World’s Lightest 400mm F2.8 Prime with Ideal Balance for Monopod or Handheld Shooting
Weighing in at only 2897g, the new FE 400mm F2.8 GM OSS lens provides a level of portability and handheld manoeuvrability that has never before been achieved in a lens of its class.
Fast, Precise Autofocus
The FE 400mm F2.8 GM OSS lens features two newly developed high-speed XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors that drive the lens’ focus group, achieving up to a 5x improvement in moving-subject tracking performance. This allows the lens to capture dynamic, fast moving athletes or wildlife with ease.
G Master Image Quality and Bokeh
The new large aperture super-telephoto prime lens features an incredible level of image quality and detail, with outstanding contrast and resolution maintained all the way to the corners of the image.
The lens has also been coated with Sony’s original Nano AR coating to suppress any unwanted reflections, glare, or ghosting. In addition to the impressive resolution, the lens features an 11-blade circular aperture mechanism that allows it to produce extremely natural and beautiful background defocus or bokeh.
Durability, Reliability and Control
To withstand the harsh conditions of sporting events and wildlife photography, it is built with a durable magnesium alloy and a strong, lightweight carbon fibre hood. The lens is also dust and moisture resistant, and its front element is coated with fluorine to resist dirt and fingerprints.
There is also an ample amount of hard controls on the lens ‘Full-Time DMF’ switch to immediately engage manual focus at any point, customisable focus hold buttons in four different locations on the lens barrel - allowing easy access of an Eye AF for example, and a focus ring that features Linear Response MF for fine, responsive manual focus. The new lens also features built-in optical stabilisation for dynamic sports action and three different ‘Mode’ settings.
