The new lens is the first large aperture super-telephoto prime to join the E-mount line-up. It claims to have the lightest weight in its class coupled with a well-balanced design and will suit professional sports, wildlife and nature photographers who shoot with Sony’s ?7 cameras.   A member of Sony’s flagship G Master series lenses, this new large aperture super-telephoto prime lens is built mainly from durable magnesium alloy and comes with a strong, lightweight carbon fibre hood. The lens is also dust and moisture resistant, and its front element is coated with fluorine to resist dirt and fingerprints.    It is compatible with Sony’s 1.4x and 2.0x E-mount tele-converters.
The RRP   for this lens is AU$17,999. More information on this lens is available at
