Pros: It is a G Master and you can see it, sharp even at full opening. Great Auto Focus.

Cons: Adjusting the fire is too sensitive, difficult to use with multiplier. There's no lens block.

Opinion: It's my first extreme zoom, although I own the 70/200 and I don't use it for birds but for landscape. The quality of the optics is excellent but I have some difficulty in focusing, especially at night. The focus ring is too sensitive, I would have liked it a little longer (I don't know if it's the right term). The difficulty of focus is amplified with the 2x especially at 800mm. Very comfortable the wheel that allows you to switch from horizontal to vertical shot (but this I think all zooms). To finish without the lens block I often find it that stretches alone with weight.

Pros: Excellent zoom with a perfect focal excursion in many circumstances, if you do not want to do extreme photo hunting.

Cons: Price, bracket too short

Opinion: Optical quality and superb definition even at full open. The max aperture f4.5 is already lost at 170mm more or less, so better to consider it as if it were a f/5.6! To subsitate the ridiculously short bracket. I took an LCF-101 replacement foot at B&H in the US. Zomm almost all-rounder, superlative sharpness as I said. It's more than the 200-600 I've already reviewed, in my opinion. We can say that the two Sony zooms have different purposes. With the TC 1.4 X goes great and there is no visible performance drop.

Pros: Weight, AF speed, optimum with multiply 1.4, balanced

Cons: Zoom Block

Opinion: Let's start from a point: and expensive but worth all the money spent. Extremely light 1.3 kg with bracket included on the A7 III is also very well balanced. AF and very precise as well as fast this thanks to the update to version 3, before was it fast but not always accurate and every now and then leaked focus on the subject. I tried it with the two multiply 2x and 1, 4x: With the two you lose much detail at minimum f and 800mm, instead with 1, 4x works excellently without losing detail and the minimum f is not affected too much. The construction is excellent despite the materials are not precious but probably was made a choice of weight and balance. Good idea the possibility of having two types of zoom excursion a softer and a tougher but I would have preferred the zoom block, this because more than once it happens that the zoom is "stretch" when it is extracted from the bag.

Pros: Light, crisp, MAF accuracy, minimum MAF distance, MAF speed, no AC, Excellent even with TC 1, 4X (in my case), tropicalized.

Cons: Nobody so far

Opinion: I own it recently but I'm already ready to give my judgement on this wonderful telephoto lens. We Start from the construction that I find not at all Plasticose, but made from excellent materials, the lens hood is plastic or plastic material however robust, I think it was conceived so to make it as light as possible, under this point of view Sony has made Center, the hood itself frontally has a good rubber ring, so that if you need to lean the optics upside down will be protected by the same, there is also a window to handle any filters. The responsiveness and accuracy of the MAF is amazing, no mistake a shot, coupled with my A7III has allowed me to do avifauna seriously with the system mirrorless and with results for me excellent. Excellent the minimum distance of MAF that allows very close shooting of the subjects, totally devoid of AC. It Has a clutch ring for very useful zooming which you can loosen or tighten as needed. The fact of being a zoom makes it really versatile, is multifaceted with 2 TC designed precisely for this tele in addition to the 70-200, I personally have multiplied with the TC 1, 4X to avoid making it excessively dark, I think is the best compromise. The quality from multiplied is almost identical, but allowing to shoot more distant subjects that would not be smooth in range, I recommend without a doubt even in sports, will not disappoint your expectations I am sure.

Pros: Lightweight, ultra-slim, with no aberrations, minimum focusing distance, very good if multiplied

Cons: Cost, perhaps too plastic

Opinion: I took it to replace the Canon 100-400 IS II that I used on A6300 and A7RII with great satisfaction. Canon zoom is excellent, lightweight, handy, multiplies it's a pleasure (TC 1.4 III) and with the minimum focusing distance below the meter, you can also afford some nice macro settings. Used on Sony bodies with the Metabones Smart Adapter V, it focuses really well and discreetly fast, less effective if used with the IV version of the adapter. The new born Sony resembles much like Canon's behavior, it was better like sharpness and, but this was obvious, like speed in focus, especially in pursuit. rnNo regret in the "swap", indeed an improvement I was not sure (Canon is a bomb!) rnDi against the price ( I paid him 600 euros more than the Canon) and some doubt about the very plastic grade construction quality. On this last point, only time and usage will tell if it is just a 'Impression or not. Finally, being a recent design lens, it is virtually free of chromatic aberrations, which is true for Canon too. In conjunction with the A6300, it is a pleasure in terms of speed and convenience, virtually an excellent coupler for the " birdlife also in motion. Used together with the A7RII provides exceptional quality.
