So the New Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens is proving to be absolutely killer based on the latest reviews I just rounded up for you guys! Dig in to these reviews and be sure to let me know what you think 😉

I plan on reviewing the FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens and FE 100-400mm GM OSS Lens asap, but I committed to reviewing the Sony A99 II first for those loyal DSLR users that have been left hanging for far to long…

Speaking of my upcoming Sony A99 II Review, please let me know what lenses and accessories you would like me to use!! I plan on creating articles just like I did with the Sony A9 as I use the gear for a few weeks.
After the A99 II review cycle is completed, I plan on reviewing the Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens and FE 100-400mm GM OSS Lens. That is a few weeks away however, so that might change…

My FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens Review >>

So the F/4 version of this Sony lens is absolutely killer I think, and apparently the f/2.8 version is even better!

However, the fact the f/4 version is so much cheaper and offers OSS, makes it totally worth considering! Unless you absolutely need that extra speed for Astro Photography or other super low light work… Be sure to check out my review of the f/4 version to see if it’s up to meeting your needs and the Sony FE 16-35mm f/4 OSS ZA Lens is currently on sale for $1298 @ BHPhoto
