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

Covering medium-tele to super-tele fields of view, the Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS is a versatile zoom in that it brings such a dramatic telephoto range to a handheld package. Despite the larger form factor, the modest maximum aperture makes for a relatively lightweight lens that suits outdoor shooters on the move. As a G lens, it prioritizes optical performance with the inclusion of specialized glass and a Nano AR coating, and a weather-sealed barrel ensures safe use in inclement conditions. The Direct Drive SSM yields quick and accurate focusing performance, OSS image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake, and the lens has a built-in tripod foot for more stable mounting on a tripod or monopod.
