I'm curious about the first-hand experiences of the owners of FE 70-300mm who switched to E 70-350mm. Preferably on a6300 or later body (a6400 or a6600 would be ideal).

I'm sure you are enjoying weight/size savings...

* Do you see any AF speed improvement in AF-C?

* Do you see any IQ difference at 300-350mm wide open?

* Do you miss focus limiter?

* Do you miss closer focus distance?

* What about 1/3 stop difference?

I have a very good copy of the 70-300mm on a6400 and enjoy it quite a bit. Wondering if anyone switched and what you think after you did that.


I just pulled the trigger on the $900 70-350 today.  I sold my 70-300 after I ran a comparison to the 70-200 which proved to be sharper at matching focal lengths.  Looking forward to comparing the 70-350 A6400 to my A9 70-200.
