Re: Question on my Sony 70-200mm f2.8 gm lens

You'll get your best answers in the Sony FF E-mount forum. It's more likely you'll find other owners of this lens.

DXOMark ranks the SEL70200GM very highly so you made a good choice of lens. It's unlikely you received a bad copy but not impossible. The latest firmware update does the following:

"This update (version 05) improves the accuracy of the contrast AF at distant shooting, making it easier to focus when the aperture is narrowed down to F11 or higher."

Continue your testing after the firmware update. If you still see a problem then post your question in the Sony forum - with an example photo containing EXIF data.

Just a reminder: Shooting at small apertures (f/11, f/16, etc) will naturally result in a softer image due to diffraction.
