    Two extra-low dispersion elements and one Super ED element are featured in the lens design and help to control chromatic aberrations and reduce color fringing for increased clarity and color fidelity.
    A Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.

Sony 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 reviews

FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS Lens with UV Filter Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent With this on an a6500 and set to max zoom, I got an infocus (manually) and completely jitterless shot of a rocket launch from about 70 miles, hand-held. All parts of the craft are clearly visible. I was amazed. The image stabilization in the lens and in the camera must be working in concert. I measured it because I was shopping for a case. With the zoom barrel fully retracted, the distance from the lens surface that rests on the outside of the camera's mount to the extent of the lens with the lens cap on, is 8.25 inches. The a6500 measures 1.5 inches from that surface to the back of the camera (excluding eye cup). So the total is 9.75 inches (24.8cm).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lens is excellent! I purchased this 100-400mm zoom lens recently from B&H along with the new A7rIII and have only started to use it.� I also purchased the 1.4x teleconverter which gives an extra 160mm of effective focal length.� It definitely outweighs the camera so the tripod mount is essential.� It needs a good deal of light or a stable platform to perform well.� I haven't tried on my A7s yet but, last night, I got the attached picture�of the SuperBlueMoon�between the clouds using this lens, the A7rIII and the 1.4X teleconverter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gigantic Lens Swapping from an APS-C camera outfit to a full frame outfit, I had to buy a new set of lenses and one of them being this model which the max focal length is close to the kit Nikon 55-300. That lens was light compared to this behemoth 3 lb'er. Other than that the performance is to be expected by most Sony products which is outstanding. The clarity is unmatched and the features it has built in , for example the OSS along with the camera's built in stabilization really help in situations when taking action shots with no mono or tripod. The lens focal torque adjustment is a great help which prevents focus creeping. Great for any action or nature photographer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME! This is a FANTASTIC lens for wildlife. The lens is sharp with fast autofocus, especially�mounted on my A7R III. It's a bit heavy, but that's�expected given its�range. I recommend�using a monopod or tripod as carrying this around all day will be bothersome. I haven't tried this lens for sports but I highly recommend it for anyone shooting wildlife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens for sports and wildlife I am a long time Nikon shooter and do most of my professional sports photographer with a 200-400mm F4 lens.� I just recently purchased the Sony Alpha 9 camera and needed this lens to go with it as it is the only longer telephoto lens available for this camera.� It's focus is lightning quick on the Sony A9 and the range is wonderful.� It had become my go to lens for shooting professional baseball.� �The bokeh is very good even though at 400mm you are shooting at F5.6� �I was worried about that as my Nikon 200-400 is beautiful.� I would give the Nikon a slight edge here but not much.� Also this lens is light and easy to shoot with without using a monopod.� I can react quicker as a result.� You won't be sorry.� Can't wait for Sony to release the 400mm F2.8

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Lens I wanted a longer lens for wildlife and grandsons sports events. This lens is tac start. I was a little worried about the weight but am happy to say I can hand hold it just fine. It was be 74th birthday present to myself. Thanks Sony for finally coming up with a 100-400 lens!!
Date published: 2018-08-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for sports I already had the 70--200mm with the 2x converter for use on my A9 and thought this would be a redundant lens, but the ability to have the full range of 100-400 as opposed to 140-400mm makes a big difference. Much more than I would have guessed. For soccer at least, there are many occasions where the action gets up close and personal, and the ability to get down to a portrait length helps a great deal. In addition, the lens is sharp, has great detail, and quick focus. Color seems to be vivid as well.
Date published: 2018-04-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow!! Love this lens This lens gives great color, background separation and Bokeh. Combined with my A7rIII it's amazing. I was looking for a super telephoto lens and have used the Tamron 150-600 with my Nikon d810, so when this came out I was afraid of not having the 600mm reach. But when I unboxed it and took it out for a shoot, I knew I made the right choice. This lens is so sharp that I can crop if needed and don't miss the 150-600mm at all. I takes some decent macros too!
