      Comments about Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Lens:

      Just rvcd my lens from B&H and as usual perfect delivery.

      Don't miss this lens, it is amazing on the A7R and A7S. I can't take this lens off my camera, its that good. Rivals the Canon 70-200 mark II in all catergories. Opens up a whole new world for the A7S and A7R.

        Comments about Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Lens:

        Great lens, it is a great addition to the FE lineup. I was worried it would overwhelm the A7, it doesn't. After a few weeks of use I'm really enjoying the versatility of it, I'm using it more than I had anticipated. Once again while it is not a cheap lens, you seem to get what you pay for. Great quality.

          I have not had product for more than one week. With that said,it seems well built,nice optics threw all focal ranges.
          So far so good,but will review more later with more use.

            Comments about Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Lens:

            I received the lens, put it on my Sony a7R, and shot an aerobatic show. Of course, acutance is limited by hand-holding, manual focusing error, airplanes moving at 40 kt to 200 kt -- but most images show fine detail on the airplane when the image is a big loop of smoke and a tiny aircraft -- I printed 17 x 22 inch prints that are wonderfully sharp.

              I compared this lens to my Canon f/4.5-5.6, 100-400mm lens, the Canon 70-200mm F/4 and the Tamron f/4-5.6 70-300mm lens and in each case the Sony lens showed superiority in sharpness, color contrast and quickness in focus.

                Provides professional quality results. Excellent sharpness at all settings. Great contrast. No noticeable distortions. Lightweight and easy to carry around. This lens is with me on all nature hikes now. User manual could be improved regarding use of the focus hold button. Would also like another Sony zoom lens of the same caliber with a longer reach (400mm or higher).

                      I bought this lens for my a7 which i never regret. The picture quality from this lens is amazing. The construction of this lens is a top notch and built like a tank. I don't find it huge or heavy and it complements well with the body of the camera. I screwed my camera strap in the lens tripod handle when I carry this lens to support the camera body.

                      This lens adds to the versatility of the FE mount Sony cameras. I am very happy with the quality of this lens. It is somewhat heavy and large compared to the very small size of the camera. You will need a foot-plate to use it on the tripod because it is much heavier than the camera. Another caution is that one will have to hold the lens rather than the camera when carrying it while attached to the lens.

                      I am happy with the performance of the lens so far.
