positive:- low weight
- compact size
- AF performance (including tracking and Eye-AF)
- sharpness
- very effective stabilization with panning mode
- not white
- 67mm filter size
negative:- zoom ring turns the wrong way
- a bit of vignetting
- corners not perfectly sharp but this is rarely an issue for what I'm doing
- overpriced tripod ring, get one of the knock-offs if you want one
comment:This replaced the SAL70400G1 when I completed my switch to E-mount. It's lighter, stabilized and has quicker AF than my old G. It's so compact that I actually prefer an L-plate over the VG on the camera. IQ is awesome, center sharpness is excellent. This works really well as a lens for field hockey or other turf sports in combination with the A7III. I have no longing for the Sony G equivalent, not worth the extra money, IMHO.

comment:Just got this lens to complement my Tamron 70-180mm lens. Very impressed so far, as it weighs in at just 2 1/2 pounds!! Balances well on my Sony a7iii, perfect for hand held photography. Auto focus is quiet and accurate, and eye focus works extremely well. The image quality is outstanding, specially at the long focal length. Also impressive so far is the legendary bokeh! Hard to believe such a great lens can be had for under one grand, highly recommended.
