While overall dimensions are confined to the absolute minimum, the SP AF70-200mm f/2.8 zoom lens is packed with features that allow stress-free photography: a versatile MFD of just 37.4" over the entire zoom range; best-in-class maximum macro magnification ratio of 1:3.1 at f=200mm; and an advantageous internal focusing (IF) system. The new tele-zoom lens covers a desirable focal length range of 70mm medium telephoto to 200mm telephoto when mounted on full-size format SLR cameras and a focal length range from 109mm to 310mm* ultra telephoto when mounted on a DSLR camera with an APS-C sized imager.
This lens boasts a minimum focus distance of 0.95m over the entire zoom range, the best performance in its class. This makes large-aperture telephoto zoom photography possible over a longer shooting range. The lens also has a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.1 (at 200mm, with a minimum focus distance of 0.95m), enabling you to enjoy close-up macro photography of flowers, insects, and other tiny objects.
This zoom lens uses three LD (low dispersion) elements which effectively compensates for chromatic aberrations providing edge-to-edge sharpness and high-contrast image quality with flat-field characteristics over the entire zoom range. Moreover, through the use of “Internal Surface Coatings (i.e., multiple-layer coatings on cemented surfaces of plural elements)” and multiple-layer coatings to prevent reflections from lens surfaces is reduced to the absolute minimum.
