Sony Alpha Rumours - 70-200 f2.8 announced 13th Oct ? We hope!

Hi all

Been waiting for this 70-200 f2.8, as it rumoured on SAR to be 1kg , and better image quality, faster autofocus.

I haven't used a Sony 70-200 f2.8 before and many people said the image quality was so so.

But for me the blessing is in the weight as I am getting older and need to save my back! Been in the Nikon camp for a while and finding carrying the 1.4kg 70-200 all day for work is tiring.

With 1kg weight, it sounds like it is similar to the Canon RF 70-200 f2.8.

So at last we can put this lens in our bags upright!

With the hopefully better optics, I hope we can find the 1,4TC-2TC actually usable.

I'm definitely pre-ordering on day 1, given the likely short supply.

Anyone else waiting for this lens?
