Ideal Lens for Outdoors
SAL70300G2 29/06/2015 by vchan (USA)
I got this lens to complement my SONY16-50MM f/2.8 on my A77M2. I mainly use it for nature photography. The construction is a perfect balance of weather-sealed solid construction without being too heavy to carry along on hikes. (Of course f/2.8 would be better, but imagine the weight!) The auto-focus is silent, quick, and tack sharp - deserving of its G lens designation. It's easy to catch birds in flight. The bokeh is beautiful. This lens reminds me why I still have a DSLR in spite of ever improving iPhone cameras. Although I would not recommend this lens for indoor use (small aperture and zoom is too long on a crop sensor to be practical indoors), I did find that the G lens optics consistently gave me beautiful candid shots when I could throw a bit of light on the subject with a flash. This is a nice bonus. My only complaint is that the zoom ring and focus ring are in opposite locations compared to my other SONY lens. This actually caused me to miss a few shots. Why SONY did not standardize on this is beyond comprehension but I'm still going to give it 5 stars for everything else SONY got right on this lens.
Great addition to the camera bag.

Just received this lens and have been happy with its performance connected to my A7R(with LA-EA4 adapter) and A77II. Images have been crisp throughout the range, and autofocus is highly accurate and quick! It will serve me well in terms of wildlife photography here in northern Canada.
