There's a lot of talk about weight, cost, size and the one extra stop of aperture. Not much talk about image quality, does the G Master not make up for it's downsides with better image quality, contrast and sharpness? Or is the f/4 just as good minus the stop?

You may have a look to this article from Lens Rentals, in few words, they say that there are better 70-200mm F4 out there, please note that the Sony lens was released when the FE mount was launched and there had been a lot of improvements since then.

I’m happy with mine but I’m not a pixel peeper, I have used the F2.8 and it is a bit sharper however the added weight is not convenient as a travel lens which is the primarily use of the 70-200mm in my case.
