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.

This has got to be the best telephoto lens out there. You would be doing yourself a disservice by not buying one!

Buying this lens was a big step, grandson is in sports so felt I would get use of it. Amazing outcome and easy to handle. Now it's time to take it out in the wild.

This is probably the best lens I have ever owned. Unfortunately I cannot afford 10K+ telephoto lenses but for landscape this one has excellent value. Most of my best photos I have shot is with this lens. Without any doubt I give It is heavy and big but super sharp all the way from 200 to 600. By the 500-600 it gets little softer but not significantly. Image Stabilizer works super! Sometimes it misses focus on my Sony A7IV but after restart all works fine. Not sure whether it is problem with camera. Haven't noticed similar issue with Sony A7III.

Are there words for this lens? Epic!!!!!

There are no words. It's the best lens I've ever used. Definitely heavy. 5 lbs. A good tripod solves this. I'm using the Really aRight Stuff HG-504 mx with the Really Right Stuff L85 Multiuse Fore-Aft Plate with 1/4-20 Screw. Backpack. Lens pack with Stoney FE 200_600plus, Tripod ---I'm good to go! The Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS Lens is stable, clear, easy to focus to get those long range shots for sports or in my case wildlife. Couldn't function without it.

If you don't mind the weight and size...

By Doug

I went back and forth deciding between the Sony G Master 100-400 and this lens. I bought both and tested them on my A7III. I ended up sticking with the 100-400, but really only because I ultimately valued the 100-200 focal length more than the 400-600 range and because the 100-400 is lighter and more compact (and fits better in my bag with my other gear). But man -- the 200-600 is a beautiful lens that delivers! I didn't see any drop-off in performance across the focal range, the action on it is excellent, and it has all the features one would need. It is a hair slower than the 100-400, but that's hardly an issue. The autofocus performance is stellar. I had no problem nailing the focus on cyclocross racers pretty frequently (and I'm not a great technical photographer). If you don't mind the size and weight, this lens is a no brainer.

Sharp and Quick

So far so good! The lens has produced some nice photos and has worked well with my A7iv. The lens is big and heavy but you get a lot of reach for the effort. It's not f2.8 but then again it wasn't $12,000 either.

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.

How does this lens need to be stored? lying flat, or standing up?
Asked by: Richard
You can store the Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS Lens laying flat or standing up. As long as the lens is stored securely in a padded storage case, it should be fine. You could consider storing it with a 95mm clear filter attached, for added impact protection. You could also store it inside of a hard, crushproof case (from Pelican or Nanuk) with foam interior.

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.
