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.

The best for the money

This is the best midrange lens for the FE system. Internal zoom. Great IQ. The price is great. May be a tad heavy for some, but that is what happens when you get internal zoom and great IQ.

Super image quality, super-fast autofocus on my A1. Works well with the 1.4 tc and you end up with 840 mm of get out and get 'em! Reasonable weight for a 600mm and I can hand hold it as long as I shoot 1000/sec or faster for super sharp images. Works SUPER with bird eye autofocus.

I've wanted this lens for two years

Made the switch from nikon , i still have the 200-500mm from them, miss the constant f5.6 but this is all in one piece, one move of your wrist and you are from 200 to 600 in half a sec, w the nikon it was a full twist and a half and then half of my bazooka got extended. love the lens perfect for birds.

Perfect for the price point!

I am a first time DSLR camera user but my experience with this lens was awesome! Was able to capture some amazing photos and once I learn more tricks of how to fully use its potential I am confident I will be even more pleased. It was nice that it came with the UV filter at basically no extra charge!

Everything I hoped it would be

I switched to Sony just for this lens. Paired it with a used Sony a9. Coming from a D500, tracking birds in flight has been a day and night difference. I had no idea how much easier it is to track birds with no viewfinder blackout. Once locked on the lens never drops focus. It carries and shoots like a prime lens. Image quality is great. Only negative I can think of is that the lens autofocus is extremely slow to obtain focus switching from a close bird to a flying bird. I find myself prefocusing the lens at a distance object before aiming the lens and that has worked great.

Great lens

I have only been using it for a couple of weeks but the lens is sharp and fast to focus.

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.
