Lens Description: The new premium 70-200mm G Lens covers a generous zoom range of 70-200mm and is an ideal choice for travel photography and long-range shooting.The innovative optical design of the new zoom reflects its G Lens pedigree. Two ED glass elements are combined with three aspherical elements for high resolution and contrast throughout the entire zoom range, minimizing distortion and color aberration.Like the new Carl Zeiss prime lenses, the 70-200mm Gmodel has a circular aperture that enables smooth, professional quality background defocus, and maintains a constant F4 maximum aperture for plenty of brightness at all zoom settings. It also features Optical SteadyShot to cut the effects of camera shake while shooting.

One of my favorite lenses, I bought it to pair with my Sony A6000 for wildlife photography in Asia. The combo gave me a much appreciated 300mm focal length thanks to the APSC sensor. While the aperture may be limited in some occasions, the price, weight and most of all image quality largely make up for it. Even paired with the small A6000, it is very easy to use thanks to its weight, and I take it with me almost everywhere during my trips.
It is very sharp, nicely built, and produces some nice bokeh in the longer focal range.
I guess by now you get my point, highly recommended!
5/5 rating in my opinion
can it be 6/5?
