Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lens I've had this lens for about a month and have used it quite a bit. For a large lens it is very easy to handle. I thought I'd have to shoot it on a tripod or at least a monopod but most of my shots have been hand held. The lens is really sharp. The detail is fantastic and the backgrounds just melt away. Worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astonishingly good I've only had my 600F4 for 3 weeks but I've been at one with it from day one. The sharpness is first class as you would expect at this price point. What impresses me most is the beautiful balance. Whilst its around 800g more than a 200-600 6.3 it feels the same. I use this lens almost exclusively hand held for birds in flight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 600mm f4 The very best for bird and wildlife photography. Optically brilliant, super-fast focusing, working seamlessly with the Sony mirrorless camera system. Competitive or beats out all other mirrorless systems for lenses in this category.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Wildlife Lens I've owned many telephoto lenses in the past. This Sony out-performs all others in every aspect! The weight alone is insane, and is easily manageable using handheld. I've used this lens with the A7r IV and A9, and performs beautifully! The image quality is outstanding with some of the best Bokeh I've seen in a telephoto lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 600mm v 200-600mm The 200-600mm Sony lens is so good that I have always wondered just how much better the prime could be. Well now I know - and it is better in every way. I primarily photograph birds so being able to use the teleconverters and still get great quality is a real plus. The difference in f stop actually works out to the difference between getting some shots and not, even in the heady days of high ISO and DeNoise. The lens is surprisingly light in the hand as it is so well balanced. The zoom lens still has its place in my kit bag, but the prime will definitely be my main lens from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal birding lens when coupled with the alpha-1 I have been using this lens for 4 weeks now. I mostly shoot small birds at around 5 to 10 meters distance, always at f4. The majority of shots are in at the sensor pixel sharpness limit on the birds eye and that is hand held. I simply cannot believe how good this setup is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Sony FE lenses It is a dream for all photographers to get hold of this lenses and I managed to buy this lenses one year after it was firstly released. Having tried for a few days, its reputation earned from photographers around the world is once proven again. It is light, fast and with excellent image quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wildlife lens ever!!! Sharp, bright, robust, lightning-quick autofocus work and really light. You can not imagine that 600mm f/4 can be that light - no problem to handhold for long periods of time when working with wildlife, which is nice that you do not need to carry a tripod/monopod for every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its sharp at 1200mm I had a Canon 600mm for ten years and switched to Sony. I bought the Sony 400 f/2.8 and its a great lens but I always wanted just a little more and the Sony 600mm ive me that!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I have been using this lens for a month and it is simply astounding. I have been using it with the A9ii and A7R4 and the focus is extremely precise anywhere from closest focus distance to subjects hundreds of feet away. Color correction is superb and the bokeh is pure butter. This lens works great with the 1.4x converter, as seen in the attached photographs of bears. Weight and balance for a 600 f4 is as good as it gets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond my expectations. This lens is tack sharp, and the dual linear motors make for super fast autofocus. Lens is much lighter and more balanced than any other 600mm I have ever worked with. These benefits are what makes the cost of this lens justifiable for me. I shoot 90% of my images hand held and I am shooting erratic fast moving subjects. This lens allows me to get the job done, and not get beat up in the process. For me - this lens is a dream come true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Utterly sublime Changed my 200-600 for this. I certainly haven't regretted it, this lens is perfect for my wildlife photography. I use it with my A1 which is the ideal combination. A fast lens with superfast focus and amazing bokeh. Resulting images have super intricate detail. I cannot fault the lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best telephoto on the market coming from a Nikon 500F4E FL ED and thought about adding the Nikon 600 but way too heavy. did hours of research and it turns out Sony has the best Pro camera/lens combo and is at least two generations ahead of the competition. decided to add the ultimate setup (A9II + 600GM) for action and birds. the Sony FE 600 GM is as light as my 500mm and is excellent beyond words! if you want the very best, this is it.
