The best modern lenses are sharp, fast, and light. Toss in cutting-edge auto-focus and electronic image stabilization, and it’s easy to see why they so often outshine their classic counterparts. Nowhere is this clearer than in the case of long lenses.    

Sony’s FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS is the lightest 300mm F2.8 lens available for mirrorless full-frame cameras. Part of Sony’s G Master series of lenses, the FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS offers the highest image quality of Sony’s entire lineup. It’s also a joy to handle.    

If you photograph action, sports, or birds, this one’s for you.

The Perfect Companion for Your FE 300mm F2.8 GM OSS Lens 

If you’re in the market for an Alpha series camera to mount your FE 300mm F2.8 on, you can’t do much better than the Sony Alpha 9 Mark III today.  

Announced alongside the FE 300mm F2.8, to mark the 10-year anniversary of Sony’s introduction of full-frame mirrorless systems, the Alpha 9 Mark III has a lot going for it. What sets it apart, though, is the global shutter. The Alpha 9’s sensor reads every pixel simultaneously, eliminating annoying rolling shutter issues that ruin a perfect action shot.
