Someone has to start this thread..

A lot of folks in the U.S. and Canada will have the new Sony 200-600mm in the next few days. Judging from the frenzy in the 64-page rumor/pre-order thread, this is a very popular lens from Sony. Please post your shots from this lens here so we can all enjoy them.

Thanks!

Douglas

I was about to say, what's up with that, Douglas?

Here is mine plus a significant crop from June 19 but I "cheated" a little since I was using a trial copy provided by Sony

Hi Douglas,

I am happy for you. I look forward to hearing your evaluation and seeing your results. Unfortunately I have equipment for sale on several sites including the FM B/S forum. No luck so far selling anything.

Thanks for posting the first images in this thread, Joshua! Judging from how sharp your pictures look, this is a lot of lens for $2000. But then again, anything looks good coming from you.

Thank you, Douglas! That image (and the crop, of course) taken at wide open at ISO 400 using continuous LED lighting was edited only using LR with minimal adjustment. And you are right, that lens looks very promising. I can't wait to get my paw on it tomorrow morning.

Thx, that was one proud bird. He hopped back and forth with his meal, very cooperative, occasionally even ventured into actual light (as shown above).

My first ever birding shots, with the 200-600mm lens. I've got a lot to learn, but wow is this lens fun.

PS
Shot through a wall of bushes, which is why it looks like I've got massive debris on the sensor.

I tried to do a brick wall comparison between the 100-400 (and +1.4 TC) vs the 200-600 today but messed up the exposure. The 200-600 is really sharp, the 100-400 doesn't have anything on the 200-600 in terms of sharpness. I don't know about the AF yet.

I got mine and took some shots of my dogs and I have to agree, it was super sharp in my limited test shots. I'll have to put it through some paces tomorrow.

I compared the 200-600mm at the long end with the prime lens. I couldnít tell much of a difference. The difference, if any, would not matter much under real life shooting conditions, for sure. Where it matters more is in the ability to isolate the target of the prime lens. The shallower depth-of-field at f/4 compared to that of f/6.3 plays a role in the rendition. Although the target is only marginally or barely any "sharper" for lack of a better word but it does appear sharper since the background is rendered softer due to the shallower depth-of-field. In other words, the bokeh of the 200-600mm zoom at the same 600mm is noticeably busier.

In addition, and this is what Sony was touting at the event presentation I attended, the difference in the AF performance between the two is where the rubber (or your money) meets the asphalt. Of course, it applies more to situations of fast-paced actions, like birds in flight, etc. What good is the sharpness if the target is slightly out of focus since the lens cannot keep up? Don't get me wrong, the 200-600 is no slouch in the AF performance but yet, the prime lens has a better AF system due to the 2 XD (extreme dynamic) linear motors, providing faster, more precise AF and more reliable tracking. If I think it is easy to understand the difference between the 2 lenses in that aspect, if we use the difference in the AF performance between that of the A9 and that of the A7r III as an analogy.
