ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Minolta 70-200 f2.8
price paid:SEK10990(about 1338$
positive:Perfekt with the a7RII with battery grip as a walkabout etc.
Much sharper than the Minolta 70-200 f2.8, but ok it's an older lens, on par with the Sony FE 24-105 f4.
negative:Lenshood: Kind of narrow, forget a 77mm and step-down to 72mm, and no hatch for adjustable filters.
New info: Even a 72mm adjustable filter will not be able to fit with the hood on, and more of if you attach this type of filter you can't attach the hood.
comment:Lovely lens.
