You know, it's stuff like this that make me forget about Sony stumbling around on body updates. What a crazy awesome bleeding edge A-mount lens!

Thanks for this thread.

I second that! Seriously, I am plenty happy with my silver version which I think is just as sharp, but the focusing improvements you mentioned (especially the speed!) are making me drool a bit I must admit. I am pretty sure I can borrow a copy when they are available - I look forward to testing it out shooting my windsurfing and kiteboarding action. (assuming the wind co-operates when I have the lens in my hands lol)

I am also jealous of the white finish! hehe

Awesome shots. Thanks for posting!

Mike

P.S. On a side note, I have never had a problem with my hood. I always use it, and it never comes off in even 40+ knots of wind.

Thanks for sharing, impressive!

I had that "grey" 70-400G I and had no problems with lens hood. But a friend of mine has that lens too and his (I mean lens :-/) hood is falling all the time!

Hi everybody,

I just checked on B&H, the silver version is $1999, the white version is $2199. At least Sony havent whacked the price up a lot. I'm guessing the silvers will start turning up on the used market.

Sadly $2 199 means I will be keeping my silver version, but it is tempting

Great pics Gustav and thanks for the very good "everyday" review.

I agree, if you have the silver version I wouldnt upgrade, however if you were buying your first one then the white looks to be worthwhile.
