  • Summary: To be honest, the Sony 500 mm f/4 telephoto lens is out of our league. I am no professional photographer and the experience of walking around with a 2.5 kg lens on my camera was new to me. It was the first time in my life I used a 1000 mm (using the tele-converter) lens with a field of view that equals a 1500 mm lens on a camera with a full frame sensor. Without a tripod, this large and heavy lens can only be used successfully by very experienced photographers.
  • Pros: High quality ultra-telephoto for sports and wildlife; sharp to the edge, low chromatic aberration, low distortion, insensitive to flare, Extremely fast AF, Rugged weather- and dust-resistant design, Longest-ever focal length G Lens from Sony, Bright f/4.0 aperture for superior light gathering, Compatible with IBIS (in body image stabilization) in all Sony α cameras
  • Cons: A large and heavy lens like this is much more difficult to handle than telephoto zoom lenses like the (excellent), High price
