600-mm F4 G Master super-telephoto lens Fast autofocus plus stunning G Master resolution and gorgeous bokeh in a lightweight, well-balanced, mobile lens. Sony's original XA lens and XD linear motor technologies contribute to peak optical and mechanical performance, making it possible to capture dynamic, eye-catching images from afar. Ideal for sports, news, and nature photography.

XD Motors for fast, precise, tenacious AF Two XD (extreme dynamic) linear motors provide fast, precise AF and reliable tracking, bringing out the best in modern camera bodies and effortlessly maintaining accurate focus on fast-moving sports and wildlife subjects. A new control algorithm contributes to fast, quiet positioning of the large focus group with minimum delay and vibration.

Large XA element enhances image quality An exacting G Master optical design maintains extremely high contrast right out to the image edges. A newly developed large XA (extreme aspherical) element and three fluorite elements suppress the chromatic aberration that can be problematic in telephoto lenses, achieving stunning resolution and detail throughout the image area.

Gorgeous G Master bokeh In addition to including a new large-aperture XA (extreme aspherical) element with extremely high surface precision, each lens is individually calibrated to control spherical aberration, so that gorgeous G Master bokeh is ideally balanced with high resolution. An 11-blade circular aperture further adds to the beauty of the lens's smooth bokeh.

Extra reach with 1.4x/2.0x teleconverters Optional high-performance 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters are available. The 2.0x teleconverter extends the focal length of the lens to 1,200 mm (1,800 mm on an APS-C body) with F8 maximum aperture, while maintaining outstanding optical quality, as well as AF speed and precision.

Flare-resistant for superior clarity Sony's original Nano AR Coating, flocking on critical interior surfaces, and other design refinements minimize internal reflections so that the lens is highly resistant to flare and ghosting, which can degrade image clarity. Rendering is crisp and clear even in difficult light. (1. Nano AR coating / 2. Glass / 3. Transmitted light)

Light and well-balanced for easy shooting A low weight of just 6.70 lb and sublime balance make it possible to take full advantage of outstanding optical performance even when shooting handheld or on a monopod, all thanks to technology inherited from the SEL400F28GM. With a compact, lightweight E-mount body, the center of gravity is ideally located for smooth, precise panning.

Dust- and moisture-resistant design A dust-resistant and moisture-resistant design provides the reliability needed for outdoor use in challenging conditions.

Rigid magnesium alloy barrel components A high-rigidity magnesium alloy used for the lens barrel exterior, tripod mount, and critical interior components provides the dual benefits of outstanding durability and reduced weight - both are advantages when shooting in challenging situations and environments.

Fluorine front-element coating The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants, while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants or fingerprints that do become attached to the lens surface.

Lightweight carbon fiber lens hood This lightweight, durable carbon fiber lens hood also features a flocked interior that maximizes its effectiveness at blocking unwanted light that can degrade image quality.

Rigid, durable mount design Designed to withstand the rigors of professional use, the number of screws used to attach the mount has been increased, and other refinements have been applied to ensure maximum rigidity and reliability.

Trunk-style dedicated hard case A specially designed trunk-style carrying case protects the lens from shock and vibration during transportation.

Full-time DMF When the FULL TIME DMF switch is ON, manual focus is automatically engaged when the focus ring is operated, even in the AF-C mode. This capability can be used to correct focus when autofocus targets the wrong subject, for example. It is also a great way to refine focus after initial autofocus when shutter button half-press autofocus is disengaged.

3-mode Optical SteadyShot Optical image Stabilization makes it easier to shoot sharp images handheld at super-telephoto focal lengths. MODE 2 offers ideal Stabilization for panned shots, while MODE 3 provides enhanced viewfinder Stabilization, which allows easier framing of dynamic sports or wildlife action. 5-axis Stabilization is available with compatible bodies.

Natural, linear manual focus response Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise.

Four customizable focus hold buttons Customizable focus hold buttons are provided in four locations for easy access when shooting in any orientation. The focus hold buttons can also be customized via a camera menu that allows assignment of other functions as required, such as Eye AF.

Versatile function ring A versatile, convenient function ring can be switched to preset focus, assigned function control, or no function via the mode selector.

Instantly focus on a predefined point Once a predefined focus point has been memorized via the SET button, rotating the function ring will instantly recall the preset focus point if the PRESET mode is active. This is an ideal way to preset focus points for fast sports action, for example. It works in the AF and MF modes, and is unaffected by focus range limiter settings.

Smooth power focus If the function ring mode switch is set to FUNCTION and the power focus function is assigned, rotating the ring causes the lens to focus smoothly in the specified direction at a speed determined by the degree of rotation. Power focus is useful for executing smooth pull focus effects when shooting movies.

Fast switching from full-frame to APS-C If the function ring mode switch is set to FUNCTION and the APS-C/full-frame switching function is assigned, the function ring can be rotated to instantly switch between APS-C and full-frame view angles (supported by the latest the 9 software version).

Slide-in filter slot A filter slot accepts standard 40.5 mm ND and other filter types, as well as the optional VF-DCPL1 circular polarizing filter. The VF-DCPL1 circular polarizing filter can be rotated for optimum effect while installed in the lens.

Durable, versatile tripod mount The tripod mount of the lens is equipped with bearings that enhance durability while promoting smooth rotation. There are also 90° click stops that can be switched ON or OFF according to the user's preference: ON for secure, fast 90° positioning, or OFF for reduced resistance and smooth rotation.

Focus range limiter for faster focus A focus range limiter switch makes it possible to limit the autofocus range of the lens to 4.5 through 15 meters, 15 meters to infinity, or allow full-range autofocus with no limit. This can speed up autofocus in some situations by preventing the lens from focusing on subjects outside the target range.
