Sony 500mm f/4 G SAL500F40G

 

If you have a cool AU$17,000 to spare, perhaps this 500mm telephoto lens is worth your wad of cash.

We also need to establish that this lens is definitely outside the reach of most photographers, priced at AU$16,999 in Australia. It's a well-oiled professional machine with weather resistance on interlocking seals on the focus ring and the front and...

Sony SAL500F40G

 

Excellent image quality - does exactly what I wanted. Coupled with the Sony 1.4 converter, image quality is still amazing. Handles well and the tripod collar/handle feels comfortable. Construction feels very robust. Same button layout as the Sony 300mm.

Bulk - but it is a 500mm lens, so no surprise! Cost.
