    None

    I have never used such an amazing lens before. It is tack sharp and combined with my a850 and a77 it really shines. Whilst it is a very good prime lens for protraits find it an excellent lens for abstract and general work too.

    Yes it is expensive but you will be hard pushed to find a lens that is as good as all around as this one. Quality.

    Weight

    I would recommend this lens to anyone. I traded my 70-300G for this lens and although I miss the extra 100mm the image quality more than makes up for it.

  • Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6G SAL-70400G

    Heavy

    I traded my 70-300G for a 70-200G for the F2.8 which has proven useful but after a while I began to miss the 100mm. I was not going to let go of the 70-200mm so I dug deep and bought this lens.

    It was a safe purchase and I was not disappointed, it shines in all the right places and the extra 200mm is a real bonus.

    The one thing it is not is a walk around lens, it is heavy at 3lbs.

    Recommend, yes, yes, yes.
