Sony 600 f/4 to be announced (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
It's interesting the interview on sonyalpharumors (https://www.sonyalpharumors.com/yas...o-be-used-on-faster-cameras-than-the-sony-a9/) where the guy said "Unlike the 400mm GM the new 600mm GM is targeted at high-end amateurs (Photographers that shoot birds, wildlife, aircraft). 70-80% of them shoot wildlife."

$13k lens + $4k camera is pretty high-high-high-end. I know some people spend a bit on their hobbies (e.g. RVs, ATVs, high-end rifles, etc.), but $17k (probably more like $25k with the other lenses you'd have) is a lot.

I'll confess to skimming through the Northrup video review of the two lenses. They thought the 200-600 compared well (on the a9) for a fraction of the price. Anyway, the 200-600 is on my to-rent list one of these days.
