Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS Overview

Combining a super telephoto length, bright aperture, and lightweight design, this FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens for Sony E-mount cameras is ideal for sports, wildlife, and nature photographers. The fast 2.8 aperture provides great depth of field control for isolating subjects as well as maximizing performance for low-light shooting situations. Three fluorite elements reduce chromatic aberration and one ED element further increases performance and image quality by reducing flare and ghosting while shooting in harsh conditions.

Weighing in at just 6.4 lb, this lens is incredibly portable for glass of its size. The weight of the lens is also redistributed to the back where it would sit over a monopod, making tracking subjects and panning easier. Complementing that is Sony's XD Linear Motor autofocus system, which quickly and quietly tracks subjects across the frame even while shooting at high speeds. Furthermore, Optical SteadyShot can combine with in-body stabilization to provide 5-axis stabilization.

Video shooters will also be pleased to find power focus functionality, which provides smooth, even focus while shooting movies. The magnesium-alloy body of this lens is also weather sealed to protect against dirt, dust, and moisture while shooting in adverse conditions. A tripod collar can be rotated around the lens to provide maximum functionality with tripods or monopods.

Super telephoto prime is designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras, however it is also suitable for use with APS-C cameras where it provides a 600mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/2.8 maximum aperture offers great control over depth of field as well as improved low-light performance.
Three fluorite elements and one extra-low dispersion element reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for increased clarity and color accuracy.
Nano AR Coating reduces flare and ghosting, which provides increased better clarity and contrast.
XD Linear Motor System quietly and quickly focuses on fast-moving subjects while shooting at high speeds.
Power Focus functionality for smooth focus during video recording.
Optical SteadyShot Stabilization provides 5-axis image stabilization when paired with a camera that features in-body image stabilization.
Weight distribution is balanced toward the back of the lens, making it easier to pan and track moving subjects.
Magnesium alloy, G Master lens has a weather-sealed construction to protect against dust, dirt, and moisture.
Rounded 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth bokeh quality.
Compatible with optional FE 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters.

Which is good for wildlife 600mm f4 GM or 400mm f2.8 GM.
Asked by: Amit
I agree with Kirk, both of these lenses would be excellent for wildlife photography. I have been using the 400mm f/2.8 for about a month now and love it. I am primarily a birding photographer. The 400 works great with and without the 1.4x tele-converter. It is very well balanced and very easily hand held. The 600mm f/4 should be an awesome lens as well. The primary difference is that the 600 will not be as easy to hand hold. My experience has been with the Sony 500mm f/4 A-mount lens. It is a bit heavier than the E-mount 600 but I have always used it with a sturdy tripod and gimbal head.

While the case is small enough to fit in most overhead compartments, it is best to check with the airline you're using for their specific restrictions on what can be carried on.
