Chatter from CP+ show: The Sony 400mm GM autofocus will be “way faster” than the Canon and Nikon lenses


Some of the folks present at the Cp+ show shared two insights on the new Sony 400mm f/2.8 FE GM lens

1) Autofocus:
The Sony will focus “way faster” than the Canon 400mm and Nikon 400m lens. The reason is the new hardware tech used by the lens (new actuators and servo).

2) Lighter:
The new 400mm GM lens will be also lighter than the Canon/Nikon competition

No word on the possible pricing yet but the lens will be announced this summer and be available in September according to BHphoto.
