Super-Telephoto Zooms: Canon vs Fujifilm vs Nikon vs Pentax vs Sigma vs Sony vs Tamron

Whether you’re shooting sports, wildlife or something else altogether, sometimes a standard telephoto zoom lens just can’t get you close enough to the action. A supertelephoto zoom lens will extend your reach signifcantly – and there are plenty to choose from.

A zoom range of around 100-400mm has long been a popular option to include in lens ranges (there are four included here), but some manufacturers have been pushing the envelope, super-sizing focal lengths to as much as 600mm.

Apart from the Fujiflm X-mount lens, all of the contenders in this group are fully compatible with both full-frame and cropsensor cameras. Naturally if you fit them to an APS-C format camera, you can extend your effective reach even further, with a 1.5x multiplication effect (1.6x for Canon cameras). Typical attractions include fast autofocus systems and optical image stabilisation, but there can be notable differences in features and performance. Let’s take a look at what’s on offer…
