Supertelephoto zoom lenses are some of the most versatile out there, suitable for a wide range of genres and scenarios. Sony shooters have a lot of great choices when it comes to such lenses, and this excellent video compares four of the best options from Sony, Sigma, and Tamron.
Coming to you from Stefan Malloch, this awesome video compares four lenses: the Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Contemporary, Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VXD, Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS, and Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS. Personally, I think it is awesome just how many great super-telephoto zoom lenses there are nowadays. Just a decade ago, if you wanted good image quality at ultra-long focal lengths, you had very few options, and those were mostly limited to stratospherically prices professional prime options. Nowadays, consumer-level supertelephoto zooms offer excellent image quality, and thanks to the autofocus and high-ISO performance of modern bodies, the narrower apertures (compared to top-shelf primes) are not as much a hindrance as they used to be. No doubt, it is a great time to pick up such a lens. Check out the video above for Malloch's full thoughts.
