When has No IBIS for DSLR become a We Don't Like?

It is no iPhone, just unleash the monster without this excessively glamorous presentation.

This system is getting more and more appealing, not only do they have brilliant RF L line up, but they already have quite a few non Ls with attractive prices, this is going to challenge Sony's leadership.

For video tracking: The Z

It is a situation of Nikon users facing, the DSLR and mirrorless systems still need to be coexisting.

This is a confident vote for DSLR, since Canon has given up this market, perhaps Nikon will surpass Canon to be the biggest DSLR manufacturer of the future first time in decades.

wow, Tamron will be as good as Sigma someday, this lens is so sharp and not too expensive.

Put this lens in front of the iPhone could get better results.

Craig from Nevada: $7,500 is not cheap, but sometimes you get what you pay for.

Many did opt for MFT but left the system after having been waiting for too long for a lens like this to come out.

Perfect time to the game, no one at all asked for this back in 2013.

Platinumkid: Well, it's a lens! Seriously - can anyone spot a difference between pictures taken with D850 (D750) and the DSLR 70-200 and ones of Z7 (Z6) and the new 70-200? This puts Nikon users in awkward position. And many of them didn't make the (expensive) switch. As a result the company itself is in awkward position. All it's effort goes in the new line, while people are clinging to the old ones. As of now Nikon looks like the next victim of the rapidly changing photo landscape. We will see...

AF-D lenses have something that beats all other Nikon's AF lenses is the sentimental value to their loyal users, not supporting AF is an inexplicable act to upset the users who are the reason why the company was successful.

3.5x faster than the i7 not the Xeon.

Canon was in a similar position as Nikon but they turns things around and continue to get out of this awkward situation, actually they are doing good.

The price of this lens will only go up.

Simone S: Dear Dpreview, I think your copy of the Sony GM is obviously faulty and consequently the test is partially flawed... my copy is much sharper wide open on my R4.. better than my old Canon EF version at all focal lengths but in any case I' d like a more compact and lighter 70-200GMII like the Canon RF version even if I wouldn't trade the robustness and the amazing AF speed of the Sony only for the form factor of the Canon..

If that is the case, it is only Sony to blame, all of the four lenses weren't cherry picked, they worked perfectly fine, what they should have done was to add one more category to the test, Lemon Rate.

nandbytes: Can't argue with results here. Nice compressive comparison of a popular lens class.

It would nice to if you could have added the tamron 70-180mm f2.8 which some reviewers (eg: Dustin Abbott) says is sharper than RF or GM version.

3rd parties there days are making really great lenses pushing the boundaries and sometimes even better 1st party lenses.

Sigma Art lenses are sharper than Nikon's.

The smallest mount in diameter starts showing its weakness - forth place in sharpness.

Not including the Sigma, no competition?
