Do you own the Sony 200-600mm lens? Are you thinking of purchasing it? Here are three awesome accessories that make a great lens ever better.
Not long after the Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS lens was announced, I noted just a small number of shortcomings with it. First is the lack of a zoom lock or tension adjustment mechanism to keep the lens at 600mm. On top of that, it only takes an extremely minor turn of the loosely tensioned zoom ring to go from 600mm down to 500mm and below. For this I came to realize that a LensCoat Lens Cover has the solution built right in.
Second, and who knows why, Sony still has yet to adapt built-in Arca Swiss plates in any of their tripod feet for telephoto lenses (something Tamron has with their much less expensive 150-600mm). Enter the Kirk replacement foot, the option I chose over two other similar products for the lens.
The third accessory isn’t so much making a correction as it is getting the most out of a very portable setup. Check out the latest video above from my YouTube channel to get all the details on my recommendations.
