Perfect for wildlife and more, this 200-600mm super-telephoto zoom can reach as far as 840mm or 1200mm with 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters, with full G lens quality and AF performance. Aspherical and ED glass elements achieve superb resolution throughout the zoom range, while Sony’s Nano AR Coating cuts flare and ghosting. The bokeh is gorgeous, too.
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.
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.
Sony’s DDSSM (Direct Drive SSM) 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.
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 3provides enhanced viewfinder Stabilisation that allows easier framing of erratic sports or wildlife movement. 5-axis Stabilisation is available with compatible α bodies.
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).
customisable focus hold buttons are provided in three locations 90° apart for easy access when shooting in horizontal orientation, or vertical orientation with the camera grip up or down. Other functions can be assigned to the buttons as required.
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.
A dust and moisture resistant design provides the reliability needed for outdoor use in challenging conditions.
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.
