Sonyalpharumors Thinks There is a New Sony Wildlife Lens Coming Out Next Week

Our wacky friends at Sonyalpharumors have an SR4 (almost a certainty) alert out about a new lens that they think will be a long telephoto 400 – 600 range).

(SR4) Sony likely to announce a new new wildlife/sports lens on June 5/6!

I find that very interesting.  I’m in the market for a long lens and I have toyed with the idea of getting the Sigma 150 – 600 but I’d love to see Sony give us a native lens.  I figure the native autofocus would be amazing.  What might also be amazing (in a bad way) is the price.  Sony lenses have e a pretty stiff premium and anything north of $4K would start seeming exorbitant even to me.  But I’d still rent it to try it out so bring it!

    Really good telephoto lenses are pricey as all get out. Zeiss being QUITE pricey. As for Hasselblad lenses – I should be so wealthy.

      You’re not kidding. But sharp glass is my secret vice.

    I’ve never gone out and spent stupid money on a tall lens. The best I’ve ever had is a mid-range A Mount Sony G 70-300. Looking back over my shots, I find that a lot of my favorites were taken by this lens. I’ve also discovered that the lens on a LE EA 4 adaptor works on my more recent E mount cameras. And, when mounted on my ASP-C sensor A6300, it performs as 105mm-450mm.

    Below is a shot with this lens on my old A850.

      That A-850 had great colors didn’t it? Yeah, I’m also repelled by the idea of spending thousands for a telephoto. But I’m interested in renting a good one for a few hundred for the right wildlife opportunity.
