Sony Alpha FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM Super Telephoto Zoom Lens

The Sony Alpha FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM Super Telephoto Zoom Lens is a full-frame super telephoto zoom that provides exceptional sharpness, fast AF and a compact design despite outstanding performance. Like other products in the G Master lens series, this lens has a high standard of resolution. Amateur enthusiasts and professional photographers alike will find the FE 100-400mm GM to be a powerful zoom ideal for capturing sports or wildlife.

High-Performance Image Stabilization

High-performance Optical SteadyShot image stabilization is built right into the lens for sharp, blur-free images with a wide range of subjects and handheld shooting. The stabilization lens is driven by a linear motor for fast, precise compensation. Additionally, 5-axis image stabilization becomes available when used with Alpha series cameras that feature built-in image stabilization

Extraordinary Detail and Bokeh

The Sony Alpha FE 100-400mm GM provides outstanding sharpness combined with smooth bokeh in the same lens. It achieves spatial frequency of 50 lines pairs per millimeter at a lens' widest aperture while simultaneously producing beautiful bokeh. 22 lens elements in 16 groups, including one Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and two ED glass elements, help minimize chromatic aberration and provide unprecedented corner-to-corner resolution. The high resolution of this lens helps to enable superior reproduction with high contrast. Sony's Nano anti-reflective coating makes it a great lens for sports or wildlife scenes, minimizing unwanted reflections, flare and ghosting.

Fast, Quiet and Precise Focus

The FE 100-400mm GM super telephoto zoom lens features a double motor system that helps maximize AF performance and keep up with fast-moving action. The Direct Drive Supersonic Wave Motor (DDSSM) drives the heavy front focus lens group, and the Double-linear motor system enables rapid acceleration of the main lens group for capturing sudden subject motion. With high precision positioning control and a newly optimized AF algorithm, the FE 100-400mm GM quickly finds and focuses on your subject.

Professional Operability

This lens is designed for both professionals and enthusiasts who want instant and direct control. Quickly switch between auto and manual focus via the AF/MF focus mode switch on the side, depending on how much focusing control you desire. A focus range limiter switch can either let the lens hunt through the focal range or limit the range from 3m to infinity for faster focusing on distant subjects. There are other switches and buttons for image stabilization compensation and customizable focus hold. Operating this lens is easy for amateurs and pros.

Removable Rotating Tripod Mount

A removable, versatile lens tripod mount lets you quickly remove the camera from a tripod when you need a handheld solution. This mount features a revolving mechanism to let you quickly change between landscape and portrait orientation. It also has a secure lock mechanism to prevent accidental detachment.

9-blade Circular Aperture

The 9-blade circular aperture contributes to gorgeous bokeh in which the subject stands out against a smoothly defocused foreground and background as well as perfectly round points of defocused light. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing, polygonal shaped defocused points of light. Alpha lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular.

Lightweight Design

Photographers or videographers who want a lighter, smaller and more portable option will find it with this super telephoto lens. The FE 100-400mm GM weighs just 49.3 ounces, among the lightest in its class and ideal for Sony's compact cameras.
