I'm new in E-mount but I already have :

Sony Zeiss 24/1.8 - I rate this lens 8/10
Sigma 56/1.4 - 9/10
Sony 10-18     7/10
Sony 18-135    6/10
Sony 70-350    9/10

But actually I'm happy with every lens I have ;)
Sony A99II with Sony, Minolta, Sigma, Tamron A lenses, Sony A7R with Minolta MD lenses, Sony A6400 with Sony E lenses.

Good to see I am not the only one that likes the 70-350G

I think most people like the 70-350mm. Don't think I have come across anyone that doesn't tbh. Seems to be much loved telephoto addition to the e-mount lineup much like the 200-600mm.

How about adding a lens review to Dyxum? The 70-350 only has two reviews!
Miranda F & Sensorex, Sony A7Rii, A58, Nex-6, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras ...

I have never written a review of the lens here;)
Maybe I will try it one day.

However, it does not get a lot of airtime with "influencers" - only Mark Galer seems to mention it regularly but he is a Sony Ambassador and therefore not unbiassed.

mostly because its an APS-C lens
He claims he's unbiased, don't you believe him?

I think he is as unbiased as anybody else, but he has a relation with Sony making him look less unbiassed. While in fact he can be more honest as he is less dependant on the whims of the Sony marketing department.

I was watching Gerald Undone's video on the Sony FX3 and he said he had to send the camera back and that these are his thoughts - and I was thinking: yes, of course but you won't be too critical because you will not receive a testing copy the next time if you are too critical.

In December NVIDIA send an email to a smaller but still large Youtubber saying they would not provide him with an early copy of a video card because they did not like his methodology - aka they did not like the results he posted.

Like all the PC testers say: look at as many reviews as possible. Reviewers walk a fine line between being honest and keeping the companies happy.

I have no doubt Marc Galer is telling the truth when he says he is using his 70-350G in specific circumstances. So, yes, I believe him.

(also when he was clearly annoyed with the A1 test by the Northrops without mentioning their names )
