    I ordered this lens from a Japanese seller on June 10th..... it arrived in Ohio this morning. These are the very first shots I took with my A7II. I believe all are F4.

    My resistance to an A7ii is wearing down because of posts like this one.
    I'm gonna have to stop reading these.

    Why A7ii? A7 with this lens can give you the same result.

    For me, it was because i already had such an extensive legacy glass selection to choose from, it made sense to have the IBIS. And i've found it to work incredibly well. Makes shooting my NEX5r with my legacy glass almost painful... once you've had IBIS you won't want to go back :/

    The older I get, the more unsteady I become so the IBIS makes sense to me with my legacy glass too.

    That lens is a bit big for me, but glad you are happy.

    It's half the weight and smaller than the Nikon 70-200. I like a lot.

    Only if you compare it to the f/2.8 model. Since this is a 70-200/4, it makes sense to compare it to the Nikon 70-200/4, which almost exactly the same size. (The Nikon is 1/10" longer and 10g heavier).

    The lens hood is reversed which makes it look much larger than reality.
    I see a UV filter as well.

    I like the lens, for some reason it doesn't get much use.
