Aimed at wildlife and sports photographers, this Sony FE 200-600mm f5.6-6.3 G OSS Lens will meet the needs of many enthusiasts and professionals looking for extra reach and pin-sharp clarity on their full-frame E-mount camera. Fully weather-sealed, it features an internal zoom, Direct Drive SSM autofocus system and Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation to ensure exceptional performance at all focal lengths.
Zoom to 600mm, or 1200mm with a teleconverter
Compatible with optional 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters, for a maximum focal length of 840 mm or 1200 mm at F13. Both teleconverters are top quality, retaining outstanding image quality and AF performance. Zoom and aperture range with the 1.4x teleconverter is 280-840 mm, F8-9. With the 2.0x teleconverter, the ranges are 400-1200mm, F11-13.
High resolution throughout the zoom range
Five ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and one aspherical element in a new optical design offer superb resolution and image quality throughout the zoom range. The aspherical element suppresses spherical aberration and distortion, while the ED glass elements minimize chromatic aberration that can be a problem at super-telephoto focal lengths.
Beautiful, natural G lens bokeh
An 11-blade circular aperture mechanism adds to the beauty of 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.
Fast, precise AF tracks swift subjects
Sony’s DDSSM (Direct Drive Super Sonic wave Motor) system has the power and precision needed to drive the lens’s mechanism for remarkably fast, accurate focusing. High positioning accuracy means that no movement is wasted. Pinpoint autofocus is achieved with blazing speed. The DDSSM system is incredibly quiet, too.
Nano AR Coating stops flare and ghosting
Sony’s original Nano AR Coating has a uniform nanometer-level structure that breaks up the lens’s boundary surface, significantly reducing reflections that can cause image-degrading flare and ghosting. The overall result is superior image clarity and contrast. (1. Nano AR Coating / 2. Glass / 3. Transmitted light)
3-mode Optical SteadyShot
Optical Image Stabilisation makes it easier to shoot sharp images handheld at super-telephoto focal lengths. MODE 2 offers ideal Stabilisation for panned shots, while MODE 32 provides enhanced viewfinder Stabilisation that allows easier framing of erratic sports or wildlife movement. 5-axis Stabilisation is available with compatible bodies.
Internal zoom supports stable shooting
An internal zoom mechanism means that the length of the lens does not change while zooming, for stable handheld operation with consistent balance. Internal zoom also means that the distance between the front element and the subject does not change.
Three customisable focus hold buttons
Customisable focus hold buttons are provided in three locations 90° apart for easy access to shoot in a horizontal orientation, or in a vertical orientation with the camera grip up or down. Other functions can be assigned to the buttons as required.
Focus range limiter for faster focus
A focus range limiter switch makes it possible to limit the lens’s autofocus range to 2.4 through 10 meters, 10 meters to infinity, or allow full-range autofocus with no limit. This can speed up autofocus in some situations by preventing the lens from focusing on subjects outside the target range.
Natural, linear manual focus response
Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise.
Dust and moisture-resistant design
A dust and moisture resistant design provides the reliability needed for outdoor use in challenging conditions.
Fluorine front-element coating
The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants or fingerprints that do become attached to the lens surface.
Removable tripod mount
A removable tripod mount allows quick attachment to or removal from a tripod so the user can easily switch between tripod and handheld shooting. The mount can also be removed for convenient transport and storage. A lock mechanism prevents accidental removal.
