The focal length is 400 mm, and the aperture is f / 2.8. The Sony FE 400 mm F2.8 GM OSS lens will provide the bokeh you can dream of. For this it guarantees great optics.
Sony is introducing a new lens that many photographers are sure to sharpen their teeth for, if they are not afraid of price. Telephoto lens with a length of 400 mm, which guarantees brightness at the level of f / 2.8 and is to be sharp even on the full hole. Such glass will allow to obtain unmanageable staff. The 400 mm F2.8 GM OSS weighs only 2,897 g , which makes it unmatched in convenience in this class of products and easy to use when taking photos from your hand. Its mass does not concentrate on the front, and the moment of inertia on the turnover is even 50% smaller than in the SAL500F40G model.
Extremely fast autofocus
New Sony cameras allow faster and faster shooting and focusing. To maximize their potential, the 400 mm F2.8 GM OSS lens is equipped with two newly developed, fast XD (extreme dynamic) line motors. They are used to move the group of focusing lenses and provide up to 5 times greater efficiency in tracking moving objects. The motion algorithms developed specially for these engines reduce reaction time, operational instability and noise level, which translates into extremely fast, accurate and quiet operation of the AF system. The model is to provide very high quality optics, even at the corners of the frame. Three fluorite lenses in a unique optical construction compensate for chromatic aberration and eliminate color spillage. The coating of the company's Sony Nano AR coating prevents the formation of undesirable reflections, glazes and "ghosts". The 11-leaf circular diaphragm allows you to combine impressive resolution with a nice bokeh effect. FE 400 mm F2.8 GM OSS cooperates with Sony teleconverters with E mount. This allows the use of a 1.4x or 2.0x focal length multiplier, while maintaining impressive image parameters and AF system speed and accuracy.
The design of the FE 400 mm F2.8 GM OSS lens used a durable magnesium alloy, and the sun visor was made of lightweight carbon fiber. Dust and moisture resistance was also ensured and the front element was covered with fluoride, preventing it from dirt deposits and fingerprints. A number of controls have been placed on the lens barrel, such as the DMF switch for immediate manual focus and four focus lock buttons, allowing you to quickly use the "Eye AF" function. There was also a focus ring, which, thanks to the Linear Response MF system, enables quick and accurate manual focusing. The built-in optical image stabilizer helps in taking clear pictures of sporting events.
Sony G Master 400 mm f / 2.8 – price and delivery
This model is to be made to order, so we will not get it in stock. Its deliveries to Europe, including Poland, will start in December this year . We do not know the official price yet, but we can speculate. In my opinion, the model will be priced over 10,000 dollars – we will buy it at the price of a new car.
