Our friend Klaus from Photozone is known to be a very sever reviewer. Unlike so many other reviewer sites he rarely marks lenses with the “highly recommended” badge. So it’s a nice to read that the new Sony FE 70-200mm “survived” his detailed tests and made a very favorable impression:
The Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS is, undoubtedly, a high quality with just a few weaknesses. The Sony lens is not only a looker but the mechanical quality is also truly impressive. It feels exceptionally solid and the control rings feel silky smooth. The weather sealing as well as the supplied tripod mount are also a nice bonus.
He also added that interesting note:
The A7R creates rather massive shutter vibrations that are a game spoilers when using tele-lenses – even with activated OSS. However, the A7 and A7s should be able to exploit the really high potential of the Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS. Therefore highly recommended.
