|travelshots#45705 date: May-16-2021|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di USD (A-mount)|
Sony AF 4-5.6/70-400 SSM G (A-mount)
|price paid:||1650 €|
|positive:||Very sharp, close to a prime|
fast AF for a Zoom,
completely useable with 1.4 TC in all AF modes, even 2x TC heplful in a few situations (preferably AF-S).
combines very well with my A7rIV fw 1.2.
Versatile zoom range,
smooth zom ring that covers the whole range in barely a half turn
good tripod collar.
|negative:||Heavy (felt especially in overhead operation), |
foot not compatible to Arca, you need an Arca plate
sometimes noticeable CAs
|comment:||Bought it 4 months ago, when I switched from A-Mount (A99II) to E-Mount. Phantastic zoom, a perfect all round wildlife lens. Image quality and AF exceeds what was possible with my A-Mount zooms. Still very good with the 1.4 TC which adds even more versatility. Sold my A-Mount primes. This lens is good enough for my purposes and much more versatile.|
I did not have any problems with my A7rIV fw 1.2. Great combo!
