When the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS first launched there was a lot of discussion about whether it was worth the price or not that most likely came from inconsistent production quality since there were also very positive reviews. Now the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS II has hit the market and it seems to be an excellent performing lens with minimal cons. Lens tip just published its full review which you can read here or check out the summary below.
