ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Sony FE 100mm 2.8 GM
Sony FE 90mm 2.8 G
Sony FE 100-400mm GM
price paid:$2347
positive:Supersharp, like 5+ at f1.8 even out in the corners.
Very fast AF, even faster than the 100-400 GM.
Fits the a7RIII as a glove, and feels just right when used with the battery grip.
negative:Not as nice bokeh as the 100mm STF, but very close.
Can't use Sony's TCs???
No OSS but seems to work very well with the IBIS.
comment:Love it.
Can use the Kenko AF Extension Tubes 10, 16 and 10+16mm and still very fast AF and exceptional sharpness.
