DxOmark (Click here) posted the full [shoplink 54957]70-200mm f/2.8 FE GM[/shoplink] test results. And the conclusion is that this is the best ranked 70-200mm lens on the market! This is exactly the opposite conclusion of the negative Lensrentals review. DxO writes:

It’s not only the sharpest and best low-light zoom lens we’ve tested for the a7R II, it also outperforms many FE-mount prime lens options, ranking as the fourth-sharpest lens we’ve tested on the a7R II. Resolution at f/2.8 is first-class between 100 and 200mm, and peak sharpness of over 80% acutance in the field occurs between f/4 and f/8 for phenomenally sharp results on the a7R II.
Costing $2,498 and coming in at 200mm in length, and weighing nearly 1.5 kg, it’s a big beast for the diminutive a7 series of mirrorless hybrid cameras. This ssaid, it packs plenty of high-end pro features for advanced autofocus operation, image stabilization, and all-round top performance in fast-paced environments.

The ne GM lens scores 5 more points than the f/4.0 FE zoom which is still a great choice if price and size matters:

Now let’s hope Sony can ramp up the production of the GM zoom because right now it’s nearly impossible to find it in Stock somewhere:
