Our take on the Sony Alpha FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS

Wildlife and sports photographers will appreciate the exceptional optics and performance of this Sony G Master 70-200mm telephoto lens. A special anti-reflective coating and nine specialized lens elements reduce distortion and aberrations for outstanding high-resolution images, while an 11-blade circular aperture gives you a smoothly defocused background when shooting wide open.

Ultimate control, accurate results

Wildlife and sports photographers will appreciate the exceptional optics and performance of this Sony G Master 70-200mm telephoto lens. A special anti-reflective coating and nine specialized lens elements reduce distortion and aberrations for outstanding high-resolution images, while an 11-blade circular aperture gives you a smoothly defocused background when shooting wide open.

Great photos anywhere, anytime, rain or shine

Perfect for outdoor photography in any season, the lens's dust- and moisture-resistant construction means that if the weather takes a turn, you won't have to pack it in until you're ready. Its focal range and large f/2.8 maximum aperture let you play up your subject by compressing and blurring the background, making it an excellent choice for portraits and close-ups. The maximum aperture remains constant across the entire zoom range, so you'll get consistently well-exposed photos without having to change your exposure values as you adjust focal length.

Stay focused on important details

Sony's quiet dual linear motors ensure fast, precise focus for smooth video rendering and responsiveness during continuous still shooting. Range limiter controls let you restrict the focal range, preventing accidental focus on foreground elements and minimizing time spent "hunting" for focus so you won't miss your shot. Once you've acquired your target, the focus hold button lets you lock the focus where you want it.

Keep it steady

Sony's optical image stabilization works in two ways to give you crisp photos and smooth videos in all kinds of different scenes and lighting conditions. Option one ensures sharp handheld images and longer focal lengths, slower shutter speeds, or in low light. Option two is a panning mode switch that compensates for subjects moving horizontally across the image plane.

As good as everyone elses 70-200 f/2.8s

Kenji from Amherst, NY on 1/13/2019

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've owned several 70-200 type lenses over the years from multiple manufacturers (Tokina, Tamron, Canon's f/4 and f/2.8 versions) and this one is easily as good as the best on the market (Canon's 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II, Albeit that has since been superseded by a Mark III version I have not shot), its big and heavy yes, but for those of us who need the extra stop of speed over the f/4 the price is worth it (And to be honest it doesn't bug me too much, I actually consider this my "lightweight general purpose" telephoto zoom compared to my Sigma 150-600). The autofocusing is extremely fast and accurate, able to keep pace with my very quick Cardigan Welsh Corgis zipping around in the snow on my A7III. Its also one of the lenses that really lets the A7IIIs full capabilities shine. The OSS works a treat, I've shot down to 1/15 at 200 with no issue Sharpness and contrast are excellent all over the range as far as I can tell, granted im shooting the less demanding A7III's 24mp sensor and not the R's 45mp one, but regardless I doubt you'd be disappointed. The only real downsides are the price and the weight, This definitely has me considering the vertical grip for my A7III for when im going to be out shooting with it for an extended period of time and compared to its rivals from Canon or Nikon its a bit pricier, but its worth it for those of us who need that extra stop of speed. If you're considering it. Go for it. You wont regret it.

Pros: Sharp, Extremely fast focusing on my A7III, Excellent contrast, Beautiful bokeh, Excellent close focus and maximum magnification capability

Cons: Price, Size and weight

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

You DO get what you pay for. This lens is NOT cheap nor light weight - let's just get that out first. It's more expensive than any competitors' 70-200 f2.8 lens. But if you are a Sony FF mirrorless shooter, and you want the absolute top-notch quality out of your gear, this lens will not disappoint you. It has great colors and contrast. It has a smooth, beautiful, bokeh. The focus is fast, quiet, and accurate. It is sharp, even wide-open, at all focal lengths. At, 200mm, one may think it could be a bit sharper, but only if you pixel-peep. I used Canon 70-200L II for years, and while that lens was the sharpest I ever used, this Sony lens, to my eyes, is a bit sharper. In short, this lens delivers, albeit at a price. If you want the best 70-200 to go with your Sony FF mirrorless body, this is it.

Pros: Great focal length range, fast aperture, sharp with great colors, contrast, and bokeh.

Cons: Expensive, heavy, expensive :-)

Great buying experience.
