When you think of street photography, a super-telephoto lens probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But Evan Ranft thought: why not? He teamed up with Chris House to test out a Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS lens in the street. While it still wouldn’t be his first choice for street photography, it does have its perks, and Evan shares his impressions and some photos in this interesting video.
Well, the lens that was apparently up for sale on Yahoo Auctions 10 days ago has now officially been announced by Sony. Yes, the Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS lens is finally here. As is the Sony FE 600mm f/4 GM OSS. They’re massive monsters of lenses, and they’re shipping in only 2 months.
Well, here’s an interesting one. How do you sell a lens that doesn’t actually exist yet? I don’t know, but somebody’s found a way, as there appears to be a brand new Sony 200-600G OSS f/5.6-6.3 FE lens up for sale on Yahoo Auctions Japan. Despite the fact that this lens isn’t even expected to be announced until next week, there are even photos of it in the listing.
