Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 GM OSS Announced for a Price of $2,500
The super-telephoto zoom lens features a double linear motor and Direct Drive Super Sonic wave Motor for precise and quiet operation for still and video shooting.
The complex design features 22 lens elements configured in 16 different groups, including one Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and two ED glass elements. These glasses are working together to minimize chromatic aberration and ensure the ultimate resolution is captured. The lens also has Sony’s original Nano AR coating, which is particularly useful for shooting sports scenes or wildlife, as it reduces unwanted reflections.
