Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM in de­vel­op­ment

Amateur Photographer - - 7 Days -

IN SURELY one of the least sur­pris­ing photo- gear an­nounce­ments of re­cent times, Sony has re­vealed that it is also work­ing on a 400mm f/2.8 tele­photo prime lens de­signed to be used with the high-speed Al­pha 9 full-frame mir­ror­less cam­era. De­tails are scarce, with Sony merely say­ing that the new op­tic will be part of the firm’s top- end G Mas­ter lens line-up. Some­what dis­ap­point­ingly, the 400mm f/2.8 is due to ap­pear in sum­mer 2018 – a full year af­ter the ap­pear­ance of the Al­pha 9 – which will leave sports shoot­ers work­ing with adapted third-party op­tics for some months yet.
