Sony FE 100-400mm size comparison and hands-on by Jason Lanier

Share

100-400mm GM vs 70-200 GM vs 70-300

With all that Sony A9 news storm we didn’t report much about the new 100-400mm FE GM lens. You can play around with the lens size comparisons at Camerasize. And Jason Lanier posted his 100-400mm FE lens hands-on video.

From what I heard from the early Sony testers the Lens Image Quality is great and more importantly the autofocus with the A9 is super fast:

If Jordan and Chris say so than hell yes…DSLR is over folks! Well not know, but soon. And the recon that DSLR will never be extinct and always remain as a niche. But they think (as I do) that the Sony A9 is just the beginning of the End for the classic DSLR cameras.
