A keen eye has purportedly captured the first ever photo of the upcoming Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM lens at the Winter Olympics.
Still on schedule to be released in the summer of this year, the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS has otherwise been kept tightly under wraps (almost literally if you take a look at the photo below). There’s been no further details given to the public other than it is a 400mm full-frame prime lens with a f/2.8 maximum aperture, it has built-in Optical SteadyShot, and will be part of Sony’s G Master series of top-quality lenses. Pricing is expected to be above $10,000, not unlike the ballpark of 400mm f/2.8 lenses from Nikon and Canon.
After the release of the professional sports-oriented Sony a9, buyers quickly noticed that the company lacked depth in the telephoto end of their lens lineup. Hopefully this telephoto prime lens is a sign of things to come from Sony.
