Opinion: I have used it together with the A7 IV and A7R II. It works on both cameras very well, but a shot with A7R II costs 1% percent battery life! The lens is very easy to handle because of the fast and accurate AF. It's just point and shoot. The image stabilization is very effective. You only need to consider the shutter speed to avoid motion blur. The resolution of the lens from 100 to 200mm so good that there is no need for 70-200mm zoom. The build of the lens is so good that there is no risk when buying it used.

Pros:Construction, Full aperture sharpness, autofocus
Cons:tripod mount too short
Opinion:Lens of great quality, built solidly without sparing on materials very comfortable clutch adjustable on zoom, optical yield is very good at all focal lengths and already from maximum aperture, On A7 IV the autofocus is perfect fast and precise. The only drawback the foot of attachment to the stand was better a little longer.
Opinion:I have recently owned this beautiful lens and I must say that it is fun to use it, maybe it will not be as versatile as the 70-200 f2.8 but it weighs less. Many say that the zoom lock is not there instead there, just move the selector on tight and it no longer stretches with the weight alone or by extracting it from the backpack or bag. I was undecided but in the end I am very happy with the choice made that completes my lens park: 16-35mm f2.8 and 24-70mm f2.8.
Opinion:Fantastic optics, I use it on A7III. As for the sharpness, this is very high at all focal points and already from the whole opening, the multiplier 1.4x holds very well. Lightning and even with the duplicator very good, in low lighting situations not from problems. Stabilizer (which if I am not mistaken should work in combination with that of the camera) very effective. Both stabilizer and autofocus practically imperceptible while working. The construction is also excellent, in metal and tropicalized. If we really want to be picky you could pay more attention to some small finishes, the silver 100-400 is easily ruined and the keys /selectors are plastic, but I consider them banality. The only thing I find uneas comfortable is the ring to harden the zoom, in my opinion it would have been much more useful if it had blocked the zoom altogether (like the 100-400 Canon if I am not mistaken), as others say before me, you often find yourself with the shoulder lens stretching itself for weight, but again it is about wanting to be picky and these are secondary things. Overall a fantastic lens that I highly recommend, especially for its great versatility, excellent both for the landscape but also to get closer to the world of wildlife photography (perhaps paired with 1.4x). Given the minimum focus distance of 1m it can also be used for a few macro shots.
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.
