Sony unleashed its long-awaited, behemoth 400mm f/2.8 Master Prime Lens and its everything we hoped for and more. This monstrous super-telephoto lens is superbly designed to capture epic sports moments and beautiful wildlife with ease.

This lens is the first super-telephoto prime in Sony’s E-mount lineup, and it totally overshadows the previous 100-400mm G Master lens in every aspect of performance. It has two new XD Linear Motor drives that delivers higher thrust than conventional types, which helps it to achieve up to 5 times more improvement in moving-subject tracking performance with current and future camera bodies. Because of its innovative optical design that reduces the amount of elements at the front of the lens barrel, along with its magnesium alloy components, its the lightest of its kind at just 102.2oz, making it easier to maneuver. Not to mention, this beast has a stunning G Master resolution and bokeh, which leads to crisp, amazing resolution and contrast every time. Take complete control of your shots with this lens, as it includes customizable focus-hold buttons, a full-time DMF switch and three optical stabilization modes. This will set you back quite a bit, but it’s worth every penny.
