Super-Telephoto Versatility
Spanning a versatile telephoto range, the FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS from Sony is a flexible zoom perfectly suited for nature, wildlife, and sports applications. Its long reach pairs with a modest maximum aperture range to render to a relatively lightweight and portable design and, as a G series lens, optical quality, focus speed, and attention to handling details are also priorities of this well-rounded super-tele zoom.
Long-Reaching, Stabilized Zoom
  • Designed for full-frame E-mount cameras, this super-telephoto can also be used on APS-C models to achieve an equivalent 300-900mm focal length range.
  • Maximum aperture range of f/5.6-6.3 helps minimize size and weight while providing excellent performance in a variety of applications.
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds.
  • OSS has three dedicated modes, including panning and viewfinder stabilization priority settings, and can also be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
  • Internal zoom design limits the overall length of the lens while zooming for more intuitive and comfortable handling.
  • Compatible with optional 1.4x and 2x FE teleconverters for further increasing the lens's reach.
G Lens Series
  • Five extra-low dispersion elements are featured in the lens design and help to control chromatic aberrations and reduce color fringing for increased clarity and color fidelity.
  • One aspherical element is placed at the rear of the optical design and reduces distortion and spherical aberrations in order to produce a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • A Nano AR Coating has been applied to minimize surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
  • A rounded 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Fast and Precise Autofocus
  • Direct Drive Super Sonic wave Motor (DDSSM) AF system provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance that suits both stills and video applications.
  • Linear Response manual focus control offers more natural handling and an AF/MF switch is located on the lens barrel for tactile control over this setting.
  • Three customizable focus hold buttons are present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
  • Minimum focusing distance of 7.9', along with a maximum magnification of 0.2x, benefits portraiture and head shots.
  • Focus range limiter and focus hold controls offer more intuitive handling and faster performance when photographing moving subjects.
Professional, Durable Design
  • Dust and weather-sealed construction benefits using the lens in inclement shooting conditions.
  • The front lens element features a fluorine coating to protect against smudges and dust from adhering to the glass surface.
  • Removable rotating tripod mount permits quick switching from horizontal to vertical shooting orientations.

Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS Reviews

Great Wildlife and Birding Lens

By Gregory
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-28

This lens is superb! Originally I had the Sony 100-400 GM, and was in love with it, but it didn't have the long end reach that I was looking for as an amateur photographer focusing on birding and wildlife. The 200-600 G is the answer to what I was missing! This lens is awesome! Works great with the 1.4x teleconverter I have without too much of a compromise in light loss, and it is tack sharp. Although this lens is heavy and does require one to commit to carrying, it is nice to have the zoom elements encased within the lens body to avoid weight changes when zooming. A full zoom only takes a quarter to half turn of the wrist. Definitely worth the lateral move from the 100-400 GM

Lens is great, Sony service is horrible

I bought this lens on BH in March and had an issue with the hood. The thread came undone, the hood kept on falling off. Contacted BH, they just told me to tell Sony. Would have liked a little more help from their side but that seems to be the norm these days. Sony has been sitting on this over a month after opening the case for a replacement of the hood, does not reply to emails, endless automated answering machines. After three weeks, I got someone in chat and they told me they would escalate it and then, guess what, nothing happened. Sony has sent no communication on their own volition. Makes me concerned what happens if I have a real issue. Lens itself is great.

Great lens. I was in Alaska and dunked my 200-600 and it had a bunch of moisture internally. Called Sony, cheaper to buy a new one so, ordered from B&H. Once it arrived I did some testing and found it was not nearly as sharp as my original so, sent it in for an exchange. Lens #3 arrived a few days later and, tested out to be very sharp. The ease and speed of buying/returning/exchanging at B&H will keep me coming back. Thanks!

This lens has been great to shoot high school golf since you have to stay 30 yards away from players. Able to get great shot without having to be super close.

As long as the Adapter is an E-Mount to whatever mount you need. The 200-600mm Lens is part of the E-Mount Family. So when looking for an adapter, keep an eye out for those.

Gordon's response to the question about the Sony 200-600 G with 1.4 converter indicates that the lens on an A7Riii doesn't track moving birds well because the aperture shifts to f9. Is this a problem in the A7Riv as well?
Asked by: Mark
Most likely ou will have auto focusing issues. Since the birds are far, most likely the lens will be on infinite so try setting the camera in manual focus.
