XD linear motors
Sony’s latest full-frame E-mount cameras, the new FE 600mm F4 GM OSS lens features two XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors that drive the lens’ focus group to provide fast, precise AF and reliable subject tracking. These motors are supported by specially developed motion algorithms to minimise lag and instability.
The lens also features an 11-blade circular aperture mechanism that contributes to the high quality of bokeh in images and has been coated with Sony’s original Nano AR coating to suppress any unwanted reflections, glare, or ghosting in images. The new FE 600mm F4 GM OSS is compatible with Sony’s 1.4x and 2.0x E-mount tele-converters, producing outstanding imaging performance at extended focal lengths[iii] while maintaining fast, precise AF performance.
