Sony Announces FE 600mm f/4 and FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS Lenses

It appears Sony isn’t planning to stop releasing new lenses anytime soon, as the company just announced two new full-frame E-mount lenses – the massive Sony G Master 600mm f/4 super-telephoto prime lens and the 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS super-telephoto zoom lens.

The prime takes the title of the world’s lightest 600mm super-telephoto full frame wide-aperture f/4 lens, but don’t let that fool you because it is still extremely heavy. However, it is made for professionals who need a super-telephoto lens that’s able to catch up with the fast burst speed of professional cameras like the Sony A9 and other upcoming bodies. The lens is great for sports, action and wildlife photography and will retail for $12,998.00 in the United States.

The zoom lens comes with built-in stabilization and while it is not a constant aperture zoom, its range is quite impressive considering its size. The lens features 11-bladed aperture, which results in pleasing bokeh. This lens uses cheaper materials than G Master lenses, and this is one of the main reasons it will retail for just $1,998. Despite that, Sony claims that the lens focuses extremely quickly and accurately and that the lens offers corner-to-corner sharpness.

Both lenses are available for preorder right now and will be released on July 23.
