In this video I will review the New Sony E 70-350mm G OSS Lens from a Real World Perspective and of course do some Lab Testing for good measure 😉 This lens is a high quality telephoto zoom designed specifically for the crop factor E-Mount cameras like the Sony A6600, A6500, A6400, and so forth… It has an effective range of 105-525mm when you factor in for the APS-C sensor crop factor.
This telephoto range is great for nature and wildlife photography, outdoor field sports, landscapes, and much more.
I put the lens thru it’s pases and have a ton of real world sample photos to show you, so after you watch the video review portion of this review, be sure to scroll down and click on the photos for a closer look at what kind of images you can achieve with this lens.

So at the end of the day the Sony E 70-350mm G OSS Lens is a fantastic telephoto zoom lens. It has amazing range, fairly compact design, great build quality, superb optical quality, and won’t break the bank to bad when it comes to cost. I highly recommend this lens for those looking for a APS-C specific lens that is much lighter weight than the full frame e-mount lens options currently available.
Since my youtube version of this review was created several months back, we do now have another resonable affordable telephoto lens option available know as the Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Contemporary Lens. I have not tested this lens, but it’s retailing for $950 US at the time of this review, and appears to be worth considering at the moment. Time will tell however, because there are not than many reviews yet, and at then end of the day you do usually get what you pay for…
That is about it for this review and I really hope you all got what you were looking for. Please let me know what you think of the Sony E 70-350mm G OSS Lens and be sure to ask questions below if you have them.
I’ll catch up with you guys next time, Jay
