Le Sony FE 200-600mm f/5,6-6,3 G OSS | Test Chasseur d’Images

Le Sony FE 200-600mm f/5,6-6,3 G OSS | Test Chasseur d’Images
Ce télézoom extrême, plus long que le FE 100-400 mm, permet à Sony de prendre encore de l’avance sur les concurrents (Canon et Nikon), en augmentant son offre d’objectifs en monture directe. Pour les EOS R et les Nikon Z, il faut passer par une bague de conversion.
Sony a fait le choix d’un objectif dont la longueur ne varie pas avec la focale. Les quelque 25 mm gagnés grâce à la monture courte pour hybride le permettent. La prise en main est bonne et l’agrément d’utilisation au rendez-vous — avec les boîtiers Alpha 7, un peu moins avec un Alpha à capteur APS-C. Pour améliorer encore ce point, on peut visser sous l’appareil une poignée accessoire. Elle facilite le cadrage en vertical.
L’objectif est vraiment bien construit. Les boutons fonctions et les réglages fins de la stabilisation et de la distance de mise au point sont autant d’atouts…

Graceful mountains that are not too tall
Calm, clear, and shimmering water
A strong ocean breeze dances
in an attempt to bring everything together as one
