Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens


The latest telephoto Sony FE 400mm F/2.8 GM OSS lens is specifically designed for Sony E-Mount mirrorless cameras, fully packed with advanced capabilities to produce astonishing G Master resolution and bokeh images thanks to its large F/2.8 aperture with its 11 rounded aperture blade diaphragm. With a phenomenal focal length of 400mm - making it the ideal lens for sports and wildlife photography, also being powerful and extremely light and making it easy for handheld shooting.

Some great features of the Sony FE 400mm F/2.8 GM OSS lens include Aperture Range of f/2.8 to f/22; Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization with new Mode 3 and focus ring that features extreme dynamic (XD)Linear Response MF for fine, smooth and responsive focus control to avoid blur shots when shooting handheld and to always have track of fast moving subjects; Fluorine front-element coating that protects the lens from dirt and fingerprints; dust and moisture resistant being perfect for harsh environments and amazing flare resistance for high clarity and contrast thanks to its AR coating.

The impressive contrast from edge to edge of your image is all thanks to the amazing G Master lens where the optical design consists of three fluorite elements that effectively reduces axial chromatic aberration which normally occurs in large aperture lenses as well as lateral chromatic aberration that can reduce the resolution towards the image.

Innovative G Master F2.8 super telephoto

Sony has packed all its latest technology into this amazing F/2.8 super telephoto lens that has been unsparingly applied in this large-aperture super telephoto lens, achieving impressive fast speeds, outstanding G Master resolution and bokeh, plus professional control and reliability with the lens. Moreover, the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS lens is the lightest super telephoto lens in its class, providing unparalleled handheld shooting freedom to produce absolute sharp images.

Newly developed XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motor achieves extremely fast, precise, quiet AF

With the XD Linear Motors used in the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS, have been newly developed to deliver higher thrust and efficiency than conventional types in order to make the most of the rapidly evolving speed performance of current and future camera bodies. The linear motor design and component layout have been thoroughly revised to achieve significantly higher thrust. Two of these new motors are used in the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS, achieving up to a 5x the improvement in moving-subject tracking performance. This means that the full speed performance of advanced camera bodies can be applied to capturing perfect images of the most dynamic sports or wildlife subjects. The XD motors are further supported by new algorithms developed specifically for them, notably improving the motors' response to control signals and effectively minimizing lag and instability that can occur when driving a large aperture focus lens group for quiet, low-vibration operation. 

Extraordinary G Master resolution

All lenses bearing the G Master brand are designed to extremely high standards, producing impressive contrast and colour from edge to edge of your image is all thanks to the amazing G Master lens where the optical design consists of three fluorite elements that effectively reduces axial chromatic aberration which normally occurs in large aperture lenses as well as lateral chromatic aberration that can reduce the resolution towards the image.

Natural, beautiful G Master Bokeh

In addition to careful control of spherical aberration at the design stage, each lens is individually tested and adjusted during manufacture to achieve the highest possible bokeh quality. Featuring a 11-blade rounded aperture diaphragm mechanism further contributes to smooth circular bokeh. The Sony lens allows the narrow depth of field which can be achieved with this amazing new Sony FE 400mm F/2.8 GM OSS lens to be utilized to create the most beautiful images with deep, lush, defocused backgrounds.


Excellent flare resistance for high clarity and contrast

Sony has applied its original Nano AR Coating to interior lens surfaces to effectively suppress reflections that can lead to flare and ghosting, significantly enhancing image clarity and contrast. (1. Nano AR coating / 2. Glass / 3. Transmitted light)

The Worlds Lightest Lens weighing only 2,895 g

With the super telephoto Sony lens that features an innovative optical design consisting of three fluorite elements and reduces the number of elements deployed at the front of the lens barrel which is behind the remarkably light weight of this beautiful lens. Featuring magnesium alloy components in the barrel with an extremely lightweight of only 2,895g making it ideal for handheld shooting which sport and wildlife photographers would appreciate.

Liberal use of magnesium alloy

A durable magnesium alloy is used not only for the lens barrel exterior and tripod mount, but also for interior barrel components as well. This provides the tough durability that demanding professional applications require, while minimizing overall weight in the Sony FE 400mm F/2.8 GM OSS lens.

Fluorine front-element coating

The front lens element features a special fluorine coating that helps to prevent dirt and fingerprints from sticking, while making it extremely easy to clean dirt and fingerprints away if they do appear on the lens surface.

Strong, lightweight carbon fibre lens hood

The supplied lens hood is made of strong, lightweight carbon fibre, with interior flocking for optimum light control.

Built-in optical image stabilization with new Mode 3

Sony has incorporated Optical image stabilization into the Sony FE 400mm F/2.8 GM OSS lens, making it easier to capture sharp images when shooting handheld. In addition to the Mode 2 setting that is provided for panning shots, the Sony FE 400mm F/2.8 GM OSS lens features a brand-new Mode 3 setting with an advanced algorithm that ensures easier framing when following moving subjects. Mode 3 provides optimum stabilization for tracking and shooting dynamic, unpredictable sports action. 5-axis image stabilization becomes available when the Sony FE 400mm F/2.8 GM OSS lens is used with an α body that features in-body image stabilization.


While the FULL-TIME DMF switch is on, the manual focus mode automatically engages by simply rotating the focus ring as well as when shooting in AF-C mode. If Autofocus (AF) causes focus to shift to a different subject when shooting – the focus ring can be used quite quickly to bring the focus back to the chosen subject.

Drop-in Filter Slot

The Sony FE 400mm F/2.8 GM OSS lens includes a filter slot that allows you to add a 40.5mm ND and other filter types, as well as the VF-DCPL1 drop-in circular polarizer that can be rotated to achieve the desired polarization while being a part of the lens.

Power Focus

If the function ring select switch is enabled to Function and the function ring is rotated, the focus produces a smooth shift at a speed determined by the amount of function ring rotation.
