It’s not much smaller or lighter than the Canon 100-400 II.
Whew, ok, glad that’s over with.
The image quality though, is incredible. I’ve shot with the Canon 100-400 II mounted on a Sony A7R II with a lens adaptor and the Sony version blows it out of the water in terms of image quality. Not to mention the focus which works perfectly with all of Sony’s bells and whistles like AF during video and Eye-AF.
While build quality isn’t quite up to Canon standards, it’s almost there. I wouldn’t feel shy shooting with this guy in the rain or the snow. Living in Alaska, I have to be cozy in these conditions or I’ll end up sipping more hot cocoa than snapping hot photos. (groan, that was terrible, sorry)
The image stabilization (OSS in Sony-speak) is also very good. I’ve gotten tack-sharp shots at 400mm and 1/100th of a second. (I’m sure I could get them at even slower shutter-speeds, but I’m often also trying to stop motion)
The only real negative of this lens is the cost. However, it’s a brand new optic. I’d expect it to sink by a few hundred dollars in the coming year.
If you need the reach, just buy it already, you won’t be disappointed.
Has three assignable buttons one can use in portrait/landscape orientations. Detachable foot. Slide door on hood enabling access when wanting to adjust circular polarizing filter--all very practical.
The focus ring is buttery smooth, as is the focal length adjustment ring--very good for video use.
The optical image stabilization works seamlessly on my A7RIII. At 400mm, I have been able to take sharp images hand held at 1/80th of a second shutter speed.
The lens is very very sharp at all focal lengths, which is why I said "Why Buy the 70-200 GM When You Can Have the 100-400GM?" If you need a telephoto zoom for portraits in low light, this is not your lens. But I feel very comfortable saying this lens would make an excellent portrait lens in studio and outdoors in good lighting. Don't forget 400mm at 5.6 isolates the subject and blows out the background just as well as 135mm or 200mm at f/2.8. No need to worry so much a HSS to get that effect, either.
Have hd bad experiences with 3rd party sellers, so I bought this lens directly from Amazon services. The lens arrived in a brand new box--no scratches, no sign of ever having been opened or tampered with. Thank you Amazon.
If you're considering doing wildlife photography the combination of this lens with the teleconverter is just outstanding. The effective 560mm length has plenty of reach and is extremely clear. The photo of this hawk was taken from about 20 feet away (he landed in a tree I just happened to be under) and slightly cropped (maybe 20% taken off) but no filters or any other adjustments.
