REVIEW: Sony 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G SSM

  • Conclusion: I can't help but have mixed feelings about this lens. It's built superbly, is fast focusing and has great control of falloff, distortion and flare. At shorter focal lengths it also performs very well, but to get good results at 300mm, the lens needs stopping down.
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, Fast focusing, Good control of distortion, CA and flare
  • Cons: Disappointing resolution at 300mm, High price tag for such a lens

  • Conclusion: The Sony 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 SSM G impressed during our APS-C format test and it is capable of delivering high quality results within the full format scope as well.

Sony 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 SSM G (SAL-70300G) - APS-C Review / Test Report

31 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Sony 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 SSM G is high quality lens and possibly the best of the breed (70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 class). The resolution figures are very good across the zoom range. Lateral CAs, vignetting and distortions are generally well controlled and not really field relevant.
