A77 and 70-400 G II. Any experience?
Aug 30, 2013

I'm looking for a new lens for a trip to Africa. I tried 70-400 G II in my A57 and compared it with my cheap 75-300 at my local Sony store, but the comparative full zoom samples (a distant cellular antena) didn't justify the $ 2,000 more, nor the extra weight (I just take handheld photos).

I wonder if on an A77 with its 24 Mp sensor this two lenses really shows significant differences in full zoom outputs. Can anybody show comparative samples?

If $ 2,500 70-400 G II doesn't show such a big differrence with excellent $ 250 Sony 75-300, wich use(s) justify to pay such a big difference?

Thanks in advance,

Ed
