Resource Reviews The 70-200 f/2.8 G Master

ResourceMagOnline's Editor-In-Chief Jaron Schneider doesn't love the name "G Master". Still, in his in-use review of the lens, Schneider concedes that this lens is deserving of the name:

"When I first shot with the upcoming 70-200mm f/2.8 G Master from Sony a few months ago, I knew it was going to be great. My second experience with it just a couple weeks ago did not change those feelings, and I left my time with the lens feeling like it might be the best zoom lens available for the E-Mount system. It’s built exactly like you want it to be, feels great in hand, and captures absolutely beautiful imagery. I’m still not a fan of the “G Master” moniker, but I have to admit… it’s rather masterful."

On build and feel, Schneider writes, "Look, there isn’t much to say here because Sony took a lesson from those around them and didn’t do anything to mess up a good thing. The lens is incredibly balanced, feels amazing to shoot with and, though a tad heavy for those of you who like to go backpacking, it has a pretty understandable and totally expected weight. It’s not monstrously heavy, and feels good in hand."

And wrapping up the review he writes, "The Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 G Master is a stellar lens that I believe performs better than the cameras currently available to it. It is the kind of optic that is future-proof, outpacing the present but will continue to be a phenomenal lens for years to come."
