Product Features in Detail
World’s lightest 400mm F/2.8 prime lens
At first glance, the unassuming Sony FE 40mm f/2.8 GM OSS lens looks hefty for advanced amateur photographers and hobbyists whose forte is in sports and nature photography. What you’ll find amusing about it is that with its size, it only weighs a little more than 6 pounds. It’s level of portability and handheld maneuverability has never before achieved in a lens of its class.
Durability and reliability
Shooting sporting events and wildlife photography can be an enormous task for photographers especially in terms of weather. Sony addresses this with the FE 400mm F/2.8 GM OSS’s design with a durable magnesium alloy and a strong, lightweight carbon fiber hood withstanding harsh environment conditions. The lens is also dust and moisture-resistant with its front element coated with fluorine to resist dirt and fingerprints.
Easy control system
To further maximise its use for sports and wildlife photographers like you, there are ample number of hard controls on the lens. It includes customisable focus-hold buttons in four different locations on the lens barrel. You can program this for control features like Eye AF functionality if you wish. The lens also has a ‘Full-Time DMF’ switch to immediately engage manual focus at any point and a focus ring that features linear response MF for fine, responsive manual focus.
Additionally, the new lens includes built-in optical stabilisation for dynamic action and three different ‘Mode’ settings, including a brand new Mode 3 setting with an advanced algorithim that ensures easier framing when following moving subjects like animals. It features a function ring with selectable Preset and Function settings which is definitely a first for any Sony lens.
Fast, precise autofocus
The FE 400mm F/2.8 GM OSS lens features two newly developed high-speed XD (extreme dynamic) linear motors that drive the lens’ focus group. It can achieve up to a 5x improvement in moving-subject tracking performance. The specially developed motors are adaptable to motion algorithims to minimise lag and instability, and control noise levels, resulting in exceptionally quick, accurate and quiet autofocus performance. This allows you to capture dynamic, fast moving athletes or wildlife with such ease.
G Master image quality and bokeh
The lens itself is a member of Sony’s flagship G Master series lenses. Its new large aperture super-telephoto prime lens features incredible level of image quality and detail. It also has an outstanding contrast and resolution maintained all the way to the corners of every image. The soft bokeh is produced by its 11-blade circular aperture mechanism. It allows to produce extremely natural and beautiful bokeh backgrounds.
