Obducat NIL-technology enables Sony’s Nano Anti-Reflective (AR) technology used in its top-of-theline lenses

Sony has been using Obducat NIL-technology, for several years, to produce their Nano Anti-Reflective coating on some of their high-end lenses.

This Sony original coating features a precisely defined regular nano-structure that allows accurate light transmission while effectively suppressing reflections which can cause ghosting and flare. This reflection suppression characteristic with the Nano AR Coating is superior to conventional anti-reflective coatings, including coatings using an irregular nano-structure. The result provides a notable improvement in both clarity and contrast, as well as overall image quality.

The lenses with this special AR coating include some of Sony’s large telephoto lenses, well suited towards photographers capturing fast paced sporting events and wildlife in their natural habitats. Light loss is substantially minimized with the coating, enabling the photographer to captuer a truer, more natural image as perceived with the human eye. 

A few of the lenses featuring the Nano Anti-Reflective coating technology are: Sony 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 G Master Lens, Sony 300mm f/2.8 G SSM II Lens and Sony 70-200 mm F2.8 G SSM II
