The Sony FE 600mm f/4 GM OSS Lens features an extremely large, super-telephoto zoom lens that combines a large focal length, with fast and accurate autofocus in a tremendously lightweight body. Ideal for professional photographers to travel with when capturing wildlife out in the Safari, sports photography and more. The fixed focal length FE 600mm f/4 GM OSS Lens from Sony can be used to capture impressive portraits from a mile away and still achieve superior image quality with sharpness from edge-to-edge.

Core features to this extremely lightweight Sony FE 600mm f/4 GM OSS Lens includes two XD Motors which is used to achieve extremely fast, accurate, and tenacious autofocus; large XA (Extreme Aspherical) elements and three fluorite elements are also incorporated to suppress chromatic aberration which is something that usually occurs in most super-telephoto lenses; an 11-blade circular aperture that adds to the beauty of its smooth, creamy bokeh; extra reach can be achieved with the 1.4x/2.0x teleconverters; Nano AR Coating has been implied to minimise internal reflections so that the lens is highly resistant to flare and ghosting; fluorine front element coating which is used to prevent water, oil, and other contaminants.

Full-time DMF is when the manual focus engages, a switch thats been merged into the rigid magnesium alloy construction. The switch can be turned on to correct the focus when autofocus targets the wrong subject; the lens also provides a fast switching from full-frame to APS-C Format; and for a large focal length lens it can provide smooth power focus which is useful for executing smooth pull focus effects when recording videos.
