Sony has just unveiled the long-awaited 400mm f/2.8 G Master prime lens. The E-mount ecosystem finally has a fast super-telephoto lens designed to bring sports or wildlife shooters dreams to life!
With a price tag just below the price point of a base Kia Soul with manual transmission, Sony has achieved a lens weighing only slightly more than 6 lbs. The new FE 400mm F2.8 GM OSS lens provides a level of portability and handheld maneuverability that has never before been achieved in a lens of its class. The remarkably light weight of this lens is achieved through an innovative optical design that includes three fluorite elements, with a reduced number of elements deployed at the front of the barrel, as well as the liberal usage of durable magnesium alloy components.
The new FE 400mm F2.8 GM OSS large aperture super-telephoto prime lens will ship in September for about $12,000.
