distance is 15.7 inches (0.4 meters) at 70 mm and 32.3 inches (0.82 meters) at 200 mm. Maximum magnification achieves 0.3x. Moreover, the FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II can be easily paired with a high-performance 1.4x or 2.0x teleconverter3 to extend the lens’ focal length to 400 mm[4] at an F5.6 aperture, all while maintaining its G Master quality.

To avoid any unwanted flare and ghosting in tricky lighting conditions, Sony’s original Nano AR Coating II produces a uniform anti-reflection coating on the surface of the lens. In addition, the FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II’s optical design also effectively suppresses internal reflections to improve clarity.
