New Sony Gear On The Way for Review! A99 II, A-Mount 16-35mm f/2.8 ZA, 70-400mm G2, and 1.4X Teleconverter

Sony A99 II

Excited news to report! I have some new killer gear coming to the Lab for hard core testing and as promised it’s for you Sony DSLR Camera and A-Mount Lens users!!

To be specific about things we have the Flagship model full frame DSLR known as the Sony A99 II. Next we have the ultra wide angle and fastย Sony Vario-Sonnar T* 16-35mm f/2.8 ZA SSM II Lens! Lastly I got the powerful long range telephoto Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G SSM II Lens plus Sony 1.4x Teleconverter. Oh yeah, now were talking!! Sony A-Mount Lens Guide This Way >>

Now, this is all pro grade gear and there is a method to my madness in these choices. First off, I want to see what the best equipment can do, so I have a baseline when reviewing the more affordable gear. Second, I plan on reviewing the E-Mount versions of these lenses next along with the FE 1.4x teleconverter, because I already tested the FE 2x Teleconverter on the FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM Lens (some Sample Photos Here) . Sony E-Mount Lens Guide This Way >>

This will also allow me to do many comparison articles putting the A-Mount gear vs the E-Mount gear. Head to head style if you will. You know, how does the DSLR perform compared to the Mirrorless and A-Mount optics to E-Mount optics etc…

This next review cycle should be a lot of fun and I really want you guys to come along for the ride! Lets do this together shall we? You can help me by giving me some feedback in the comments area as to what you would like to see. How you would like me to test the gear and what you think I’m doing wrong if applicable, and so fourth… I really appreciate the feedback good or bad guys! I want to do the best job I possible can for you guys, and only you can let me know if I’m meeting your expectations in this regard. I can only try and do my best, but with some input and direction I can fine tune my approach if needed… Thanks in advance for the help!

Closing Remarks

I don’t know about you guys, but I am super excited to try this gear out! I always wanted to review the A99 II and both these lenses, but due to the mirrorless craze they have been put on the back burner for a few years now almost… Well the time has come and we will see how this Pro Grade gear holds up to the SonyAlphaLab treatment ๐Ÿ™‚ If you want to see some other Sony A99 II reviews to get prepared, check out this article here >>
