  • Summary: I would recommend this lens to anyone. I traded my 70-300G for this lens and although I miss the extra 100mm the image quality more than makes up for it.
  • Pros: IQ, Sharp, Build Quality
  • Cons: Weight

Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 G SAL-70200G review by Airphoto

  • Summary: THE TEST SCORES SLR.GEAR ARE TRUE!! This lens is a good 70-200mm IS works well down to 1/200th at 200mm. The lens is just as sharp as the 70-400mm between 70-400mm at f/4-f/8, but not sharper. IF you use a TC 1.4x the 70-400mm will blow this out of the water!! No question about it Comparing 280 to 300mm the 70-400mm wins and at 400mm the 70-400mm is sharp! with the tc1.4on the 70-400=560mm still sharp!!! If you have to have f/2.8 it is better than the sigma.
  • Pros: Bright superb color rendering
  • Cons: Focus speed is just ok , Not as sharp as price indicates

  • Summary: I agree with most of what was said in the Slrgear review, but I believe they got a bad copy of the lens. My initial lens had the same issues at f/2.8, but was also great at f/4. I had rented one of these prior to buying one so I knew that it could be great wide open as well. After contacting Sony and having the lens serviced, this lens still exhibited soft images at f/2.8 throughout the range (worse at 200mm).
  • Pros: Fast, sharp, great color and contrast, build
  • Cons: Pricey

  • Summary: Image Quality: This is truly the best 70-200 lens on the market. The images that it produces are worthy of the G moniker in every way. I couple it to the A700 and focus is fast and accurate. Images are sharp across the entire f range and focal length. When taking portrait shots the ability to completely isolate your subject and throw the background out-of-focus is priceless. Speaking of out-of-focus elements, the bokeh that this lens renders is just beautiful.
  • Pros: Amazing images. Wonderful bokeh. Top-notch constrution quality. Fast focus.
  • Cons: Expensive. Heavy. Hard to find in Canada. Attracts attention.

  • Excerpt: Крайне желательно защитить линзу фильтром.
  • Pros: Прекрасная картинка. Резкий с 2.8 и дальше больше. Очень шустрый встроенный мотор, и в связи с этим уверенная и быстрая фокусировка. Бленда имеет окно для работы с поляриком. Надежный конструктив.
  • Cons: Цена. Резинка, как и все у Сони, быстро пачкается и тяжело очищается.

  • Excerpt: Это наверно лучший 70-200 2.8 когда либо созданный. :) Довольно компактный (по сравнению с конкурентами). Кольцо фокусировки ходит плавно. Невероятно резкое и детализированное изображение даже на открытой диафрагме. Очень быстрый и цепкий автофокус. Объектив оставил только положительные эмоции. Более дешёвые аналоги от SIGMA и TAMRON не идут ни в какое сравнение.
  • Pros: - Потрясающая резкость и деиализация даже на диафрагме 2.8 - Точная цветопередача - Очень быстрый автофокус - Великолепное качество изготовления
  • Cons: - нет

  • Excerpt: Опыт эксплуатации 8 месяцев. Температуры от +32 до -45, все живое!
  • Pros: Достойная светосила, глубина резкости выше всяких похвал, можно использовать и как телевик и как портретник (при условии достаточности места перед объектом. Для студии надо конечно выбрать с более коротким фокусом). Портреты выходят превосходные еще и потому,что объектив позволяет делать это на удалении, не особо привлекая к себе внимание.Как телевик тоже все на ура!
  • Cons: Тяжеловат, дороговат, но оно того стоит. Ниже -25 фокус только в рукопашную.
