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.

It's a heavy lens and I recommend using a tripod.

Best telephoto for my needs

By Fred

I was using a Nikon 500 f5.6PF lens and Nikon 70-200 f2.8 lens (with 1.4x teleconverter) for wildlife. However, I found carrying two setups to be cumbersome, so I rented the Sony 200-600 and A74 body. I was blown away by how sharp the lens is, even at 600mm and enlarged to actual pixels. I bought one from BH and put my Nikon 500PF (and D500) up for sale. While I still use my Nikon 70-200 (and shorter lenses) for scenics on a D850, I now have a one camera solution for wildlife. The stabilization works great (both in lens and in camera) and I use it mostly handheld. The price is quite reasonable for the sharpness and build quality. Unfortunately, my camera body (A74) had one of the SD slots break after only a month so it is currently out for warranty repair, but the lens itself is just about perfect. The only negative is the modest aperture, but if you want a larger aperture in this focal length you have to pay a fortune and carry a lot more weight and give up the versatility of a zoom. I am willing to live with the aperture considering what this lens delivers.

The lens I was looking for.

I initially passed on this lens because of reviews that said it was too large and heavy to travel with. After watching a Mark Smith review I purchased it. The quality of the wildlife images are what I have been looking for. I was shooting with the 100-400, often with a 1.4 TC, simply because getting close to wild animals if often hard. The advantages of this lens are multiple. One, you do not have to use a tele-converter. Two, it is an internal telephoto, and once balanced stays balanced. Three, the zoom and manual focus are smoother. Four, the images of birds at distance are noticeably better. Much better. Overall, I feel I can get the photos I was coveting. That is the whole point of photography. I pair it with an a7R IV, and my only regret is not having an adequate autofocus for flying birds. Thank you Mark Smith for convincing me to purchase this lens.

Awesome lens

A bit on the heavy side if you not used to bigger zooms. Focus is super fast on the a7iv. Can't complain!

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.
