      Excellent 100-400mm for Sony e mount

      The Sony - FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS is an excellent lens for most telephoto needs, though it is a bit slow to find focus in low light situations, and the overall build quality is not as good as the Canon 100-400mm Lii (which is the "gold standard" for this sort of lens), though it is a bit lighter than the Canon version. Mounted on the A7rii, the lens feels a bit awkward due to its size, though it is manageable and the OSS seems to help. I have not tried the lens with a tripod so I can't say how secure the tripod foot is. I would not recommend this lens for use with the Sony A6300 or A6500, since those camera bodies are just too small and there are no additional grips that I am aware of to help stabilize the weight of the lens. Overall this is a good product and I am happy with it, though I will add that Best Buy needs to STOP putting warehouse stickers on the original packaging of camera products, since removing them can disfigure the packaging and that affects the resale value if you later decide to sell your gear on eBay or Craigslist.

      I was looking for a long lens to replace the LAEA4+SAL70300G on my A7Rii. The SEL100400GM is it and more. The SEL100400GM takes full advantage of the advanced AF on the A7Rii. It's fast to focus, great at tracking moving subjects, and sharp as a tack. The functional design is exceptional. It has a removable tripod foot and can be easily rotated from landscape orientation 90 degrees in either direction for portrait orientation while mounted. There are multiple AF lock buttons for easy use in any position. It has the standard AF/MF, range limiter, and optical steady-shot (OSS)switches, plus an extra switch to change the OSS algorithm for normal camera vibration (position 1) and subjects in motion (position 2). There is a sliding door in the lens hood to conveniently adjust a polarizing filter. There is also a variable tensioning ring to make it easier or harder to zoom. This feature is great for keeping the zoom in position when shooting up or down or when carrying the lens mounted to the camera with a sling. The variable 4.5-5.6 aperture is a small price to pay for the 400mm reach.

      Amazing sharpness

      This lens is a beast. It is the largest in the E-mount line up and it is super sharp. The AF is so quiet you can’t hear it. The OSS is very good. With less then 4 ft focus range it has a good macro ability when shooting at 400mm. Using it on a mono pod works very well when needing to steady it at full zoom.

      This new Sony 100-400 lens is great. Used it on my A7RII and lent it to a friend who used it on his A9. Focuses quickly and tracks superbly on the A9. would recommend to anyone...
