Review of Sony AF 70-200mm f/2.8 G SSM camera lens:

– Superb image quality: This lens delivers outstanding image quality, with sharpness and vivid colors. Even when shooting at wide aperture, the images are sharp all across the frame.
– Solid build quality: The lens is well built and feels sturdy in hand. It is weather-sealed, which adds to the durability of the lens.
– Smooth and fast autofocus: The autofocus is fast and accurate, and the focus ring is smooth to turn. This makes it easy to capture moving subjects with precision.

– No image stabilization: This lens does not have image stabilization, meaning that you will need to have a steady hand or use a tripod to avoid camera shake.
– Slightly bulky: The lens is on the heavier side, which might pose a challenge when traveling or carrying it around for long periods.

The Sony AF 70-200mm f/2.8 G SSM camera lens is an excellent investment for anyone looking to up their photography game. This lens produces sharp and vibrant images with a smooth and fast autofocus system. The build quality is also impressive, making this lens durable and reliable.

    Great A mount lens on an E mount camera Bought this lens for my A7Rii it’s the A mount so I needed the adapter. Got the LA-EA3 adapter after reading reviews that this one works flawlessly and I wasn’t disappointed.
    The lens is fast at focusing and pin point sharp. Used it at a circus performance and the 2.8 is awesome at getting the lighting spot on in Aperture mode. Definitely not disappointed with this purchase.

    GET IT…. if the price is right! First off if you can get this lens for a few hundred less than retail-between $1900-2000 do it! It takes incredible pictures! Still learning how to use this lens with my new A77, but it doesn’t seem too hard to figure out. Build quality is exceptional, but it is a very heavy lens (to be expected for this type of lens) and if you pair it up with a flash and vertical grip it weighs a ton. only complaint is that the rubber used on the focus and zoom rings collects every little spec of dust and dirt like a magnet. Other than that, it is a beautiful looking lens that takes excellent pictures. Oh yeah, tripod mount is kind of a pain in the but to remove.

    Finally!! I’ve wanted this lens for my Sony Alpha camera for a long time now, but couldn’t handle the asking MSRP. This “gently used” lens is perfect. Great condition and I expect years of good use from it. Plus, I can use my 1.4x tele-etender and still have auto focus capability which my 100-400 seris G lens doesn’t allow.
