Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens DxOMark Review: Top-Performing Zoom Lens

DxOMark published their Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS lens review and test results: Tested on the 42MP Sony a7RII, the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens achieves an outstanding overall score of 39 points, with a combination of 38 P-Mpix Sharpness, 2.9 TStop Transmission, 0.3% Distortion, -1.7 EV Vignetting and 5μm Chr.aberration – “It is the top-performing zoom lens DxOMark has tested on the a7R II, as well as the fourth-sharpest FE-mount lens overall among both zoom and prime lenses.”

Highlights

  • Outstanding sharpness
  • SSM AF Motor
  • OSS image stabilization
  • Focus lock buttons and limiter switch

Potential Drawbacks

  • Big
  • Heavy

Conclusion from DxOMark:

In terms of the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8, it’s not only the sharpest and best low-light zoom lens we’ve tested for the a7R II, it also outperforms many FE-mount prime lens options, ranking as the fourth-sharpest lens we’ve tested on the a7R II. Resolution at f/2.8 is first-class between 100 and 200mm, and peak sharpness of over 80% acutance in the field occurs between f/4 and f/8 for phenomenally sharp results on the a7R II.

Costing $2,498 and coming in at 200mm in length, and weighing nearly 1.5 kg, it’s a big beast for the diminutive a7 series of mirrorless hybrid cameras. This ssaid, it packs plenty of high-end pro features for advanced autofocus operation, image stabilization, and all-round top performance in fast-paced environments.
