Re: Please recommend a zoom telephoto lens for Sony a77.

I think that you will be better served with the sigma 75-200 2.8-3.5 since it autofocus in all A77 bodys but if you want constant aperture the Tamron 70-200 2.8 would be my bet since its the sharpest 70-200 in A-mount and the slow focus isn´t slow anymore with sony a77. It is lighter than all the other 70-200 and its the least expensive and has a pseudo macro mode. Next would be sigma 70-200 OS version since OS is better than IBIS from Sony (I don´t trust it with longer lenses and I need double the focal lenght rule to work)

The sony G 70-200 is much more expensive, heavyier and probably not so sharp at the long end since its an older design.
