TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2024

BEST TELEPHOTO PRIME LENS

Sony FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS

Steadiness at lower shutter speeds; versatility in all focusing modes; lightweight for long working days; and fast these are attributes sought by working pros in a tele lens when covering sports, special events and wildlife. TIPA editors agreed that this GM class lens ticks all the boxes, with an added special feature of an 11-blade diaphragm for exciting and distinctive bokeh effects. Delivering impressive resolution and sharpness, even whilst using tele-converters, precise image capture is enhanced by fast, reliable and quiet operation, with three optical stabilisation modes including ones for panning and fast subject capture. Truly lightweight, the lens weighs in at 3.2 lb. (1.45kg) and measures 10.4 inches (0.26m), resulting in balanced and smooth operation when working handheld or on a tripod when capturing video or stills.
