FE 100-400 / 4.5-5.6 G Master

The High Quality and Versatile Long Range Zoom





Too much has been said about this fantastic G Master zoom. This lens has very outstanding image quality and a very useful tele zoom range of 100-400mm, which I personally find more useful than 70-200 (although the G MAster 70-200 is faster a f2.8 throughout the zoom range) for most events shooting.








 African Tulip, Green Corridor, A7R2, f8 1/500 @244mm, ISO 320, MT190CXPRO3/BHQ2, 16 Mar 2019


Grey Heron, Satay by the Bay, A7R2, f9 1/500 @345mm, ISO 320, MT190CXPRO3/BHQ2, 5 Jan 2019. 



The 100-400 is compatible with the two teleconvertors SEL14TC (1.4x) and SEL20TC (2x). Most of the time I would prefer to use the 1.4x, and only under sitaution that I have no choice then I will consider the 2x.








 The following shot with TC 1.4, still very good quality.

Male Little Fiddler Crab, Pulau Ubin Chek Jawa, A7R2, f14 1/500 @560mm with TC1.4, ISO 1000, 13 April 2019



The following two also shot with TC1.4, but quite desperate so used A7R2 in APS-C mode to crop further.


Grey Heron, Sungei Buloh, A7R2, f8 1/1250 @560mm with TC1.4, ISO 2000, APS-C mode, 5 Jan 2019. 


 Juvenile Olive Backed Sunbird, A7R2, f11 1/500 @560mm with TC1.4, ISO 800, APS-C mode, 4 May 2019.


The next one shot with TC2x, quality still very good.
