I’ve nearly completed the Sony 70-300mm G SSM F/4.5-5.6 review, I say nearly because I’d like to show some real world telephoto shots and comparisons to other lenses, but this time of year in Tucson, AZ the temps stay around 105° plus, and you wind up with massive heat shimmer, which wreaks havoc on telephoto shots. So the long distance outside shots will come later. I do have a pretty good review though, and have some nice examples of the differences in this lens and the much less expensive Sony 75-300mm F/4.5-5.6. The newly designed Sony lens turned in a great performance, especially wide-open where it’s nice and sharp, and has low distortion, ghosting and CA.
When reading the review make sure you make the distinction of the two lenses. The $229 lens starts off at 75mm, and the current review lens starts off at 70mm. I also use the “G SSM” to further try and separate them.
I’ve had to push back the teleconverter reviews for the reasons stated above, but I should have the Konica Minolta AF 17-35mm F/2.8-4 wide angle lens review done the first week of July.
