Sony 300mm F2.8 G SSM II Features

The Sony 300mm F2.8 G SSM II provides high contrast and beautiful bokeh effects at levels far surpassing those of existing 300mm f/2.8 lenses by featuring a new high-performance optical design, a quiet high-speed SSM (Super Sonic Wave Motor) autofocus drive system with enhanced object tracking, and an anti-glare Nano AR coating. While with fast internal focusing and two DMF (direct manual focus) modes, this lens ensures user can take tack-sharp images in any situation. Additionally, the lens also designed for outdoor use that equipped with Dust and moisture protection design to help prevent water penetration.

The SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) system of the Sony 300mm F2.8 G SSM II provides faster, more accurate autofocusing with four times faster object tracking performance than the currently available 300mm F2.8 G SSM lens. The improved optical performance of the lens also make it able to create more beautiful background blur (bokeh) than before thanks to optimizations that reduce spherical aberration. In addition, the Nano AR Coating with nano-precision structure reduces the reflection ratio to realize clear, crisp image quality with less flare and ghost from internal reflections.
