Sony 70-200mm f/2.8G APO SSM

Available Today

The classic 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. Sony’s version has met rave reviews on a number of sites, as good or better than the Canon or Nikon versions (given the price, it probably should be). It’s the perfect lens for ‘up close’ sports, distant portraits, and dozens of other needs.

It’s sharp as a tack, autofocuses quickly, and really is about as good as it gets.

Let’s face it—everybody has a great 70-200mm f/2.8.

Nikon, Canon, and now Sony. Differentiating between them is splitting hairs, really, but I will say the Sony is at least as good as any of the others. It might be a hair better, it might be just as good.

But for alpha shooters who haven’t had the pleasure of shooting a world class 70-200mm before, this is just a pleasure to use. For sportshooters, it’s even more dramatic compared to the third party lenses in this range. The autofocus is nearly instantaneous and superbly accurate.
