Re: Telephoto lens for A99

I'd go with the 70-400.  I have found for airplane shots, it's sharp enough to still have good detail when dropping.  I rented the Sigma 50-500, and it's decently sharp at 500mm, if you can step down.  For my shooting, I prefer being able to shoot the 70-400G wide open and crop later.

I don't have a 70-200 yet, mostly because I haven't found a use for it.
