Using the Sony 70-200mm in the Field
Took this beast with me on a trip out West and it was terrific for its intended purpose. I was able to photograph animals and waterfalls perfectly and the results were really sharp and beautiful. The focusing motor is so quiet, you sometimes look down at the lens to see if its really working. It is a bit heavy but well worth it. Saw several of them on other Sonys but also Canon.

Hoard all your nickels, dimes, and quarters. Do everything necessary to get this lens. You simply get what you pay for and this lens is worth the expense. The first picture I snapped with this lens on my a77 made my jaw hit the ground. I mounted it on my a77 and pulled it up to capture a low light shot of my daughter without giving any thought, just wanted a quick pic. No flash, in a huge hurry, very low light....WOW! She looked like she was about to walk right out of the photo. Thanks to a hard drive crash a few days later, I lost all of those great photos (now I back up immediately.) The lens is heavy, which is exactly what you should expect from such a large piece of equipment. Solid build, great feel in manual focus without creep, handy focus limiter, and a decent lens hood.
Have used it 4 times. Great shots very nice even Bokeh. Less expensive than others pro lens. Very sharp With a77 gives a 300mm 2.8 effective. Great for short to medium distance wildlife. Great for grand kids. Can stay far enough back to capture natural shots without a flash. Highly recommend.
My favorite lens, pictures are sharp and clear. The lens is constructed very well and operates very smoothly. Well worth the expense.
Great lens, you will keep this lens for a long time. It not everyday lens since it's heavy but it really make different when you using it.
I have been using sony for 5 years. This lens is one of the best lens in sony lenses family. Due to its internal focus system, it gives you the opportunity to get more close with the subject smoothly and quietly.
Excellent bird pictures.
This is a two part review - first, the lens is worth every penny. Very stout and fast. I don't think that its weight should be considered a con. It's to be expected of a lens of this construction and size. Bokeh is silky smooth, focus is fast and quiet, but that's all been said before here. Any owner will love this lens.[...]
This lens can provide a photographer for what they are looking for. It has a silent focus motor and focuses quickly where you need it.
Not a lot of use so far.
Great lens, awesome IQ, Fast. My only problem has been with the focus range switch which is easily moved out of position while holding the lens.
