Sony Announces FE 200-600mm and 600mm Lenses; More Info at B&H

B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS Lens and FE 600mm f/4 GM OSS Lens. These lenses become the longest in Sony's lineup and bolster the lens offerings for Sony's full-frame E-mount cameras.

As a G lens, the FE 200-600mm is designed for performance. High-quality optics paired with a fast autofocus system will make it useful for sports, wildlife, and other work where you need to capture distant and fast-moving subjects. A larger lens, it has many optimizations to make handling easier. This includes a large focus and zoom ring, a rotating tripod collar, multiple programmable Focus Hold buttons, and switches on the side to control select functions. A very welcome feature is Optical SteadyShot, which will improve the stability of your images when working at the lens's longest focal lengths.
