Great for daytime outdoor sports

So how does Sony’s longest FE lens work? I test out the new Sony 70-300mm FE Lens. I compare it to my Sony 70-200mm f/4 lens that I have had for a while.

Comparison Results 200mm f/4 vs 300mm f/4.5-5.6

  • 300mm overall has better sharpness especially in the corners, tie in the center
  • 300mm wins for C.A.
  • 200mm wins big for contrast especially at 70mm, the 300mm gets much better at 200mm for contrast
  • I used Lightroom’s default corrections they both looks fine for vignetting.
  • If you don’t use the 300mm lens wide open at 70mm, I would say it’s the better for outdoor sports during the day.
  • The 200mm is larger than the 300mm.
  • The 200mm is white which screams pro, sometimes I don’t want to be seen as a pro sometimes.
  • 300mm extends out when zooming the 200mm stays it’s size

Slow to focus like any really long lens.
