Hand on Review of Sony FE 200-600mm and 600mm Lenses

Sony FE 200-600 and 600 lens review

Shawn C. Steiner has just posted a review of the newly announced Sony FE 200-600 F5.6-6.3 G OSS lens (AmazonB&HAdorama) and Sony FE 600mm F4 GM OSS lens ( Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama).

He spent his weekend testing both the super telephoto lenses on Sony A9 (AmazonB&H/ Adorama) and found:

“Used the 600mm prime and 200-600mm lens at the same time has, unfortunately, led to some unfair comparisons. The 200-600mm is not as fast when it comes to autofocus, nor is it as sharp when working wide open. This isn’t to denigrate it—it’s perfectly acceptable, considering its price and standard G branding. I would recommend stopping down a hair when you can and, though teleconverters are a lot of fun, the 1.4x will serve you better than the more demanding 2x that I used.

Everything else about the lens is solid. The lens is weather sealed and feels like it can hold up to enduring some adventures. Optical SteadyShot is very good and works very well with cameras that offer in-body stabilization. Focusing is fast with the DDSSM AF system, and worked very well when tracking subjects. The front element has a fluorine coating that should help keep it clean…”
