    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Lightweight, well-made,stellar optics
    200mm end best at f5.6

    I took some shots of a hillside on the other side of Spirit Lake, Mount St. Helens. When i got home, i looked at these pictures, and one can make out the limbs on a small tree, 10 miles away. This shot was taken handheld at 200mm, f5.6, 1/1000s, 200iso

    I bought the A7RII about 2 months ago, and am awestruck by the resolution. I also have the FE 55 f1.8, so i know what sharp is. This lens is also very sharp. The lens foot easily removes to allow an even lighter lens. I don't miss an F2.8 lens at all.
