Review:UPDATE Jan 2020: I finally took the lens out in the field--no more static test shots. The lens performed excellently, and I've upgraded my rating from 4 to 5 stars. In my original review, I complained about the bulk. Well, relative to the 500mm and 600mm f/4 monsters that other birders were toting, my kit felt absolutely lightweight. I had no problem carrying and shooting it handheld for a nearly 3-mile hike. I've posted some bird shots. The focus speed, accuracy, and lock-on using an A7RIV were much better than my Nikon kit (D850 and 200-500mm zoom). The 200-600mm keeps up well with the 61MP Sensor, and cropping produces excellent results. Not quite at the level of the exotic long primes, but very close for $8-$10k less! For stationary shots (see the egret shots), the lens is amazingly sharp in good light. I couldn't ask for more from in-body and in-camera IS. However, I wonder if I can extract a bit more sharpness from BIF shots with the OSS turned off. I will experiment. Anyway, for stationary birds, shots up to 400mm are incredibly sharp (as sharp as any 100-400mm lens). However, images are slightly softer at 600mm. ----- (original review follows) I guess I'm a fan of consumer super zooms (see my reviews of the Nikon 200-500, Sigma 60-600, Tamron 150-600). In short, this is the best so far (not surprising; it's the latest). However, it's not a dominant winner. I would not trade the Nikon for the Sony unless I was moving to Sony (which I am). Frankly, I'd pick the Sigma as the best (sharp over its entire range with reasonably fast AF) except that I prefer to shoot handheld. The Sigma is nearly 6 lbs, which is just too big to shoot handheld. The Sony and Nikon are both less than 5 lbs. For me, that pound makes a huge difference. Sharpness is not a distinguishing factor between these lenses. At 500 or 600mm, throw a blanket over the Nikon, Sigma, and Sony (the first generation Tamron trails all three). I have an excellent copy of the Nikon, and really struggle to see a difference between it and the 600mm lenses. Both the Sigma and Sony provide more resolution at the longest focal length (I think the Sigma marginally more than the Sony, but they're really close), but differences between the 3 lenses is marginal. Most will be disappointed by how little the additional 100mm buys you. The Canon (and presumably the Sony 100-400 GM) have a certain "crispness" (micro-contrast) at 400mm not present in the Sony long zoom at 600mm. This is not surprising. I expect a bit more for professional-level lenses. The 200-600 is a (very small) step down but does provide noticeably more resolution. Handling is the distinguishing factor. The Canon (shot on a Sony A7r3) handles like a pancake lens relative to the other behemoths. The IS (image stabilization) locks on like a clamp, and there are few misses. The Nikon's VR (vibration reduction) also locks on during focus, but seems to jump around during shooting. I get more out-of-focus shots with the Nikon, but still a very high proportion in focus. The Sigma is comparable to the Nikon. The Sony's OSS trails the pack. It's OSS Jumps around during focusing and shooting. I get more misses with the Sony than with any other lens. This doesn't mean the OSS is bad--the target was small and 60-70 meters away, so a very difficult test--, it just means that for best focus, use a tripod. For most normal size targets (small birds will be larger and closer than my test target), the OSS should work just fine. A lot has been made of the internal zoom, which is nice. But the result is a 12.5 inch package. I think that my focusing difficulties are directly attributable to the length. Even though it's not extremely heavy, the length makes it hard to hold the kit steady especially compared to the "compact" 100-400. The Canon 100-400mm is slightly more than 8" with adapter. Because the Sony doesn't telescope, I must extend my left hand further out when focusing. I suspect that the difference in arm extension could be 6 inches, a substantial difference. Miscellaneous observations: the internal zoom is nice, but handling might be better if it telescoped like other lenses in this class. The other negative is that the bulk might discourage you from traveling with this lens. I love the short throw of the zoom ring. It takes half a rotation to go from 200 to 600mm. By contrast the Nikon takes about two full rotations to go from 200 to 500mm. Conclusion Overall, this is a very nice offering for Sony wildlife shooters. It is on par with other lenses in this class, but it is not substantially better. The IQ is excellent, albeit a step down from the quality expected from professional-level and exotic primes but clearly better than the first generation Tamron 150-600mm . A Sony shooter with the 100-400GM would be better served adding a 1.4x TC than buying this lens. The 200600 will just add bulk without increasing your keeper rate or IQ. Nikon shooters have no reason to envy this Sony. The Sony probably has faster AF (I will add comments once I test), but the IQ is comparable. However, for Sony nature shooters who can't afford the over $3k 100-400GM + 1.4x TC, this is an "affordable" option that will allow you to get shots that were previously unavailable in Sony mirrorless without major compromises. Accordingly, I highly recommend the Sony as an affordable alternative to the exotic primes, but it is not perfect. Read more

