Surfing the net for comparative reviews between old 70-400 and the new one, I found yhis youtube video.


But even though the reviewer sees better photos with version II, if you take print screens of the last compartive photos, version's I IQ always beat version's II. Check by yourself.

Does any of our members have acces to both versions to perform and show us independent comparative samples of several real world subjects.

I've already tested version II at my local Sony store, and focusing is very very fast... But are the outputs as focused as those provided by the slow focusing versión I?

Thanks in advance,


I trust this reviewer opinion over that dude on your you tube link any day since he does have real images to compare and not captures from a video! Hope you enjoy them sharp images in Gustav's review!
