Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS Review

August 19, 2018

I recently got the chance to review the Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS lens for Photographylife. I had a great time with this amazing lens. Sony has done a great job with this one, now if they could only catch up on the weather sealing...

 

Here is an excerpt from my review with my conclusion:

 

"There is minimal chromatic aberration, very little flare when shooting against the light and vignetting is well controlled for a lens of this type. Probably the most surprising element is how well the lens can keep focus when photographing action. When paired with the Sony Alpha 9 body, the combination, for the most part, was able to keep up and at times even exceeded the performance of my venerable Canon 1Dx and EF 200-400 f/4 lens. The only genuine gripe I have with the Sony 100-400mm GM is the performance of its weather sealing which was disappointing during my field test. I was alarmed by how readily condensation found its way onto the back-lens element and internal elements and it leaves me doubting the lens’s ability to be a workhorse in challenging shooting environments. Overall, the Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM performs admirably, with best-in-class features alongside fantastic image quality. If it weren’t for my concerns with the weather sealing, it would receive my highest recommendation. "
