SonySony FE 100-400mm GM full-frame lens : In addition to the new Sony A9 mirrorless camera, incorporating world's first stacked full-frame image sensor, Sony also introduced a new lens for its best camera to date. In February 2017 the Sony 85mm and 100mm telephoto prime lenses were announced, now a super telephoto zoom will be added to the professional G Master line-up. The Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 GM OSS (model SEL100400GM) is the furthest reaching E-mount lens. The new full-frame lens maintains the high standard of resolution that is the hallmark of Sony’s flagship lineup of G Master lenses, while also offering incredibly fast, precise AF capabilities, a lightweight, portable design and a variety of professional functions and customisability.

The new FE 100-400mm GM is a super telephoto zoom lens that meets the intense build requirements of Sony’s acclaimed G Master series lens lineup. The Sony full-frame lens produces outstanding corner-to-corner sharpness throughout the lens’ zoom and focus ranges and beautiful rendered ‘bokeh’ or background defocus, ensuring the finest details are brought out in every subject and scene.

The complex design features 22 lens elements configured in 16 different groups, including one Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and two ED glass elements, all of which are working together to minimise chromatic aberration and ensure the ultimate resolution is captured. The telephoto zoom lens lens also has Sony’s original Nano AR coating, which is particularly useful for shooting sports scenes or wildlife, as it reduces unwanted reflections.

Fast and silent AF Performance
In order to keep up with fast-moving action, the new Sony FE 100-400mm GM super telephoto zoom lens features the combination of a double linear motor and a Direct Drive SSM actuator, which also ensures precise, quiet operation. A newly optimised AF algorithm ensure the subject is quickly found and focused on. This ensures that the maximum AF performance of a camera like the new A9 is realised.

The new Sony FE 100-400mm GM lens features built-in optical image stabilisation, ensuring that sharp images can be captured during handheld shooting. The lens also offers a minimum focusing range of just 0.98 metres (3.22 feet), which maximises its versatility in the field, and a 9 bladed circular aperture design that produces soft, beautiful bokeh.

In order to satisfy the extensive demands of customers craving lighter, smaller and more portable super telephoto lenses, the new FE 100-400mm GM weighs in at a mere 1,395 grams (49.3 ounces), making it among the lightest in its class and an ideal fit for Sony’s wide range of compactly designed cameras.

Functionally, the lens has a zoom torque adjustment ring - a first for Sony Alpha - allowing the user to adjust the level of torque in the ring to zoom faster or slower depending on their shooting style. There is also a focus hold button that can also be assigned to variety of functions including focus mode selection, AF area selection or the popular Eye AF lock feature.

The telephoto zoom lens is dust and moisture resistan, and has fluorine coating on the front lens that makes it easier to remove dust or grease. There is also a removable tripod mount.

Sony lens accessories
The Sony super telephoto zoom lens is compatible with both the 1.4x (model SEL14TC) and 2.0x (model SEL20TC) teleconverters, allowing photographers and videographers to shoot at up to 800mm on full-frame cameras and approximately 1200mm (35mm full-frame equivalent) on APS-C cameras. A replacement lens hood (model ALC-SH151) for the new lens will also be available.
