Sony’s ‘G Mas­ter’ lenses are high-per­for­mance models (fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of the leg­endary Mi­nolta G se­ries) and the 100-400mm is an FE mount zoom for the A7 and A9 se­ries mir­ror­less cam­eras. It’s weath­er­proofed, of course, and em­ploys Sony’s ‘Op­ti­cal SteadyShot’ im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion which gives up to four stops of cor­rec­tion. A zoom torque ad­just­ment al­lows you to set the zoom­ing col­lar’s ac­tion ex­actly to your lik­ing. The min­i­mum fo­cus­ing dis­tance is 98 cen­time­tres which, at 400mm, de­liv­ers a mag­ni­fi­ca­tion ra­tio 1:2.8 (i.e. nearly one-third life­size) which means smaller crit­ters will still be re­pro­duced quite large in the frame. The 22-el­e­ments op­ti­cal con­struc­tion in­cludes three spe­cial types to deal with chro­matic aber­ra­tions and Sony’s ‘Nano AR Coat­ing’ helps max­imise con­trast by ef­fec­tively re­duc­ing in­ter­nal re­flec­tions. $3999.
