The Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens was announced a long time ago now, and is finally making it’s way into quality reviewers hands 🙂 In this article I’m going to link up all the quality Hands-On Reviews I have found on the web!
The basic’s of this lens are it’s the best possible quality available 70-200mm lens, and a pro grade unit in all regards. Not exactly cheap at $2598 US, but with the killer build quality and fast f/2.8 ultra high quality optics, you do get what you pay for. Also, it was rumored to be over $3k, so the price fair considering other Sony high quality optical prices in my opinion. Two teleconverters are also available for use with this lens and cam provide you a extra 1.4x or 2x depending on your needs. The Sony FE 1.4x Teleconverter goes for $548 US and the Sony FE 2.0x Teleconverter also goes for $598 US.

Sony FE 70-200mm GM OSS Lens Reviews
Courtesy of ThatCameraGuy, A pretty quick review using the Sony A6300 and FE 70-200mm GM OSS Lens recording video of girls soccer at night in relatively low light. Very impressive results to say the least and pushes the auto focus abilities of both the camera and lens for sure!
