Photozone Review the Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS
They guys over at Photozone have had a chance to test the Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS, a very important lens for Sony and the new A9 given its balance of reach, performance and price…… Unfortunately for Sony though it doesn’t receive a glowing review:
Honestly, the Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS disappointed us a little. You are buying such lenses primarily for its potential at the very long end of the range which is where the performance may not be bad but it certainly doesn’t reflect the promises of a G-class lens nor its high price tag. Now that being said – the center quality is still very good at 300mm and that’s where most of the action is at this setting.
The lens is a bit expensive relative to its performance. If you want to have 300mm, you just don’t have another choice at the moment but if you can live with a little less we’d rather recommend the Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS instead.
So there you have it get the FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS instead (if you can afford it)!
