Sony has announced 2 new additions to their full-frame FE lens line-up.: the Super-Telephoto 600mm F4 G Master™ Prime Lens aimed at professional sports, wildlife and news photographers and the FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS Super-Telephoto Zoom Lens for amateur photographers, enthusiasts, and professional sports photographers. The addition of these two impressive lenses illustrates Sony's intention to grow its E-mount lens line-up which now stands at a whopping 33 full-frame models and 51 lenses in total !
Sony 600mm F4 G Master™ Prime Lens
The new Super-Telephoto 600mm F4 G Master™ Prime Lens becomes Sony’s longest reaching prime lens and is designed for professional sports, wildlife and news photographers who capture subjects at great distances. Although it’s the longest reaching lens it is the lightest in its class, weighing in at only approx. 3040g. It’s also not front-heavy; in fact it is very well balanced which helps when shooting handheld or with a monopod in the field. As you would expect for a lens designed for sporting events and wildlife photography it’s built to withstand harsh conditions incorporating a magnesium alloy body and lightweight carbon fibre hood with a front element coated with fluorine to resist dirt and fingerprints.
This new lens includes built-in optical stabilisation with three different ‘Mode’ settings, including a Mode 3 setting for easier framing when following moving subjects. It also features a function ring with selectable ‘Preset’ and ‘Function’ settings, and a drop-in filter slot.
All in all with fast, precise and quiet autofocus, great image quality and bokeh built within a lightweight, well balanced designed body it’s definitely worth taking a look at.
- Fast, Precise and Quiet Autofocus
- Superb G Master Image Quality and Bokeh
- Lightweight, Balanced Design
- Durability, Reliability and Control
Pricing and Availability
The FE 600mm F4 GM OSS will ship in Europe in August 2019, priced at approximately £12,000 and €14,000
FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS Super-Telephoto Zoom Lens
The FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS offers the same reach as the G Master 600mm but as a zoom lens with a variable aperture. It is designed more for amateur photographers, enthusiasts, and professional sports photographers. It offers the versatility of a zoom lens while still having a built in optical stabiliser, giving you more flexibility when shooting. It has an internal zoom and is dust and moisture resistant so it's perfect for shooting in the harsher conditions you may find in wildlife, nature or sports.
As with the Sony 600mm F4 G Master™ Prime Lens it has a robust and well balanced build. The 11-blade circular aperture mechanism adds to the bokeh produced by this lens, making it possible to use the narrow depth of field available at super-telephoto focal lengths to produce striking images with deep, creamy G lens bokeh. Pinpoint autofocus is achieved at blazing speed and the DDSSM system is incredibly quiet, too.
- Internal zoom making it faster and more stable
- Dust / Moisture resistant
- Fast Autofocus
- Centre weighted for a more balanced feel
- 5 ED glass elements, 1 aspherical
Pricing and Availability
