Sony FE 500mm f/4 & 600mm f/4 GM Lenses on the Way!
A recently published Sony lens patent indicates that Sony is working hard on FE 500mm f/4 GM lens and FE 600mm f/4 GM lens. Just like the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS lens (which plans to launch in summer 2018), these two Sony FE 500mm f/4 & 600mm f/4 GM lenses are targeting professional sports, wildlife, and news photographers (Sony a9 users) who need incredibly sharp and fast glass to capture fast moving and elusive subjects. Release date is expected to be at least half year before 2020 Tokyo Olympic Game.

Tony Northrup shared his opinion about these two new super telephoto lenses: “These are really important as they’ll allow Sony to compete against Canon and Nikon for high-end wildlife shooters. They’re also key lenses for some pro sports photographers.”
