Re: Which 70-200 f2.8 with A77ii for basketball?

I've owned both Tamrons and the Minolta:

Tamron Di Macro - this is a fairly sharp lens at a great price but for any type of action I'd choose other lenses. It's not that it can't be used for action; it's that others make things much easier.

Tamron USD - this is a great lens. It focuses quickly and is sharp. After much research I purchased this lens over the Sony G1.

Minolta APO HS - By all accounts this lens focuses as fast as any other lens in this range. Mine was very slight sharper than my Tamron.

If it was my decision I'd probably go after an SSM G2 if I could find one for $1200 or slightly more (I've seen a couple in this range). After that it's a bit of a toss up. I was happy with the USD and am happy with the Minolta.
