Sony get set to launch 600mm f/4 GM supertelephoto?

Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM

According to rumors, Sony are set to announce its longest telephoto lens for the Sony E-mount next week. The supertelephoto 600mm prime will be aimed at professional sports and wildlife photographers - and will work with its A9 and A7 full-frame mirrorless cameras.

Sony launched its FE 400mm f/2.8 GM last year – and we would expect the FE 600mm f/4 GM OSS to look much the same, and have similar features. It would just be longer, heavier, and that much more expensive.
