Re: 2.8/70-200 G SSMII won't focus anymore

What did the OP decide to do ?

Unfortunately SSM motors fail and it sounds like this may be the case with the OP's lens. And sadly parts are either not available for these a-mount lenses or the prices quoted are extortionate.

There are options as others have said. The Tamron 70-200 f2.8 is very sharp as has been discussed.

Also, the venerable Minolta 80-200 HS G f2.8 lens is a total BEAST - all-metal, no SSM motor to go wrong, super-sharp with beautiful bokeh and colors - it replaced my Tamron 70-200 and I could not be happier with it on my a99 and a99ii
