Sony filed two new lens patents in 2017 and published now this May:
- Sony FE 500mm f/4 GM Lens
- Sony FE 600mm f/4 GM Lens

Sony FE 600mm f/4 GM Design:
In addition to the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS lens, the new Sony FE 500mm f/4 & 600mm f/4 GM lenses are expected to be the ideal lenses for wildlife & sports photography for Sony a9 users. Guess they will be released at least half year before 2020 Tokyo Olympic Game.
Tony Northrup shared his opinion about these two new super telephoto lenses: “These are really important as they’ll allow Sony to compete against Canon and Nikon for high-end wildlife shooters. They’re also key lenses for some pro sports photographers.”
