I'm not interested in switching while my A99ii and A99 are happily working away with the lenses I have. But you've neglected to mention the Minolta 200/2.8, which is another superb lens that E Mount has no equivalent for.

How does that lens compare to the excellent 70-200/f2.8 G.

It's a hell of a lot lighter and more compact to start with, in part because of its clever sliding hood design. Its bokeh is beautiful it focuses really quickly and it's sharp wide open. It also works very well with the matched 1.4x TC. It's a much better tele/portrait lens to travel with when size and weight are important.
