Sony 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS II First Impressions: Fastest Auto-Focus Ever!

Sony has pulled the curtains back on the newest member of its G Master lineup of lenses, the FE 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS II zoom lens. The company touts that the new lens is the lightest large-aperture telephoto zoom lens out in the market at 1,045 grams, allowing for improved shooting flexibility and freedom.

"The FE 70-200mm f2.8 GM OSS II is lightweight and offers outstanding handling in any shooting situation," said Yasufumi Machitani, General Manager of Sony Asia Pacific’s Digital Imaging Division. "The newest addition to our G Master series will make a perfect telephoto addition to any creator’s kit who is looking to maximise their gear potential for both stills and video."

This new model uses four extreme dynamic linear motors for fast and precise autofocus (AF), with Sony claiming that the AF performance is up to three times faster than the competition and four times faster than its previous model.
