ownership:I own this lens
compared to:SAL 70-200 F2.8 A-Mount, 300mmG Mk2 F2.8.
price paid:£1214
positive:Sharpest zoom lens I have ever known, light, small, cheap.
comment:I own this lens, With the A7R I have used it on and off tripod, and at all shutter speeds, with and without Steady shot. I have not had one photograph with any trace of shutter shock.
I use my 300mmG mk2 F2.8 with a LA-EA3 adaptor, and the Image quality compares with the SEL 70-200F4.
With 36mp and soon to be 50mp,Modern lenses are a must, and for a Zoom they do not come better than this. I am a Kingfisher photographer and the detail and sharpness of this lens in unsurpassed.
