    Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS Announcement

      News

    Professional users of mirrorless Sony cameras can finally complete their arrays with a new bright FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS lens which has been announced for a long time.

     

    The lens has been designed having in mind sports photographers as well as the ones wanting to catch wildlife in movement – the combination of the above in the form of, for instance, a bear on a skateboard is, of course, possible.

    The optical system of the new Sony lens is based on 23 lenses placed in 17 groups, 3 of which are low-dispersion fluorite lenses. In order to ensure good balance of the lens, the lenses have been placed in the central and rear parts of the system. The lenses are covered with anti-reflective and fluorine coatings, which enable keeping them clean.

    The lens is equipped with a 11-blade aperture. Two newly-designed linear motors, which are supposed to facilitate the tracking of moving objects, are responsible for the functioning of the autofocus. At our disposal, we have 3 modes of image stabilization and a sharpening clutch. On the side of the lens, we have function buttons, including Full-Time DMF switch, which enables continuous manual sharpening.

    One of the main advantages of the lens is its construction. It has the dimensions of 158 x 359mm, it weighs only 2.7kg and it is supposed to enable, in special circumstances, photographing ”from hand”. The lens is made of magnesium and is, of course, sealed. Inserted filters with the diameter of 40.5mm can be used on the lens. In the case of using 1.4x and 2x converters, the brightness will decrease by, respectively, f/4 and f/5.6.

    Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS will appear on sale in September. The enthusiasm may be cooled down by the price of the lens since, as at today, it will cost $12000.

      The second lens which had its premiere today is Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR, an ultra-wide angle zoom which ensures the equivalence of 12-24mm f/2.8. This lens will surely be gladly welcomed by many landscape and architecture photographers.

      Inside a new wide-angle Fujijon zoom we will find the optical system consisting of 20 elements, placed in 13 groups. Among them there are 4 aspheric lenses, which are supposed to control distortions and spherical aberrations, as well as 3 ED elements and 3 super-ED ones. Additionally, the back part of two front lenses is covered with the Nano-GI coating, which is supposed to eliminate light leaks and flares caused by a diagonal incidence of light on optical elements.

      A 9-blade aperture with a nominal f/2.8 hole, which can be closed up to f/22, is responsible for image plasticity. The construction of the lens is supposed to guarantee the advanced image reproduction functions within the whole range of apertures and focal lengths.

      2 liner autofocus motors are responsible for focusing. This should positively influence the speed and precision of focus adjustment – also from the minimum focus distance of 25 cm.

      New Fujinon is also supposed to work effectively in hard, demanding conditions. The tube is made of magnesium and it is additionally sealed in 11 places. As a result, the lens is to be resistant to dust, splashes and low temperatures (-10° C). The lens weighs 805g and it has the dimensions of 122 x 88mm.

      Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR is to appear on sale at the end of November. It will cost $2000.

      Today Fuji also presented an updated map of lenses. We've found three interesting constructions there: XF 33mm f/1 R WR which ensures the equivalence of 50mm f/1.5, wide-angle fixed lens 16mm f/2.8 and a stabilized zoom 16-80mm f/4.

      DESCRIPTION OF SONY RX100 VI 
      Sony RX100 series are the most advanced compact cameras on the market. They are often used by professionals when the use of heavy professional cameras with replaceable optical system is not possible or does not make sense.

      RX100 VI is equipped with the 1'' sensor, in Exmor RS technology, with the resolution of 10.1Mp. The ISO range of 125 to 12800 can be extended to ISO 80 to 25600. Thanks to the use of Bionz X processor, together with LSI chip and dedicated DRAM memory, the camera's efficiency enables taking photographs with the speed of 24f/s, or even 233 JPEG photographs in the 'Fine' quality in the buffer. The camera offers the fastest  autofocus in its class, based on 315 phase-detection points, with 65% frame coverage. The focusing time is 0.03s.

      Videos will be recorded in 4K HDR, in the resolution of 3840x2160, with the use of the Hybryd Long Gamma profile. Full HD materials will be recorded with the speed of 120f/s, and in slow motion, the camera will be able to record even 1000 frames per second.

      The lens of Sony RX100 VI is equipped with the zoom with the equivalent of 24-200mm and it is based on 15 lenses (10 aspherical ones, including 2 low-dispersion ones), placed in 12 groups. The aperture range is f/2.8 - f/4.5, and the new processor will be able to reduce greater noise of photographs taken in low light. 

      Sony RX100 VI is equipped with a full touch LCD screen with the resolution of 1228 thousand points. The screen can be folded by 180 degrees upwards and by 90 degrees downwards. This should certainly satisfy vloggers and selfie-lovers. The camera has a retractable electronic  viewfinder with the resolution of 2359 thousand points and the flash.
