Comparing Sony G 70-400 Mk 1 and Mk 2 - views needed please
Jan 30, 2014

I have just purchased the Sony G 70-400mm Mk 2 with a view to selling my Mark 1.  The main reason for the purchase was to take advantage of the faster focussing of the Mark 2 since I do a lot of wildlife photography (including BIFs) and also water sports, and in particular Kitesurfing.

After a couple of weeks using this lens it is undoubtedly quicker to grab focus and it seems better at holding focus.  However, I don't think that it is quite as sharp as my Mark 1 lens......

I use it on an A77 and an A99 and have checked microfocus adjustments......

I probably need to conduct some more scientific tests to compare results but was wondering if anyone else has any views on this please?

Thanks....... Gary
