The MUST HAVE Sony LENS for Wildlife & Sports Photography | Sony 200-600mm f5.6-6.3 Review
I had the chance to take the Sony 200-600mm f5.6-6.32 out into the Real World to shoot at the zoo as well as a basebaell game.  The reason this is a must have lens for wildlife and sports photographers is you will be hard pressed to find another lens that matches it’s speed and quality.  The one thing that’s important to point out is the lens goes to f6.3 at 301mm.  The Nikon 200-500 is a 5.6 all the way through.  I would have hoping this lens would go to 6.3 only in the last 100mm.

  1. Sony A7R iii + 200-600mm what you think about this combinations? I have doubt about noise, your review please 🙏

  2. No thanks, I will stick with my 300mm f/2.8 ED-IF AIS and 600mm f/4 ED-IF AIS Nikkors. I can count the hairs on a fly's ass at 100+ feet with both of these superlative "old school glass" lenses mounted on my D850.

  3. what bag do you suggest for the 200-600 with the sony a7r3 attached? something quick, Digital Holster 150 Delivers Quick Access. thank you

  4. No, you do not have to have this lens. It is just an overpriced version of the Tamron 150-600mm lens. that really not that good anyway.

  5. I'm wondering which one will be better, Sigma 60-600mm or Sony 200-600. I have a Sony A7iii with the Metabones IV EF-E mount t where I install my Canon lenses and work awesome. Sigma is a very sharp lens as well and aparently the focus is very fast as well. I need opinion

  6. Yes, the Sony 200-600mm 5.6-6.3 is a fantastic lens. Is the 600mm 4.0 GM overpriced? I don't think so, it is more or less playing in the same league as the Nikon or Canon versions. And for sharpness reasons I would not spend additional 12000 USD on a Sony 600mm 4.0. I think if you do this then it is for the additional 5% or 10% you can get on Bokeh and or resolution and also handling / quality. Some people also buy these lenses just to show off (yes, it is like this). I don't care actually, I use the Sony 200-600mm 5.6-6.3 on a Sony A7R4 and this combo really rocks. In low light situations I may use the Sony A9 for cranking up the ISO. I think this is an excellent versatile and powerful lens at a reasonable price. Well done, Sony.

  7. I am not impressed at all. I also watched your review on the Sigma 60-600mm Sport and the 150-600mm Sport. You also shot the eagle, probably from the same zoo, I can swear the eagle shots you got at 600mm from the Sigma with the Canon 7D and EOS R were a billion times better than the shot you got from the Sony above or at least that was what it looked like in the video.

  8. I love all of your videos although i rarely leave a comment. I am about to upgrade from my very outdated t3i to Sony. Probably a7iii…this lens looks awesome. Thank you!

  9. I'd love a review of this lense with A7R III (or better an A7R IV if you can get it again) compared to A9 here. Very curious about the R series and this lens for wildlife (mostly birds fast shutter and low light).

  10. Question: Did you need press credentials to get that lens in the ball park? I know some parks have policies that would keep a fan from bring a beast like that in.

  11. Jared,

    Thanks for your excellent reviews! They are enjoyable as well as informative,

    A minor gripe: I wish that the 200-600mm lens had a tripod mount that was grooved for an Arca Compatible clamp. I use Arca clamps on all of my tripods and monopods and have replaced the foot of my Sony 70-200mm f/4 G OSS lens with an after market tripod ring that incorporates Arca grooves. which works great. I like it better than a separate plate on a non-grooved foot!
    I will probably be using this on my A6500 or A6400 cameras/ Wow! A 300-900mm f/5.6-6.3 lens with OSS in both the lens and the camera if used on the A6500!
    Combine this with my 70-200mm on the A6400 and I would have the effective focal range of 105-900mm covered with no gaps and with OSS (either lens or body) all the way!

  12. If I was a Sony shooter I would go for the Sony 200-600mm rather than Sigma or Tamron. Looks an awesome combo on that A9, ideal for sports and wildlife.

  13. can you do a video on the Sony FE PZ 28-135mm F4 G OSS on with lenses are the same from sigma or zeiss or ronikon….that shoot the same as that sony FE PZ 28-135mm F4 G OSS

  14. 900$ is it worth it ?
    Panasonic Lumix GX9 Hybrid Pack Silver + G Vario Lens 12-32 mm f / 3.5-5.6 Asph. Mega O.I.S. + G Vario lens 35-100 mm f / 4.0-5.6 Asph. Mega O.I.S. + Lens G 25 mm f / 1.7 Asph. + 16GB SD Memory Card

  15. Tamron 150-600, version one nikon, $750 brand new. Tack sharp at 600mm and an endless supply of super cheap 24 megapixel crop sensors that have higher dxomark scores than canon 7d mark II. So go ahead. I dare you to be stupid 🤗 Or you could go with less megapixels with the nikon d500, because every wildlife shooter knows: image resolution is soo not important. Go ahead. Be stupid, I dare you.

  16. Hi Jared! Would you recommend this 200-600mm for aviation photography? By the way, what's that little black box attached to your camera's hot shoe?
