Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS Lens Summary

The Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G Lens is the winner of the prestigious EISA super telephoto zoom lens award 2020-2021, testament to its advanced design and capabilities. The lens offers Sony camera users the versatility of a super telephoto zoom lens while still having a built in optical stabiliser, giving more flexibility when you shoot. With an internal zoom and robust build the lens is dust and moisture resistant so it's perfect for shooting in slightly harsher outdoor conditions. AF is fast and accurate even when teleconverters are being used making full use of advanced Sony AF technologies.

Key features

  • Internal zoom making it faster and more stable
  • Dust / Moisture resistant for outdoor photographers
  • Fast autofocus keeps up with distant subjects
  • Centre weighted for a more balanced feel at longer telephoto lengths
  • 5 ED glass elements and 1 aspherical element deliver high quality, sharp images

Sony has employed their Direct Drive SSM focus mechanism which delivers remarkably fast, accurate focusing. An 11-blade circular aperture allows users to render smooth out of focus areas when isolating subjects from their background, whilst the lens feels solid and well built for years of  reliable service. A number of barrel controls provide control of key features including shale compensation, focus limiter AF/MF and tracking settings.

Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS Lens Full Details

Explore the world with 200-600mm zoom

Perfect for wildlife and more, this 200-600mm super-telephoto zoom can reach as far as 840mm or 1200mm with the Sony E-mount 1.4x TC and 2.0x teleconverter, with full G lens quality and AF performance. Aspherical and ED glass elements achieve superb resolution throughout the zoom range, while Sony’s Nano AR Coating cuts flare and ghosting. The bokeh is gorgeous, too.

Zoom further with teleconverters

Zoom to 600mm, or 1200 with teleconverter

Compatible with optional 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters, for a maximum focal length of 840mm or 1200mm at F13. Both teleconverters are top quality, retaining outstanding image quality and AF performance. Zoom and aperture range with the 1.4x teleconverter is 280-840mm, F8-9. With the 2.0x teleconverter the ranges are 400-1200mm, F11-13.

High quality optics

High resolution throughout the zoom range

Five ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and one aspherical element in a new optical design offer superb resolution and image quality throughout the zoom range. The aspherical element suppresses spherical aberration and distortion, while the ED glass elements minimise chromatic aberration that can be a problem at super-telephoto focal lengths.

Advanced AF system

Fast, precise AF keeps up with swift subjects

Sony's DDSSM (Direct Drive SSM) system has the power and precision needed to drive the lens's mechanism for remarkably fast, accurate focusing. High positioning accuracy means that no movement is wasted. Pinpoint autofocus is achieved with blazing speed. The DDSSM system is incredibly quiet, too.

Bokeh with lens

Beautiful, natural G lens bokeh

An 11-blade circular aperture mechanism adds to the beauty of the bokeh produced by this lens, making it possible to use the narrow depth of field available at super-telephoto focal lengths to produce striking images with deep, creamy G lens bokeh.

Inner zoom gives more reliability

Excellent control and reliability in the field

An inner zoom mechanism means that the length of the lens does not change while zooming, for stable handheld operation with consistent balance. Customisable focus hold buttons are provided in three locations 90° apart for easy access when shooting in any orientation. A fluorine front element coating plus a dust and moisture resistant design ensure high reliability in challenging environments.

Looking to sell your Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS Lens?

Our Verdict

At launch in 2019 the Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G lens was met with equal measures of excitement and hesitation from bird, wildlife and sports photographers. With somewhat smaller apertures users wondered if they would be able to achieve the speed of AF they needed together with smooth backgrounds and subject isolation. Two year later and this super telephoto lens has proved to be incredibly capable, picking up industry awards and countless positive reviews from those who took the plunge. Not only does AF work extremely well with cameras such as the a9, a9 II and other full frame mirrorless bodies, but the low light performance is more than capable thanks to impressive ISO levels achieved by many Sony cameras.

The 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G lens is a hit for wildlife photographers and even lends itself to telephoto portraits with great compression displayed. The focal range of 200-600mm provides excellent reach and can be used with Sony’s teleconverters for extremely distant subjects at up to 1200mm. The lens is well sealed with dust and moisture resistance, while also feeling extremely well balanced on the front of your camera, using an internal zoom mechanism so the length doesn’t change. You can read more about our impressions of this lens here: Sony 600mm and 200-600mm lenses which reinforces our opinion that if you’re in the market for an affordable super telephoto, this model is hard to beat. If you don’t quite need the 600mm reach Sony’s 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 G Master lens comes in a slightly more compact size, delivers excellent sharp images and is also compatible with teleconverters.
