(SR5) More bits about the new 70-400mm II G lens (and hints about a surprise)


The new 70-400mm will be white like the just announced 500mm lens you see here on top

My (awesome!) sources contacted me to share some more details about the new lens. First I can safely put an SR5 value on that rumor. And this is actually a very new version of the older [shoplink 11687]Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G SSM lens[/shoplink] lens. It has following new features:
1) The new II version is weather sealed!
2) It has new coatings.
3) It comes in white like the current super expensive 500mm f/4.0 lens (over $12.000 on BH).

But the changes are deeper than you think. The 70-400mm II G lens will actually be the first lens of a complete new Alpha lens line up! And that includes ONE single surprise I cannot unveil yet because I am  still trying to get some more info. But it is a surprise many of you will like. So please stay tuned on SAR. And if you can help me to find out more about the upcoming announcement sent me an email at or use the anonymous contact form on the right sidebar.
