Sony Reveals New Super-Telephoto Zoom and Prime Lenses

Sony has detailed two new additions to its lineup of super-telephoto E-mount lenses. The collection includes the FE 600mm f/4 GM OSS Lens ($12,998) and the FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS Lens (1,998). Pre-orders are set to launch for both models on June 13 and shipments are expected to arrive in August.

"With two new lenses announced today, our growing E-mount lens lineup now includes 33 full-frame models and 51 lenses in total," said Neal Manowitz, deputy president for Imaging and Professional Solutions Americas at Sony Electronics. "The tenth model from our flagship G Master series, the new 600mm F4 raises the bar for speed, mobility, and control in a super-telephoto prime lens. Combining the extensive 600mm reach with features like 20 fps shooting and AF/AE calculations at 60 times per second on the α9 or extremely high resolution, high-speed performance on the α7R III allow professional photographers to create images that were simply not possible to capture before."

The FE 600mm f/4 GM OSS is a super-telephoto prime lens model under the flagship G Master Series. The lens features two extreme dynamic (XD) linear motors to drive the device's focus group, helping to enable fast, quiet, and precise AF with reliable subject tracking. Likewise, the unit's optical design incorporates a large extreme aspherical (XA) element and three fluorite elements to reduce telephoto lens aberrations, chromatic aberration, and color bleeding. An 11-blade circular aperture mechanism is implemented as well for high-quality bokeh.
