Which sony 70-200mm for A7?
« on: August 21, 2014, 05:50:17 PM »
I was wondering if you guys are using an A mount 70-200 with adaptor or the new Fe 70-200 on your a7 cameras? I can see the downside of the e mount being only F4 not F2.8 but I think it is a more compact lens overall which suits the small a7 bodies. The price of the e mount is good as well. Any images you have would be great to see.

Thanks I should have looked in the lens section first.

Personally, I wouldn't consider anything other than the FE version. I bought one and I am very happy with every aspect of its performance. I'm used to Canon L lenses and this Sony G lens can hang with that company. Sure, its f4, but for most applications that's fine and the OSS performance is excellent. An adapted lens will be much bigger and slower to use. I wrote about it here (http://thephotofundamentalist.com/?p=876) and have a few sample pics up there from a trip to Iceland.
