Comments about Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 G SSM II Lens:

I still don't understand why this lens costs almost 50% more than the version I 70-200 G did, but I've gotten some excellent photographs with it indoors in low light. Focusing on dancers in low light with my a99 has not been a problem. I just wish it cost less.

When possible I use primes for indoors/low light situations, but if I need to be able to zoom I use this on one body and a 24-70 f/2.8 on another.
