I love it but ...... what would that shot have looked like with the 70-400g2?.....or the 70-200/2.8 GM with 2x tele? I think these questions everytime i shoot with the 70-300

I tell you what I'm wondering! what would it look like via the Minolta 400mm F4.5!!! The a99ii must have something to wear ;)
and Minolta glass back in the day was my favorite glass of all time. This is way before you were born I bet but then I had Nikkor and Minolta and always preferred
the KM render.

I only find myself asking this at 300mm. The lens is excellent from 70-200, but noticeably soft at 300mm....and I'm not usually picky about sharpness.

Great shot either way medicine man!

Mystik I ignored the 70-300G for a long time. Poof used it in Iceland and I took notice. There are times when the 70-400Gii is a tad heavy on the A7Rii; works a better charm on the a77ii and as
alluded to earlier will probably live on the a99ii in December.
So I do believe our 70-200/4 is sharper at 200mm than the 70-300G is at 300mm but at 300mm the 70-300G holds its own, in that I'm going to use it. I also have the EOS 70-300L and I have to
give the nod to the Canon :( But if your wanting all the goodies (like I ever use eye focus) the 70-300G is a pleasure......I just wish it came with (or could add) a tripod mount. But for the monies
it's not bad.

Anyway it is what it is and currently I'm on a shopping spree via Japan e-bay for a-mount lenses.

I hope you dont think i was critiquing the pic ... I love the pic.... I think you know im not in love with the 70-300 and I really want to get reach so I dont have to buy the Olympus route. those 70-400g2s look sharper than the 70-300 and I so miss my 70-200 for the solid speed and sharp

No argument the 70-400G2 is a cut above and a dollar or two above. I'd rank it equal to my 500ISii or 400DOii at 400mm and that says a lot. The 300ISii wins over them all though 300mm as you know just aint enough. Now back to ebaying the 400/F4.5 :)

I'm no a real big super telephoto guy so the IQ at 300mm doesn't bother me at all. I'm shooting mostly family stuff at 300MM, so not usually anything critical.

It certainly holds its own at its price, and most importantly for my uses, for the size of the lens. The sharpness at 300MM only stands out because you see how much better it is at 200MM. I do plan to get the 70-200GM at some point for paid work, but I think the 70-300 will still have its place since I hate lugging 70-200 zooms around.

+1

I think IQ is certainly on the level of the 70-400G, not as good as the 70-200's which are typically prime sharp, but large and difficult to lug around. The 70-300 is similar in size to an adapted 24-70 f2.8, completely different class in size, half the weight of the 70-400G....

either way, the lens performs best all around the frame stopped one or two ticks. I find it's sufficient, even for landscape work. It may not have the bite of primes, but 300mm in such a small form factor, doesnt exist.

Here is another before and after of the beautiful Maui cliffs. My original edited version was missing something so I took some creative license to add some drama.

First reviews of the new Samyang 14mm f/2.8 FE autofocus lens

Samyang has two FE autofocus lenses in the range: The 50mm f/1.4 and the 14mm f/2.8. The latter got reviewed for the first time:

Albert Dros (external link) writes:

The new Samyang 14mm f/2.8 designed for E-mount beats the old version in almost every aspect AND it has auto focus that could be important for some people. If you’re looking for a good fast wide-angle prime than this lens is currently a good bet, especially if you’re looking at the price. If you plan on using the lens for only astrophotography landscapes than the old one might be a better choice because of the better sharpness wide open. Again, a prototype was used for this review.

ePhotozine (external link) writes:

14mm is an exciting and powerful focal length for both a wide range of creative photography and for architectural record shots. Given the high quality of the results from Samyang’s second AF lens and the relatively modest price it makes the Samyang AF 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC a very attractive proposition.

Photographyblog (external link) writes:

The price of the Samyang AF 14mm f/2.8 FE is undoubtedly very attractive given the fast f/2.8 aperture, complex construction, and the quick and quiet auto-focusing, which makes this lens worthy of our Highly Recommended award.

To be honest, I'm also curious about the Samyang 14mm F/2.4 Premium MF (external link) lens, since it's also available for Sony E-Mount. And that MTF chart looks awesome.
