    The SAL-70200G 70-200mm f/2.8 APO G(D) SSM Lens is a high-quality lens that employs supersonic-wave motor (SSM) technology for quieter, smoother AF operation. This G-Series zoom lens covers a broad range of frequent telephoto shooting situations. Its 35mm-equivalent range of 105-300mm zooming, fast f/2.8 aperture and quiet, high-speed SSM (SuperSonic-Wave Motor) auto-focus precision makes it ideal for long-distance sports and wildlife photography.

    With a full range of functions geared to the professional photographer, this lens provides sharp, color-free images across the entire film area at all apertures. High-quality multi-coatings increase transmittance and reduce flare to preserve contrast.

    SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor)
    A built-in lens motor for faster automatic focusing with high torque at low speed, quick start/stop response, and quiet, smooth operation.

    2 DMF (Direct Manual Focus) Modes
    Allow you to quickly revert to manual focus by just turning the manual focus ring of the lens.

    Internal Focusing System
    Internal lens elements move, so the overall length does not change — creating a zoom lens that focuses more quickly and doesn’t affect the balance of your camera.

    ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass
    Four precision ED Glass lenses correct chromatic aberrations and deliver visually accurate results even at full telephoto zoom extension.

    Versatile Focus Hold
    Three focus hold buttons in different lens locations, plus electronic slider focus range selector switch.

    Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 SSM G (SAL-70200G) – Review / Test Report by photozone.de

    The Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 SSM G is a very good lens that certainly deserves its “Gold” class designation. It is very sharp and contrasty across the board and vignetting, lateral CAs as well as distortions are generally very well controlled. Die-hard Sony users may not like the thought but the quality of the bokeh is debatable – out-of-focus highlight don’t seem to be rendered overly well at f/2.8 in the low to mid portion of the zoom range. The bokeh seems to improve at f/4 and it’s generally better towards the 200mm setting. Longitudinal (Axial) Chromatic Aberrations (LoCA) may also be visible in very critical scenes at large apertures.
    The build quality of the lens is excellent and it’s a joy to experience the fast and silent AF (SSM). During the early phase of the Alpha system the lens was significantly overpriced but Sony did obviously realize the market reality and reduced the price down to ~1700€/US$. That’s still fairly steep compared to the -say- Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 USM L but acceptable relative to the overall quality of the package.
