Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6G SSM II

Available Today

The Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6G SSM II is a long range telephoto lens for Sony A-mount cameras and update to the original Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6G SSM. Key features include:

  • Super Telephoto Zoom: The full-frame compatible 70-400mm focal length enables capturing of subjects at a great distance. The f/4-5.6 aperture is fast enough for normal daylight use, but probably a bit too slow for low or indoor lighting.
  • SSM Motor with Improved AF Performance: The Super Sonic wave autofocus motor is powered by piezoelectric elements that change shape when voltage is applied, allowing fast, responsive performance. While its predecessor offered decent AF performance, the version II features an LSI drive circuit that makes object tracking performance four times faster.
  • G Series Optics: The advanced 18 elements in 12 groups optical formula features two ED elements that minimize chromatic aberrations, while the internal focusing design allows for faster performance.
  • Three Focus Hold Buttons: With any A-mount camera, pressing one of the buttons holds your focus point. However, on advanced models like the Sony Alpha A99, you can program these buttons to perform additional functions.
