p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Any fixed focal AF lenses between 150 and 250mm available for e-mount?


Im looking for an 150,180, 200 or even 250mm fixed focal AF lens for e-mount.
(Long focal length macro would also be nice)

As far as I can tell there is nothing out there, or am I missing something?

There used to be tons of 200mm lenses, even with f1.8; f2; f2.8 or f4. But nothing there any more.
Sigma also made an excellent 150mm which does not seem to be avallable for e-mount (and I believe never was).
In older times there also was the occasional lens in the range between 200 and 250mm, but these were rare.

Digging deeper:
Even the manual focus crowd is lacking: I am not aware of a single native e-mount lens in this range.


PS:
Im aware that there are some adaptation solutions. But adapters tend to introduce tilt problems and no transfer of exif data(no 5-axis stabilisation) is a no-go for me.

I think you are out of luck. Cant think of a single lens that fits your requirements.

No primes in that range. Best bet is the Sony 70-200 GM.

There are a small number of lens around 180mm on there, but not easy to source.

I feel a Macro 1x1 at 180-200 would be a good thing from one of the major players, But as MF is ok for Macro, There are a good number of adaptable options.

Canon EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM
Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L USM
Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM

Have distance encoders and should get 5-axis stabilization with a proper adapter along with other EXIF data. I am guessing the EF 200mm F2L IS USM has one too--it is newer than the list I found.

These should also have distance encoders, but I am skeptical about whether those work properly.

Sigma 150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro
Sigma 180mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro
Tamron SP AF 180mm F3.5 Di LD IF

If you want/need fast, reliable AF and high resolution, the native 70-200 GM2 is your best bet, followed by the 70-200 4 Macro. But of course, those are zooms.

If you have a high MP body, would using the Batis 135 or the 135 GM in crop work may be?

However, if you really need/want a prime, the Minolta 200 2.8 (via LA-EA5) might be an option that gives you EXIF. It has nice rendering, is reasonably sharp, but comes with plenty of fringing and an old AF motor.

As for MF: The old CV 180, albeit not cheap, might be a compact MF option. A good adapter (e.g., from Rayqual) won't introduce tilt.

None of the Minolta AF 200mm primes have a distance encoder unfortunately. The F4 G Macro came out a year before Minolta added them to lenses. I have both a Canon EF 200mm F2.8L USM and a Minolta AF 200mm F2.8 G APO and neither compared well with the Tamron 70-180 VXD, except for having a longer focal length. The Canon and Minolta are pretty similar visually. The Minolta handles backlighting better.
