Your view of the FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS

So lets forget about size, weight, and price. They are what they are. That is the cost of entry for a lens like this.

I am considering getting one finally to use for event and sports shooting for my Sony system where I know it the right focal length and the speed are what I need.  Have a huge amount of experience with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II on my Canon systems.

So what is my question? The question is what do I have to watch out for with this lens? How does it perform? What are strengths and its weaknesses? I have read the reviews but most are old from when it came out where everyone was in love with the fact that Sony created the GM family. Its been a few years now and I am wondering how owners that have had it feel about it 1 to 2 years later. Also wondering what I should watch out for?

If you have experience with one I would love to hear from you. Thank you in advance.


p.s. I have adapted my Canon to my Sony bodies but I want something that can focus faster and allow my A9 to shoot at high frame rates. So that is why I want a native lens.
