FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS
Estimated Shipping: February 23, 2024
Lightweight and ideally balanced telephoto 300mm F2.8
The SEL300F28GM is the lightest large-aperture telephoto prime lens in its class, delivering outstanding optical performance and rendering plus astonishingly fast, precise AF in a versatile lens that weighs just 51.9 oz. (1470 grams). The lens has been designed so that its weight is not concentrated near the front, for ideal balance. This can minimize stress and fatigue during long handheld shooting sessions.
Breathtaking G MasterTM image quality right out to the edges of the frame
An innovative optical design that includes three Super ED (extra-low dispersion) glass elements and one ED glass element effectively subdues axial and lateral chromatic aberration. Outstanding resolution and contrast are maintained right out to the image edges, which also allows for more flexible cropping and editing.
Extraordinary resolution and bokeh to emphasize the subject
The gorgeous and creamy bokeh allows the use of narrow depth of field to make subjects stand out from the background. In addition to Super ED (extra-low dispersion) and ED elements in a new optical design, each lens is individually calibrated during manufacture to optimize bokeh quality. An 11-blade circular aperture mechanism contributes to smooth, rounded bokeh.
Fast, precise AF brings out the full potential of advanced cameras
The lens maximizes the speed potential of high-performance cameras, making it easy to capture important moments in dynamic sports action or fast-moving wildlife scenes. Two high thrust XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors and an advanced control algorithm have been specially fine-tuned for fast response. Additionally, AF tracking speed and precision are maintained even when shooting continuous bursts.
The lightest in its class and ideally balanced for precise, agile handling
An optical design that includes Super ED (extra-low dispersion) glass elements reduces the subjective weight by using fewer elements near the front of the lens, so that the weight is not concentrated at the front. This optimizes balance and reduces moment of inertia, allowing precise, agile lens movement and panning while shooting.
Optical SteadyShot™ stabilization for sharp handheld telephoto images
Built-in optical image stabilization makes it easier to shoot sharp images handheld at telephoto focal lengths. MODE 2 offers ideal stabilization for panned shots, while MODE 3 provides enhanced stabilization for dynamic, unpredictable sports action. Additionally, compatible cameras provide detailed communication and control that can effectively manage blur.
Function ring provides direct access to power focus or frame size selection
A programmable function ring directly controls power focus or Full-frame/APS-C selection. Power Focus (default) initiates constant speed focusing in the selected rotation direction. Or select Full-frame/APS-C for instant selection of frame size by rotating the ring.
