Sony has just announced the FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II, an update to one of its first ‘G Master’ lenses. While the original was certainly well-built, handled well and was fast to autofocus, we weren’t so fond of some of its optical characteristics, and it looks like Sony has really gone all out to make sure this latest 70-200 is up to snuff.
The outside of the lens comes with a few updates, but it’s what’s on the inside that really counts. All-new optics, coatings, focus motors and more add up to an impressive offering. Let’s dig in and check out not only how the new lens looks, but how it compares to the previous model.
