This compact, professional, ultra-length telephoto zoom features Sony’s G Master resolution, and delivers images with the highest resolution, exceptional contrast, and stunning bokeh, taking your sports, wildlife, action and landscape photography to levels you’ve only dreamed about.
Sony’s Optical SteadyShot, a built-in image-stabilization system, makes sure your images stay sharp at all focal lengths—including the slowest shutter speeds—even during hand-held shooting. On some cameras, this can be combined with the built- in image stabilization, which will give you even more control.
The advanced optics in this lens are impressive. The 16-group/22-element design utilizes one super extra-low dispersion element and two extra-low dispersion elements to virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations, while Sony’s Nano AR coating minimizes ghosting and lens flare. As a result, you’ll get clear, high-fidelity images with super high contrast.
The Direct Drive SSM Autofocus is fast, barely audible, and precise, making it perfect for both still photography and video. A handy Focus Hold button sets your settings once you’ve found your shot, and you can toggle effortlessly between auto and manual focus using the AF/MF switch whenever you want to rely on your skills to fine-tune your image. An internal focusing system ensures that only the lens elements move while the lens barrel stays steady.
The Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6GM OSS’s nine-rounded blade aperture combines with G Master technology to make your depth-of-field smooth, and you can use the manual aperture ring to fine-tune your exposure.
Since the lens is weather resistant, it will perform no matter what nature brings your way. It’s compatible with full-frame and crop-frame (APS-C) Sony E-mount cameras.
