What Sony tele lens to get?


I've been shooting with my Sony A7ii and FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM for about a year and a half mostly doing landscape and portrait. I am looking into getting a telephoto lens for my kids sports activities. I was at their swim meet over the weekend and boy... I miss my older camera that had a tele.

I've been googling but unable to find a review that compare all Sony FE tele lens. If someone know of one, please post the link. Basically, I am looking at the below list of lens in Sony's line up:

  • FE 100–400 mm F4.5-5.6 GM super-telephoto zoom lens
  • FE 70-200 mm F2.8 GM OSS
  • FE 70-200 mm F4 G OSS
  • FE 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G OSS

I know I know, it may not be fair to compare the above items given the feature and price range.  The reviews I read thus far are mixed but with more favoring the GM.  What i am looking for are feedbacks from those who have used them.  Does it make sense to bite the bullet for the GM or would the lower end item is enough for what I need?

Thanks in advance