Review:Absolutely amazing lens, very impressed by the crystal clarity of images it produces. Other reviews attest to this. Despite mixed pixel peeper opinions of the 2X teleconverter I decided to give the combination a try, who wouldn't want to DOUBLE the reach of this amazing glass? My experience using an A7RII body, a sturdy tripod and a wired shutter release has proven very positive, blown away by the extreme reach and crispness this combo can produce. Seems to me some of the negative sentiment around the 2X teleconverter may come from people expecting too much, yes the reach is doubled but it's not going to turn your camera into the hubble telescope(!), limitations remain how far away a subject can be while retaining clarity. Stopping the aperture down a few steps and doing everything possible to eliminate any source of movement or vibration makes a significant difference. The sandhill crane images attached to this review illustrate what's possible, shot from around 50 yards distance. All subsequent images are cropped from the first (shot @ 1200mm f16), showing how much detail is retained until the sensor has no more pixels to give. Truly amazing. Would recommend this lens with zero reservations to anyone interested in nature photography, using meticulous technique even better with the 2X teleconverter. Read more

Review:This is a great telephoto zoom with an amazing range. I've owned the 70-300, tamron 150-600 with adapter (both ways, sony a mount with the sony adapter and canon EF mount with a sigma MC-11) and the sony 100-400mm with a teleconverter. The 100-400 is a great lens as well and the fact it's smaller and covers wider focal lengths might make it better for some people. But for me I need more range all the time and my 100-400 had a TC on it all the time. The 200-600 is a less expensive option and has that range all the time. For me I pair it with a a7riv giving me 26mp in crop mode at an effective 900mm range. Because of this resolution and ability to switch with the press of a button I've avoided using teleconverters with this lens and camera combo which has been great. For me the fact the lens has internal zoom makes it much easier to handle in use because its balance stays the same at all focal lengths. This helps with hand holding as well as balancing on a gimbal/ball head. The short throw on the zoom is also nice to make it easy to go from 200 to 600 with only a 90° turn. One knock on it's construction is the 100-400 has a lock on the hood which is awesome. I know the 100-400 is a "GM" lens and the 200-600 is only a "G" but with such a massive hood it'd be nice to have it locked in place. I've read some reviews that say it's "loose", I'm not sure I'd say it's any different than any other lens with a non locking hood but I'll agree it does feel like it's easier to bump when it's as large as it is. I've added a silicone wrist band (like those livestrong bands) up against the hood and it makes it snug, an inexpensive fix. OSS and image quality are top notch with this lens. I will say when using a lens that's 12" on it's own and ~18" when on a body with the hood, you'll need some good technique to hand hold a lens this size even with OSS. Depending on what your shooting using a tripod and ball head or gimbal might be needed. But when you get a good subject you'll get some amazing images. The one negative about this lens' image quality would be it's background blur or "bokeh". It can be a bit busy at times (so can the 100-400 though) and this lens really rewards you for getting some distance between your subject and the background. Read more

Review:After owning this lens for a couple of weeks, I must say that I am impressed by it! It matches my expectations for a GM lens (The glass portion anyway), while not having that price. Likely this is due to it being built in China over Japan, and they worry about possible build quality slips. I have heard about people getting soft images, but this was not my experience. With all of that said, I received mine and it has been spectacular! Using the Sony A7r iii this lens comes alive! I do mostly wildlife photography which is why I picked up this lens and happened to find a willing subject in a Peregrine Falcon! Photo attached with a 100% crop of the eye to show the clarity. It has easily exceeded my expectations and is far superior to the Sigma 150-600 lens I was using previously. I typically shoot it wide open and have no image blur aside from what I accidentally introduce in images. I passed over the 100-400 GM lens + 1.4 teleconverter for this, and I must say that I am quite happy with the results! The only cons I'd say were that I needed to swap to the Lowepro Protactic 450 bag to fit the lens and that it's quite heavy for extended sessions. Read more

Review:Amazing lens. I had the Sony 100-400mm gm and this one is the best! The extra reach worth it! The package didn't came the best protected but the lens was ok after all. Read more

Review:The 3 stars is for Amazon. When I saw the box delivered, I was so upset... This is an expensive item, but they don’t handle it cautiously. The box is so wrecked. Luckily, the lens is totally ok and I have tested it. But Amazon should never treat the lens like this way. It is unacceptable. I will never buy lens from Amazon. It just gave me a heart attack. The lens itself is fantastic. Very sharp and very responsive. Happy with the lens so far. Read more
