Overview


Master Super-Telephoto Lens

FE 600 mm F4 GM OSS

Fast autofocus plus stunning G Master resolution and gorgeous bokeh in a lightweight, well-balanced, mobile lens.

Sony's original XA lens and XD linear motor technologies contribute to peak optical and mechanical performance, making it possible to capture dynamic, eye-catching images from afar. Ideal for sports, news, and nature photography.

Outstanding mobility: lightest in its class

A weight of just 3,040 grams, including tripod mount, makes this lens balance ideally with compact, lightweight E-mount camera bodies, for easy handling and control. Smooth, precise panning is possible handheld or monopod-mounted.

Reliability and durability for challenging conditions

A dust- and moisture-resistant design provides the reliability needed for outdoor use in challenging conditions, and the front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants. A rigid magnesium alloy is used not only for the lens barrel exterior and tripod mount area, but critical areas of the barrel interior as well, for maximum strength and durability.

 

New large XA element delivers superb resolution and bokeh

An exacting G Master optical design employs three fluorite elements to suppress chromatic aberration that can be a problem in telephoto lenses. A large XA (extreme aspherical) element is also included to eliminate onion-ring bokeh. Each lens is individually calibrated to achieve the ideal balance between resolution and bokeh. Optional high-performance 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters with XA elements are also available.

 

XD Motors for fast, precise, tenacious AF

Two XD (extreme dynamic) linear motors provide fast, precise AF and reliable tracking. The SEL600F40GM brings out the best in modern camera bodies, effortlessly maintaining accurate focus on fast-moving sports and wildlife subjects. A control algorithm developed specifically for these motors contributes to fast positioning of the large focus group with minimum delay and vibration.

Additional Features:

Gorgeous G Master bokeh

In addition to including a new large-aperture XA (extreme aspherical) element with extremely high surface precision, each lens is individually calibrated to control spherical aberration so that gorgeous G Master bokeh is optimally balanced with high resolution. An 11-blade circular aperture further adds to the beauty of the lens's smooth bokeh.

Extra reach with 1.4x/2.0x teleconverters

Optional high-performance 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters are available. The 2.0x teleconverter extends the focal length lens to 1,200 mm (1,800 mm on an APS-C body) with F8 maximum aperture, while maintaining outstanding optical quality as well as AF speed and precision.

Flare-resistant for superior clarity

Sony's original Nano AR Coating, flocking on critical interior surfaces, and other design refinements minimize internal reflections so that the lens is highly resistant to flare and ghosting, which can degrade image clarity. Rendering is crisp and clear even in difficult light. (1. Nano AR coating / 2. Glass / 3. Transmitted light)

Light and well-balanced for easy shooting

A low weight of just 3,040 grams and sublime balance make it possible to take full advantage of outstanding optical performance even when shooting handheld or on a monopod, all thanks to technology inherited from the SEL400F28GM. With a compact, lightweight E-mount body, the centre of gravity is ideally located for smooth, precise panning.

3-mode Optical SteadyShot

Optical image Stabilization makes it easier to shoot sharp images handheld at super-telephoto focal lengths. MODE 2 offers ideal Stabilization for panned shots, while MODE 3 provides enhanced viewfinder Stabilization, allowing easier framing of dynamic sports or wildlife action. 5-axis Stabilization is available with compatible α bodies.

Rigid magnesium alloy barrel components

A high-rigidity magnesium alloy used for the lens barrel exterior, tripod mount, and critical interior components provides the dual benefits of outstanding durability and reduced weight, both advantages when shooting in challenging situations and environments.

Fluorine front element coating

The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants, while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants or fingerprints that do become attached to the lens surface.

Lightweight carbon fibre lens hood

This lightweight, durable carbon fibre lens hood also features a flocked interior that maximizes its effectiveness at blocking unwanted light, which can degrade image quality.

Rigid, durable mount design

Designed to withstand the rigors of professional use, the number of screws used to attach the mount has been increased and other refinements have been applied to ensure maximum rigidity and reliability.

Trunk-style dedicated hard case

A specially designed trunk-style carrying case protects the lens from shock and vibration during transportation.

Versatile function ring

A versatile, convenient function ring can be switched to preset focus, assigned function control, or no function via the mode selector.

Dust- and moisture-resistant design

A dust- and moisture-resistant design provides the reliability needed for outdoor use in challenging conditions.

Natural, linear manual focus response

Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually. Focus ring rotation translates directly to a corresponding change in focus, so control feels immediate and precise.

Four Customizable focus hold buttons

Customisable focus hold buttons are provided in four locations for easy access when shooting in any orientation. The focus hold buttons can also be Customised via a camera menu that allows assignment of other functions, such as Eye AF, as required.

Full-time DMF

When the FULL TIME DMF switch is ON, manual focus is automatically engaged when the focus ring is operated, even in the AF-C mode. This capability can be used to correct focus when autofocus targets the wrong subject, for example. It is also a great way to refine focus after initial autofocus when shutter button half-press autofocus is disengaged.

Instantly focus to a predefined point

Once a predefined focus point has been memorised via the SET button, rotating the function ring will instantly recall the preset focus point if the PRESET mode is active. This is an ideal way to preset focus points for fast sports action, for example. It works in the AF and MF modes, and is unaffected by focus range limiter settings.

Smooth power focus

If the function ring mode switch is set to FUNCTION and the power focus function is assigned, rotating the ring causes the lens to focus smoothly in the specified direction at a speed determined by the degree of rotation. Power focus is useful for executing smooth pull focus effects when shooting movies.

Fast switching from full-frame to APS-C

If the function ring mode switch is set to FUNCTION and the APS-C/full-frame switching function is assigned, the function ring can be rotated to instantly switch between APS-C and full-frame view angles (supported by the latest the α9 software version).

Slide-in filter slot

A filter slot accepts standard 40.5-mm ND and other filter types, as well as the optional VF-DCPL1 circular polarizing filter. The VF-DCPL1 circular polarizing filter can be rotated for optimum effect while installed in the lens.

Durable, versatile tripod mount

The lens's tripod mount is equipped with bearings that enhance durability while promoting smooth rotation. There are also 90° click stops that can be switched ON or OFF according to the user's preference: ON for sure, fast 90° positioning, or OFF for reduced resistance and smooth rotation.

Focus range limiter for faster focus

A focus range limiter switch makes it possible to limit the lens's autofocus range to 4.5 through 15 metres, 15 metres to infinity, or allow full-range autofocus with no limit. This can speed up autofocus in some situations by preventing the lens from focusing on subjects outside the target range.
