Sony announces the FE 70-200 f/2.8 GM II – but will it be a worthy replacement?

Sony has just announced its newest lens in its G Master lineup – the Sony FE 70-200 f/2.8 GM OSS II. The updated 70-200mm promises faster autofocus, advanced features for videos and a 29% reduction in weight.

While the original Sony FE 70-200 f/2.8 GM OSS is one of the best 70-200 lenses, it’s fair to say that it’s a bit of a breeze block. Yes it produces high-resolution images thanks to its top-quality optics, but the thought of having to carry it any distance was enough to put anyone off. Not to mention the fact that even now, five years after it was released, it will still set you back $2,598 / £2,129 / AU$3,299.
