For the sports and wildlife photographers, look forward to the Sony G Master 400mm f2.8 FE Lens.
In addition to the company’s new Sony a7r III and Sony 24-105mm f4 G OSS lens, the company is announcing the development of their new Sony G Master 400mm f2.8 FE Lens. This new lens is coming in Summer 2018 and is Sony’s first super telephoto prime. The company has super telephoto zoom lenses, but this is the first very long prime that the FE lineup of lenses will get. In case you’re wondering, a lens like the Sony G Master 400mm f2.8 FE Lens may find its way not only in the hands of sports and wildlife photographers, but also with photojournalists.
Keep in mind also that Sony has teleconverters that will give a lens like the Sony G Master 400mm f2.8 FE Lens even more reach. When combined with a camera like the Sony a9, it’s bound to be a formidable beast for wire journalists who may also be tethered to a gigabit ethernet connection.
Details on the new lens aren’t really available as this is a development announcement. So I guess we’re just going to need to stay tuned and see what happens.
